    Picked up the Fritz Leiber titles from Centipede Press. Great as always. Just waiting for the Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser set.

    Nice. I thought long and hard about the MotWT collection, but ended up passing on it as I had nearly all the stories in my Midnight House volumes. Seeing those pics sure makes me question my decision...man, but that set looks gorgeous. Congrats on having the wisdom I lacked.

    Congrats Mike. Love it! I passed on them, too much all at once for me, but I really hope to get the Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser collection.

    Those are gorgeous, my man. Looks like they ought to be framed.

    I know that feeling all too well! I was hoping to be able to pick up that MotWT volume, but, alas, the funds were not there at the time. Beautiful books, though! Congratulations on the acquisition.

    ^^^ Oh, we're posting things other than books, are we?

    Gotta get in on that fun...here's something I picked up a couple weeks ago, a JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) SARB017 Alpinist:

    (stock Internet photo, but mine looks identical, stainless bracelet and all...except my compass is straight. )

    I really do need to start posting my new book acquisitions. Will try to start that up soon.

    Nice watch! I realized I don't wear most of my watches, so I'm going to start selling them off on Timezone. If I ever get around to it, that is.

    I have to be careful...I know I could easily fall into a watch enthusiast, filling my time lusting after beautiful timepieces, getting deeply involved in the nuances and intricacies of their mechanisms and workings, the brands, etc., and haunting forum boards like TimeZone and Watchuseek, et al. That Alpinist was my first foray into mid-range costs...my daily wear is a Seiko Orange Monster, and it and everything else I have is $200 or less. I'm trying to keep a lid on my watch lust and not get suddenly carried away, but I'm already planning a SARB033 down the road...and a blue-faced chronometer would be nice...and maybe a Tissot or Hamilton since no collection is complete without a Swiss piece, and...and...

    My current modest collection:

    (Yes, I really like orange.)

    Yea, my attempt at being cute reference my pic LOL. Although I never played with Legos as a kid; for some reason I really enjoying playing these dumb games. I catch a lot of grief about it but, WTH right?!

    Nice timepieces, Ron! I can't trust myself to wear a good watch. I'm always banging it up against something or other. Hence my Wal-Mart specials that I wear .

    No picture yet - but on Tuesday I received my copy of Rambo from Gauntlet/Borderlands. Elected not for the slipcase this time.

    It looks very similar in quality and bonus features to First Blood.

    M only problem is that they didn't honor my request to match numbers. It's kind of upsetting but I'm not sure there's much that can be done, especially since the book came shrinkwrapped, there wouldn't be an easy way to know what number it was.

    Too bad about the numbering...hope Barry can get you squared away.

    Yesterday I received my inscribed copy of Paul Tremblay's new one. The day before brought my signed and numbered copy of Joe Hill's THE FIREMAN from Goldsboro.

    I fired off an email to Gauntlet. Fingers crossed something can be done.

    Speaking of Paul Yremblay - I finally read Headful of Ghosts the other day. It freaked me out a bit, ok, more than a bit. It made me uncomfortable in a way that I haven't felt since the first parts of House of Leaves.

    Yep, HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS was an incredible work, and many -- including me -- had the same reaction as you, a frisson of fear that few of us who have been reading this scary stuff for decades rarely get anymore. And along with that organic reaction was an appreciation of just a wonderfully written and polished piece of fiction. His new one is supposed to be just as good or, minimally, close to it...while I'm a bit skeptical, I'm anxious to find out for myself if that's the case.

    I'm hearing several reports of them trickling into the US so hopefully so. Mail has still yet to run today so there's still hope of this week.

    Brian, I'm surprised that will all the trouble I had with mine that it arrived so much sooner than yours.
