    This is a sampler of the Passage that was in bookstores in the UK, may have been just Waterstones. I got it on eBay since I don't live in the UK. I'm hoping to get signed if Cronin does a signing for his next book where I live.

    I think Goldsboro Books, who published that version, are still selling some but they are at 250 pounds. I got mine from a seller on abebooks.com for less then that.

    Cold Granite by Stuart MacBride. I like the inscription on this one. "Monkeys and Cheese and Fish!"

    Andy McDermott's Chase/Wilde series of which I'm missing the third book. If you haven't read his books yet they are Cussleresque.

    Rivers of London and Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch. I wish I had gotten the first one signed but I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy it or not, now they are a bit pricey. I was lucky enough to snag a first printing while I was in London last year though. And I have the third one on order already.

    Tell All by Chuck Palahniuk. Haven't read this yet but I'll get to it eventually.

    Some nice editions there, Joe; some by authors I've never heard of--I like that! You've a nice collection of Palahniuk's there; any of them signed/1sts?

    I have Lullaby, Rant (Limited Edition), Diary (ARC) and Tell-All signed. I have a first edition of Fight Club that I hope to get signed at some point. I was planning on going to a signing a couple years ago but life intervened. Maybe I will be able to go when his next book is released. I also have Snuff and Pygmy firsts but they are not signed.

    I don't know how I feel about him stamping the text of lullaby, but if it's still legible, then I guess I'm ok with it. Damned was released a while ago. I guess you mean the one after that...

    My copy of lullaby is just signed, and yes the one after Damned. Was that any good? The story didn't really interest me so I've put off buying it.

    Like all his stuff, it's amusing to say the least. I enjoyed it; of course, I really liked Haunted and that was supposed to he his worst.

    I've enjoyed all his stuff as well. Pygmy was the first I read and somehow I was able to read Fight Club before seeing the movie. I enjoyed Haunted as well, definetly not his worst.

    This isn't a collectible book. It's a pocket dictionary that belonged to my grandfather. I think its pretty cool because my grandpa and dad put their names and childhood addresses in the back so of course I had to add mine, but its falling apart and I am not sure if it will last much longer without being rebound. It is also missing a few pages here and there. I added the blue inked birthdays just to have a point of reference.

    In case you were wondering the area I whited out is something I actually still use in my day to day life.
