    Thanks. I like the idea of reading in style as well. It's much more fun that way.

    Let me know if you can't find it. I have a trade-paperback of it that I bought intending to read, before throwing caution to the wind and ordering the deluxe Folio edition so as to read it in style.

    On a side note I thought I had purchased a copy of True Grit but don't see it anywhere.

    Just received the new Paul Tremblay set from Thunderstorm Books, and in fact featured it today on Twitter:

    Also received IN THE SHADOWS OF MEN, the S/L HC from Robert Jackson Bennett, published by Subterranean Press. Got it at a sweet deal on one of their recent blowout/ding (no dings on this one) sale. I don't believe I've ever read Bennett, but the idea of a haunted, desolate motel with historical overtones sold me immediately upon its announcement...glad to finally have it.

    I ordered the Folio Society edition of TRUE GRIT a week or so ago, and it should be here in a few days, according to the tracking. Looking forward to it...it's an American classic, some say THE American Classic, and I've never read it. I decided it was time to remedy that, and this is a gorgeous edition in which to do it. Here's a great video featuring the Folio edition:

    I had the option to choose the blue, but mustard is what I had in my hand and I think it looks great. Like you, the blue looked better in the initial photos, plus I just love blue.

    In the pre-order photos, I greatly preferred the blue to the mustard. But having both in hand, the mustard really looks great in person.

    When this book was announced, I gave serious thought to buying it, but ultimately passed because of the expense at the time was hard to justify, and I already have two other versions.

    To say I was surprised that she bought this for me as a present would be quite the understatement. I was almost speechless.

    This is the mustard edition of Stardust from Lyra's Books. I was given the option of choosing either the blue or mustard, but went with the mustard for a few reasons. I think it looks really cool. It's a beautiful production and one I'm proud to have and ecstatic that my wife tracked one down for me.
    Gift of the year right there! Congratulations!!

    Just picked up Sam Weller's Dark Black a collection of Short Stories. Weller is probably best known as Ray Bradbury's biographer.

Some of the cool factor about this book goes beyond the tangible stuff -- layout, design, cover art, rarity, etc. -- is that it is (as far as I'm aware) the very first limited appearance of Repairman Jack, and if you're like me and enjoy the series character, having and holding that bit of genre history of one of its foremost protagonists is pretty neat.
    Yes I love RJ. F Paul Wilson is a great guy.

    Too bad I have to wait until Christmas to actually hold it.
