    Jack Ketchum
    Edward Lee
    Robert McCammon
    Richard Laymon
    Clive Barker

    Peter Straub
    Justin Cronin
    William Peter Blatty
    F. Paul Wilson
    Ray Garton
    Dan Simmons
    Tim Lebbon
    + Many Others

    Then please PM me and I will send you the list and/or his email, he is a great guy and needs the support right now

    Thank You for reading!!

    Many of us remember Grant very well as he used to be a member here and showcased his massive collection before he made the move to thedarktower.org.
    I am very sorry he is forced to sell his books and wish him well.

    I miss Grant, too. And he had such a fabulous collection; one of the best I'd ever seen, or heard of. I hope he's doing okay.

    I inquired about one of the books with Mr. Wootten, and it turns out someone had sniped it! I was beaten by 1 hour and 10 minutes I heard.

    The Hellbound Heart, Tommy, ring a bell? LOL

    Thanks for sharing the list!

    I am so sorry!, I had already bought eight books from him BEFORE I saw that wonderful list and I immediately inquired about that one, If I ever come across another one I will send word your way for sure!

    No worries at all, and congrats on picking it up! I mostly know Barker through short stories, which I love, but not nearly so familiar with his novels. Cabal was great, though, and looking forward to Damnation Game.

    TDG has been my favorite novel of his so far with The Sacrament, The Great and Secret Show and Coldheart Canyon close seconds, Hellbound Heart is a very short novella that can be read in one sitting so I don't consider it a novel, but it is really good, actually the only thing I've ever read by Barker that I didn't love was Mister B Gone, save that one for reading last, if you have to read it all

    Thanks for the clarification, not sure why I though it was a novel. I'd forgotten about Great and Secret Show, but I've been wanting to get to that one as well. It appears I also need to open up some slots for Coldheart Canyon and The Sacrament.

    I'm telling you, the day I get fired will be the greatest day of my life. No book will be safe.

    All who were around here in the beginning remember Mr. Woot fondly. I am sad to see such a spectacular collection being sold off. I wish I had the funds to snag a few of his goodies, but I don't. Please give him my best.

    I miss him too, and am saddened by his collection going to the four winds. I'm sure his was one of the top SK collections in the world. I really hope he's doing well, otherwise.

    Yes. Same here. I got the list and after figuring out what I wanted realized right now is not the time for some of these. Lots going on in my life right now. I do hope Mister Woot is alright.

    If any one is on the fence about buying something...get off that fence and do it!!

    I bought several from him directly a couple weeks ago, they arrived quickly, and safely.

    There are a few more of the King variety that ended up in a lay a way with my name on them too.

    Goodbye Delirium collection, hello more CD and King books.
