    Her style definitely took some getting used to in The Chalk Man. I wanted to love the book, but was disappointed by the end. It wasn't a bad book, by any means, but it managed to find an underwhelming answer to each plot thread.

    Good story you should give it a try. Of course it is still written in his style which obviously isn't your cup of tea.

    I appreciate it, Dan! I knew the risks when I signed up. And it is a beautiful book.

    I think they are very nice for the price paid also and I'll be collecting all of them.

I'm not normally a fan of this style of book (the Easton Press books are not attractive to me) but you know what, this thing is pretty nice looking. Completely different than SST's version, but still gorgeous in its own way. Great job CD! It's so shiny that it's difficult to get a good picture of (well, at least in my kitchen.) It's a really great looking book, especially for the price paid.

    I came to say the same thing! A lot of fun right there.

    My boxes came as well. I ordered two of them and got the hardcover of CD Magazine's Joe Hill Special, Dog Days O' Summer, and the screenplays for Viva Las Vegas and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Excellent additions to my library!

    I have that one. It's up on eBay pretty regularly for $100 to $150 if you still want to get it. Hell, a recent copy went for less than half that.

    I just got my copy of Ellison Under Glass, published by Charnel House. A beautiful book. I only went for the $200 version

    I’m not very familiar with her work, either, but the sheer variety of the stories in this collection sounded intriguing and was distinctly less SF than some of Sub Press’ other BEST OF collections of SF masters, so thought I’d give her a try. Picked it up earlier today, and though as usual there was no packing material it arrived miraculously in pristine condition.
    I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it.
