    Not the latest, but I picked this up a couple of weeks ago and finally got a pic last night. Packed full of artwork.

Filed back in March, so I figured I'd have to wait until September or October at least to get a letter saying that I'd been denied and having to file an appeal, but got approved the first time. Hate that I need it, but not able to work. Luckily get VA benefits, too. Social Security is definitely not enough to live on by itself, that's for sure!
    Glad it worked out. I get a little shrapnel money form the VA myself. People have been knocking the VA of late, it did take about two years to get approved, but if you were in the military were really surprised by the wait? The point being, they came through in the end, I get a little money and pretty good health care and luckily, 3 IEDs later, I don't hear too well, I have a cool scar on my forehead, but I can still work. Don't feel bad that you're drawing benefits that you've earned/are entitled to.

    Oh I don't feel bad at all, I depend on it. I only had to wait about 5 months for my initial claim, which was fast. Definitely expected to wait longer than that! If you go in the Army without patience then you are screwed, lol! Luckily I was already patient, though I became even more patient as a result. That's probably why I don't get upset about waiting years for some books.

    I get a good amount of money now, but I'd rather be working. I actually don't mind being home all the time, but I could make a lot more money working in the field I got my degree in, which was computer networking. Didn't get shrapnel, though I was probably 30 seconds from getting it once from a mortar that hit close to where I was smoking. Do have tinnitus though, probably from the incoming and outgoing mortars from my base in Iraq

    One of my Holy Grails:



    I now have a complete set of Green Mile proofs.

    According to my notes, no more than 12 of these exist, contrary to what has been said.

    I have a few things in the pipeline right now, but my next Holy Grail is the orange Plume proof of The Gunslinger. Of course, funds are really tight right now.

    Right now I am waiting to get a copy of 4 Killers, a traycased edition of King's Way Press' edition of Killer's Diary by Brian Pinkerton, and Alice Walks by Michael Aronovitz from Centipede Press. Look forward to seeing the quality of their work.

    Today I picked up a HC copy of the true crime book Lost Girls

    I also bought Kindle editions of From a Changeling Star by Jeffrey A Carver and Ancient Enemy by Michael McBride

    That's a nice list of items coming your way. I have Alice Walks and I thought that the presentation was very nice, though I have yet to read it. Aronovitz's collection of short stories, Seven Deadly Pleasures, is one of my top reads of the year so far.

    Killer's Diary sounds very good, and the edition I got came with the traycase, so didn't want to pass that up. The Traycase costs $20 from King's Way

    Couldn't pass up the good price on 4 Killers either.

    So, the local Goodwill bookstore had a 50% off sale this last Saturday - could I resist? Uhm.....NO!!!!!

    Didn't really have much I was too interested in, but did grab 3 books: Delores Claiborne, Just After Sunset (both in HC), and Barker's Mister B Gone.

    I find it very hard to find the authors I really like in the used market (Simmons, Barker are 2 that are rare finds for me, in good condition).

    While not a collector's item by any means, I did just acquire a 13th printing of the original version of Stephen King's The Stand in hardcover. No more bumming around with a wee little paperback copy on my SK shelf.

    Isn't a beauty. But what really surprised me when I received my copy, was that I ordered it 3 years ago. Worth the wait!

    Thanks, Sock Monkey. I debated for a while whether or not to even pick it up. As a whole it seemed too expensive for a book I ended up rating 3 stars, but Smoke and Mirrors has a number of excellent tales, and two I felt were pure genius, so in the end I went for it. Blown away by the level and quantity of artwork within. A very nice production by SubPress.

    Picked up these Reading gargoyles at the flea market. They're keeping an eye on a few of my new additions.
    Have a great weekend,

    I have those exact ones! Was given them as an awesome birthday present, and they sit atop my bookshelf like horns.

    Just bought PC copies of Dark'Un and Restless Shadows from Ronald Kelly, both to be inscribed and remarqued Won Restless Shadows on eBay, but got outbid on Dark'Un because I forgot to increase my high bid over the minimum and wasn't where I was able to check on it. Ronald had another copy, which he offered me over Facebook and definitely. Told him he could definitely inscribe them if he chose to since I have no plans to sell them. Then he said he'd inscribe and remarque them Definitely looking forward to getting them
