    Mike, that bookstore looks like hours of fun! I miss the days when those Mom & Pop used bookstores like that one were plentiful...these days, especially in the areas like mine with high property values (and, thus, store rents), they're incredibly few and far between. All I have now within a 15-mile radius of me are a couple Half-Price Bookstores, and don't think I'm not grateful for at least having those. But I remember back in the '80s and '90s spending a solid Saturday bookstore-hopping, just going from one to another to another, all within a few miles of each. Man, those were the days, and I'm not sure I appreciated at the time just how special (and temporary) it was.

      Ron, It's true. We're down to just a few in Richmond. That is why I search them out when we re on trips. This place was classic, Books piled everywhere, the owner knew where everything was, interesting customer interactions, had a grand time.

        Just a heads up Weird House Press is having their Mystery Box Sale. I did it last year and it was a pretty good deal, so I took a chance again this year. For your consideration. https://www.weirdhousepress.com/prod...f-surprises-2/

It was a neat little store, checked all of my Bookstore boxes and I found several neat books, including The Knightly Martial Arts by James Wallhausen.

              Nice. Speaking of Tartarus, I received in the last few days my copy of their new one, LITERARY HAUNTINGS, which explores the real-life settings and buildings which inspired classic ghost tales, complete with photos. I think I’m going to really enjoy this one.

                  Wile E. Young gave me this sweet Poster. I popped into a $5.00 Goodwill frame today, it will get star treatment later on. One of the coolest things I brought home fro Scares That Cares.

                      Holy smokes, Mike, that's incredible...that's a set of books I've always regretted passing on, and that gorgeous poster just takes that regret to the next level! I'll never pull the trigger on the Thunderstorm S/L HCs at this point, but that beautiful stack of tpbs makes me rethink my prior reluctance and wonder if that's a great way to remedy that error in judgement and spend what would seem to be just a couple hundred bucks for the entire set.

                          Hail Mary from SubPress arrived today (just about a year after my pre-order.)  Or maybe it got here on Saturday?  Today was the latest Suntup Hannibal book from Camelot.  Too many books!

                            Super jealous! Project Hail Mary sold-out before I could snag a copy. Am hoping I can find a copy on the secondary market at some point.

                                Wow, looks great! Really love those end papers. Do wish that SubPress would include some interior art or a slipcase when their titles approach the $200 mark, but otherwise, this is a fantastic pick-up! Hope to find one for myself on the aftermarket at some point.
