    My Best Of short story collection made a jump forward as these trickled in over the last week. Only 3 are limiteds, but for mostly excellent condition and a total of $200 I’m happy with how everything turned out.

    Nice, Andrew! Sub does put out a beautiful product. I always love most of their DJ art even if the book isn't for me. Did you get 'em on sale via dinged copies and such? They look really nice.

    I noticed an ebay seller had 4 books I’d been looking at so contacted him with an offer on all 4 and we bargained and reached a deal, the Niven was an ebay listing that no one else bid on, Beagle was a Buy It Now, and the GRRM was me being lucky on Amazon and having no problem whatsoever removing a bookplate with no residue left behind.

    The GRRM has a tiny bit of dirt on the bottom front of the text block which is tough to avoid on a 1200-page book without a slipcase, the Larry Niven has a fairly serious bump on the lower corner of the front board that was sold as NF++ that I’m not too happy with and haven’t yet decided if I should mark the seller, but probably would have bought it for $20 in a dinged sale anyway, and the Beagle book had a scuffed jacket but the DJ has no dents or notches. Otherwise everything else is pristine.

    Only one of them is actually leather, but for 4,500 pages of SubPress-level career collections as a package it feels like a steal and will keep me busy for a long time. Sooner or later I'd like to review all of these.

    First off, glad to see I'm not the only one that keeps odd hours . Second, looks like ya made out pretty well then. I'd probably contact the seller if the bump wasn't disclosed and at least see if maybe he/she would refund ya bit if you want to keep the book. I really dislike finding undisclosed issues as I'm sure most do. At if everything is disclosed, you can make a judgment as to what you're willing to live with and pay for.

    I'll be posting lots of 'Salem's Lot AE edition pics in my collection thread. Want to give everyone a heads-up as to not spoil it for anyone who's still waiting on their copies.

    Congratulations on another wonderful addition to a wonderful collection!!

    I got this in the mail over the weekend: LIBRA NIGRUM SCIENTIA SECRETA (THE BLACK BOOK OF SECRET KNOWLEDGE) is a fictional treatise examining the back-story behind the mythos of Brian Keene and J.F. Gonzalez. Drawing inspiration from sources as varied as H.P. Lovecraft’s Necronomicon to J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion, this profusely-illustrated work of art is a dream come true for devotees of both author’s works. Part spell-book, part history, and part religious text, Libra Nigrum Scientia Secreta reveals the secrets behind Hanpa, the Thirteen, the Dark Ones, the Labyrinth, and much more.

    Wow! Great book, and something that would surely have you sent off to the Inquisition in earlier times.

    I believe Miskatonic Books is the publisher.
