    I am Paul and like many others I suspect, I came to CD via Blockade Billy. Since then however I have discovered the wonder that is the Limited Edition! As well as subscribing to the CD magazine I have also started collecting many of the CD releases as they have become available. The couple of Grab Bags I have purchased have been brilliant ways of introducing new writers as well as artists. Many thanks.

    I've been a Stephen King junkie since Mrs. Heckle's 10th grade English class in 1980. I borrowed the classroom copy of The Shining and was hooked. 13 years later at the Miami Book Fair, I got Uncle Steve's autograph, but I had to ask him to sign my infant son's diaper changing pad because I didn't have one of his books with me (though I owned every one he'd written up to that point). My husband framed the changing pad for me, and it hangs right over my desk where I spend much of my time writing dark fiction for middle graders and young adults.
    As a side note, my son is long past his infant years now. He will graduate from high school in two weeks.

    Hi Rich DeMars here. I reconize some of the names here. Long time CD family member, avid book collector although I buy much less now due my wife job loss a while back, she's working but making much less. Thank god for lifetime subscriptions!. Nice to meet you Dan, I hope you have a long and happy career with CD.

    @ Calason,
    LOL. I also got Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's autographs on the changing pad. AND, I got my picture taken with S.K. and Dave, and those photos are in the frame too.

    That sounds like a very unique thing to have hanging on the wall, lol

    I must say that I am jealous of those with lifetime subscriptions, would be a wonderful thing to have. I hope that if something like that is offered again I have the money for it at the time. How much did those cost anyway? Whatever the price was it was definitely a great deal

    Hi. I'm Kit and I've been a Horror fan since I read Christine back when I was in Junior High. (Yeah, I'm old enough to remember when it wasn't "Middle School" yet.) I was hooked, and read as much King as I could, and when that ran out, I began ranging farther afield. It was the mid-Eighties, so there was a lot to choose from.

    Right now I'm eagerly awaiting Mira Grant's Deadline, which comes out at the end of the month.

    I was hoping to find copies of Edward Lee's Infernal Angels and House Infernal, but they're out-of-print here, and the mass-market publisher is having issues, so I guess I'll have to either hunt copies down or wait until the rights revert and the author gets a new publisher.

    I would suggest looking for these on Ebay and/or Amazon Marketplace as you can find decent deals on at least the Hardcover Cemetery Dance edition of House Infernal, though I still need their editions of City Infernal and Infernal Angel

    You can also try abebooks.com, I've found a few decent prices there.

    I'm Jason, or Bones to many, just turned 27 and live in Baltimore. I guess I got lucky by having a dad that was into the horror genre and wasn't very strict on allowing me to read or watch what I wanted, even to letting me borrow his pb's in elementary school. I think the first CD book I got was the numbered edition "Fear Nothing" by Koontz at Horrorfind back in '99 or 2000, followed by October Dreams. I have a fairly good size collection but the only lettered edition from CD I have is Koontz's "False Memory". The main authors I collect are Koontz, Lumley, and Ketchum with the occasional Mccammon and Laymon acquisition. Other than those I'm not picky on getting any copy of a book but if I really like it then I track down the best I can find or afford at the time.

    Non horror I like Raymond Feist and Robert Jordan, eagerly anticipating the final book!! If you can find them, Frank Frazetta's(with James Silke) Death Dealer is a 4 volume set that is amazing. Those would be a great limited edition that someone needs to get to making.

    Hello all. My name is Josh, and I found CD via SK's website promotion of Blockade Billy. I am a longtime reader of fiction from various authors. Favorites are SK (duh) and Thomas Harris. Although I wouldn't necessarily classify myself of a reader of any particular genre, I enjoy writing shorts of horror/suspense when I have time. Which isn't very often as I am an attorney, and I am married with a young child. I am looking forward to receiving my signed copy of Jack Ketchum's The Woman. I would love to have a SK signed book someday, but right now the finances just aren't there. I follow CD on Facebook, too. Thanks for the updates.

