    I know it must look like that, but I have been paying off the top half on layaway for about 8 months. The sales purchases average out to $23 each - many on here would pay as much for a single book as I paid for the 18 books.

    While I was shopping the sale, I had McCammon's Stinger in my cart but by the time I got to the checkout, it was gone. Anyone here like to fess up?

    I also noticed that lots of the Lansdale books I'd been eyeing off were no longer for sale and I was sure that Jeffingoff had beaten me to them - I know he's been buying up on the Lansdales. But then I saw that he resisted, so I should apologise for the awful things I said about you Jeff.

    Hahahaha no offense taken! For sure I was looking through all the Lansdales and pumping the brakes. After padding my CD account with a healthy amount of funds, I had to kind of pretend I didn't see anything.

    That's how you know he had actually won the Lottery - I don't think any of us regular Joes can afford an unsigned Joe Hill book.

    I am sure the awful things you said about Jeffingoff still apply, just not for the original intent.

    True. It will be one of the only Joe Hills I have that hasn't been scrawled upon.

    Also had a pretty good haul last weekend with the Camelot sale:

    Two Rick Hautala collections (Bedbugs & Occasional Demons)
    Limbus II limited edition
    the Joe Ledger LE of short stories by Jonathan Maberry (can't remember the name right now)
    Darkfuse 4 (completes the set)
    Erotikos (not a big fan of erotic horror, but this had a short story by Brian Lumley & is signed by Lumley)
    Dark City LE (bought this for the Hodge novella; never been a fan of Gerard Houarner)
    volumes 13 - 17 of the illustrated Lovecraft series published by PS Publishing; completes the set)

    Both of those Hautala books have some great stories.

    Douglas Clegg has a short story collection on Kindle for .99 that is over 700 pages. It includes The Nightmare chronicles, Night Asylum and the Wild Things collections as well as a bonus novelette. Well worth the price.

    For you fellow Audible members most of the catalog is on sale. Sale runs through 12/13. Most of my wish list is 50% to 75% off. Have to refrain from spending too much money!
