    I will likely just get her a copy elsewhere. I was a little put off by their shipping price.
    Even worse than their shipping price is the fact they charge a higher price for US customers on their books, rather than using the current conversion rate. I ordered my first book from them earlier this year, and got pretty annoyed when I found that out.

    Congrats. I thought about that one but trying to limit purchases.

    Thank you Martin! Weird.

    OK thank you! I wondered if I missed an update or notice. I refreshed the page a few times to make sure it wasn't a hang-up on my end. Really it was an impulse buy and I found the omission more curious than anything.

    Has anyone bought from CD recently? I was thinking about emptying the last bit in my account to buy Voracious by Wrath James White and when I got to shipping Media Mail was not an option. Only FedEx or UPS for almost more than the book costs. It's a paperback so I'm not overly concerned. I didn't care for the envelope that carried my Bruises on a Butterfly to me, but I wasn't going to lose sleep over it either. I just don't think it's worth spending $15 to ship a $19 book . . .

    I'm a huge Lansdale fan but will probably pass on this since the majority of these stories are reprints and I already have them in his other collections. It is fun to have them gathered all in one place.

    That's good to know. Maybe I'll track down the second book and give it a shot. I love McCammon's other work, so I feel like I'm somewhat missing out. I would also like to give Speaks another go, just because I don't think I gave it a fair shake the first time, but we'll see.
    Definitely give SPEAKS another day in court, but if it still isn't your cup of tea, you can stop and jump right into THE QUEEN OF BEDLAM and see if that's a better fit.
