    Ok! It's not a book, but it is my latest purchase! A Roto-tiller. Craiglist is great if you can avoid the serial killers, Black Widows and Rapist. The deals are almost always worth the risk.

    Hmmmm... and what, pray tell, are you loosening all that soil for? More craigslist "deals"?

    Well, here is my latest book purchase. Masters of the Weird Tale: Carl Jacobi Centipede Press. Look at the size of that Tome, 800 pages, Craftsmanship, Scholarship and Art, all rolled into one volume. I included the other book just for scale!! My gosh, they put out a tremendous product and are rescuing many lesser known, talented authors from obscurity.

    I also just got a nice new Centipede Press book, though not nearly as epic as yours. Just about to post it my collection thread. Great add, Mike!

    It must the season for posting Centipede Press books, as I will be adding a new entry to my collection thread as well, as soon as I have taken the photographs...

    Nice, looking forward to seeing it! I got another on the way too.
    Anyone remember the website that made custom slip and tray cases? Was thinking of investing in one or two if the price is right.

    Dick Olson makes all those wood slipcases/traycases that collectors get wet over.

    Here's his site:

    I'd love to have one of his cases, but being retired and on a more or less fixed income, I just can't afford them.

    Same here, John. I had saved the money for one of his cases a few years ago, but he was busy with all the cases for The Shining and 'Salem's Lot that were being sold and the idea I had never materialized. Maybe at a later date...

    That was definitely the one I was think of. I wonder is there any other places that sell custom slip and tray cases.

    Today I purchased Fire by Alan Rodgers and Survivor by J. F. Gonzalez off Abebooks - will take pics and add to my collection once they arrive.

    Yes, I'm cheap!

    Buying on Abebooks doesn't guarantee cheapness, there are a lot of overpriced items on there and the uninformed can easily be taken to the cleaners.

    I know what you mean - for used paperbacks of harder to find titles though - it's usually a pretty good deal - a couple $ per book plus minimal, or free shipping.

    That's true. Good place to find the hard to find. I like to try to contact the seller directly if they have a website of their own and try to get a lower price than listed on Abe. Something I learned recently is that they (the sellers) are charged to list their items and then again through a commission of each sale. I saved $50 recently on a s/l that I got by doing the sale through their website.

    Thanks for pointing that out - I may look into that.

    I almost never pay the listed price of a book on ABE. I always make contact with the seller to work out a deal. I got one item--King's signed contest manuscript of "The Two Dead Girls" for a 35% discount from the listed price.
