    I enjoyed the movie as a stand alone effort vaguely related to the book.

    Though I hear the book is vastly better than the Depp movie. I actually think I've seen the movie, but the fact that I can't remember much, if anything, about it probably says it all.

    That's a good one. I have the trade paperback edition. I finally had to get it after running across quite a few recommendations.
    This’ll be my first time reading it. I held off for years on the tpb I’d run across repeatedly at used bookstores, hoping someday I’d snag this beautiful Sub Press edition. Hopefully the wait will have been worth it.

    Nice Harlan Ellison collection. He was a friend of the family and we miss him and his wife Susan.

    I went through an Ellison phase a few years ago and was able to get a number of signed editions. Then I started getting priced out and after his passing, I kind of gave up looking for signed editions. This one was an awesome surprise. Hopefully RC doesn't see this post and say "oops, can I have that one back?"

    During one of the more recent CD auctions, they had a hardcover copy of Harlan Ellison's Essential Retrospective (35year version.) Price was a bargain (IMHO) and became an even better bargain when it arrived
    Very nice! I like surprises like that.

    I was lucky enough to snag an S/L of the 50-yr edition from Harlan's library. Jason comes across some gems that have been hidden away, and puts them up for sale here: https://www.harlanellisonbooks.com/shop/

    Still waiting for DUNE to arrive...should be here either tomorrow or Wednesday. My AE copy of Suntup's THE WOLFEN should not be too far behind, maybe late this week or early next.

    In the meantime, my Amazon order of three new books-about-books arrived today, and can't wait to start on them. They are THE LAST BOOKSELLER: A Life in the Rare Book Trade by Gary Goodman, RARE BOOK HUNTING: Essays and Escapades by Kurt Zimmerman, and AN ACCIDENTAL BOOKSELLER: A Personal Memoir of Foyles by Bill Samuel. Apparently subtitled titles are a requirement for books of this type.

    This has...not been my experience.

    That's not to say he does a bad job, but I think I've been spoiled by how well Goldsboro packs books.
