    Nice grabs! I was so pissed that I was too late to get a copy of THE HUNTER FROM THE WOODS. Oh the pain! The pain of it all!

    I really wanted that Bradbury chapbook they had (SKELETONS), but like your experience w/ HUNTER it was Sold Out by the time I got there.

    I really like the look of the Douglas Western books, probably my favorite from TSB. Great adds!

    Grim Riders is one of my favorite novels that I read in 2017. Hell of a lot of fun.

    So I decided to take the gamble and got in on one of Dark Region's offers: For Halloween, they did a double up offer if you preordered I Am The Abyss, it would qualify you for two of their large grab bags. Abyss is one of the books that I've been excited about from DRP and finally decided to break down and pick it up, hoping that the grab bags would either (a) be of some interest or (b) be able to resell the books to help offset the cost of Abyss. I got my books and I think I did pretty well for myself. The contents were:

    Off Season by Jack Ketchum and the Limited of The Booking by Ramsey Campbell:

    Black Wings V signed limited from PS:

    The slipcased lettered edition of The Booking:

    The remaining bits of my DRP grab bag:

    The slipcased lettered edition of Bones Are Made To Be Broken by Paul Michael Anderson:

    A TPB and hardcover:

    I also got a Magic card and a Cthulhu Wars figure, but I'm not really into those.

    While I probably could have been okay without getting two different editions of the same book, I think that the contents of the grab bag were pretty nice.

    Looks like you did damn good with the grab bag actually! W.H. Pugmire is very enjoyable to read and a great bonus in addition to the Ketchum and Campbell books.

    The last few weeks I've been answering the nostalgic siren song that Grady Hendrix' PAPERBACKS FROM HELL inspired, and picked up a couple hauls of those wondeful Good Ol' pbs from the '80s/'90s horror boom. No real rhyme and reason to it my selections...just whatever was available at the time and looked like it had a chance to be something I'd actually enjoy reading and not just owning. I may have one more haul coming, but if not then these two hauls may be it for some time to come, as they're getting tougher and tougher to find as time wears on and inventory churns to more modern books in those mom-and-pop shops (that are themselves getting tougher and tougher to find).

    No classic horror-boom pb fans? Ahh, you all don't know what you're missing...

    Anybody pick up a CD book via their 50% Black Friday offer? I snagged a copy of Jack Ketchum's short-story collection GORILLA IN THE ROOM.

    I grabbed the trade editions of the three CD McCammon books and the trade edition of the father son Chizmar book. All to go with my limiteds.

    There is a group on Facebook, Small Press Limited Book Collectors, that I have been following. Someone in that group posted about BookOutlet.com where I found and after reading some reviews purchased Grim Death And Bill The Electrocuted Criminal. It is an illustrated 1930s Pulp-style novel. At PaperbackSwap.com, I have an account there, I saw available and snagged Winds of Revolution: Time Frame AD 1700-1800 (Time Frame). I read the Time Frame series. With my PaperbackSwap account this was almost a freebie. I see there are now two books at CD Publications that I want. I am unsure if I'll take advantage of their 50% Black Friday offer.

    This is actually the worst possible time to try to beef up your collection of old horror pbs; Grady's book has caused prices to jump due to all the Johnny-come-latelys.

    Yep, I'm finding that to be very true, unfortunately. Patience and luck will be my friends, I hope.
