    Congrats on the win!

    I'm glad to hear at least some of these LITTLE BOOK OF volumes have some value...taken individually, they typically don't seem to go for much on the aftermarket. I know the Hill and Gaiman are exceptions to the rule, but good to hear there are some other exceptions as well.

    Agreed. It's hard with these types of sets as I personally wouldn't collect them separately, part due to my collectors' OCD and part the way they display on the shelve individually versus as a set. The Keene book has also gone for a decent amount in the past. I want to piece together a Series I set, but I just don't know how much I'd be willing to drop the money for the Gaiman volume. Definitely not the $350 that a seller has listed one for on eBay.

    I think the Laird Barron one was getting some money.

    I only ever bought one—A Little Gold Book of Ghastly Stuff by Neil Gaiman—because I sort of collect Gaiman things. I sent a begging email to Elizabeth, and she got me #362. I'm happy.

    Is that Gahan Wilson's art on the cover of the Gaiman Little Book?

    Yes. It’s one of the few (only?) of the LITTLE BOOKs that have truly illustrated boards...at least, as I recall this morning, before my first cup of coffee.

    Yes, Gahan did the cover drawing for this one. The same art also appears on the frontis and title pages, which he was kind enough to sign for me.

    I really like the stuff he did for the Centipede Press Blackburn novels. Not usually my taste, but I like it!

    I love the work he did for Zelazny's A Night In the Lonesome October.

    Trust, then coffee, then verify.

    Tonight I should be unboxing my improbable purchase of the entire Little Books Series II. I don't see how I can have a Joe Hill in there with what I paid. It must be missing the signature. Or the cover. Or all the pages. But let's find out!

    Hopefully they didn't pull a fast one and substitute a Little Book by Hoe Jill. I never liked her writing.

    I'll drop one here tonight. Unscripted. It could be as captivating as when Geraldo breached Al Capone's vault!

    Me neither! She writes a lot about gardening and exchanging money for sex.
