    Very nice! I would love to have that Fahrenheit 451 in my collection.

    I wish I had the first edition of Carrie; but my art teacher and I were very close and when she went to Ohio, she found a Canadian edition of Carrie. It's one of my treasures.

    My latest, as in 20 minutes ago, acquistions: Easton Press' Day After Doomsday set.

    Front piece for each volume by Patrick Jones. Sorry about the focus on each one. I spend my money on books, not cameras.

    No they're not signed. It would be nice if they were. I've got the 6 signed Ep books posted earlier in this thread, but that's it from EP. They do have signed copies of Flash Forward, The Immortality Factor, Riddley Walker,Directive 51, Hylozoic, and other SF novels on ther web site,tho.

    Excellent additions! I just read Lucifer's Hammer not that long ago and thought the story is holding up well.

    Great addition! Would really like to have a nice copy of I Am Legend in my collection.

    I need to read I Am Legend. Although I read The Postman after seeing the movie, and didn't like it as much. I hope it wouldn't be the same.

    I Am Legend is a great book.
    One of Matheson's best, I think.

    Stayed up most of the night reading I am Legend--25 to 30 pages an hour is about average for me--had to read around the baseball games as well.

    Dry in a lot of places, but I love intellectual pursuit books, so Legend gets an approval nod from me. Halfway through, I realized that there's also 10 of Matheson's shorter works in the volume.

    I love happy surprises.

    Centipede Press' The Ninth Configuration:

    I wasn't expecting to find the signature page at the end of the book and I did have a moment of anxiety, until I remembered the face of my father and looked there.

    I do want to express indignation about bookseller stickers placed on the covers of books.
    But I've become adept at removing them and the residue.

    Bookseller stickers.... don't get me started on that one. Lets just say I don't like them, not one bit. But, compared to what my bookstore does to books, stickers aren't so bad. They put those plastic things on the inside of the back cover:



    The glue is so strong, it makes them almost impossible to take off without damaging the book!

    Holy Book-selling Blunders, Batman!

    You need to find another bookstore!

    I wish it was just that easy. It has the best selection of books in the area. Other stores with books in English maybe have a shelf or two at the most and most of the time they have nothing new that I don't already have. Although I heard about some other bookstore in the area that supposedly has a good selection, just need to find it.

    Why anyone would do that to books is beyond me. Would it be possible to talk to them and have things set aside for you without those tags being attached? Obviously you'd have to know what you'd want to get ahead of time though. Might not be possible, but wouldn't hurt to ask I suppose.

    And here I am bitching about having to use Goo Gone and leather wipes to clean residue of a cover. I've never encounter a sticker on a paper cover (like SUbterranean Press uses), tho; I'd probably just pass the book up. I was able to get a good copy of King's The Dead Zone cheaply because of 4 stickers placed on it (one a child's unicorn sticker)-took me all day, but i fixed it.

    I'll try that, maybe I can work something out with them. Have them set aside the books for me when a shipment comes in or something like that. Or convince them to get rid of those damn tags.
