    The new lettered edition of John Dies at the End arrived day. I really can't stress how great these new lettered editions look. They look good in pictures, but are just awesome in person. Thanks, CD, for putting out these awesome books!

    Very nice looking book.

    Not quite my cup of tea though, hence I passed on it.

    I received my books from the Lettered Edition Grab Bag yesterday. As with all of the grab bags I've received from CD, I'm pretty darn happy.

    The first books is Dark Advent by Brian Hodge. I really went back and forth about getting the lettered edition when it was first announced and settled on the limited edition due to budget constraints. I kicked myself after seeing what the new lettered editions looked like, so I'm happy that I got lucky with this grab bag selection.

    The second book I received from the grab bag was Salome by Mick Garris. I really like the design of this book. This is a really sharp looking book that my subpar photography skills don't quite do it justice.

    I'm really digging the copy of Salome, that's one book I wish I'd snagged.

    Great haul with the lettered grab bag items. Salome is a good story as well.

    Thanks, everybody! I have a couple more books to post, but I'll probably wait until I receive The Straw Men so I can do it in one fell swoop.

    So true. I've been meaning to get more of his stuff. I'm kinda kicking myself because I didn't get in on an Ebay auction for a lettered edition of The Gray Zone a while back.

    So I've been lazy about posting pictures...again. I haven't gotten a ton of new additions lately, but I do have a couple.

    First up is The Vampire of Plainfield by Kristopher Rufty from Thunderstorm. I've yet to read the book yet, but the simple breakdown is notorious serial killer Ed Gein versus a vampire with normal folks caught in the middle. I also opted for the Remarque by cover artist David Acosta that I dig quite a bit.

    Next are two books in Thunderstorm's Elemental line of books: The Event by Michael McBride and The Narrator by Michael McBride and Norman Prentiss. The Elementals are currently being done in two different styles, a printed on boards version and the leather version pictured below. Around 20 copies of each book were done in the leather style. I like my books with a rather subdued look so I absolutely love these. I'm not a huge fan of smaller sized books, but these I really like.

    And last, but certainly not least is The Straw Men by Michael Marshall. Another beautiful lettered edition from CD. The introduction is great and the scans of the author's notes are endlessly fascinating (at least to me! )

    Very nice adds. I see we have another author who just scribbles instead of actually signing the books. Still I am very impressed with the end paper's of the lettered editions.

    Compared to Scott Smith, this signature is a novella of its own.
