    Unfortunately there's probably no easy way to find out what was included in previous CDCC's. We don't really keep those product pages around forever. There may be forum threads for them, otherwise you'd have to search through back newsletters. As far as grab bags go that kinda of thing isn't listed any where. The point of the grab bags is that you don't know what's in them.

    CEMETERY DANCE COLLECTORS CLUB 5 FEATURING EXCLUSIVE SPECIAL OFFERS AND BONUS ITEMS!

    The Cemetery Dance Collectors Club Is BACK!
    Members Receive Exclusive Discounts, Advance Notice on New Books, and Other Perks Not Available to the General Public!
    Exclusive Bonus Items For Members Only Include: A SIMON CLARK Signed Limited Edition Printed Just For Members, A Brand New Exclusive CLIVE BARKER "Short Story" T-Shirt, Artwork for STEPHEN KING Fans, An Original Round Robin Book By Four Popular Authors, And Our First-Ever Cemetery Dance Coffee Mug, Book Light, and "Chiller" Drink Coaster!

    We're very pleased to announce the fifth annual Cemetery Dance Collectors Club, but don't wait to place your order because this special offer won't last long and the CDCC is easily one of our most popular deals of all time and it sells out faster every year! In fact, contractually there is a maximum number of copies we can produce of some of the Bonus Items, so there are FEWER memberships available this year than last year! If this offer sells out before you place your order, there is nothing we can do for you. Sorry!


    Members of the new Cemetery Dance Collectors Club will receive:
    1) Exclusive special offers and discounts sent straight to their inbox for the next 12 months -- the minimum total possible savings will easily be more than $3,000! We've sent 115 emails to the most recent Cemetery Dance Collectors Club so far including exclusive discounts on new books, exclusive sales of collectible books we couldn't offer the general public because we had so few copies, advance notice on new special offers and Limited Editions, and many other deals. (Members see A LOT of deals that are never offered to the general public)
    2) One of our most popular Bonus Items in the past has been the "short story" t-shirt, which features a very short story by a great writer printed on the actual shirt. This year's featured writer is one of the biggest names in horror of the last 40 years: CLIVE BARKER! His story "The Freaks" is amazingly powerful for a story that had to be short enough to fit on a t-shirt and we think this shirt will really get people talking at next year's horror conventions!
    3) Another extremely popular Bonus Item is the "Not For Sale" signed Limited Edition, which is printed only for members of the CDCC. This year we have a brand new Simon Clark signed Limited Edition that is already deep in production and we'll ONLY print enough copies for the members of the club.
    4) An original Round Robin book featuring Richard Chizmar, Ray Garton, Kealan Patrick Burke, and Brian James Freeman. The last time we did one of these Round Robin projects, it became one of our most sought-after Limited Editions in ages!
    5) A brand new STEPHEN KING ARTWORK POSTER by one of our favorite artists, but this poster is so cool, we can't tell you WHO the artist is because that might ruin the surprise!
    6) Our first-ever Cemetery Dance coffee mug, which will feature our logo with a spooky artistic twist
    7) Our first-ever Cemetery Dance Book Light -- read your favorite books any time of night without disturbing the whole house!
    8) Our first-ever Cemetery Dance "Chiller" Drink Coaster
    9) Advance notice of new Cemetery Dance Limited Editions before the general public and discounts of up to 35% off the retail price
    When a book sells out in days or even hours, every minute counts -- and you'll be notified of ALL of our new books before anyone else! This early notice can make a huge difference: just ask previous members of the CDCC who managed to snag their first STEPHEN KING SIGNED LIMITED EDITIONwhen we notified them about Doctor Sleep or It: The 25th Anniversary Special Limited Edition before the general public! (They also received the ONLY discounts we were allowed to offer on those titles! Imagine buying a brand new Stephen King Limited Edition at a discount!)
    10) Advance notice of books from other publishers before the general public and discounts of up to 35% off the retail price
    We make special arrangements with other publishers so we can offer the CDCC discounts that we can almost never offer the general public! In addition, whenever we only receive 25 or 50 copies of a signed Limited Edition from another publisher, those copies are offered first to the CDCC and if all the copies sell, those titles are never offered in the regular newsletter.
    11) advance notice of special offers such as Grab Bags and other heavily discounted deals
    Some specials are extremely limited and most are for a very limited time only, so members are notified of these new deals before the general public -- sometimes up to 48 hours earlier -- giving them a better shot at getting their order placed in time. (Sometimes we're even able to offer discounts on these deals, making something that's already a terrific value even better.)
    12) opportunities to purchase books and other collectibles never offered to the general public
    When we have so few copies of a collectible that it would quickly oversell and disappoint our collectors, we often email JUST the Collectors Club so those collectors have the opportunity to add something very cool to their collection that we can't offer the general public.
    Some examples of what we've offered in the past include Stephen King signed Limited Editions, books that were Out of Print on publication that we had a few extra copies of, and even sold incredible items from private collections that we sold on consignment.
    The members of the previous CDCC were emailed about more than THREE DOZEN BOOKS that were never offered to our regular mailing list!
    13) ONE shipping charge for ALL of your Bonus Items such as the T-Shirt, the signed Limited Edition Not For Sale book, the Stephen King poster, etc -- and that shipping fee is heavily DISCOUNTED!
    The shipping fee you pay today is based on the estimate weight of shipping all of your exclusive and free items in a single package, but these shipments will actually be sent throughout the year in several packages, so no matter where you live, today's shipping charge is far less than what it'll cost to ship all of these great items! We're covering the difference for you this year as our way of saying "thank you" for joining the CDCC.
    Your membership and your exclusive discounts will begin on October 1st, but here's the amazing thing about this deal: this one year membership only costs $119 plus shipping!
    The exclusive items listed above are easily worth more than the cost of the membership, but you'll also get 12 months of exclusive special offers and advance notice on new products and specials, making this a deal that can't be beat! Whether you're a general reader or a serious collector, you can't go wrong with a membership to the CDCC!

