Plus I had the signed and numbered UK 1st HC from Goldsboro. But now I see those interior illustrations, all in vivid blue, and I think it's absolutely a stunning look. I screwed up on that one...but congrats, Martin, for being wiser then me, looks great!
    it is a beautiful book. I had never seen an ARC, wasn't even sure they had produced any until this charity sale. Then I almost missed it, I am thrilled that I was able to snag it.

    Received an email about a week ago that joe Hill had provided additional items to Skelton Crew to sell for his charity. Saw the email while things were a bit hectic with work and promptly forgot about it. Saturday at 5 PM I received an email that the items were live. They only started with a few of the items I wanted so I figured I had missed out. Luckily I got the last one:

I wonder now, though, if it was just the wrong book at the wrong time, and if a re-read (especially in such a lovely edition) might just be a very good thing.
    To be honest The Night Country is low on my O'Nan list. I do like it, but at times reading it was a chore. I intend to re-read it when I have the limited. I must admit that I go into any O'Nan work with very high expectations. I am hoping to enjoy it more this time around. Knowing that Brian plans on publishing more of his work has me giddy though!

    Wow. I musta been drunk on my initial post lol. A few missing words there.

    Agreed. Definitely worth the bang for the buck.

    They are gorgeous copies. I've very pleased with what Brian is over there and on Patreon. Not a hard guy to get behind.

    Have to compliment Kate Freeman. The interior design on The Night Country is perfect for the story!
