    Not purchased - received for my birthday!

    This book, one of the most ambitious projects I've ever heard of around this genre, attempts to catalog ALL English language anthologies of horror, occult, weird, supernatural and fantasy, in history up until 1995. Complete insanity in its awesomeness:

    This book, a leather-bound connoisseur's guide to Scotch written by a world authority on the subject, should expand my knowledge of my favorite whisky a great deal. I've taken today and tomorrow off work, which means I might get into some of the finer points of this exploration today

    Interesting book on scotch. I'd be curious to know how they rate many of the Hiram Walker's brands, as my Dad retired from there, seeing as the world HQ for Hiram Walker's (Canadian Club) was (and still may be ) located in my wonderful city.

    Sorry, checked but didn't see any Canadian Club listed. I think CC is generally a blended whisky whereas the book mainly details single malts - it's been ages since I've tried it. More recently from Canada I've tried a few of the Crown Royal blends, but in general find it too smooth (if you can believe it). I haven't tried their Crown Royal Reserve which I hear is fantastic.

    I bet there are some beautiful CC aged blends I'm not aware of. If you hear of something that's to die for but relatively unknown please drop me a line. Nothing quite beats insider, professional info!!!

    Crown Royal was/is a competitor with CC (Hiram Walker & Sons). When my Dad worked there (1970-2000, retired at 50, 30 years and out), it was the place to be, one of our city's biggest employers, along with Chrysler, Ford, GM. I'm not a scotch/whisky person, but I used to get tons of CC pencils, coasters, you name it. Even had lamps made out of these huge CC bottles, which used to have a hand pump on top.

    And this was waiting for me when I got home from work. A Mountain Walked S.T. Joshi, "This new collection of fiction assembles a handful of reprints and over a dozen new stories inspired by H.P. Lovecraft and his Cthulhu Mythos. Authors include T.E.D. Klein, Caitlín R. Kiernan, Gemma Files, Lois Gresh, Thomas Ligotti, Patrick McGrath, and many others. Loaded." Honestly, if you like Lovecraft, a steal, what a book. MDH

    Been a while since I posted something. I missed out on the original CD pre-order for this, so I placed an order through Amazon months ago. I honestly never expected to receive it, but it showed up yesterday.

    When you check the product page, Amazon shows it as "temporarily out of stock" as opposed to being on pre-order. They probably think the release date came and went, so when stock arrived their warehouse shipped out the copies they received instead of holding them for the current release date.

    I honestly thought I'd never receive it, and be forced to pay secondary market prices or, if I was lucky, receive it later than everyone else like when I pre-ordered Relic from them. Now it looks like I got a copy that accidentally made it out into the wild a bit early. I imagine the CD orders will start showing up soon. Amazon couldn't have received their stock that early.

    My latest book that I purchased arrived in the mail Saturday. Thanks to Camelot Books I was able to find a fairly priced copy of Ronald Kelly's Hindsight published by Thunderstorm

    I too received my copy of Ender's Game today.

    Slight disappointment with my copy though - it looks like some of the glue from the slipcase leaked onto the top portion of the pages so they won't open because of the glue.

    I would just email Jerad with pics right away. His customer service is excellent - I'm sure he'll make you happy.