    We're only going to offer these memberships for a limited time and then they're gone for good, so place your order today or you might miss out!

    This special offer cannot be purchased with any coupons. The shipping charge on your CDCC membership order is the shipping fee for the Not For Sale book, the t-shirt, poster, and all of your other exclusive items like the coffee mug and drink coaster, but regular shipping charges apply to other orders that you place throughout the year. Please contact our office if you have any questions before placing your order because this special offer is non-refundable.

    The Cemetery Dance Collectors Club Is BACK!
    Members Receive Exclusive Discounts, Advance Notice on New Books, and Other Perks Not Available to the General Public!
    Exclusive Bonus Items For Members Only Include More New Bonus Items Than Ever Before!
    We Are Printing A Signed Limited Edition Hardcover Just For Members That Features Robert McCammon, Bentley Little, Brian Hodge, Joe R. Lansdale, Elizabeth Massie, Brian Keene, J.F. Gonzalez, Steve Rasnic Tem, Billie Sue Mosiman, Kathryn Ptacek, Thomas F. Monteleone, Gary Raisor, Yvonne Navarro, Robert Swartwood, G. Wayne Miller, and Kealan Patrick Burke!
    Other Bonus Items Include Our First-Ever Cemetery Dance Winter Hat, Drawstring Backpack, Lanyard, Car Magnet, Magnetic Bookmark, and Koozie!


    We're very pleased to announce the sixth annual Cemetery Dance Collectors Club, but don't wait to place your order because this special offer won't last long and the CDCC is easily one of our most popular deals of all time and it sells out faster each and every year!
    In fact, because the EXCLUSIVE SIGNED LIMITED EDITION HARDCOVER has secretly been in production for months, we took a guess at how many books we might need and the SIGNATURE SHEETS ARE ALREADY CIRCULATING AND NEARLY DONE! That means we can only sell as many CDCC memberships as we have signature sheets, so membership is STRICTLY LIMITED this year! If this offer sells out before you place your order, there is nothing we can do for you because we can produce more copies of the Limited Edition. Sorry!

    Members of the new Cemetery Dance Collectors Club will receive:

In addition, whenever we only receive 25 or 50 copies of a signed Limited Edition from another publisher, those copies are offered first to the CDCC and if all the copies sell, those titles are never offered in the regular newsletter. We offer A LOT of books each year that never show up in the regular newsletter because the CDCC has snagged all of the available copies.

    4) Advance notice of special offers such as Grab Bags and other heavily discounted deals
    Some specials are extremely limited and most are for a very limited time only, so members are notified of these new deals before the general public -- sometimes up to 48 hours earlier -- giving them a better shot at getting their order placed in time.

