    I don't remember who - but someone here posted about these books awhile back, and they definitely intrigued me. And I finally, FINALLY, broke down and bought them. And not only did I buy them, a buddy of mine I met through TDT told me about this omnibus edition, so I of course had to get one of those too.

    First, here are the new paperback copies of Cixin Liu's (or Liu Cixin's) Remembrance of Earth's Past trilogy:
    WNGM7171.JPG

    I especially love the uniformed look - plus how well they match the omnibus edition:
    IMG_6721.JPG IMG_6722.JPG IMG_6723.JPG

    Sadly it came damaged, but based on quite a few things I've heard, that's almost to be expected from these UK bookstores that ship to the US. Why they haven't figured out how to use a proper box is beyond me.

    I've been waiting quite a while for these books to arrive - they're next on to read list - so I've had to read some other books in the meantime. Of course, they day before these finally arrived, an eBook I requested my library to purchase was delivered to me, so I'm going to need to read that first.

    Excited to finally read this series!

    And thank you to whomever it was a while back that posted pictures of their signed editions. You've now cost me a few dollars. Like everyone else around here it seems, you punks.

    Had a few signed/limiteds show up the last couple of weeks:

    A LITTLE COBALT BOOK OF OLD BLUE STORIES...AND STUFF, by Mort Castle (Borderlands Press)

    BRING HER BACK, Jeff Strand (Thunderstorm Books) -- was also generously gifted a couple other titles: THE CORPSE AND THE GIRL FROM MIAMI by John Urbancik and THE SPECIAL by James Newman & Mark Steensland

    Picked up a number of other items from eBay and Half-Price Books as well, but the above are the genre limiteds.

    Ugh. By the time I found out THE SPECIAL even existed, it was sold out. Hopefully, it'll hit digital soon

    This arrived in the mail today:

    My love for Mouse Guard isn't a secret . . . and I'm still slowly acquiring David Petersen treasures. Today, eBay brought me two of his older sketchbooks - the 2011 and 2012 editions:
    IMG_6740.jpg

    I also have the 2015, 2016, and 2017 versions (I thought I lost my 2017 - I looked EVERYWHERE - some places twice - only to find it sitting on my desk - doh!):
    IMG_6741.jpg


    I'm going to keep my eyes peeled on eBay for the others - these were such a good price (plus the seller accepted my offer so I saved some money!) that I couldn't pass up the chance.

    Ben - if you look through my postings, you'll probably see A LOT of Mouse Guard stuff - and it barely scratches the surface.

    It's a tiny independent comic about mice with swords. Once I made the mistake of describing it as Hobbit-like, but that's not a fair comparison since there's nothing magical about it (well, except for the fact that mice talk and have swords . . .)

    The artwork is amazing - the story is even better. I'd recommend taking a look at it if you like comics, or at least beautiful artwork.

    In addition to my GF's new iPhone, yesterday I also got this:

    The fancy black edition of Terry Moore's Rachel Rising - complete with signed print and signed bookplate:
    IMG_6753.JPG

    I have the regular trade hardcover, but really wanted the version he sold directly on his website. I missed its original offering because it came out a few years ago while I wasn't paying attention to the world of comics. Found a SCREAMING deal on eBay for it - and if I'm completely honest, the seller had this one WAY under-priced. I saw it, and snagged it immediately - I only paused to make sure the weird marks on the back weren't damage (they were shiny birds.)

    Got a signed copy of Grady Hendrix' new one, WE SOLD OUR SOULS, at his tour stop last night at Third Place Books in Ravenna. He puts on one heckuva entertaining show.

    I forgot that that was last night. Damnit. Of course, it would have been next to impossible to have gone because of my dog (imagine taking the bus from Eastgate to Seattle, the train from Seattle to Lakewood, and then letting the dog out, only to turn around and drive up to Seattle.)

    Plus, there was about armed and despondent/suicidal guy that stopped his truck on the 520 bridge and shut down traffic, both eastbound and westbound, during that time for about two hours as police, SWAT, and negotiators dealt with him. It backed up traffic significantly, to say the least. Thankfully, we learned about it just before we left the house, so we ended up going from Redmond up to Bothell and through Lake City to get to Ravenna…it was really our only option.
