    By the way, almost as impressive as that set of Onions books is all that empty shelf space in the background! How you manage to still have that all glorious emptiness just waiting to be filled is beyond me, but like that Onions set I wish I had it myself…

    I debated on this one so hard...but ultimately decided to stick with my lowly Dover tpb.
    Seeing your pics of that gorgeous set doesn't fill me with confidence that I made the right choice.

    Congrats on being wiser than me on this one, and adding that lovely set to your collection.

    Those are really cool! Congrats!

    Kind of reminds me of a newspaper section I got from either The News Tribune (Tacoma) or The Seattle Times that featured a huge piece on Terry Moore (artist/writer of at the time, Strangers in Paradise.) It was published when I first met him at this, what I thought was a comic convention in Seattle, but was actually a sport card/comic show, and the guest list mentioned Bernie Wrightson was there. Today's Jason is kicking himself for not going over there, but I'm pretty sure I was so laser focused on Terry Moore that I had no idea who else was there.

    This interesting item arrived with a bundle of ephemera that I purchased from Centipede Press, part of the John Pelcan collection, that Jerad is selling on for the family. A 1983 winter edition of The Bulletin of the Science Fiction Writers of America. The photos on the front and back cover are fantastic, Karl Edward Wagner (12-12-1945/10-14-1994), Charles L Grant (9-12-1942/9-15-2006), Robert Bloch (4-5-1917/9-23-1994), Stuart David Schiff, of Whispers Fame. On the back, Manly Wade Wellman (5-21-1903/4-5-1986), Rowena Morrill ( 9-14-1944/2-11-2021), Gene Wolfe ( 5-7-1931/4-14-2019), David Drake and Catherine(11-6-1907/4-9-2000) and L.Sprague de Camp ( 11-27-1907/11-6-200). Sad to see how many of them have passed on, but a really interesting issue, highlighting The 1983 World Fantasy Awards.

    I found an unusual S/L which I couldn't resist -- The Pact by Sharon Bolton. ~Cap

    These all showed up yesterday. The Wolfen art portfolio from Suntup, which is just beautiful. There are a few prints in there that I want to frame.

    The CD Night Shift art portfolio arrived.

    And there's my latest ebay find, Confessions of the Archivist, by Patrick Lestewka, aka Nick Cutter, real name Craig Davidson. Apparently he found this one so disturbing that he has never allowed it to be reprinted, so copies are scarce. I'm not a fan of gross-out horror, so I may not be into this. However, I've heard about it enough times that I decided to go for it when I saw one for sale.

    I am definitely slacking in my old age. I am not sure why but I always study the background in photos and videos. Jeff Terry recently posted a video of his interview with Kealan Patrick Burke and I obsessed on trying to figure out what his kids were scrolling through on the TV that you could barely see in the frame.

    Camping was good - still haven't unpacked the art. My wife is back from Texas on Saturday, so we'll probably unpack it then.

    Very cool. I've picked up just two items thus far, but am keeping an occasional eye out for more.

    Little teaser of the artwork I got framed recently. The unframed art is in this earlier a page or two ago - my wife's JEM art, and my latest Mouse Guard pieces.

    We took them to Michaels a couple of weeks ago - perfect timing since they were having a 70% off sale. Even better because whatever framing design I decided upon was over $800 before the discounts. EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLARS! For one frame. For both pieces, it came to a hair over $400 which seemed a lot more reasonable. I would have probably dropped dead to the floor if I was paying full price.

    Anyways - the teaser:

    Mouse Guard is on the left; JEM is on the right. The Mouse Guard one was HUGE. I'm not sure it's going to fit in the space I picked.

    I'm heading out camping this weekend (solo - trial run with all of the new camping gear we bought in lieu of a small trailer) so it'll be a few days before I'll unveil the finished pieces.
    Enjoy your camping. Looking forward to seeing the finished art. Side question: What is the Joe Hill book in the bubble bag?
