    The Forgotten Squadron: The 449th Fighter Squadron in World War II by Daniel Jackson. This World War II military history book is trippy. The features: Nice marbled endpapers, high resolution photos printed directly onto the inside sides (left front and right back) of the book plus the dustjacket's description of the book with the photos. In the middle of the book I found a huge bookmark from Schiffer Publishing Ltd. I got it from hamiltonbook.com I was curious why the lowest price was $29.95 + tax + shipping from hamiltonbook.com Now I know why. I'd been looking for a history of the Flying Tigers that was not a 300 + page book. While not a complete history of the Flying Tigers The Forgotten Squadron: The 449th Fighter Squadron in World War II may be adequate. I purchased a $5.99 DVD-R documentary on eBay supposedly about the Flying Tigers. That DVD-R was a disappointment.

    I purchased By No Mortal Hand by Daniel McGachey. The cover art is really beautiful. I read that By No Mortal Hand is a fine example of Jamesian ghostly fiction and I thought what is Jamesian ghostly fiction? I know now. I did read the author's collection from Dark Regions Press - They That Dwell In Dark Places and loved that book. Below is the cover to By No Mortal Hand. ~Cap

    Those who enjoy Jamesian fiction would be well-served to explore the catalogue of offerings from (the now defunct) Ash Tree Press...lots of good stuff to be had.

    This looks interesting. I'm not familiar with Sarob Press. How's the quality of their books?

    I only have one book from Sarob Press, a collection by David Niall Wilson. I purchased Defining Moments before Sarob Press shut their doors for a few years. Defining Moments is a nicely produced book. I think it was issued without a dustjacket. By No Mortal Hand is the first Sarob Press title I've purchased since they started publishing books again. ~Cap

    I have Michael Chislett's In the City of Ghost's, I've also ordered his new collection, Where Shadows Gather. The book I have is on the small side, well put together, it reminds me of the books that Swan River publishes.

    Thanks for the info. I haven't much experience with Sarob or Swan River, though I keep being tempted when I see them show up on Camelot Books's home page for preorder. I was also recently tempted by this book from Undertow: http://undertowpublications.com/the-...l-look-strange. I'm just not a fan of bookplates so I've held off.

    I also have two Swan River Press titles. The House On The Borderland by William Hope Hodgson (Signed w. CD) and The Bleeding Horse And Other Ghost Stories (Comes w. bonus chapbook and other goodies). I'm also a patron of the Swan River Press at the $35 "Diamond Lens" level. ~Cap

    Nice adds! SMALL KINGDOMS sounded interesting and I've been eyeing THE BUZZARD ZONE. That's a roundabout way of saying that I'm envious of your new books!

    LOL. This is what happens because I don't buy much King, it frees my cash flow for smaller things. I'm actually building the R. Kelly, see what I did there, collection, so I can sell it to Ron at immense profit, the money going towards my nursing home fund HAHHA!!

    Too funny...I just in fact replied to brlesh r.e. his mention that he was tiring of Kelly but still had the Thunderstorm Ronald Kelly Essentials volumes...well now, I thought, if those need a new home at a reasonable price, well then I might be able to help with that... ;-).

    Let us know what you think of THE BUZZARD ZONE. I was sorely tempted by that one, but ultimately my aversion to zombies got the better of me.

    Recently picked up this beautiful copy of Ramsey's 'Midnight Sun'. Signed and dated in the month of publication.

    Slipcase for Elevation arrived today. I must say, these slipcases sure do make ordinary books look extraordinary. It's always a pleasant surprise when something arrives that you don't remember ordering. It's like Christmas!