    Some examples of what we've offered in the past include Stephen King signed Limited Editions, books that were Out of Print on publication that we had a few extra copies of, and even sold incredible items from private collections that we sold on consignment. This past year, one of the truly incredible items was a poster SIGNED BY STEPHEN KING back in the 1990s that had been forgotten in a booksellers' storage closet!

    6) Exclusive Bonus Items Produced ONLY For Members:
    * One of our most popular Bonus Items is the "Not For Sale" signed Limited Edition, which is printed only for members of the CDCC, and this year we have something truly amazing: Better Weird: A Tribute to David B. Silva edited by Richard Chizmar, Brian James Freeman, and Paul F. Olson! The authors involved in this project include Robert McCammon, Bentley Little, Kealan Patrick Burke, Brian Hodge, Joe R. Lansdale, Elizabeth Massie, Brian Keene, J.F. Gonzalez, Steve Rasnic Tem, Billie Sue Mosiman, Kathryn Ptacek, Thomas F. Monteleone, Gary Raisor, Yvonne Navarro, Robert Swartwood, and G. Wayne Miller! This book has secretly been in production for months, so we took a guess at how many books we might need and the SIGNATURE SHEETS ARE ALREADY CIRCULATING AND NEARLY DONE! Not everyone was available to sign, but many of the authors and all of the editors have signed, and we will be sending this book to the printer before the end of the year!

    * Our first-ever Cemetery Dance Winter Hat: these winter beanie hats are made from high quality material and are sure to start some great conversations such as "what's a Cemetery Dance?" and "where did you get that awesome winter hat?"
    * Our first-ever Cemetery Dance Drawstring Backpack: these backpacks would be the perfect way to haul around some of your favorite books to the library, to work, or to the gym! They feature a convenient large front zippered pocket and even a headphone port if you want to stash your phone inside and listen to music through headphones while walking somewhere.
    * Our first-ever Cemetery Dance Lanyard: these knitted cotton lanyards are the perfect way to carry your keys and we've ever heard from a few people who use them as bookmarks instead!
    * Our first-ever Cemetery Dance Car Magnet: this round car magnet will be approximately 4 inches in diameter and it's a great, subtle way to let everyone know you love Limited Edition books!
    * Our first-ever Cemetery Magnetic Bookmark: these custom printed magnetic bookmarks make it easy for you to remember where you left off when reading your favorite books!
    * Our first-ever Cemetery Drink Koozie: these fun Cemetery Dance Publications beverage can koozies will keep your beer or soda chilled!

    7) ONE shipping charge for ALL of your Bonus Items -- and that shipping fee is heavily DISCOUNTED!
    The shipping fee you pay today is based on the estimate weight of shipping ALL of your exclusive and free items in a single package, so no matter where you live, today's shipping charge is far less than what it'll cost to ship all of these great items!

    Here's CDCC 4:

    The Cemetery Dance Collectors Club Is BACK!
    Members Receive A FREE Signed Limited Edition, A Brand New Exclusive "Short Story" T-Shirt, An Exclusive Signed Limited Edition Chapbook By Richard Chizmar, An Exclusive Halloween Poster By Alan M. Clark, A Stephen King Art Mouse Pad, A Keychain, Exclusive Discounts & Advance Notice on New Books, and Other Perks Not Available to the General Public!
    PLUS: Members will receive the only Signed Limited Edition of A Good Story and Good Words: The Many Worlds of Stephen King, a groundbreaking new look into the works of Stephen King that would have retailed for $65 if it was available to the general public!
    Today we're very pleased to announce the fourth annual Cemetery Dance Collectors Club, but don't wait to place your order because this special offer won't last long and the CDCC is easily one of our most popular deals of all time! Please read this information closely and place your order ASAP so you don't miss out!
    Members of the new Cemetery Dance Collectors Club will receive:
    1) exclusive special offers and discounts sent straight to their inbox for the next 12 months -- the minimum total possible savings will easily be more than $2,000!
    We've sent 125 emails to the most recent Cemetery Dance Collectors Club including exclusive discounts on new books, exclusive sales of collectible books we couldn't offer the general public because we had so few copies, advance notice on new special offers and Limited Editions, and many other deals.
    2) an exclusive SIGNED LIMITED EDITION HARDCOVER called A Good Story and Good Words: The Many Worlds of Stephen King!
    This 750 page manuscript dives deep into the works of Stephen King and will be an incredible addition to any collection. There will be a trade edition down the road, but you get the World's First Edition, First Printing and the only Signed Limited Edition that will ever be printed. The manuscript has already been copyedited and is being designed right now, so this will definitely be one of our 2014 titles.
    3) a brand new Signed Limited Edition hardcover that will be sold to the general public for a retail price of $30 to $40 -- but members of the CDCC will get it for FREE!
    This will be a signed Limited Edition book by one of our favorite authors and while the general public will pay between $30 and $40 for a copy, your FREE order is already secured for you! This special collectible edition will be signed by the author and the artist, making it a terrific value. The author's last few signed Limited Editions have sold out within a week of being announced, but you won't have to worry about missing out!
    4) advance notice of new Cemetery Dance Limited Editions before the general public and discounts of up to 35% off the retail price
    When a book sells out in days or even hours, every minute counts -- and you'll be notified of ALL of our new books before anyone else!

