    I'll have to take pictures later, but my signed copy of Ten Word Tragedies from PS Publishing arrived today. It is absolutely beautiful!

    It also baffles me that there are STILL copies available. It features original stories (and is signed by) a ton of great writers, including Josh Malerman and Paul Tremblay! Not to mention that Frank Turner also signed it (he's the punk/folk musician who inspired the collection).

    I am one of those who passed. I love the concept and it is a great price. If I remember correctly PS never said who would be signing the signed edition. I assumed it was just the editors. Who all signed it?

    It looked to be all of the contributors (two full pages of signatures). The ones that I stood out to me as I was glancing it over were Armstrong, Littlewood, Koryta, Turner, Tremblay, and Malerman (the last two of whom I had completely forgotten had contributed).

    But after a twelve hour day, I didn't have the energy to take photos. Definitely tomorrow though!

    I would love to see photos. You are making me re-think my passing on this one.

    Cool looking book. Also it made me look up Frank Turner and listen to some of his music. Never heard of him before.

    I also passed...one, had no idea who Frank Turner was; two, since it was based on his work I thought the stories would be about music (a mash-up I don’t care for); three, the title intimates the stories are only ten words long, so flash fiction...? Now that I’ve taken the time to actually read the synopsis rather than make assumptions, I see the latter two are untrue, and it actually sounds rather good. I may rethink this one.

    Thank you for sharing the info on the book. You did just cost me some money though. I ordered one today.

    Glad to hear! For the price that it is, I can't recommend it enough. ;-)

    Pete is good to deal with. Just know you will not get a shipping notice the book will just arrive. And if you ever order one of his grab bags it will actually arrive in a bag!

    The same also applies to when you buy books from him in bulk. It's always a pleasure to see one of those Royal Mail currier bags on the stoop!

    The first time I saw a bag of books sitting on my front porch I remember thinking "This guy takes the term grab bag seriously!". At this point Pete should be giving you a commission on Ten Word Tragedies.
