    I received my 20th Century Ghosts today and it really is a great edition. I think I like it better than REVIVAL. I'm looking forward to revisiting the collection. I remember reading it years back and unlike most, I found it to be "okay". I thought--and do still think--that the title story is phenomenal but I wasn't blown away by the rest of it. Mind you, I didn't think it was bad. Maybe it was just all the hype. So now, I'm looking forward to settling down with it again and seeing how I feel. Now, Heart Shaped Box blew my socks off...

    I agree with you that it is an exceptional, and special, collection that touches on many themes. Glad you received your copy.

    Got mine today (before Night Shift, it is somewhat bitterly noted- I paid for "Ghosts" 2 weeks ago,and it sounds like Brian was shipping these out on his own from his house. Not from a warehouse before Christmas) and it is really nice. I was seriously on the fence, having bought this book so may times already (PS original S/L, US first, SFBC- for the exclusive dust jacket-, PS reissue, US Remaindered copies- several, to hand out because I believed in it so much-, ebook.. I think that's all!), I just wasn't sure I needed another. It's saying a lot that I'm very glad to add this edition to the library. It's really well done. Love the two-color printing, and interior design, the abundant great art. The reason I keep buying new editions of this is because I really do consider it one of the best short story collections of the last couple decades. I think it's seminal, like Night Shift, Skeleton Crew, and By Bizarre Hands. That's really good company. Anyway- nice job, Brian- thanks for making a really good one! I'm in for the whole "Library".

    I think the package acceptance pending is when they receive a large number of packages. One label for all is scanned but the individual packages haven't been scanned yet. It may or may not receive a scan at that post office, but once it get scanned again you'll see action for sure. My tracking was very similar to the above but then I think they realized it was priority and it moved fast suddenly. I did have a first expected delivery of I think the 11th then they upped it to the 9th maybe, or the 8th. Days are running together bad.

    Thanks for the analysis.

    I do know that sometimes their tracking is wonky anyway. I've had things going from scanned in -then no update- to showing up at my door.
    It could be a missed scan as well. I have spent most of the last year working on enhancing a retail logistics system so shipment tracking and scan ins are embedded in my brain at the moment.

    Tracking History



    January 4, 2021, 6:35 pm
    Shipment Received, Package Acceptance Pending
    MECHANICSBURG, PA 17050
    Your shipment was received at 6:35 pm on January 4, 2021 in MECHANICSBURG, PA 17050. The acceptance of your package is pending.
    December 31, 2020, 3:48 am
    Shipping Label Created, USPS Awaiting Item
    MECHANICSBURG, PA 17050
    December 31, 2020
    Pre-Shipment Info Sent to USPS, USPS Awaiting Item


    Here is what I believe this indicates:
    So on December 31st the shipping label was created. It is possible that it was not delivered to the post office until the 4th or that it was dropped off and sat awaiting a scan in. January 4th the item was scanned in as received at the post office. The scan label is in the process of validation which will lead to either acceptance or rejection. Rejection would only occur if the deliver to address was not valid. Once accepted the status will change to In Transit and an estimated delivery date should be available.

    I have a package shipped from that same post office on December 5th that has still not been scanned in. I fully believe that it is sitting in a trailer waiting for them to catch up and scan it in.
