    Thanks, I appreciate that. Yes, I waver between horror fiction and vintage pb noir fiction as my favorite genre -- push comes to shove I usually give the former the top spot, but there are vintage noir books that make me falter and wonder about that order... There are certain artists and authors who capture exactly why I love the noir stuff, and that print just ticked off all the boxes. Goodis, in fact, whose cover is displayed in the print, is one of my favorite noir authors, so the combination of Maguire and Goodis made the piece especially appealing.

    I actually have a vintage paperback (a Lionel White title) signed by Maguire on the title page, so will very likely let that suffice and keep my higher-end Kings and Centipedes...I was prepared to have the trade hurt, but not scar.

    EDIT: I should add that along with the signed Maguire pb I also have a vintage paperback (a John D. MacDonald title) signed by Robert McGinnis (as well as the signed/limited/slipcased book that came out a few years ago) and a couple signed pamphlets/chapbooks/? (kind of hard to describe what they are) by James Avati. To my mind, these three artists make up the Holy Trinity of vintage paperback artists, so even if I don't manage to get my hands on that above limited print, I still feel pretty fortunate to have signed pieces by all three gentlemen.
    Just posted the Robert Maguire signed pb as my Showcase Book of the Day:
