    It's not a book, but if anybody in the world will appreciate this as much as I do, it will be people on this forum. I spent the weekend in Tokyo and came across this little gem in the back of a display case in a memorabilia/old toy sort of shop. The last thing I would have ever expected to come across. I have no idea where it came from or anything, but it is heavy, made of metal, and quite cool. There was also a cheaper one signed by some of the cast members on a big plastic base that said Phantasm 3, but it was pretty cheap looking and unruly.

    Where do you people live that you can find limited editions like that in used book stores?

    Argh, I hate this area.

    The first Phantasm is a favourite of mine. Great grab!

    That's really cool! I don't think I've ever actually seen the movie. I remember trying to watch it once, but it turned out to be "edited for TV", which made me switch it off right away.

    Picked up these reading copies at a few local bookstores today. Haven't read any of them but I loved the movie Ghost Story and have always wanted to read the book. I lost my reading copy of The Talisman somewhere a long the way in life. This old boy looks like it's been around the block a time or two. I wonder the stories it would tell about its readers..... Also picked up an As New copy of Revival 1st/1st that looked better than mine!

    I completely agree that the movie Ghost Story is a great one and I try to watch it each year. However the book has so much more depth that it is hard to compare them. You are in for a treat with a first reading of Ghost Story! After that you should pick up Peter Straub's Lost Boy:Lost Girl which is Peter Straub's best Ghost Story.

    Thanks, Martin for the suggestion. One of the stores had Lost Boy:Lost Girl right next to Ghost Story, but never having read anything by Straub, I didn't pick it up. I'll try and return next week to do that.

    Good tip Martin, I haven't read Lost Boy:Lost Girl either but am a big fan of Ghost Story. It was one of my earlier challenging reads in horror and helped open me up to what was possible. He's right, Brian, you're in for something special. I've got the Ghost Story movie and have been meaning to watch it but my reading pile keeps taking over. Martin's comment will help me get to it.

    I showed off a couple of cool Jason Gurley (Eleanor, did the artwork for Sub Press's Wool trilogy) signed book that I got a few weeks ago. This week I acquired two new cool items.

    First up is the UK edition of Eleanor. Yeah, I might own this book a handful of times already, but the cover's artwork was too beautiful to pass up:

    eleanor_UK.jpg

    And now what is possibly the jewel of my book collection. Is this better than my Jim Lee doodle of Elvis? My various Neil Gaiman doodles? Even my signed Doctor Sleep (thank you CD!)? Quite possibly.

    Jason had a contest to win an edition of Eleanor that he painted a beautiful watercolor painting on the book's boards. I entered the contest and then also asked my girlfriend to as well. She promptly asked her best friend and her sister-in-law to enter as well. Why not?

    Well, long story short - I didn't win. My her friend did!

    Complete Eleanor.jpg

    I'm pretty stoked about this. Too bad the painting is hidden under the book's jacket . . .
