    I know we don't really discuss comic books on this forum, but I am really bummed to hear that writer/artist Keith Giffen passed away yesterday. As far as comics go, he was easily in my top 5 favorite comic creators. Some people talk about Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman and Frank Miller, and, yes, their works were favorites of mine, but Giffen was a perennial favorite. I just bought the rest of his run of Justice League from the late 80s that I was missing and I plan on doing a full readthrough.
    Brian Keene wrote some nice things about him in his newsletter.

    Awesome deal. Thank you for pointing it out. Hopefully it will still be on sale when I have enough to get free shipping.

    Not sure how long it will last, but Amazon currently has New Hardcover copies of Ross Jeffery's "The Devil's Pocketbook" on sale at $7.53 from $35.00. This is a smoking deal! Ross is a fantastic horror author, and this book has gotten tons of buzz this year. Can't wait to finally give this a read, especially at that pricepoint!¬

    I didn’t spring for the signed limited, but did pick up a hardcover trade edition.

    I remember reading this when I was 13 or 14, after just having seen the original movie on cable.

    You're welcome! I ended up snagging a trade copy as well. I don't usually purchase novelizations, but since this movie is an all-time fav, I figured why not!

    Just pre-ordered my copy of "Becoming the Boogeyman" from Amazon. CD/Rich's latest deal finally knocked me off of the fence (free exclusive BECOMING THE BOOGEYMAN slipcase featuring a built-in genuine burlap mask, if ordered between September 25-29).

    Just got my copy today! Not sure when I will get around to reading it as I currently have a gigantic TBR stack going.

    Thanks Tim, you too!

    I just got to page 234 of Holly and took a break. I bought it at Costco this morning, and started it after work. Reading SK made me stop in here just to see if there were any updates on The Stand, but no...
