    LOL. Okay. I didn't connect the dots from your original post. That is an amazing prize.

    Yes, I did read all the prior books in the series and I was the winner of The Turtle Boy contest when that novella was published by Necessary Evil Press. I have the Turtle Boy manuscript signed by Kealan Patrick Burke and an original Turtle Boy sketch signed by Kealan Patrick Burke. I also have Stage Whispers: The Collected Timmy Quinn from Thunderstorm Books.

The seller had them listed for $50 and recently slashed that to $25 so I finally knuckled under and got the two novels. I just made the purchase after looking at the two books for months. Since we've been shut down here I think I've read five books. I just finished Nemesis by Kealan Patrick Burke which for me was a hard book to read.

    Nemesis is part of a series. Had you read the prior stories?

    A Little Gold Book of Ghastly Stuff by Gaimon increased a ton. One of the few books I ever sold. I don't remember the specifics but I was shocked by the value in that little book.

    I bought my Fine/Fine/slipcased CD Gift Edition of IT from a member of TDT.org back in 2013. I don't recall how much I paid, but I remember it was a nice deal he gave me...$100 seems to stick in mind, but honestly not sure if that is correct. Might've been $150, but I know it wasn't anymore than that, and I do think it was closer to the former figure...as I recall, anyhow. I've had a number of book increase substantially in value since my time of purchase, but percentage-wise, this edition of IT has to be near the top.

    Yep! My copy did come with a slipcase. Although the slipcase did have a giant barcode sticker on it that couldn’t cleanly remove but I did get a replacement directly from CD.
