    Here's my BJF library. I missed out on the ARC and HC of The Painted Darkness and the ARC of Dreamlike States (though I have S/L coming).

    That's a very good collection of Brian's books you have there Squire.

    I have still yet to read any of Brian's work but I certainly intend to start as soon as possible.

      An excellent choice, Squire!!!

      Both The Count of Monte Cristo and Les MisÚrables are probably amongst the most important and greatest pieces of French literature ever written and they are both in my top ten favourite books of all time. I absolutely guarantee that you will love them!!!

        I loved The Count of Monte Cristo but have neve read Les Miserables. May have to add that one to the ever growing TBR list.

          Really like the adds. I to want to read more of the classics that I have yet to read. Both of these I might have to check out.

            Nice additions and Brian James Freeman collection!

              January was a big month for packages. Here's some more of my additions:

              Weird Fiction REview #4 from Cemtipede Press. Completes my WFR collection:

              WFR.jpg

              And the new Ronald Kelly book, Restless Shadows from Thunderstorm:

              #5/80. Like the signature page, but I await one where Ron is smiling!

                Nice additions! I really like Restless Shadows! Thunderstorm always puts out great looking books.

                  Four Zombies:

                  And, of course, PS's Pet Semetary!

                  PS1.jpg

                  I didn't get a number one this time:

                  PS2.jpg

                  I like the edition very much but am disappointed that Pet Semetary is about 1/8th of an inch taller than Christine. That doesn't display the attention to detail that I expect from the best small presses, but it is more than acceptable.

                    Thunderstorm always has unique End Papers. Love their stuff!

                      Very nice additions! Love the endpapers on Restless Shadows, almost hypnotic.

                        Nice adds. Waiting for my copy of Restless Shadows. Those end papers are Hard on the eyes. Reminds me of Thunderstorms edition of The Novellas by KPB.

                          Great adds to your collection Squire!! It's rather strange about what has happened to your copy of Pet Sematary, I have just measured my copy of it against Christine and they are identical.

                            Maybe Pete put it on the rack before shipping it out to Squire. It is strange though, especially if it's a unique case. Does the book fit snuggly in the case, or is the slipcase itself just a little oversized? It would be even more stranger if the book and case were oversized, but uniquely so.

                              Snug as a bug! I honestly didn't check the books outside of their slipcases, but I'll do that first thing when I get home! It's not really a big deal. Just one of those things I look for. (One of my biggest faults is that I sometimes miss the big picture when looking at the details....I guess that's the "forest for the trees" thing.)

                                I measured my PS Kings and Pet Semetary is 1/8 inch taller than Christine! How does that happen?
