    Shadow Show: All-New Stories in Celebration of Ray Bradbury (Gauntlet/Borderlands)

    I think this looks very interesting and as I do worship Ray Bradbury......

    There is also a trade pb coming out too and it's much cheap, but this $75 edition is signed by everybody, but Bradbury.

    I am very surprised that the Lettered version is still available! This looks like it could be an amazing book to read. I am also a big fan of Bradbury. I don't have any King signed or Bradbury signed books, but if I did, I'd treat them like gold (well, better than that!).

    I think I have more signed limiteds by Bradbury than anyone else. Around 10 or 12. Of course, I mostly care about having what I consider the prime titles of his to have as limiteds: F451, Martian Chronicles, Something Wicked and Dandelion Wine. The rest I could live without.

    Of course, some of my favorite signed Bradbury books are the ones I got to have him sign for me in person maybe 12? 14?? years ago.

    I've got my order in for this one. Wish I could afford the lettered version, but a signed book by Gaiman, Joe Hill and with a story by, and tribute to, Ray Bradbury. Man, I'm all over that.

    Like Brad, I have quite a few Bradbury signed/limiteds and they are very precious. I'd heard that he wasn't going to be doing signatures any more, so this lettered edition will be a rarity.

    Read this a few months back and it was a very anthology, one of the best I've read in a while. A fitting tribute to Ray Bradbury.

    And the Joe Hill story was one of the best in the book.

    Me too.I signed up for e-mail from Gauntlet but have never gotten any updates.I even resigned up.The only way I know what they are up to is if I swing by their site.Did you guys just order the book or the slipcase too. I got both.I did not get the slip case with He Is Legend and still wish I had.

    I just ordered the book this time. I have the slipcase for He Is Legend and it is not a good fit. I have heard that this is unique to mine, as most fit well but I just went for the book this time.

    Unfortunate for me.The delux slipcase edition is not yet going to ship. Good things come to those who wait.I guess.

    Awhile ago there was a message on the Gauntlet site saying that they were waiting for one of the authors to sign the signature sheets, and they waited so long that they told the author to just send them back unsigned. Does anybody know which signature will be missing from the limited edition? Or is there a chance that I hallucinated that message?

    I answered my own question--saw the book on Overlook Connection and the description says that Dave Eggers didn't sign. That's pretty disappointing.
