    I had to track down this old post - but my Kickstarter Mouse Guard figures arrived. Found a LED lit display case at Michael's (it's made for Funko Pop!s) and glued some LEGO plates to the bottom. This fit all of the figures perfectly and I think it looks really cool.

    And related - there is a new Kickstarter from Crazy Bricks for 13 (!!) custom LEGO figurines. I really wanted them, but it seemed a bit silly (dare I say, ridiculous?) to spend over $200 on these things, but my wife said "Do it!" and who am I to argue with the wife. Plus after seeing this little guy, I'm super excited to have the rest of them in my collection.

    One of the very few positives from this pandemic, is that artists are doing a lot more commissions for people since all of the comic conventions have been canceled.

    Brian Miller - Oktopolis - is a fun artist who I originally discovered through a random Doctor Who print that my wife found on eBay. One weekend, I got a bug in my ear and decided to ask how much his commissions were, and they were VERY reasonable. So I ordered one. Those that know me should understand why I chose the subject matter I did.

    I was really surprised to see him use watercolors for the coloring - I just wasn't expecting that. Plus it was fun to watch (the replay since I was working) his Twitch stream where he inked and colored it.

    The other item I recently acquired is waiting to be framed, but I'll give you all a tease. I'm super excited to get this one back home and can't wait to show it off. Here are the original sketches for that "mystery" item:

    You say that, but we tried selling them. No one wanted them. In reality anyone who already has the book already has the case, and the case doesn't actually do you any good without the book. Unless your case is damaged.
    That's why I had to buy a new case for IT.

    IT was actually the first CD book I purchased - ordered it from Amazon from all places. They were the only place selling it when I found out about it. After quite a few "are you still interested in this item because we don't know when we'll get it" emails, my copy finally arrived. The slipcase has this giant barcode sticker on the back that wouldn't come off very well, so during a sale (maybe one of those sweet 44% off July 4th sales,) I got myself a new slipcase.

    Speaking of slipcases - I also bought a few plain black ones that were supposed to fit some CD books, but I have no idea which books those were.

    Congrats on the Kelley book. I sold my copy a while back, just knew I wasn't going to be a consistent subscriber of that line (though I did pick up the Wilhelm and the Leiber). Is it really going for that kind of money? Yikes. I wonder if some of those sellers are confusing it with the two-volume MASTERS OF THE WEIRD TALE set, which, yeah, is probably close to $1K these days. Kinda wish I had sprung for that one, but oh well, can't have 'em all.
    Thanks!

    The Leiber Masters of Science Fiction is WAY overpriced at $1000. I believe the last few auctions for it went for around $250-ish. The MotWT volume has gotten pricey. A few were floating around a while back, but I haven't seen much lately. One sold a month or so ago on Ebay but it was a Best Offer on a $1500 listing. I'm hoping to find one under $1000. We'll see. I shouldn't have passed on it when it was announced. Maybe I'll get lucky and Jerad will put out a Library of Weird Fiction volume of Leiber's work.

I'm not a huge science fiction fan, but like fantasy books, I like to dabble a little. I have the Richard Wilson and Kate Wilhelm volumes, but had missed out on the first two in the series. A signed edition of the Kelley volume came up for $99 and I jumped on it. Six months ago you could pick this up for a little cheaper, but I haven't seen anything recently. Figured this might be the last chance to get it a somewhat decent price.

    I still need to track down the Fritz Leiber volume, but everyone is asking insane prices right now. $1000 on Abebooks? Do they think Leiber returned from the grave and signed the limitation page? Yikes.

    Thanks! I’m being rather coy because I normally don’t post anything until it’s in hand and I can include pictures. It’s more fun that way. This time I was too excited to not say at least a little bit of something.
