    I've been meaning to try out the Repairman Jack books again. I read LEGACIES years back and thought it was rather meh. I had the same feelings about THE KEEP. I think that my feelings were tainted by the fact that I was wanting horror novels and not adventure novels with fantastic elements which is what I remember these two being more in line with.

    The entire Repairman Jack series is like that, so if that’s not your thing I would avoid it and save yourself $$$ and disappointment. I enjoy the RJ saga (though I did get a bit burnt out on it by the end), but I also really like crime fiction so for me it’s a natural fit.

    Thanks for the heads up. Maybe I'll track down some used paperbacks to test the waters. I've been getting more into crime fiction so I might have a better reaction to the series this time.

    NEP really knew how to do lettered editions…attention to detail, creative presentation, cool add’l items, etc. They made other publishers’ lettereds pale in comparison, with the possible exception of Bloodletting Press.

    Very cool. Hadn't seen this one before. Did the stand come with the purchase or was that separate?

    Not sure, as I didn’t buy either (and can’t recall if it was priced as a package or individually). I edited for Don, so was comped all his lettered editions.

    Reassure her the lack of a helmet would be the least of the gal's problem when jumping an older Harley with stock, unforgiving suspension off a river pier over exploding hippie vans while firing a shotgun with the short stock planted against the side of her chest.

    Sadly, I haven't done any of those things on my pictured blue motorcycle, but then again I also haven't ridden without a helmet since I was a teenager so am not quite sure what my point is... ;-)

    The funny part is I had already formulated my response to what she would have said and it went like this 'She is holding a shotgun with both hands and you are worried about the helmet?'
