    My other fun book that I received (on Monday I believe,) is the latest Harlan Ellison collection from Subterranean Press - Can & Can'tankerous.

    The first thing about this book - which is practically impossible to capture in photographs - is the quality of the slipcase. It's possibly my favorite slipcase in my collection. It's a really cool dark grey color (that is bright red inside - which matches the overall theme of the book's design,) and is super smooth. It has has beveled edges which makes it unique when compared to my other slipcases.

    The grey/black and red theme is carried throughout the entire production. I'm really impressed. I think Sub Press truly outdid themselves here with the entire presentation.

    That's awful!! If I knew I would have pinged you to remind you. I know that when I got my Wool set signed, Jason said that he had only signed one other set (from Argentina I believe) so I'm sure he would have enjoyed another one.

    And I too love the remarque. Jason's a cool guy - my girlfriend thinks I'm stalking him, but I have progressed to getting a man-hug instead of a handshake and he always remembers her and my name (not that mine is tricky . . .)

    Darn cool remarque, Jason.

    Great additions. Glad the drive up to Kirkland was worth it!

    I appreciate the thought, but it's my own damn fault. Maybe this'll teach me to not rely on my pitted memory so much, and start using my Outlook calendar more for events like this.

    That looks really nice! I have one on the way too. I didn't order it when it was first announced, but Sub Press had undersold the limited by 30 copies, so I ordered one a few days ago.

    You're going to be impressed! It's a beautiful book. Enjoy.

    I might have to buy the trade now just so I don't have to lug around my fancy version. (Yes, I read my signed books - OH NO!)

    Yes, it is! It showed up yesterday. I'll have to read it when I get some time to just sit here at home with it. I read my signed books too, carefully, and they don't leave the house.

    I still have to get back to Ellison Wonderland. I started the new introduction, but then got distracted

    Received Hell's Bounty by the Champion Mojo Storyteller Joe Lansdale and his brother, John earlier in the week. I missed out when it went up for pre-order at SubPress. I knew I wanted the book, but I couldn't afford it as I had other books I wanted more. When it sold out, I was resigned to paying the inevitable after market mark up on E-Bay. Imagine my surprise when it showed up in stock at Amazon for only thirty bones. I couldn't pull the trigger fast enough.





















    Nice clean book. The Timothy Truman cover is amazing, just like the rest of the Lansdale titles he's done for SubPress. It was nice to see it utilized on the signature page as well. Super happy to have added it to my steadily growing Champion Joe collection.

    edit: looks like it's available again directly from SubPress.

    Very nice. I really wanted this one. Funds are still kind of tight right now. That cover is amazing.

    I almost purchased the book for the DJ art alone! Do you guys know if Sub sells DJs like CD does? Or any other publisher for that matter. I've gotten a budding interest in collecting and framing cover art that I really like.

    I've got some of Centipede's Jim Thompson covers if you'd like. No charge since they just put them in a box with a book awhile back. I'll just have to find them - moved in August and there are still a handful of boxes around that haven't gotten unpacked.

    Sweet offer, Jason! Thanks! If you could PM me the titles so that I can look them up or shoot me some pics, that would be great. No rush. Whenever ya get around to going through the boxes. I'll pay your shipping cost of course if I decide I want 'em.

    I'm such an easy target. I was going to give this one a pass -- gasp! yes, my first Lansdale pass! -- based on the very lukewarm reviews I've read of it and I'm trying -- trying, anyhow -- to cut down on my purchases this year. But your beautiful photos dashed those aspirations all to he** and it's back on my To Get list.

    I thought I missed my chance to get this, but right before shipping SP said they had a few more copies and expected it to be a sellout before shipping so I snagged one. They of course found more after shipping ...

    I'm excited out the new I Travel By Night book from Robert McCammon that went live this morning.

    I am, too, though I've opted to go the trade route on this series, so at least I don't have to sweat getting one right away.

    I think that Sub Press is trying to kill my budget with this new announcement. That being said, I'm pretty excited as well.