    8) an exclusive "short story" t-shirt that will ONLY be produced for members of the club
    We can't go into specifics just yet, but this shirt will be like the very popular "Brian Keene goes to the Beach" t-shirt we offered a few years ago to rave reviews, and it will ONLY be offered to members of the Collectors Club. The author of the story for this t-shirt is Top Secret, but we think fans of Cemetery Dance will be very pleased.
    9) an exclusive Alan M Clark Halloween 2013 poster that will be produced for members of the club
    This artwork is one of our favorite Top Secret paintings we've ever seen by Alan M. Clark and the poster is ready to be printed as soon as we have the final membership count.
    10) an exclusive signed Limited Edition chapbook of an original story by Richard Chizmar that will NOT be sold to the general public
    This is a brand new short story by Cemetery Dance founder and publisher Richard Chizmar and the chapbook won't be sold to retailers or in the regular newsletter.
    11) a brand new Glenn Chadbourne mouse pad featuring a never-before-seen painting inspired by the works of Stephen King
    This is something totally different for us and we can't wait to see how it turns out. This mouse pad will feature an original color piece of artwork by Glenn Chadbourne that we think will blow Stephen King fans away. You can use this mouse pad next to your computer OR you can mount it on the wall as art, your choice!
    12) the first-ever Cemetery Dance collectible keychain
    We've played around with prototypes for keychains before, but this is the year we make them a reality and only for the members of the CDCC.
    13) ONE shipping charge for ALL of your exclusive or free items -- and that shipping fee is heavily DISCOUNTED!
    The shipping fee you pay today is based on the estimate weight of shipping all of your exclusive and free items in a single package, but these shipments will actually be sent throughout the year in several packages, so no matter where you live, today's shipping charge is far less than what it'll cost to ship all of these great items!

    So seeing that a Good Story and Good Words was supposed to be out in 2014 - did that ever come out? And what was the second CDCC 4 book alluded to in the announcement? I'll admit I haven't been good about keeping up with all the "stuff" I was supposed to get, focusing on my discounts

    A Good Story and Good Words will be out in 2016. We received about 200 pages worth of updates from the author last month, and then it'll need at least two more full proofreads.

    The other signed Limited Edition will also be out in 2016. The author turned in the final story for it this month and design will begin in early 2016.

    Thanks, Brian. I have a hard enough time keeping up with what I have on order that I sometimes forget about all the clubs and wanted to make sure I hadn't missed something that should have been sent.

    It's great to be able to look back at previous.

    One thing.... my American friends on here are lucky in a way, as our Canadian dollar is declining like crazy recently. I get an exchange rate on my VISA at 1.42 right now! OUCH!!!!!!

    Our Euro has the same problem. For years buying US limiteds saved us, Europeans, quite a bit of money.
    At the moment we break about even.
    Soon the dollar will be the stronger currency. Bad news for buying, great news for selling.

    Just a heads up, the last big grab bag is starting to ship. These are going to take some time to get out the door, so don't be surprised if you don't get a shipping notice right away.

    2 summers ago the CDN dollar was actually worth about $1.10 US - I live on the border, so jumping across for gas, and whatever else was a bonus. Now......not worth it. Although...I did jump on the last CD offer I got in my email (at a really crappy exchange rate - bank hits you with an extra 4% or so on top of the regular rate).

    I doubt I have all the Grab bag info saved but I will try to post what I have. The original posts give the sales pitch but do not name the books for obvious reasons. When known I will add the books I received, and for those not yet known I will edit the post to include book names when I have them. As stated previously the books I receive may not be what others received.

