    The Essential Ronald Kelly Collection

    Beginning in September of 2011, Thunderstorm Books will publish the Essential Ronald Kelly Collection. This accumilative set will include all 8 of the original Zebra novels published between 1990 and 1996. Each edition will boast full-color covers by Alex McVey, a brand-new bonus novella or extra-long short story linked to characters and locations in the original novel, and a "Writing of" feature on how I came up with the idea for the novel and the creative process behind it. The books will also feature spines which -- set side-by-side -- form a panoramic piece of Alex McVey artwork. All the books in the Essential Collection will be a "Supercell" series and will be of the same size and high-quality production values of the Black Voltage titles.

    Book One of the Essentials will be:

    Book Two of the Essentials will be:

    Love the idea of the spine art, especially since the spine of ATB did not have the title on in. Will a slipcase be made to house them, to show it off, Ron?

    No plans for a slipcase yet, Squire. It would be a whopper of one. Each book will be pretty thick... at around 350 to 450 pages each.

    Hey, maybe you could convince them to make some Ronald Kelly bust bookends! How awesome (and egomaniacal) would that be!

    I've been wanting to check out Mr. Kelly's work. Now it looks like I will have plenty opportunity. Congratulations to you also, Mr. Kelly, for having this set done. From what I have read on these forums it seems like you are well overdue for this type of recognition.

    Well, at least you tried, that's what matters!

    of course you didn't, but lets just pretend that we try to control impulses to buy awesome books!

    And in case anybody is wondering, you will get matching numbers if you order direct from Thunderstorm Books--Paul just emailed me.

    Of course, I'm reading War & Peace right now, so they'll have to wait...
