    However, I did pick up these frames (get them a little wider than your prints) which we have a variety of prints on the wall hung with AND we've actually swapped them out since they're fairly simple to do. One thing that has made life easier, and I think it takes up less space, is that I started storing as many of my prints flat as I could. I bought a portfolio which works really well. I have three of them for all of our prints of varying sizes.

    I do own three of the CD Doubleday Years prints that in all honesty, I should have never bought. I have no idea what to do with them. Also own Suntup's Eyes of the Dragon prints, which I also don't know what to do with, BUT they did allow me to get Misery so they definitely earned their price.
    Thanks for those ideas! Really appreciate it.

    Just received my 2021-2022 Holiday gift from Suntup. Looks amazing. Love the art prints that were chosen. Not exactly sure what I'm going to do with them or where I am going to put them yet as I normally don't order/collect this sort of thing; however, I'm sure I will figure something out. Worst case, I guess I can always tuck them behind my current Suntup section on my bookcase. Random question, but, do any of you do anything with your art prints other than frame them? I'm not the most creative person when it come to decorating or that sort of thing; so, perhaps others might be able to provide me some ideas that might not normally occur to me.

I finished this book on a flight home from Salt Lake City and I think I actually laughed out loud when the twist was revealed.
    I’d heard the same thing, but I heard it associated with Hannibal Rising, the prequel that Harris wrote a few years after Hannibal.

    What I heard was that Dino DeLaurentis owned the movie rights to the character and was going to do a prequel & wanted a novel written along with the movie, either by Harris or someone else.

    In the end, Harris conceded, & wrote the novel Hannibal Rising, which he never really wanted to write in the first place.

    Well, that title was nominated for both and Vonnegut's daughter is an artist, so it checks out on all fronts.
    If so, I'll go for the Artist Edition. It's time I read this one again. I know I read it back in the '80s, but I don't remember it at all.

    I definitely wouldn't mind if it is Slaughterhouse Five. It's one of those books that I've always meant to get around to but still haven't read. This would give me a good reason to finally pick-up a copy.

    Wow, I had never heard that before. That really sucks for Harris. I guess he/his agent never expected Silence to become the hit movie that it was which is why I'm sure that the characters were optioned. Wonder if that production company would get away with that today as people right now seem to be a bit more sensitive to that type of thing at the moment.

    I actually never got around to reading Hannibal. I had always planned to read it; however, I made the mistake of watching the movie beforehand which completely stunk IMO. Because of that, I never went back and actually read the book. For that reason, I would be excited if Hannibal ends up being the announcement as it would finally give me a reason to read it. I also love the idea of having a complete Suntup "Lecter" set.

    Everything I have ever read about HANNIBAL suggests to me that I would not at all enjoy it, so I’ve never bought it. I don’t think this Suntup edition will change that, but we’ll see.

    I think I am in the minority on this, but I rather liked the ending.

    #1 is clearly Hannibal. King referred as The Exorcist and Hannibal as the two scariest books he has read at one time.
    #2 Since The Omen was a novelization of a movie I do not expect that to be the title. I have no clue what it is but hope it is not The DaVinci Code.
    #3 Le Guinn matches the description. Gaimans American Gods would also fit. The fact that it is not signed by the author pushes me to lean into Le Guinn.
    I hope number two isn't the Da Vinci Code as well. I didn't make that my guess as I didn't think it would fit the horror franchise part of the clue; however, maybe I am incorrect and people do consider this series to be horror. Lets hope not!

    Any guesses regarding today's Suntup announcement schedule? I'm terrible at them, but, my guesses are below...

    1) Stephen King once referred to this book as “one of the two most frightening novels of our time. I cheated and put that quote into the old google machine. Using the results, my guess would be Thomas Harris' Hanibal, which would make sense considering he has already published the two prior books in the series.

    2) This terrifying tale drawn from Biblical prophecies spawned one of the most successful horror franchises of all time. Not sure if this was an actual book or a novelization of a movie, but, my guess is The Omen. I know that The Omen has had multiple films and would be considered a successful franchise. it also fits the Biblical prophecies hint.

    3) An American classic by one of the most influential novelists of postmodern literature, this Nebula and Hugo award-winning book is considered the author’s finest masterpiece. No idea on this one. My random guess is Ursula K Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness.