    Hi, my name is RJ and I am an alcoholic. No really; I am, ask my mother-in-law. . .
    I like to collect books. Not sure why, to be honest. They're elegant and add flair to my den, especially the CD editions. I got turned on to CD when Wolves of the Calla was offered and was sorely disappointed that I couldnt get in on the limited edition action. Since then, I've tried to be sure I get each King special edition; my first was From a Buick 8 - boy am I proud of that book! I took a break from collecting when my son was born, missed one or two, but got back into it with Full Dark, No Stars. Just ordered the signed edition of IT so once that arrives and the signed edition of The Book of Necon arrive, I'll be up to four signed King books. . . just WHEN is that coming out anyway?!

    As for genres I guess I like the horror/suspense and thank CD for introducing me to many new authors by offering reasonable priced limited editions - I just cant resist those marketing emails.

    I am also into boating although what I do probably cant be considered boating - I float and drink delicious adult beverages (see above) while reading Cemetery Dance magazine.

    funny, one of my co-workers just saw me ordering the 25th Aniv. edition of IT and asked me what I do with them. I had to be honest, "I sit them on my shelf and when I die, I can pass them onto my son who'll sell them on ebay for beer money"

    so then it would probably seem pretty poetic for my first post (i think) to be in this thread talking about how active posters will be rewarded...don't say that too soon...i have a tendency to talk incessantly and people even think i know what i'm talking about!!! (actually, i might have posted something else already come to think of it...)

    Hello. Phoenix cannot come to the phone right now, however, her spokeswoman-Mary-is prepared to make a statement: Hi, I'd like you all to meet Phoenix. You might not know her from such films as A Roaring Boring Alice and To Catch Her in the Pie. It has been said, and we do admit Phoenix does suffer from an addiction to threading words together in short, broken phrases; but can actually put them into proper sentences from time to time.
    Spelling/Punctuation? Generally optional...(ok, that's not true, she spells ok when she's taken her meds).
    Grammar...? Debatable? Or was it detachable? I'm not sure.
    Well, regardless...rambling but minimally entertaining, please give a round of applause (no, not CLAWS...applause) to this year's top notch Lotto Loser and full time taco whisperer, PHOENIX!!!!
    Likes...Long Walk-s and long words, long numbers...
    Born, but not raised, in Connecticut---She lives in the middle of nowhere, on the outskirts (no one uses that word anymore) of Omaha, in a place you've NEVER heard of...La Vista, Nebraska.
    She is married, and has one child...even better; they're not the same person!! How DID she get so lucky, folks?
    Phoenix tends to be labeled as the underdog, but thinks Courage was a way better cartoon...

    any questions?

    I wonder what the number is for people who found CD through the Blockade Billy release. I know I was one of them. Probably will be even more with the IT 25th Anniversary Edition release

    Sounds like a good idea for a thread under General Discussion!!! You can call it "When did CD drag you in to the Dark!!!"

    My name is Blu (yes, that's my real name), and I've been a reader as long as I can remember. My parents didn't shy away from letting me watch scary movies as a child, so my love of horror was born at an early age. I became a Stephen King fan with Pet Sematary and never looked back.

    I'm fortunate to make a living doing what I love to do - writing. I'm a public information specialist for a state agency - before that, I worked in advertising and newspapers. I do a lot of freelance writing of all kinds - interviews, book reviews, articles, radio ads, you name it. I've been lucky to have several short stories published over the last few years, and I maintain a blog - October Country - about horror and crime fiction. I'm glad to have this forum, which I think is going to be a great place for discussion!

    Hello everyone! My name is Janet. Long time reader of horror and sf, although I've diversified in recent years. (Those Erikson, Martin and Abercrombie books are just too good to ignore.) I think the first thing I ever bought from CD was a Glenn Chadbourne magazine cover t-shirt. The books came later. I grow roses and try to read and write every single day; part of the never ending quest for sanity, you know?
