For those not In the Know, Richard is of course his real name and Kelly is his daughter's name...hence the penname Richard Kelly.

    I remember when Kelly worked at Cemetery Dance.

    ^ Interesting. I'd had no idea. What did she do there?

    Just noticed that my copy of BETTER WEIRD Isn't signed by Joe Lansdale. Thought that was kind of odd, since Joe typically signs everything put in front of him. Same with Brian Keene. I know these yearbook- like signature pages often have missing sigs, but thought the omission of those two was a bit odd and disappointing.

    Well, thanks to a timely stop at our local antique mall and some lengthy negotiations, I find myself the owner of a Collection of 14 folk art Halloween paintings by local artist Michael Lee Cook. Mike passed away last year, unfortunately Mike’s wife is having to part with a lot of his collection. My wife and I initially purchased these 3 paintings and decided we would try to purchase the entire “13” series of painting, plus a couple of others that were on display. Honestly, I never thought we could afford it, buying the first 3 set us back a bit, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. We ended up with a great deal for several reasons I think, Mike’s wife liked the idea of collection staying intact, Halloween is fast upon us and she didn’t want to try to hold them till next year and finally, the ugly truth was she needed the money. We worked out a price we could both work with and I pick the other 11 paintings up Tuesday. Most of the paintings are framed acrylic on canvas, size 14x18, or larger. We were really happy we could keep the collection together and help out Mike’s wife. I’ll post the rest of the paintings once we get them home.

    What? "charming"? I think so, but it's limited to twice per user account.

    Sorry, just noticed this. I think she did a little of everything. When I asked questions she was often the one to respond and at one point they had a photo of her on the website with her jeep loaded with packages of books to drive them to the post office. If I remember correctly she left CD when she got a job at a New York publisher.

    Very interesting. Thanks for the info!

    Andrew great picks, the art looks very Gilliam-esque to me. Never heard of the book or author, but it looks interesting.

    Beautiful book, mh...as always, Centipede puts out a impressive production. I passed on it as 1). I'd read the book before, and 2). Carroll's is a fantastical taste that I've tried to acquire and just can't get there, especially in long form (I have his Sub Press collection and plan to hold on to it).

    McCammon's a trade edition, the Schow is a signed/#d edition. Both bought via the recent 50% off sale at Sub Press.

    Been a while since I've had anything to post here. Seems like I'm just pre-ordering stuff these days. SST's illustrated edition of Paradise Sky arrived courtesy of Camelot last week. I just now got around to taking some pictures.



















    This is the first SST book I've purchased, and I'm really happy with it. The quality is great. I really like the illustrated boards and end papers. The paper is nice and allows the art reproduction is well done. When I placed my pre-order, the price was $75, but the book wound up being twenty dollars cheaper. I think it would have been worth the original price easy, but I'm not complaining! Just an overall great presentation for this newer Lansdale novel. Definitely a fine addition to my ever growing Lansdale shelf.

    I've been toying with the idea of buying this one to replace my signed trade first hardcover edition. Appreciate the photos. Looks as good as I had thought. Still not sure if I'm going to pull the trigger, but this does make the decision harder.

    It's a really nice edition. I kept both because apparently I need both.

    $75 was a decent price for it (which is what I paid,) but $50 is a bargain.
