    The publisher was nice enough to find me a PC copy of this. Never bought from them before but it's a nice looking production.Book has a gnarly corner bump. I'm assuming that happened in transit.

    Received in a trade edition of The Shipbuilder of Bellfairie by M. Rickert from Undertow Press. It's a nice looking trade book and I was surprised that it was flat-signed by the author.

    Yesterday (during a small snowstorm) my wife and I decided to watch a throwback movie and kickback a little. Funny enough, it was The Gate we watched.

    Now I visit here, and that's the conversation. Too funny.

    As mentioned already, it's loosely related to the book, but does stand on it's own. If you've never read The Club Dumas, I recommend it.

    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/
