    Yea, seems they and Elvis had that same issue with the fans. I probably would have found it extremely annoying as well.

    Yes it did in regards to the photo!

    That's amazing that your wife got to see them live! Great additions and Walking With Ghosts is a gorgeous production. BJF's production of The Chill and Heart-Shaped Box look to be amazing as well.

    A fantastic batch of new additions, Martin — congrats and enjoy. Do let me know what you think of the new Dugoni…very curious about that one, as you know (and cool you snagged a signed copy). I also passed on that PS set, even though it’s typically a type of project I’d be all over…just too many non-writers and borderline horror (e.g. the Larson and Spielberg you show…I do get that both have a history in the macabre, but…)…but, man, everytime I see pics of it, I have to wonder if my hangup is causing me to make a huge mistake…it’s really a beautiful production.
    Thanks. I really enjoyed the Dugoni book. He is a very good writer and the story feels very real. I am actually reading a book he used as reference material for the Vietnam war portion of the story. It is a series of essays from people who served in Vietnam titled NAM. Very interesting read as well. I do think they did the book a disservice tying it to Sam Hell though. I do not look at the PS Set as highlighting writing or horror. I look at is as profiling fantasy fiction creators of all types and media. I am beyond pleased with and wish I had purchased the limited when it was first offered.

    A little background on this purchase. The Beatles were my wife's favorite band. She saw them live in 1965 (The ticket was $5.00) and our last date was to see the cover band The Fab Four. I am going to be replacing the bookcases in the front room with larger cases that will include display space. Last spring I was looking on Amazon for Beatles trinkets to display and I found a forthcoming book from Paul McCartney. The book was to contain all the lyrics he had written since 1956 with autobiographies interspersed. This was to be a two volume slipcased set for $79.00. No photos were shown, the publisher was someone I had never heard of and I would have to trust Amazon to ship it undamaged. Well the book was released on November 2nd. Amazon always charges you the lowest price that was offered while you had the book on order. This led to the actual price being $60.00. For the first time ever Amazon actually protected the book. o bubble wrap but the box was not oversized and there were air pillows to keep the book from moving. The books greatly exceeded my expectations. The slipcase is a real good quality. The books are actually bound well and the contains are amazing. This is another one I could literally take photos of every page.

    Someone on the forum here (Sorry but I can't remember who) posted this item and I thought it was cool. I checked my local Hallmark and they did not have it so I promptly forgot about it. Last month I saw the series in a shop in Cannon Beach but they did not have Pennywise. I looked on Amazon and it was $7.99 so I could not pass it up.

    More from Walking With Ghosts:
    I had mentioned that the book contained a surprise that I was not expecting. Mr. Freeman may have told us and I just forgot but I was surprised that the book contained a Remarque.]
