    Do it — that beautiful signed Vess print (above) will look perfect there!

    And I definitely get what you are saying, TD…but you’ll be glad to know that no bookcase space was lost with this print, as it hangs above a doorway (thank you, high ceilings!).

    Yesterday, two books I had been waiting for showed up.

    First is the signed edition of Frank Bello's autobiography. Frank is the bassist of one of my favorite bands - Anthrax. I'm not expecting a lot because most so many musician's autobiographies seem to be lacking and very "thin" in content. But it'll go well with my two signed Scott Ian books.

    The second book I feel kind of lucky to have even been able to order - had no idea it existed until a buddy of mine sent the link.

    The signed version of The Art of Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess' Stardust. I only flipped through a little bit, but I love this whole package. Signed by both Gaiman and Vess, and includes a beautiful signed print from Vess. I really wish I could go back in time to that day I found myself at the Comic Art Museum in San Francisco where they had all of the original artwork from Stardust.

    Seconded! That does look really good!

    I wish I had the space for a lot of those prints - or just even more artwork in general. But I need the walls for bookshelves.

    EDIT: Decided to post it this morning instead…pics here:

    Received a couple books from Brian A. Hopkins today. One is a collection of his fantasy short stories (Road's End) and the other is a collection (Voices in the Darkness) with his novella "La Belle Epoque,". I am looking forward to reading them both.

    Got a new Lansdale collection in today - not signed, but is numbered - 180 total copies.

    Sadly, no copyright information so it's hard to know what's new and what's reprinted (and from where.)

    It's a nice little collection.

    Thanks Brian!

    Our last dog, Olive, was also a black lab. I'm completely biased, but they are the best dogs.

    Thanks. I did not have that info. I was wondering how many and anticipated schedule.

    If it helps any, Paul said in the video that it’s planned to be a five books over three years, so at least that $500 investment is spread over 36 months.
