    Some of Mike's Collection

    Clearly, I like dodads. This is one of the small bookcases.

    Sweet! I passed up my chance to pick up the horror anthologies edited by Peter Straub--just one of my many regrets when it comes to books...

    Very nice collection. I especially like the McCammon hardcovers.

    Thanks! I was really happy to find the signed Swan Song. One of my favorites.

    I love gargoyles. I have a rose garden I plan to fill up with the little guys. So far I have one, similar to the one on your shelves.

    They do look solid. I hate when you go out and buy shelves, only to have them sagging in the middle as you add your books to them. Hard to find a good one now days.

    Thanks Tito, I enjoy books and all the accoutrement, bookcases, bookends, etc. Iíve been collecting for years. Iíll post a few more pictures later. I have two huge spinning bookcases that have a certain pride of place. Good books deserve a good home.

    Great collection, can't wait to see more!

    I see you have The Historian. I thought it was a great book. Honestly, it scared the hell out of me... That was because I was reading it during the summer at this little summer house, and one time when I went down to the basement there was this small pool of blood in the corner... A few weeks passed before I picked the book up again to finish it.

    A few more Collection Shots

    A few more. I'll get around to the rest over time. I'm actually weeding right now. A good mix I think. A nd I think I do detect a slight bowing on one shelf. Oh well, they're old. They're allowed to bow a little. MDH

    Like what I see here.
    Except for that red little booklet tucked away somewhere at the back.
    FJA deserves better!

    FM is still going strong (issue # 257 has just been published) and I'm having a blast with the Creepy, Eerie and Vampirella hc re-issues
