    Thanks. I really like the alternate cover but think they made the correct choice with the cover they went with.

    That’s fantastic, Martin. I really wanted to pull the trigger on that one but just couldn’t... However it’s nice to see those awesome editions and knowing that you’ll get to enjoy them! Those grab bags seem to be getting better and better and harder to pass on. Congrats!!

    Cemetery Dance recently offered a Stephen King Grab to the CDCC. The set was to include:
    1. One signed Stephen King Limited Edition (PC)
    2. A rare, previously undistributed review copy with alternate cover artwork for one of our acclaimed Stephen King projects -- we changed direction on the cover and never sent out the review copies with this original design!
    3. One of the earliest Cemetery Dance Publications books ever published!
    4. A Cemetery Dance magazine hardcover Limited Edition
    5. A Grave Tales comic hardcover Limited Edition
    Here is how I did.
    The early publication was:
    • Passion Play by Richard Matheson signed PC of 1,000

    The Hardbound Magazine was issue 52:

    I failed to photograph the signature sheet but it contains 12 signatures.

    The Hardcover Comic was Issue #6:

    My only duplicate in the bunch.

    So I documented elsewhere a couple of FedEx orders that were delivered late. Well they are now both here and although not a book I wanted to share. I have been a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs since 1987 and while the team has had ups and downs during that time a few years ago they drafted Patrick Mahomes and everything changed. This year he led his team to a Super Bowl victory. I believe he will lead them to more as his career continues. I decided to purchase a signed ball from his first Super Bowl victory.

    I’m dumbfounded that I didn’t know about this book. My teenage son is a huge Doctor Who fan and I’m always looking for ways to engage him in reading rather than playing video games. I’ve also watched a few season with him so I understand the premise of the show. Plus I’m a pretty big Joe Hill fan and I’ve enjoyed Neil Gaiman’s works very much so it checks all the boxes for me. I was lucky enough to pick up a numbered copy at eBay auction this week for a reasonable price so I’ve now also added it to my collection. Thank you for sharing as I would not have known about this otherwise.
    Glad you have found it now. It probably will net get me to search out more Doctor Who but it was a decent read.

    ETA: My copy actually says 11 Doctors 11 Stories.
    I will check it out. Thanks!

    So, I have to admit I have never seen an episode of Doctor Who. On top of that Neil Gaiman has been hot and miss for me. I considered this for the Joe Signature and Afterword when it was released but the price prevented me from purchasing it. Gauntlet recently offered PC copies at a discounted rate and I went for it.
    Am actually reading it now and am enjoying it.
