    Thanks, guy...look forward to reading it sometime soon.

    Here's something that's even more exciting to me...

    A little background: A few years ago an original cover painting come up for bid on eBay, and sat unsold at $799 for several weeks. I wanted it so much, but couldn't pull the trigger on something that frivolous and of that expense at the time. I still remember it, though, and still regret my passing on it, though agree w/ my decision at the time. So I've kept an eye out for the UK paperback that featured it ever since, but all copies are either way too expensive or too beat up...I finally found a copy that is in like-new condition and at a steal of a deal. It's today's Showcase Book:

    This less a "brag" about the Showcase Book I posted today (Sat., 8/31) and, instead, more about the person -- Stephen King -- who dropped in on the thread to comment. I always hope my Showcase Book posts will prompt some discussion and it seems like more often than not they do (to varying degrees), but King's appearance was certainly a first -- and a pretty cool one at that.

    Quite the thread. A couple of pretty good authors and a You Tube star.

    A big score on a couple Arkham House HCs by August Derleth...both Fine/Fine, and both just 12.5 cents each (25 cents each on a Buy-One-Get-One-Free sale):

    This tweet confused me when I first saw it. I read it as you were at a Pink Floyd show in Australia and the stage was from Chateau Ste Michelle which is outside Seattle. I confuse easily.
