    On the plus side, I finished the Garton LITTLE BOOK today, and it was a blast. Plus, no proofing errors, no pages glued together, no issues of any kind.

    I remember the days when there seemed to be a new small-press Garton book announced on a weekly basis. We could do with a little more new Ray in our collecting/reading lives these days.

    Wow. That looks... terrible, frankly. Absolutely Amateur Hour. There is just no good excuse to put out a product like that. What in the hell is going on over there? Mine should come today, and if it's like that? I might cut my losses and bow out now, before the last few are wrapped up. Tom and Elizabeth are good folks, but- this is getting ridiculous.

    Sounds and looks like it. I haven't gotten mine yet to compare the material or see if my cover is off center but I can't wait to get it and do the unboxing!

It looks super cool being bright pink and with one of the better cover logos. I don't think I've read anything in this book so I may read this one out of order.
    Out of curiosity, does your copy look like this one with the cover text and art off-centered? I was just wondering if they are all that way or if this was an anomaly.

    CD's are sitting in the warehouse. We'll probably get to shipping them next week.

Want to make sure to see if I need to contact them. It seems they have been quick to sell copies for people who didn't pay for preorders recently.

    The ones that came with the book only had a paper sleeve; LE was an unsigned CD and lettered had a signed CD. What I posted was a CD released by the musician himself, with cover art done by Jim Balent, and as far as I know unrelated to Cemetery Dance.

    I have the CD with my copy, but whoever I bought it from only provided a paper sleeve, no plastic case, unfortunately.

He's most popular with an aging demographic that either already has his books or are looking to get get rid of his books as they downsize, and that's had the expected impact on price.

    I have both the limited and lettered of Live Girls, but my limited copy does not include the CD. However, the musician that did the music for the CD released some number of copies on his own. I discovered this purely by chance as I was browsing Ebay and forgot to limit my "ray garton" search to books.

    I did not know that existed. Something to add to my want list!

    Edit: That's less than a hundred each.
    I hunted for Live Girls for a long time and the prices were always ridiculous. Then one day I found a pristine copy with the compact disc for a steal and grabbed it. I have since seen it available for reasonable prices. Not sure why but the price on that one dropped a while back.
