      Love the artwork. Centipede books are always so unique in their artwork.

        Does anybody own the book club edition of TWO HANDED ENGINE by Henry Kuttner? Is it worth picking up? I don't think I'll ever track down a copy of the signed limited edition, or afford it if I did. The last copy I saw went for $10,000.

        And does anybody know the overlap of content between ENGINE and the Kuttner MASTERS OF THE WEIRD TALE volume?

          I did own it, but no longer do. I never did read it (nor compare the TOCs to other Kuttner volumes, so have no idea, unfortunately, how it compares to the MoTW volume). It seemed, though -- as I recall, but it's been a while -- about as well-constructed as any bookclub edition, which isn't saying much, as we all know, and that generous page-count didn't do the cheaply bound spine any favors. It's a decent shelf-filler in place of the original ($10K? Really? Yikes!), if found cheaply enough. I can't recall what I got for mine, but I suspect it was probably less than what it's demanding now. EDIT: Just checked ABE, and it looks like around $50 is the going rate...high for a bookclub edition, obviously, but better than $10K...

            Thanks, Ron. I keep waffling on picking up the BCE. I'll probably pass as I think I'll just be disappointed with the quality. As far as the $10K price, if I remember correctly this was on Camelot and has now sold. Now, granted, Camelot almost always skews to the higher end of the pricing scale, so in the wilds of eBay who knows what it would go for. Even at a fifth of that price, I'd be out of the running.

              Unless it's more the Centipede angle than the Kuttner one, did you pick up the three (thus far) large Kuttner volumes from Haffner Press? Now *those* were worth the $50 (each)!

                  So do I. They’ve slowed down in recent years, but hoping to still see more Fredric Brown and the new Robert Bloch collection they have scheduled.

                      Thanks for the heads up about Haffner. I completely forgot about them. I was eyeing their Frederic Brown books at one point but never got around to picking them up. Looks like the first volume of The Early Kuttner is sold out (and kinda pricey on ABE). I'm going to keep digging around though.

                        I did. It checks all kinds of boxes for me: John Carpenter connection? Check. Alan Dean Foster? Check. Usual Centipede Press quality? Check.

                        I have no idea when I'm going to get around to reading it, though...

                          Yep, and I in fact featured pics of it this morning on Twitter as today’s Showcase Book:
