    True, though I still have yet to find a copy of A Mountain Walked at anywhere near list price. And I’ve been patient, dang it.

    I have that one...and, yeah, if I ever sold that one, it’d be, ahem, just a bit above list. ;-)

    I grabbed a copy of Weed Species by Jack Ketchum yesterday at a book show. Had a small Chadbourne illustration too.

    Cool illustration. I really enjoyed that story.

    Very nice; gotta love (the late) Ketchum.

    Here's what showed up on my doorstep this weekend...one of 64 signed and numbered oversized hardcovers from Thunderstorm Books.

    Someday I'll add a Thunderstorm book to my collection. Just don't know if what they do is what I dig.

    I'm very selective w/ Thunderstorm because A). they're expensive so I have to choose wisely, and B). most of the authors this largely micro-press publisher publishes don't interest me. I have probably only half-a-dozen Thunderstorm titles, so that gives some idea just how selective I am. That said, I really like Jeff Strand's work, so this one was an easy decision...I also have their Strand volume from last year, a short-story collection called EVERYTHING HAS TEETH.

    On an objective level, though, their production quality is pretty high, with beautiful endpapers and nice jacket art...I frankly wish they had more authors I liked so I could be a more regular customer. Though for my wallet's sake, I suppose that's just as well.

    I buy a few of their books. All are very nice and great quality. Great service too. I pick and choose as I can't afford them all. I stick to buying everything Brian Keene, Kelli Owen, and just finished a Jonathan Janz imprint. A few others as I can afford them but mostly those 3 authors somehow. If you like westerns I highly recommend something in his Douglas Western line. I picked up the most recent and it's amazing work.

    Thanks for the thoughts on Thunderstorm. I'm subscribed to their newsletter and I check the site every so often. Seems only a matter of time before I jump in.

    Actually Paul has a pretty diverse group of authors he works with. Kealan Patrick Burke, Ronald Kelly and Jonathan Janz are a few you may dig. They produce beautiful books and Paul is great to deal with as well.

    I collected the elementals and the chapbooks. I have a few other titles including Clickers Forever.

    The ones I have are by Ronald Mafli, Sarah Pinborough, Brian Keene, Jeff Strand, Kealan P. Burke, Ronald Kelly...I think that's it. Come to think of it, looks like I have more Thunderstorm books than the six I indicated above I thought I had...guess it's probably closer to ten.

    Sarah Pinborough? Interesting. I have her Earthling book They Say a Girl Died Here Once and I liked it a lot.

    I bought the complete Western series and the Ron Kelly essentials a few odds and ends. Nice books all around.

    Very nice looking book. I love Jeff Strand. He really knows how to balance horror and humor better then just about anyone.

    I kinda wish I would've ordered that set. I even had an opportunity to buy a complete set in the aftermarket for a decent price a year or two ago, and again passed it up. Glutton for disappointment, I guess.

    Most of you are probably aware of my obsession with David Petersen - and I'm constantly on the lookout for more pieces. Luckily (or unluckily,) he's got A LOT of pieces, so there are still a ton of items I don't have.

    Today, eBay delivered two recent acquisitions - one fairly common - and the second is far less common.

    First - the common item - his variant cover to the TMNT Usagi Yojimo one shot:
    IMG_4829.JPG

    And the second one - the one I'm REALLY EXCITED to have - a poster he did for Mondo for Disney's The Rescuers:
    IMG_4830.JPG

    This one has received the GF's thumbs up - which means I need to find appropriate wall space to frame and hang it up. I have a feeling my Doctor Who poster is going to be rotated out and back into a cardboard tube.

    I guess I’ll throw my two cents in as well. I was a pretty avid Thunderstorm collector until recently. I agree with everyone else and think their production values are great and Paul really cares about his customers. Their output is also insane. 2-3 books a month is not uncommon and that gets pretty rich at $70+ a book. I stepped away mostly because I wanted to take my collection in a different direction and wound up selling almost my entire TSB collection.