    Final Grab Bag of 2015

    With this amazing deal you'll save at least 75% off the retail price and we'll be using almost ANYTHING and EVERYTHING from our warehouse, so your items could fall into any of the following categories:

    * Signed and Slipcased Limited Editions we've published with retail prices of $75 to $150

    * Items from the slightly digned shelf, many of which are Out Of Print, and are almost like new but have a few scuffs or dings

    * Back issues of Cemetery Dance magazine and the Grave Tales comic and maybe even some magazines from other publishers!

    * Chapbooks from Cemetery Dance and other publishers including several signed Limited Editions!

    * Review copies, both our own and some that other publishers have sent our way

    * Plus some other special surprises might be thrown into the mix and we'll be using almost anything that we can find on our shelves!

    First Forthcoming Grab Bag of 2014

    First Forthcoming Grab Bag of 2014

    Our First Forthcoming Grab Bag of 2014
    Get FOUR Unannounced Books For One Very Low Price!
    You Haven't Ordered Any of These Books Yet
    So You Can't Lose With This Special Offer!
    Featuring Something VERY SPECIAL For Stephen King Fans!

    Our famous Cemetery Dance Forthcoming Grab Bags are easily our most popular special offer because you receive FOUR Cemetery Dance hardcover books that you cannot have ordered yet because they're unannounced, but we can't sell very many of these sets because the books we've selected are TOO GOOD to let go at this low of a price!
    For that reason, we're selling these new Grab Bags for a VERY limited time only! This Grab Bag includes four UNANNOUNCED forthcoming books with a HUGE discount built into the deal, so even if you've bought everything we've ever published, you cannot go wrong!
    What's Included In This Grab Bag!
    * The SIGNED LIMITED EDITION of a brand new special edition book about Stephen King's work written by those who know it the best: his collaborators and the experts who have written about his work professionally for years now. Some of the contributors include Clive Barker, Frank Darabont, Mick Garris, Stewart O'Nan, Stephen Spignesi, Tony Magistrale, Michael R. Collings, Robin Furth, Rocky Wood, and others who know Stephen King's writing the best!
    * The SIGNED LIMITED EDITION of a novel by one of our favorite up-and-coming authors. He's a brand new addition to the Cemetery Dance family that we think our collectors will be seeing a lot of his work for years to come.
    * The trade hardcover edition of the last posthumous novel by one of our most favorite Cemetery Dance authors. This will be one of the most talked about novels of the year.
    * The trade hardcover edition of the new novel by another of our favorite new novelists whose previous Cemetery Dance book was a huge hit.
    As you can tell, there's a little something for everyone in the mix and we think our collectors will be very pleased with what they get. We're selling these sets for just $49 plus shipping and there's really no risk with this deal! Whether you have an established collection or you're just starting out, this is an offer you can't afford to miss!
    How A Forthcoming Grab Bag Works
    When you purchase this Grab Bag, you're automatically reserving the specific editions of the unnamed books above. You don't know what the books are, but that's part of the fun — and also how we can offer such a large discount on such incredible books!
    What this means is, even if the edition listed above sells out in hours or days, you're already guaranteed a copy. You could be on a vacation or away from your computer and it won't matter. The book is already yours — and at a HUGE discount!
    When it's time for us to officially announce each book to the general public, we'll email the Grab Bag customers FIRST to let you know that the book is part of the Grab Bag and remind you which edition you're automatically getting. At that time, we'll include a link to the product page so you can read all about the book before the general public and order ANY OTHER EDITIONS you want!
    Still on the fence? Here are just a few comments we've collected from our extremely happy customers who have purchased other Grab Bags we've offered:
    • "This is so exciting and I just wanted to thank you for this awesome opportunity! I don't remember how many years I have been a Cemetery Dance customer, but I will be a customer for life!!"
    • "You've got be kidding me... You are insane! This was one awesome grab bag... The grab bag that kept on giving! Thanks again!"
    • "I was absolutely floored when I saw the books that I received!! Some of the collectibles in this collection are worth SO MUCH MORE than I ever thought I'd be able to acquire — one title, in particular, I never dreamed I'd own! I've never been disappointed by a grab bag collection, but this unique twist on it was especially exciting since I had absolutely no idea which books might be included."
    • "Thanks very much to Cemetery Dance for putting these together. I think the grab bags that you guys do are one of the best deals going and a great way to add to a collection. I look forward to the next round!"
    • "In a word, amazing... That's the kind of 'customer thank you' that will keep me buying from you for years to come."

