    Drawing a blank but will think about it.

    I was going to throw an offer at you, give Mieville and urban fantasy one last try, but I see it starts at $125 and goes up from there, so I guess I'll just enjoy the pretty pictures. Speaking of which, here's the whole trilogy in Sub Press editions:

    The three you mention would’ve been my draws as well, and since I already have both Lansdales, the package would’ve been wasted on me, and affirms why I skip these offers, as tempting as they are.
    Have never read Miéville, assume he is too sci fi for me. Probably will not start with a novel that clocks in at over 700 pages. You are correct, it is beautiful with several color art tipped in. Here is a sample, there is more art including fold outs.

    And I probably will not buy another grab bag. They just have too much I am not interested in. It is a value for those interested.

    I had never purchased a Subterranean Press grab bag before. Two reasons why, at $150 they are a bit expensive for a crap shoot and they publish a lot of books that do not interest me. The recent offering caught me in a moment of weakness so here it is:
    So the offer was for $150 you get 12 books worth at least $500.
    Of the twelve books 3 were books I have come close to purchasing. The other 9 are books I would never purchase. Several of them are small enough that I will probably give them a shot to see what I have been missing. The retail value of the books I received was $548
    The 9 I did not have interest in:
    My Beautiful Life K.J. Parker Signed Limited $40
    Lost SouLs Kelley Armstrong Deluxe $28
    The Gobblin’ Society James P. Blaylock Signed Limited $40
    Penric’s Fox Lois McMaster Bujold Signed Limited $45
    The Prisoner of Limnos Lois McMaster Bujold Signed Limited $45
    The Orphans of Raspay Lois McMaster Bujold Deluxe $25
    The Postutopian Adventures of Darger and Surplus Michael Swanwick Signed Limited $40
    King of the Dogs, Queen of the Cats James Patrick Kelly Signed Limited $40
    The Scar China Miéville Signed Limited $125

    The 3 I have been tempted by:
    Subterranean Tales of Dark Fantasy Ed. William Schaefer Deluxe $40
    Jane Goes North Joe R. Lansdale Signed Limited $40
    The Sky Done Ripped Joe R. Lansdale Signed Trade $40

    Martin, will be very curious to hear your thoughts on Unnerving Magazine. I've been really tempted to throw a subscription at that one. It looks great, very slickly done with interesting content...and, let's face it, an issue of Cemetery Dance magazine every two/three/four years isn't exactly scratching that small-press mag itch.
    Based on the contributors I expect I will like it. I will post my thoughts her when I get to it.

    A couple of magazine additions.
    First up is Unnerving Magazine. Bev Vincent posted this one on Twitter and it intrigued. Actually reminds me of early Cemetery Dance. Have not read it yet but am looking forward to it.
