    A blast from the past, Underwood/Miller’s 1987, three volume set, The Selected Stories of Robert Bloch, The Final Reckonings, Bitter Ends and Last Rites. The set came with a slipcase. This one is number 44 of 500. I wasn’t really looking for this one, but glad I saw it.

    Yesterday, I got the latest Earthling Publications Halloween title One Who Was With Me by Conrad Williams so this is now 15 books in their Halloween series. I also received The Wench Is Dead by Fredric Brown. It's a Centipede Press unsigned hardcover. It includes TWID and 12 other stories. The last book I got yesterday is Dispersion by Greg Egan. Yesterday was receive a book in the mail day and nobody bothered to tell me.....

    You should, Jeff -- if for nothing else, I'd love to see the attire you'd wear to unbox this one.

    I just received my signed copy today as well, Grisby -- looks great. The black edge-stain is kind of a cool touch.

    Look for this book to appear in my Twitter feed sometime this week...

    I placed my order for the trade edition from Amazon on July 20. It isn't here yet.

    When I found out there was a signed edition available from Waterstones in the UK I ordered a copy on September 30. It arrived today.

    I should buy this book. I got the signed memoir by Scott Ian and when I saw Halford's book, I almost got it immediately.

    But, I mean, c'mon...

    Copies still remain: https://www.waterstones.com/book/con.../9781472279507.

    Go on, you know you want one. Don't let book-budget rules hold you back -- rules are for suckers.

    Yeah, that part is a bit frustrating. Every time that I called, their response was always "we will contact you in 48-72 hours" but when I kept pointing out it was long after 72 hours the reply was "well, did you check your email?" That logic doesn't work.

    I did go to a local store to trade in my old iPad Air 2 (Best Buy actually gave me the best pricing on trade in) and the guy was really nice and even gave me an extra $5 on my trade in. So as much frustration as I have, there are some good ones that work there.

    K loves the heck out of her new iPad (best part is I FINALLY got her to use LastPass for her passwords. That's been a project almost two years in the making.)

    She's made one drawing on Procreate so far - it's an homage to Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate Series.

    Not too bad for her first digital creation of this nature.

    We've also backed a digital artist's Patreon, so she's learning a lot of neat tips and trick about how to create digital art. Excited to see what she comes up with.

    (Reminds me of a run I did around my old neighborhood - I saw this license plate that said I Drift For Taylor Swift)

    Hahaha thanks Brian!

    Jason, you're getting out of control with your devil music and Twitter swearing. Should you go to your room and think about what you've done, young man.

    Be careful listening to all that Swift music. You'll end up in one of her songs.

    That's an awesome job that Katie did! I'm glad she finally received her iPad.

    For the most part, I'm a hard rock heavy metal guy (full disclosure - I'm currently obsessed with Taylor Swift's music at the moment . . .) and have found that the memoirs from these musicians are fascinating.

    My favorite one I think is probably Alex Skolnick (Testament, Savatage.) His book - Geek to Guitar Hero - was a great read and definitely gave me a new opinion of a heavy metal guitarist.

    I never listened to Priest all that much; but I know that Halford's story has got to be fascinating. I might have to pick that one up.

    Nice, Lincoln -- that was one I missed out on, unfortunately. I've seen some interior shots of it as well, and it just looks terrific.

    Drat, I didn't know there was a signed edition available. I ordered the unsigned version from Amazon because I thought that was the only option.

    Indeed, this should be an interesting book. I look forward to reading it.
