    I used to read Barker faithfully, till about a decade (nah, must be closer to two??) ago, when he would begin a new series, but somehow never continue it. Must be me though - I totally lost track of the Arabat series. How many books are there by now? Is this the second? Third? Will there be more?

    And, congratulations, Tom!! Enjoy!!

    This is the third book. Funny thing is, the only Barker I've read are his young adult tales: The Thief of Always and Abarat. I know I started The Great and Secret Show, but I can't say if I finished it or not.

    Sent off for Easton Press' The Martian Chronicles signed by Ray Bradbury.

    http://www.eastonpressbooks.com/leat....asp?code=2844

    I think it's part of their "Masterpieces of Sci-Fi" collection that they are selling singly (usually a signed volume comes every seventh book in the set. It's not numbered.) It's the original collection of short stories, not like SP's definitive MC volume, but I couldn't pass it up.

    Very nice Mr Boone, really like those ridged leather books that Easton does so well - nice score indeed

    It's from Goldsboro books, it's just the standard version I believe, but they're numbered. Not quite sure why, think it's the number he signed for Goldsboro.

    Just noticed they've found some stock of the signed Horns by Joe Hill again. Only £14.99 as well

    The signed and dated trade edition of Full Dark, No Stars by King, Night in Lonsome October and The UK signed edition of The Travelling Vampire Show by Laymon as well as the limited edition of Mister B Gone by Clive Barker.
    Can anyone give me a guess of how much these books are worth? I of course have a good idea, but I'd be interested to know what others think. The trade by King was actually $225, which I thought was kinda high whereas Just After Sunset was $200, both at Betts.
    And now I'm not sure if I'll be able to afford the limited of Weaveworld by Barker since I'm also paying on the Books of Blood limited by Barker as well as the limted edition of Dawn to Dusk by Bradbury too.

    Just ordered this (released 26OCT11):

    138809639.jpg

    • A handsome slipcase edition featuring a linen slipcase and book cover, foil stamped original design, acid-free paper and a satin ribbon marker.
    • A special conversation between George R. R. Martin and Barnes & Noble. The author discusses his writing influences, his own style, his characters and their perspectives, having his vision come to the screen, and more!
    • Barnes & Noble' s online series Meet the Writers interview with George R. R. Martin, in which the author talks about A Dance With Dragons, the fifth book in the Song of Ice and Fire series and a love of reading.
    • George R. R. Martin answers questions about the new HBO original series A Game of Thrones.
    • A special full-color preview, including original character sketches, of A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel, No. 1—based on George R. R. Martin's novel of the same name.

    It seems a B&N exclusive; I had tried to order the one from Harper Collins, but I never was able to get one.

    It appears there are two different states of the UK proof of King's 11.22.63. Both are numbered but have very different numbering schemes. The covers are identical. One has the statement "Embargoed/Hodder & Stoughton" on every page and the other doesn't. Here are the two pages:





    I apologize for the lousy scans, but I don't want to take the chance of harming the spine by opening them too widely.

    I just got the first of these. I also got a copy of the Publisher's letter, but I'm not posting it until well after the book is published. I don't want to take any possibilities that it could disclose my contact.
