    Sock Monkey's Collection

    Well, I figured it's about time to get in on the collection posting fun. Don't know how soon I'll get through everything, but I figured I'd start be posting my newest acquistions.

    This came in the mail yesterday:

    I picked it up off Ebay from Miskatonic. I actually lost the bid by a buck, but was given a Second Chance Offer since they had an additional one in stock. As an added bonus, they threw this in for free:

    It's a PC copy, but a free s/l chapbook is still pretty cool. It also gives me a chance to read more of Brian Knight's stuff since I'm not too familiar with his work.

    Great start! Love the look of the Little book (well, not little as in...well you know)

    I have only read one of this stories (ebook of Ursa Major), and it was fantastic!

    Very cool start and I agree that miskatonic is an awesome ebayer, I received one of those Brian Knight PC's along with a recent purchase. I had Vessels by Kealan Patrick Burke won from them on ebay and as they were packing the book up, they noticed it was a PC copy, they emailed me and said they would give me a complete refund and send the book at their expense, very cool of them!

    I am going to try to look up that seller. I don't buy much off eBay anymore, but it's always worth a look right?

    Here are a couple more Lettered Editions:

    I got Killing Ghost from the recent CD Mixed Grab Bag. I'm not familiar with Ransom's work, but I look forward to delving into it ASAP.

    This one I got because I'm a pretty big Tim Lebbon fan and found it on Ebay for a steal:

    A Stir of Echoes is one of my favorite books of all time. It was also my first Matheson book. I picked it up in paperback after seeing the movie. I was completely blown away. And thus began my love of horror. So when I started getting into collecting s/l editions, I stumbled across Gauntlet's website and had to get this book when I saw it. It is probably the fifth or sixth signed book I purchased, but my first lettered edition. If there is one book in my collection right now that I wouldn't part with, this is it.

    I picked up Killing Ghost a while ago (dinged sale maybe?), but still have not got to it yet. It keeps getting bumped.

    Beautiful book! I have never seen a Lettered Edition with 75 copies, how did they manage that?

    Thanks, Martin! If I remember correctly, the limitation page was printed incorrectly for A Stir of Echoes. Instead of reprinting they left it but it is actually only a 52 copy run. As far as Thunderstorm goes I've just recently been turned on to them. So far I've been very impressed. I'm not to familiar with all their authors. I only have books by Keene and Burke before getting the one today.
