      I had to go to 5 Barnes & Noble Stores and Barnes & Noble. com to find a copy that didn't have a completely mangled dust cover. I looked at over 25 copies of this book and spent 3 1/2 hours travelling from store to store before I could find one that was acceptable (some ruffling on the top of the spine.) But this is ridiculous. I never had this problem with Borders.
      Very, very nice Mr Boone, well worth the trawling - maybe ??? Anyway, the cover artwork is brilliant

        Thanks, Mr. Woot! The whole series is illustated by Barker's paintings--which is why it takes so long for the next volume to come out. This one was turned in at 1800 pages and the published version is just under 600--seems like a lot didn't make it...

              I used to read Barker faithfully, till about a decade (nah, must be closer to two??) ago, when he would begin a new series, but somehow never continue it. Must be me though - I totally lost track of the Arabat series. How many books are there by now? Is this the second? Third? Will there be more?

              And, congratulations, Tom!! Enjoy!!

                This is the third book. Funny thing is, the only Barker I've read are his young adult tales: The Thief of Always and Abarat. I know I started The Great and Secret Show, but I can't say if I finished it or not.

                  Sent off for Easton Press' The Martian Chronicles signed by Ray Bradbury.

                  I think it's part of their "Masterpieces of Sci-Fi" collection that they are selling singly (usually a signed volume comes every seventh book in the set. It's not numbered.) It's the original collection of short stories, not like SP's definitive MC volume, but I couldn't pass it up.

                    Very nice Mr Boone, really like those ridged leather books that Easton does so well - nice score indeed

                            It's from Goldsboro books, it's just the standard version I believe, but they're numbered. Not quite sure why, think it's the number he signed for Goldsboro.

                            Just noticed they've found some stock of the signed Horns by Joe Hill again. Only 14.99 as well

                                The signed and dated trade edition of Full Dark, No Stars by King, Night in Lonsome October and The UK signed edition of The Travelling Vampire Show by Laymon as well as the limited edition of Mister B Gone by Clive Barker.
                                Can anyone give me a guess of how much these books are worth? I of course have a good idea, but I'd be interested to know what others think. The trade by King was actually $225, which I thought was kinda high whereas Just After Sunset was $200, both at Betts.
                                And now I'm not sure if I'll be able to afford the limited of Weaveworld by Barker since I'm also paying on the Books of Blood limited by Barker as well as the limted edition of Dawn to Dusk by Bradbury too.
