    The GOBLIN slipcase is actually a slipcase that Earthling made for SCARLET GOSPELS and it fits perfectly. Paul sold me one but said he had very few to spare and that was a while ago. It's an awesome production all its own.

    As far as DEAD ASTRONAUTS: I preordered a trade edition and then VanderMeer posted that there was a bookstore in Florida that he visits and often signs books while he's there. So I emailed and bought a copy signed to jeffingoff. I also have the SubPress edition on preorder. I don't know if they have any more, but for anyone who's interested in getting signed VanderMeer's:


    Thank you for your interest in ordering Jeff VanderMeer's newest novel, DEAD ASTRONAUTS ($27.00 + tax and ship). We cannot wait to share this incredibly unique new story with you!

    To purchase a book personalized by Jeff VanderMeer, please call Midtown Reader at 850-425-2665 (M-Sat 10 am - 6 pm, Sunday 12-4 pm) and have the following information available:

    1. Credit card information including your card number, expiration date, and CVV.
    2. How many books you would like included in your order. Additional signed VanderMeer titles are also available for order.

    You shelves make me want to see more! I did not think my copy of Goblin had a slipcase. Thanks!

    My small Hallway Bookcase. If you stand on your head these look pretty good.

    Some really cool stuff in there. One of my biggest regrets in passing on a book was that I did not order the Mr. October set when it was announced. I have no idea what I was thinking.

    I was glad to jump on it because it was a great collection and it also helped the family out.

    I left a comment about one of his books on the old Shocklines board once. He actually sent me a message thanking me for my kind words and asked for my address. He sent me an inscribed copy of the book. Just a great person and he is missed. Can't remember what happened when the set was announced but somehow I did not get one.

    That is cool.

    We chatted a good amount on social media many years ago. I just went back and looked at some of our messages.

    At one point he sent me a partial script just to be nice. Pretty cool reading something that wasn't finished and, at least to me, from a well known author. I had the nerve to make a few comments and send them to him. He was gracious and said he appreciated the comments.

    Now I am trying to find the script. It's not in my messages so I'm not even sure how I received it. Maybe it is lost. :-(

    I had a few email exchanges with him that are long lost. I just remember him as an everyday guy who really appreciated when people liked his writing.

    Yes! That is what I remember as well.

    He loved his craft, loved talking his craft, and loved people. Just a regular good guy.

    Rick was a good guy, and a heckuva entertaining writer. I have the S/L MR.OCTOBER set, and am thrilled to have that homage to him. Have also a bunch of deluxe HCs from CD, PS, etc., as well all his pbos:

    Here’s an hour-long interview with him from back in 2012:

    Here are my King Trade Hardback shelves. Two cabinets with two sections each that are about 8 feet above the ground in our master bedroom. Glass doors so I do not have to get the ladder out to dust as often.

    If you guys are just looking to READ the two-volume MR. OCTOBER set, they're available digitally on Amazon for ten bucks apiece, and they're available as trade paperbacks. The hardcovers look pretty pricey.

    I find that I do not read ebooks. If it was available on audio I would be all over it. To be honest I really want it because it honors a writer who, in my opinion, is very underappreciated and once reached out to me in appreciation for my liking his work. I wish I could remember why I missed out originally. I remember the book was to benefit his family and I loved the idea. Somehow I missed the ordering window but I can;t remember why. The joy of getting older, you can hide your own Easter eggs!

    Thank you! I actually have my wife to thank for that one. She has given up on her efforts to get me to buy fewer books and is instead is suggesting creative ways to fit them into the house. One day we were lying in bed and she pointed up the the shelf. At that time she had some generally decorations up there, nothing she was to sold on but they kept it from being an empty space. She said "I wonder if you could find bookcases that would fit up there". The next day, before she had a chance to think about what she had offered up, I measured the space and ran to Ikea. Found that two of these would just fit. Bought them and had them installed that night. We both like them up there but When I add the King items I do not have I will not have room. Not sure what I am going to do about that. We have some shelves like that in our hallway and front room. Now when I look at them I just see how many books could fit up there. I have not asked her about converting those to book shelves yet. They are fully decorated and I do not think she would go for it. Of course I never thought she would want those in the bedroom and it was her idea so at some point I will ask and see what she says.
