    Jealous of your copy of The Fog, it's one I definitely have in my list of books to get my hands on when I am able to, as well others from Herbert, like The Dark

I love the set, the white cloth borders are just beautiful.
    Actually, it isn't necessarily a reprint, just one novel sized book and one novella sized from Keene. The authors of the 3rd book from this years' set is well known, but the other 3 are a little less well known. I am surprised that this year's Maelstrom didn't sell out quicker than it did, given how big F. Paul Wilson is! He is so popular it took me a long time to be able to add him as a friend on Facebook because he was maxed out! Saw he was at 1 below max last week and jumped on the opportunity, lol! I am actually surprised it was a big name like F Paul. I guess Sara Pinborough is lesser known, but having F Paul's name associated with it as well more than makes up for her being less known, lol. May dive into that book after I finish my Goodreads win that I just got in the mail.

    Oh, and if you look at the copyright pages of the Maelstrom books they'll let you know which Maelstrom set they're from and which number book it is in the sets. Not something important, but I find it to be a nice touch for my organization purposes.

    Sara Pinborough in my opinion should be better known. Fantastic writer. I have read two of her novels and a bunch of short stories. There are so many great women authors writing now.

    The lettered edition of Joe Lansdale's Dead in the West arrived yesterday:


    The slipcase had a nice felt lining.







    I'm a big of fan Stephen Bissette, who also did artwork for Swamp Thing and some DC horror comics, and I have been looking forward to reading some Joe Lansdale for a while too.

    I agree. I have discovered some great female authors recently, and look forward to more! Discovered Kelli Owen and Mary SanGiovanni when Paul at Thunderstorm Books gave me copies of their small books that he published. I was just expecting to get the Ronald Kelly book I ordered, but he gave me a nice bonus Great way to make your customers very happy! Discovering female authors like Sandy DeLuca and Lisa Von Biela through my Kindle subscription with DarkFuse.

    I've heard of her, but never read anything of hers. Will be soon though as I plan to read the Maelstrom title soon!

    If collecting is an illness, I must be terminal

    Got another Lansdale book on Monday. Was hoping to get it before Christmas, but I guess that was farfetched. PS publishings Holiday Chapbook #6: Joe R. Lansdale's Christmas With the Dead, art courtesy of Glenn Chadbourne.

    I never even heard of this book until you posted it! Just managed to find a copy on Ebay and ordered it. I love PS, but everytime I try to make an overseas purchase, my bank red flags it, declines the charge, and freezes my account. It's a pain in the butt.

    Dang! Sounds like you need a new bank. That definitely sucks!

    Federal banks are just picky, I think.
