    Rick holds a special place in my heart. Over the years I had written a little and toyed around with the idea of publishing. I reached out to Rick regarding both multiple times and he was very generous with his time and happy to speak about writing and publishing. He was always pleasant and came across as a genuinely nice person. I miss him and his stories. Very underrated in my opinion.

    May he rest in peace.

    Glad you were able to get this. Rick read a comment I posted about his writing online and reached out to thank me. He then sent me an inscribed copy of one of his books. Just a genuinely kind person and a fantastic storyteller.

    Yep. That is one I need to track down one day.

    Nice nod to Hautala — I agree, Rick was a very nice guy, and his work was never flashy, but always dependable and entertaining.

    Katherine Arden's Winternight Trilogy:

    Book One: The Bear and the Nightingale

    Book Two: The Girl in the Tower

    Book Three: The Winter of the Witch

    Each book also has color matched sprayed edges:

    The quality is probably on par with any trade edition, but I really like how they turned out. I also have signed trade editions from when I met Katherine Arden at Emerald City Comic Con back in 2019. (She also knocked over her water bottle while signing, my books weren't ruined, but I got one hell of a unique inscription!)

    I paid about $130 after shipping (from England - shipped on Friday, arrived on Tuesday!) and the eBay prices are already out of their minds. Not sure if any have sold for what people are asking for them, but damn!
    Those really are gorgeous!

    My copy of Wolfen arrived today. What a nice book. Glad the story got a nice special edition, it deserved it. The movie is not half bad either.

    When I lived in San Diego, there was a store that rented laserdiscs. Since LD wasn't region locked, they had a ton of discs from Japan so I got my first real introduction to Anime (and finally saw Pulp Fiction for the first time - for whatever reason, there was no domestic LD release of this movie at the time.) Quite a few discs you had to put a pretty good deposit down on due to their costs.

    Good times.

    When we lived in the Philippines, we had a significant collection of both VHS and Beta tapes. It's too bad Beta didn't get a good foothold in the industry, it is technically a better format.

    After I moved back stateside, I'm pretty sure we were the only people with a Betamax machine - I never met anyone who had one, and very few people were even aware of the format
