    Just received my copy of Mongrels from SST. Another amazing production by them. Love the cover and interior art for this one. No idea how they can offer books this good looking/well designed at this price-point but am glad that they do! Am very happy to have this on my shelf next to their edition of The Only Good Indians. Hope that they continue their recent trend of publishing limited editions for Stephen Graham Jones and publish a limited for My Heart Is A Chainsaw next. Will definitely be purchasing it if they do!

    Just got my shipping notice as well! Am very excited about this book. Hope SST keeps up the limited edition treatment for Stephen Graham Jones' books!

    Just received a shipping notice for SGJ's Mongrels - Paul is on fire! I hope he has help with shipping. Sometimes SST books get to NY faster than Thunderstorm books.

    Based on the Tremblay books they've published and will be publishing, it's probably a safe bet that we'll see more from Hendrix and SGJ.

    I really hope that you are correct and that SST does a limited edition for My Heart is a Chainsaw. It makes me happy to see Stephen Graham Jones' books finally getting the limited edition treatment that they deserve.

    Yep, I was super happy to see this announcement too as I was really hoping that someone would do a limited for this novel. Glad SST is doing it as they have been knocking it out of the park lately. Purchased a copy immediately!

    Let's bring this back to SST by speculating about some future releases: I would expect them to do limiteds of SGJ's My Heart is a Chainsaw, and Grady Hendrix' Final Girls Support Group. Would also expect a matching limited of King and Chizmar's Gwendy's Final Task. Would also like a limited of Koontz' Elsewhere and McCammon's King of Shadows to match the previous volumes. That's all off the top of my head; anything else would be a surprise, right?

    This has not been my experience, but that may be a product of the sorts of books I go after. Everything I've gotten from Gollancz, Orbit, Harper Voyager, and Tor UK has been at least equivalent to US publishers in terms of quality. But, my collecting experience doesn't go back as far so it may be that I'm only seeing the improved situation you mention.

    Irish and French, respectively. They also came to mind when I was trying to think of other UK publishers.

    Thinks for the tip! That’s definitely on my radar now. I’ve also been debating on that two volume slipcased Oliver Onions set…

    Their books always look like they have value. They are mostly tales I know nothing about.

    Tartarus has been producing lovely books for decades now. However, theirs is a very uniform look, so uninspired isn't an entirely unfair criticism. That said, PS has certainly dominated the landscape in terms of UK limited edition publishers for many years.
    And... You've rightly pointed out a glaring exception- Tartarus are elegantly wonderful. I wouldn't call them uninspiring at all- they immediately set a beautiful "look" and have stuck with it- it's what defines them and I love it, personally. Really, I was more referring to UK Trade edition publishers in general, with cheap paper and bindings, though they've gotten better. Pre all these small presses popping up, book collectors wanted American editions. PS was one of the first real prominent UK small press, and they're now finally moving out of - to my mind- as what I consider one of the "newer" presses . I'm Just getting old; 54 and have been collecting since 17, chasing down rare Sherlock Holmes pastiche's when I devoured the original 60 stories and needed more. That world was/is vast and eye-opening to a young book novice. Anyway, I like PS just fine. Glad they're there, doing their thing, and even though I love Pete and Co, and have a bunch of their books- they simply still aren't as good (quality) as most of the American small press. Thanks for pointing out Tartarus, though. It needed to be.
