     Thanks for the feedback, Ron & Mhatchett. I've been debating about picking up the Valancourt edition for a while now, but seeing this 2 volume hardcover set, which has ALL of the stories and the novels really appeals to the OCD side of my collecting mania. I'm still hemming and hawing because I really can't afford to spend that kind of money, and I'm a little uneasy about ordering through Haffner, because they just come off like a-holes with their "Don't bother us!" rant. I'm still thinking, but I would REALLY like to just take the plunge....I'd feel better if a store that I trusted, like Camelot, had copies in-stock, but they're pretty much out of commission, and I couldn't find copies anywhere but Haffner and e-bay.

      The thinking didn't last too long, lol. I just bit the bullet and ordered direct from Haffner. I'm wondering about the chapbook that is shown in Mhatchett's picture...It isn't mentioned as being included with the books, only with the sold-out slipcased edition. A few sellers had the chapbook included with their copies on e-bay, so I'm really hoping I get a copy with my order. The collector's OCD, you know.....

        Just got my copy! I cannot express how happy I am to finally have this off of my pending pre-orders list! Can't wait to get home from work to flip through it more closely.

          Congrats on snagging a copy…I suspect you’re going to really enjoy it and wonder why you ever hesitated.

          Shame to hear that about Camelot…I knew Kim had been ill a while back, but thought the situation with her (and the store’s operation) had improved. If that’s not the case, I’m sorry to hear it and hope Kim gets better soon.

            Kim is supposed to be doing better, according to the website updates, but the store has pretty much ground to a halt. They've listed maybe three new books since December, and they are bogged down in shipping new releases that customers pre-ordered, at a rate of, I think it was ten packages a day, max. And, really, considering what they've been through the past few months, definitely don't overdo it. Hopefully a full recovery is in the cards for Kim, even if the store has to take a backseat.

            As for JOHN THE BALLADEER, I am REALLY looking forward to digging in whenever my copy arrives. Now I just have to keep my impatience in check, since this guy CLEARLY does not like to be bothered by customers, lol. Again, thank you guys for your input on the book and the stories!

              I've ordered a couple of older books from Camelot this year and they shipped the next day.

                That's good to know. I'm kind of out of the market for older books at this point...If I don't already own it, I probably don't need it. I'm hoping they get up and running enough to start taking pre-orders again soon.

                    Got my shipping notice for Children of Dune today. I love the look of these books, but I'm feeling more and more certain that I'll wind up selling these at some point.

                      I felt such a relief when I saw the recent newsletter and was reminded that, since I told my two first volumes with rights, that third volume wouldn't be making its way to me. It was just another confirmation that I did the right thing by selling my first two...vintage epic SF is just so not my thing anymore, if it actually ever was. Glad the books are with someone who will appreciate them far more than I ever could.

                        Looks like Ghost Story is going to be up for sale in the next week or two. I am so excited for this one, along with Shadowland. I'm really hoping that Jerad will continue on and we'll get Floating Dragon. I'd love if someone did new editions of the Blue Rose books. I know that there's some love out there for Koko, but I hardly hear anyone talk about The Throat or Mystery, both I found to be fantastic reads.

                          I saw that notice and got a little excited. I have the Hill House S/L, which is a nice volume, but FOMO was hitting me hard and I’d thought, Well, I guess I can relax my no-variants rule for such a nice production of a vital horror classic…$295 isn’t horrible for an item of that importance. Then I doublecheck past Centipede emails to get a description of the production values…and I see it’s actually going to be “$495 or more.” Yikes. Not such my FOMO is going to be able to overcome that imposing price when the paid-for Hill House is looking very attractive on my shelf...

                            JEE-ZUS! I love GHOST STORY, and I was seriously contemplating this edition, but that is just insane, at least as far as my broke self is concerned. I'm still recovering from the JOHN THE BALLADEER set, that I still haven't received. Guess I'll be sitting this one out!

                              I've since found a slightly later email from Centipede that reads "$395 to $495", so that earlier $495-plus has been tempered a bit. Still likely not in the budget for me, though, not with the Hill House looking so dapper on the shelf.

                                I too have the Hill House S/L, and I'm debating on whether to get this or not. One thing in its favor is that Straub actually signed the sig sheets years ago, and he won't be signing any more. I'm leaning towards buying it...
