    The band’s name is Australian Pink Floyd, which likely led to your confusion. To my mind, they should have named their band as they did their Twitter handle — Aussie Floyd — as that would’ve been a less cumbersome mouthful.

    I figured it out on about my fourth review of the tweet. My first conclusion was that Ste Michelle had gone international, which probably was not too much of a stretch given all the wineries they have purchased over the years.

    A couple ChiZine S/L HCs (which they no longer do for their releases, only trade-paperbacks these days).

    It is a great read. Funny, it was one of the books from his classic period that I didn’t read until recently, as I’d seen the film several times and felt I knew the story well enough. But I am glad I read the book.

    And as a follow-up that one, here is the signed/limited of 11/22/63, a book I enjoyed even more:

    Thanks, Brian...I think so, too. Really pleased, especially, to have that limited of 11/22/63...I wish I loved all of King's recent work as much as that one.

    Today's Showcase Book(s): my Terry Lamsley collection:

    I agree about 11/22/63 and recent works. Great add to the collection.

    Thanks, I'm not a King collector per se (or even close to "per se"), but I'm glad to have the limiteds I do have, especially when they're of my favorites of his work. I'd still someday love to have the coffin STAND limited, but given that I've yet to find a disposable $2500 burning a hole in my pocket for books, I still don't have a copy on my shelf. :-(

    Ah yes, less conservative than HEAD OF A TRAVELER, to say the least, but the slice-and-dice nature of two certainly make an interesting pair.

    I’ve gotten a little lazy about periodically posting links to interesting tweets, so I thought I’d remedy that with today’s, a Charles Grant tribute S/L HC anthology signed by Stephen King and others:

    Love that book. Still can't believe it retailed for $40!

    Wish I could find a copy on the secondary market for only double that price...

    I was one of the lucky ones that snagged it at the original retail price...certainly one of the best bangs for the buck I've ever purchased.

    I remember when it was announced I was sure it was not correct. I ordered and sure enough it was!
