    THE COMPLETE KANE

    BY KARL EDWARD WAGNER
    Judging by the responses on this, a lot of you are excited about the Kane books and stories. Tom Kidd, Matthew Jaffe, Scott Fischer, Brom, and this guy Boco that I showed some artwork to you last week, seem to be top picks. I’ll keep you posted on how this is going.
    Would anyone have old issues of Midnight Sun, Fantasy Newsletter, and Fantasy Crossroads that they would feel comfortable loaning out?
    And more news.
    FRITZ LEIBER
    A lot of requests have come in over the years regarding Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser by Fritz Leiber. Guess what? Hardcover rights are secure! Hooray! So the next question is now that I have it, what do you want to see? Right off the bat, it has to be individual books in a box set. Each book signed and numbered, there’s no way around that. An omnibus will be just too huge to hold. I was thinking 6 x 10 size, like my The Sheep Look Up — good size, not too large. And illustrations. Of course. The question is, who? Tim Kirk is the guy that springs to mind first for me. But what do you all think? People have strong opinions on this. I’d like to hear yours.

    can't wait!

    Haven't read his Kane books, but I'd be down for CP editions of Leiber's Fafhrd and Grey Mouser books. If i could afford them. Something tells me they'll be outta my reach financially.

    Oh hell, they're gonna break my bank, ha ha.

    Also I don't know the others on the list of artists but I love Brom's work, his work would be fantastic artistic accompaniment to the Kane stories.

    I won a King's Way trade edition of Scott Nicholson's The Skull Ring on eBay for cheap the other day and purchased Joe Hill's 20th Century Ghosts for the Kindle earlier today thanks to the Amazon daily deal

    I'll be honest, Love the short stories, the novels are ok. "Reflections on the Winter of My Soul'(?) My favorite werewolf story. Just full of action, irony, humor, pain, all the good stuff.

    Oh cool! For who are they raising money? Nice list there too, has some bigs names in the fantasy field. I am always impressed when authors and publishers get together to do this for fellow authors, like everyone raising money to help Tom Picirilli.

    I haven't read them all, but I do love that particular story too. I really liked Dark Crusade, though it's much shorter than Darkness Weaves.

    Yup truly amazing! KEW was a highly underrated master of fiction. I've been wanting to grab the Book of Kane for a while, just to have a nice HC collection, that may change with the Centipede release. I've had Murgunstrumm by Hugh B. Cave on my to read list for a while too, that's a beautiful hard cover you got there. My one question is; what is Raven's Eyrie?

    LOL! Audio Cassettes, read by Roger Zelazny. I've always wanted the Deluxe slipcased edition of the Grant. Haven't found it at the right price yet, but I will one day.

    Just got this today! A good cause and a fantastic book. It was great for all these authors and artists to rally around Rick Hautala's family after his tragic death. I know the CD staff was very supportive. The world is full of good people, who do good things. This project was a prime example. Two volumes, slip cased, signed by all the contributors and limited to 80 copies.

    Great purchase, Mike! That looks like an awesome anthology too given the stellar line up of famous names.

    How much did it cost if you don't mind me asking?
