    I jumped all over it.If I get doubles my christmas shopping is done..

    Passing on the DRP book club also.Not to hot on any book clubs right now after the Darkfuse crap.Well at least I will be getting a partial refund from them.
    If CD ever does another book club I would join that one both of those experiences were good.

    Teri hang in there.I too am going through some changes right now and I just might have a different job by the end of this year.You will figure it out.It might take time but you will.

    Or it will figure itself out, that happens sometimes. At least that's what I'm hoping for!

    The DRP book club looked intriguing. I can definitely go for book clubs when they're offered. Hoping Cemetery Dance will offer another one again sometime, too!

    And I'd also differentiate the situation. DRP is a book club with 12 books you're definitely going to get, whereas what happened with Darkfuse I thought was mostly just a change in output from 2 a month to one a month with a refund being issued.

    Darkfuse's schedule still shows 2 per month. The problem that I know of with Darkfuse is that Shane Staley will no longer be publishing under the Delirium imprint (I thought that ended months ago though) and will publish under the Darkfuse imprint (Which is what I thought he was already doing), which gets him away from thosee annoying lifetime subscriptions that kept him afloat at times. Wonder how long they will be around after pissing customers off with this move. That and based on a lot of what I've read, most of their novella series books are not that great, which can drive customers elsewhere too.

    Wouldn't call these "bargains" at all, but here's link to Camelot Books' latest newsletter. Lotsa lettered Bradbury stuff and the 2nd ATB limited edition I've seen for sale. Don't know if it's a Roman Numeraled of PC edition and it hasn't been posted on it's website as of this post (or maybe it's gone already), but his is one of my favorite book sites.

    It's been "unavailable" for quite a while now. I doubt they're ever going to get any more copies.

    Some of the kind first editions are overpriced. I can get them online or in flea markets much cheaper and in excellent condition...none of the ones on there are rare but some of them were $40-80 which is way too much for newer king firsts.

    I'm not sure this a "good" deal but it seems interesting (even with tape on the spine). A magazine dated 1989 with a story from Ronald Kelly.

    It does look a bit beat up. There are little dimples in the bottom right hand corner. I made an offer for that and a Brian Hopkins magazine but the seller declined.

    There is a great deal on a group of eBooks at HumbleBundle. You get to set the price and choose how much you want to pay and the money goes to charity and/or the authors in any combination you want. The average amount people pay is about $13 for the set, but you can pay less or more if you want. It's mostly SciFi/Fantasy and the authors include Neil Gaiman, John Scalzi, Paolo Bacigalupi, Kelly Link, and others. The eBooks are DRM free and in multiple formats that work on most eReaders and clients. I purchased a set and I figured some of you might be interested as well.
