    I don't like to point these things out, but they had a typo in the image for the book. My guess is that these things are related.

    Well that's a very reasonable reason. Glad to hear that that's maybe all there is. Because if there's a fumble at the snap then drama ensues and who likes drama?

    In other news, that Little Green Book of Monsters is BLOWING up on eBay. It's at $52 with two days left.

    Never intended to freak you out about Borderlands. I had some issues with them and choose not to deal with them directly but I do trust that the books they advertise will be produced. If I remember correctly they do not collect for the books until they are ready to ship either.

    I'm always at the ready t freak out. It doesn't take much. So don't blame yourself. Hopefully, at some point in the future, we will all be sharing pics and vids of our Little Gold Book of Impossible Editions by Stephen King.

    Hahaha, and I was going to bid on it before you mentioned it here and started a feeding frenzy. But I can't now!

    Like you, Jeff I went ahead, hedged my bet, and sent them a follow up email just to be sure about the same number moving forward. Here is the reply I received:

    You will be invoiced for the payment when it is ready to ship. As we announce each new title in Series III (thru our newsletter), we would want you to go to our site and pre-order each new title as announced—then you will automatically be invoiced when available to ship.

    make certain you are getting our newsletter.
    They also told me my number.

    This is one that I've been looking for for awhile, so I was quite excited to see on actually hit eBay and start out at a manageable amount. The worst part is the timing of when the auction ends - I'm traveling for work and not sure how often I'll be able to check on the results. Fingers crossed!

    Good luck, hopefully you are able to snag this one at a price that works for you!

    Thanks! Just have to be smart - don't need to get caught up in the eBay fever (like the time I spent $111 on the DVD of Army of Darkness that might be worth a nickel today . . .)

    Next will be to track down a copy of The Cases of Dana Roberts that was only available as a chapbook that was originally sold in the signed/numbered edition of Sub Press's Tales of Dark Fantasy 2. There's one copy on eBay - with the book - which I don't want.

    GOOD LUCK! I guess the only thing you can do is enter the absolute most you're willing to spend and then just hope.

    Well I got it!

    Increased my bid to where I was uncomfortable - but it came in lower than my original comfort level was. So win?

    Absolutely it's a win! I think it was worth every penny. Not an outrageous price for a book that doesn't surface that often.

    I'll bid on the next one.

    congrats! I hope the seller packs it well.

    Thanks!

    My Lansdale collection is getting close to “complete.” I use quotes because there are so many different editions of the same story it seems. Or single stories with a fancy edition later put into a collection.

    WELL that's a particularly cool score. I'm going to keep my eyes open for the next one. And I'll be sure not to post about it here!

    Have you preordered Rusty Puppy from Gauntlet? It'll be my first Gauntlet Press book. And my second Hap and Leonard book. I just bought the Ziesing Edition of Savage Season. Haven't read it yet.
