    Congrats, Jason on the puppy! She's gorgeous! I had a black lab named Midnight as a kid. One of the best dogs I've ever owned. She was the mascot of our little neighborhood gang and would follow us to the ends of the earth all summer long.

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

    I haven't decided yet if I'm going to commit to that five-book series or not. It sounds great -- weird western of a quest-type saga -- and I've always enjoyed Ronald Kelly's work (and it's exciting to see him back in the game full force with new novels), but I'm trying these days to be more selective and not fall prey to impulse buys...but this doesn't feel like an impulse, given my long history with Ron's work, stretching back decades, and if this doesn't fall under the selective banner, I don't know what would. I'll probably crack before the Oct. 1st deadline.

    It looks like a fun read. I’m counting my pennies to see if I can’t scrounge up enough for a copy. All their newly posted books look like solid reads. I’m in for CROSSROADS by Hightower as I’ve been collecting the Tempest line and heard some high praise for the book.
    I finally read this one a month or so ago, after hearing all the praise and finding the storyline very intriguing (parental/emotional horror), but it just didn't click with me. I ended up giving my copy away in a Twitter drawing. Don't judge by me, though...the novella has a lot of fans. Sometimes, for whatever reasons, books just don't click with a particular person. Quite frankly, I think my expectations were a bit too high, which likely played into my general disappointment. I will say, though, that I did read it though, all the way to the end (it was not a DNF), hoping I would find something to latch onto, and it just never happened...so at least I gave it a fair chance.

    Ender's Game was my first purchase from Centipede. I once had three copies of that edition at home. (My first two had some glue issues so the pages were kind of a mess.)

    A buddy of mine always curses me in a friendly manner whenever I just happen to mention to him Ender's Game.

    I really love this series has turned out and it looks great next to its matching friends:

    (The angle makes it appear as if Speaker is a tad shorter - Jerad even asked me about it. I double-checked and it's the same size as the others.)

This edition of Deadline at Dawn has scenes from the RKO Radio film Deadline at Dawn inside. While this book may have little value I was intrigued by the cover and frankly wondering why no one had bid on the book. I love it! Here is the book's cover. 30787.jpg

    I think that's pretty cool and also dig the cover. Maybe some people didn't realize that William Irish was a pseudonym that Cornell Woolrich used? Either way, congrats on the addition!

    We lost two of our pack in January of this year, one week apart. The first was only with us a year and we took her in from my wife’s grandparents who couldn’t take care of her any longer. The second was the heart and soul of the house and was a pretty hard hit. We still have two other dogs, a rabbit, and a year-old disabled cat. We’ve thought about a getting a puppy, but we’re just not ready yet. Maybe one day.
    It's hard losing a pet. For me they've always been more than just a pet - they're family.

    When I got divorced, my ex tossed all of our cats (I could only take mine - I had him prior to that relationship) outside. They were all declawed house cats. They stood no chance. Still infuriates me.

    Olive was my best friend - I still believe I was more devastated when she passed than I was for family members.

    One day you'll find the room again for another.

    Her name is Rocinante (or Roci for short.) She just turned seven weeks old yesterday and is proving to be a lot of fun and quite the handful. I forgot how puppies were.

    My brother sent us a text message last month about finally getting a new dog (his dog, Koda, passed away a few years ago) and I thought it would be fun to get a sibling from the same litter, if available. And there were two black females left, so my wife and I talked, and the next thing you knew, we were driving to Washington to pick her up.

    Ember, my brother's dog, is the little charcoal lab in the lower right hand corner.

    We tried to avoid the breeder situation, but after so many failed and frustrating attempts at a rescue, we gave up.

    After my Olive passed away in March of last year, it took us awhile before we wanted another dog. Roci is the perfect fit - even if the two cats disagree.
