    And I just snagged a copy for $23.52 - basically 50% so not pulling the trigger on the Sub Press 50% off sale isn't a missed opportunity. (The trade version, the SN isn't something I need - this is definitely for reading.)

    Congrats, that's a steal! Everything I've read from Reynolds has been good but the stories "Minla's Flowers" and "Beyond the Aquila Rift" were incredible. I'm really looking forward to the rest.

    Beautiful book and I love that Sub Press does these Best Of volumes, but I'm afraid "hard sci-fi" and I just don't mix. I've read a good number of "soft sci-fi" volumes over my lifetime that I've enjoyed and treasure (e.g. FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON, Bradbury's material, etc.), but there's a definite division between the two that I just can't seem to cross.

    Thanks! It had a starting bid of $10; couldn't pass it up and try.

    No idea when I'll have a chance to even begin reading this monster but I'm excited about giving it a shot.

    I tell myself that I like scifi, but I've read some that I struggled with. But for $24 it's worth a shot.

    No pictures (because I'm lazy and it's not convenient at the moment,) but yesterday my copy of 'Salem's Lot arrived from PS Publishing.

    First observation is that DAMN - they know how to pack a book for safety. Wow.

    Second - this set is pretty cool looking. I love the three individual books, and now it makes me second guess the decision that I was thinking about making - and that was to stop buying those editions.

    Only complaint is that it only has one signature - from the cover artist. Seems a little lacking to me.

    Finally heard from Barry - and sadly there's nothing he can do. He said if I messaged him earlier there would have been a chance. But the thing is - I did message him - twice - but using the Contact Us link on his site rather than e-mailing, and those messages never appeared.

    Just frustrating, but I can't get too worked up about it since PS did the same thing to me on their King Anniversary sets - didn't match the first number so I stopped trying.

    It looks very similar in quality and bonus features to First Blood.

    M only problem is that they didn't honor my request to match numbers. It's kind of upsetting but I'm not sure there's much that can be done, especially since the book came shrinkwrapped, there wouldn't be an easy way to know what number it was.

    Three new additions. Love the PS Salem's Lot. The size of the books is neat and the slipcase is wDSCN3272.jpgell done. Boy's Life, fantastic book, artwork and classy slipcase. Dying of Fright? Totally 70's throwback with Lee brown Coye Illustrations

    Nice, I really like the art on the Salem's Lot slipcase.

    I have to say I'm a bit surprised that your copy arrived before mine in that case. I ordered direct from PS. To think that they shipped to the distributors then they had the time to ship out to their customers before PS was even able to send out copies to those ordering direct from them is a little strange. Nonetheless I'm sure mine will arrive soon. Maybe even tomorrow, it was a civic holiday here today.

    I ordered directly as well and thought the same thing. No holiday here today. I wonder if CD received their allotment already.

    I think Dan had mentioned on the Dt.org board that they had received some but not all and were waiting for the rest to arrive before shipping.

    Scored this little beauty, signed by Gaiman, off ebay for $12! It's a sad, thoughtful, dystopian graphic novel that's only seen print in this edition:
