    If You Could See Me Now by Peter Straub:

    Picked this one up off of Ebay. Kinda bummed that it arrived with a dinged corner. Why do people insist on using padded envelopes when shipping books? Overall, I'm happy that I finally got a copy for a decent price.

    I've been looking for these for a while. The second volume is readily available at a decent price, but the first volume is hard to find and rather expensive if you do. I jumped on the pair for $95 plus shipping.

    Newest Little Book arrived as well. I haven't read anything by Poppy Z. Brite, so I'm pretty excited about this one.

    Another one I've had for a while but never got around to posting pictures. As usual for Sub Press, the production values are very nice, including the slipcase which I think is pretty cool. The only thing that I was slightly disappointed with was that Ellison's signature is on a small slip of paper instead of a full signature sheet. Otherwise, the book is awesome.

    The newest Black Voltage title from Thunderstorm: Bigfoot Beach by Kristopher Rufty. I really like the "hairy" endpaper and the signature page is a lot of fun, too.

    I don't think I ever posted this one either. Chipping away at the Earthling Halloween books.

    The Unblemished by Conrad Williams:

    No, not yet. I'm eager to see what they have planned, though. Last year's book was amazing, probably in my top ten favorite horror books.

    Great additions! I am heading to the beach next week for a vacation and am debating between two books to take, December Park is one of them.

    Nice! Interesting cover on the Conrad Williams. I think I've only read one story of his that was in a SubPress magazine, but it was better than the rest in the issue if memory serves.

    My Top of the Volcano had the same small slip for the signature page. Makes me wonder if some sort of apparatus was used for the signings, but I'm just speculating. It's a beautiful book.

    Good call on the Wagner books!

    I originally read it in paperback as well. A few years back if I remember correctly. I've wanted this edition for a while. I'm looking forward to their edition of Julia.

    I haven't read anything by Williams yet so this will be my introduction. Definitely looking forward to it. Might wait until Halloween and do a book a week to get caught up on my Earthling Halloween books; I still haven't read Blood Red or Motherless Child. Hoping to track down a copy of The Haunted Forest Tour this year as well.

    I kicked myself a long time for not jumping on the Wagner books when they were first offered. I'm very happy to have them on my shelves now!

    A very good story teller. Love her shorter works.