    Top Secret Stephen King Super Collectors Grab Bag

    TOP SECRET STEPHEN KING SUPER COLLECTORS GRAB BAG!
    "Top Secret" Stephen King Super Collectors Grab Bag!
    Save BIG and Receive Rare Collectible Items Including Sold Out Special Editions, Unbound Production Proofs, Rare Uncut Artwork Sheets, and Much More!
    Please Note: This item is NOT going to be listed in any regular newsletter and is not meant for the general public. We're only offering this to a small group of our Stephen King collectors due to the low availability and the rare nature of many of the items!


    While doing our mid-year inventory, we discovered we have several Stephen King SPECIAL EDITIONS left available to sell that were already marked as SOLD OUT and OUT OF PRINT.

    This inventory process included all in-stock and preorders -- everything we're publishing this year AND all of the great books we're getting from other publishers, so you know there's some really special items in there! But if we put these items back on the site, they will oversell in minutes and then we'll have to cancel orders and disappoint collectors who thought they got lucky, which we HATE doing.
    So instead we decided to put together something a little different for an invited group of our Stephen King collectors who love rare items and might want to have a little fun while saving money, too!

    This is a "Top Secret" Stephen King Super Collectors Grab Bag and we can promise that we won't be using any of these items like this again due to their high value and our low inventory!

    In addition to sending you two different sold out SPECIAL EDITIONS of our choice, we're also including some extremely rare Stephen King items from in our production closet and in the reserved section of our warehouse, making this an amazing collection for any level of Stephen King collector! Some of these items aren't published yet, so you'll receive multiple shipments between now and the end of the year, but we're only charging you for the first shipment -- the rest are on us!

    It's hard to put a retail value on many of these items because many have never been seen outside this office, but we can tell you the price of this Grab Bag is just $299 plus shipping, which is LESS THAN THE RETAIL PRICE of the two sold out books we're including! That means everything else is gravy, which makes this an incredible deal and one that won't last long even though we're only inviting a small group of collectors to purchase it!
    EACH COLLECTOR WHO ORDERS A GRAB BAG WILL RECEIVE:
    * A sold out forthcoming Stephen King SPECIAL EDITION -- this is a BOOK BY STEPHEN KING that will be published this year and is already SOLD OUT with an original retail value between $200 and $300
    * A different sold out forthcoming Stephen King SPECIAL EDITION -- this is a BOOK BY STEPHEN KING with an original retail value between $200 and $300
    * an extremely rare Stephen King Misprinted Artwork Uncut Sheet from a recent Stephen King Limited Edition. These are uncut artwork sheets that our printer accidentally printed at the wrong size. The sheets feature multiple prints of the same images as they would appear in the book, just on one GIANT sheet. We asked the printer to ship the incorrect sheets to us, but most were damaged in transit and we have so few good sheets that we can guarantee we'll never offer these again.
    * A Stephen King review copy from our "super low inventory" shelf -- these are the earliest bound versions of the books and once these are gone, they're gone for good!
    * a very special Stephen King Artwork Combo Pack featuring at least one full color signed Limited Edition art print and several full color DUST JACKETS from long OUT OF PRINT Stephen King books!
    * Stephen King inter-office unbound PROOF -- this is the most rare item of all, one of the earliest versions of any Stephen King book we publish. These are the designed pages that we print at our office to look over and send to proofreaders BEFORE any bound version is printed. These are coming out of our production closet where we have to make room for all of our new Stephen King books that are now in production. Some are very clean copies that were just flipped through and some might be proofread copies that came back with notes. These span our entire history of publishing Stephen King's books and they represent an amazing piece of production history and we only have enough for this Grab Bag!

    Sold Mid-July 2014

    For this Grab Bag I received the following items:
    Numbered Artist Edition of Carrie (Not a PC Copy)
    Numbered artist Edition of Faithful 10th Anniversary Edition (Not a PC Copy)
    ARC Copy of Full Dark:No Stars (CD Limited)
    An unbound Proof of The Darkmen (CD Limited)

    I received The Zombie Survival Guide (which my son quickly snatched up) and The Prince of Stories today from the Lettered Grab Bag. Both really nicely done.
