    I said it over at Brian's forum, but let me say it again: Holy shit.

    Stopped by the library to discover a book sale. Happy, happy, joy, joy.

    I got a bunch of Thieves' World books; about half of them I already owned but these are better copies - plus I found some of the novels (Shadowspawn, Beyond the Veil, etc.).

    Got four Charles de Lint books, including "Drink Down The Moon," which I don't recall ever seeing before.

    "Magic Kingdom For Sale - Sold!" by Terry Brooks

    Two by John Myers Myers: The Harp and The Blade, Silverlock.

    And the first six Elric books.

    "Magic Kingdom For Sale - Sold!" was my first book signing in April '86. It's a fun light read.

    I'm sure I'll read it again, but got it mainly for the nostalgia factor since I bought it way back when it first came out. Thirty years. Holy crap.

    I know. It's crazy when I look some of the books I have had over 30 / 35 years that I purchased when they were brand new.

    Two every awesome experiences today. First, I received Dave's extra copy of the trade edition of 'Salem's Lot illustrated. Looks like it just came off the press this morning. Couldn't have asked for a better copy! Probably my nicest 2nd hand pick up to date. Great to know like minded collectors really care for their stuff. Thanks again, Dave!

    Second, purchased a dinged copy of The Shining Folio edition from a fellow TDT member and boy am I impressed with it as well. Very nicely done and a nice, heavy book. The book does fit pretty tightly in the slipcase but I wouldn't hesitate to order directly from them in the future.

    You're welcome, Brian! The Folio edition of The Shining is a really nice book. Good pickup.

    The Hyperion Cantos letter AA is finally complete. Half-witted reviews of books 3 and 4 and suites of pictures to be posted eventually.

    Closing this loop has me in a melancholy frame of mind, as if part of my collector's heart has finally run its course and no longer burns. But even if that's the case, what a prize at the end:

    While out making my first purchase of a comic book since I'd guess early Jr. High, I went ahead and picked up these. Since we live in a cashless society (ok, I choose to live in a cashless society ), had to make at least a $10 purchase at the local mom and pop before I could use my debt card. Not sure at this point if I'll pursue trying to finish out this collection but also think it would be a fun, casual side project when the book collecting gets slow or waiting on preorders. Martin, if you're well versed in Locke & Key as a fan, I may call upon you for advice and guidance from time to time.

    Primary covers I believe for Locke & Key Clockworks Issues #3, #4, and #5.

    Feel free to ask questions about Locke & Key. This is a great story and should be read in sequence.

    Thanks, Martin. I'll definitely read it that way then.

    They were a worthy goal. And truly look stunning.
