    I've never had any real bad problems with ups. Any damage is usually a result of poor packaging. And the Stand omnibus was pretty well packed by big company standards.

    That's a Cargo Cult book. The dimensions should match up to Bloodletting and Delirium Books standard dimensions.

    It's close in dimensions to a standard hard back (6" x 9"). For whatever reason I thought it would be a bit smaller (5" x 8"), considering it is about 100 pages in length and I have another of his around the same length that is in that smaller format.

    Innocents Lost. I also have Burial Ground but that's an oversized hard back.

    Innocents Lost was good. I'm about 80 or so pages into Burial Ground and it is good so far.

    I actually have not had any issues with the USPS (Lucky me, I know) or with UPS, whether from Amazon or elsewhere. Amazon seems to have improved their packaging lately, at least one the things I've gotten from them.

    The Twelve number 2. This is the Goldsboro S/N edition with the bronzed edges. Found out the other day that the books I sent get signed at Murder by the Book in Houston were "forgotten". They had them in the wrong location when Cronin was there. They told me since he lives in Houston they will be able to get them signed at some point.
