    I have the first set of the series as well; this is the second set. I love Woolrich, and I love Centipede's work, so I'm thrilled that the Woolrich estate has chosen Centipede to reprint these beautiful new editions (and new short-story collections). Phenomenal production job as always by CP, and I like that they've added an old-world unique topstain for each portion of the series (this time burgundy, last time blue), so while there is wonderful consistency with size, font, layout, etc. (and I love those unique white images on the spine (brass knuckles, cigarette, claw marks, etc.)), there is also a feature that makes each portion of the series unique and set off from one another. Every time I receive a book by Centipede I'm impressed by the well-conceived quality of their design and clear passion to produce volumes that are immediately apparent as something special and enduring.

    Color me jealous. I really wanted these even though I've never read anything from Woolrich before. Something told me I wasn't going to be disappointed though.

    Fine looking set.

    It's been a year of sets and Centipede. I think just within the last year -- certainly not much more than, I don't believe -- I've acquired sets from James Herbert (RATS trilogy), Michael McDowell (BLACKWATER saga), Karl Edward Wagner (KANE series), and now this second Woolrich set. Glad Jerad spreads these sets out a bit, as the $$$ certainly adds up, unfortunately.

    Good looking art in that one.

    Mine was waiting for me when I got home as well. Haven't been disappointed by Centipede yet. The mysteries/crime fiction titles are a favorite of mine. Since Ron already kindly posted his pictures, I'll spare y'all my photography lol! Great adds Ron!

    Jerad doesn't send shipping notices -- at least, not in my experience.

    Mine, too. The Paul Cain collection is, in particular, an impressive volume.

    I'm looking forward to the next batch of Jim Thompson titles.

    I've never gotten one either. If you think you should have had the books by now, you should email Jerad to make sure they're not lost in transit.

    My set showed up yesterday. I could have sworn I received some sort of notice for the last two orders, but maybe not.

    Just received this today from Dark Regions (also Cal Wild #1), part of a stretch goal from their Christmas Horror anthology. It's a 38MB mobi file (ouch)! Looks to have a lot of illustrations which I don't think Kindles handle too well, but there are a bunch of solid authors here. Has anyone read Chiral Mad #1 or #2?

    I have read both of the other volumes in this series
    Loved them. I too got the mobi file for this from that campaign. Looking forward to reading this one

    My latest:



    It contains "Beautiful" by King, which is a three-paragraph non-fiction work regarding his "crush" on Kim Novak.

    Centipede's new Masters of Science Fiction series begins with Fritz Leiber and James Patrick Kelly, 1400 combined pages of superb fiction and Centipede quality for a total of $90, tough to beat.

    Everyone knows Fritz Leiber, but in case folks have missed his short science fiction and would like convincing here's a link to one of my favorite stories from any writer, "Space-Time for Springers." https://www.baen.com/Chapters/978162...791207___2.htm

    I couldn't find a free online version of Kelly's story "Think Like a Dinosaur" but it's also a stunner. These will be cover-to-cover reads.
