    I had the option to choose the blue, but mustard is what I had in my hand and I think it looks great. Like you, the blue looked better in the initial photos, plus I just love blue.

    In the pre-order photos, I greatly preferred the blue to the mustard. But having both in hand, the mustard really looks great in person.

    When this book was announced, I gave serious thought to buying it, but ultimately passed because of the expense at the time was hard to justify, and I already have two other versions.

    To say I was surprised that she bought this for me as a present would be quite the understatement. I was almost speechless.

    This is the mustard edition of Stardust from Lyra's Books. I was given the option of choosing either the blue or mustard, but went with the mustard for a few reasons. I think it looks really cool. It's a beautiful production and one I'm proud to have and ecstatic that my wife tracked one down for me.
    Gift of the year right there! Congratulations!!

    Just picked up Sam Weller's Dark Black a collection of Short Stories. Weller is probably best known as Ray Bradbury's biographer.

Some of the cool factor about this book goes beyond the tangible stuff -- layout, design, cover art, rarity, etc. -- is that it is (as far as I'm aware) the very first limited appearance of Repairman Jack, and if you're like me and enjoy the series character, having and holding that bit of genre history of one of its foremost protagonists is pretty neat.
    Yes I love RJ. F Paul Wilson is a great guy.

    Too bad I have to wait until Christmas to actually hold it.

    So far after wearing the brace for about two days, I don't notice it doing anything while on, but I can definitely tell it was doing something when I don't wear it.
    You're covered (or uncovered) under HIPPA. You can't be asked about your absence of pants in the workplace. Probably would only apply while wearing the brace though
