    If You Could See Me Now was excellent.

    I would also recommend The Hellfire Club. It is a Straub book that does not seem to get much attention but I really liked it.

    Straub: GHOST STORY is his finest work and a seminal work in the genre.

    SCARLET GOSPELS: Beyond his BoB volumes, I'm not much of a Barker fan anymore, but, wow, that volume is gorgeous...congrats.

    I haven't read it yet but I hear Straub's Shadowland is very good.

    I remember liking it a lot. I know I read it a few times, many years ago.

    I did, through SubPress. Love that novel! I saw a pic or two on DT, nothing extensive, but the book was striking. Really looking forward to it.

    Hey, brother Mike! Good to see you around. My wife really loves that book. It's part of a trilogy right? I believe the store owner had a copy of it as well.

    Today I met the lovely and talented Kasey Lansdale as well as his ownself, who was kind enough to sign my trade editions of some of the best damned short story collections available as well as his intro page for Tim Lebbon's limited Last Exit for the Lost. Also met Jason V. Brock and talked to him about his A Darke Phantastique, which is a very nice edition I'll be digging into soon, was able to tell Glen Hirshberg how much I liked "A Dark Carnival" from The Two Sams collection, as well as thank Mr. William F. Nolan for writing Logan's Run.

    God of the Razor is a discarded (to Hell) library book:

    Nice haul! I haven't met Lansdale yet but have a ton of stuff signed. He's like Joe Hill where an unsigned book might be worth more.

    Speaking of Lansdale - read my first Hap and Leonard book last night. What a fun ride.

    Bugen: Nice! I almost called Dark Delicacies this morning to order signed copies of the new HCs from Lansdale and Hirshberg, but decided to hold off for now. Sounds like it was a great event, with some unannounced folks (Brock and Nolan).

    Thanks guys! Anybody from the L.A. area heading to Glendale tomorrow for the author signing? There are supposed to be a whole ton of great writers there. I'm probably going and would love to meet some of my CD peeps if anyone's around. If I can track down Mr. Powers I'm getting this signed (mine was unsigned, unnumbered copy). Also a couple of pretty major anthologies.
