    Received two shipments from Cemetery Dance this week.

    First up is the Cemetery Dance Magazine Index (Issues 1 to 75):
    This book is exactly as the title suggests, an index. There is a one page introduction regarding how the book came to be and then two indexed sections. 1. Index by Issue
    2. Index by Contributor

    I started buying this magazine at issue 33 and still have most of them. I actually returned some to CD because they did not have a complete set. I have bought earlier issues occasionally when some content got my attention. This allows me to review the issues for content I am interested in. I am certain this book will cost me money!

    This next one was ordered from Cemetery Dance in January of 2015. It was from another publisher. Cemetery Dance was having a 50% off sale and I was interested in seeing what this publisher was doing. Since then this publisher has had many well chronicled issues and at one point I decided to cancel the order. Dan mentioned then that they actually had the book but were waiting for the tray case. With that I chose not to cancel. The fine folks at Cemetery finally gave up on waiting for the case and sent the book. It contains a note that they will send the tray case when they receive it. I have no reason to believe the publisher will ever produce the tray case but with the price I paid I am fine with that. The book is actually very nice and will be reminder of what could have been if the publisher had been able to deliver on his promises.

    The Ghosts of Benevolence by Mark Randolph Waters:

    Nice additions! That index guide looks interesting...I’ll have to keep an eye out for another. I have every issue that they have published except for two, but it would still be nice to have this index, if for no other reason than just a reminder of all the great fiction and articles they’ve published over the last 30 years.

    I forgot about the CD Index. Looks good - and will probably also cost me money!

    The Magazine index is available from CD and is a very reasonable price. That is until I begin buying back issues!

    Not sure if a lot of people will buy this one but I am sure glad they produced it.

    I recently spied this magazine while browsing Barnes and Noble:

    The Complete Guide to Stephen King -
    It has some interesting content. Have not read the whole thing yet but I do have one issue. It lists the top 20 King movie adaptations and the person who wrote it seems to think only horror movies count. Shawshank, Green Mile and Stand by Me do not make the top 20.

    A Little Red Book of Requests by Josh Malerman:

    This edition in the Little book series contains previously unpublished stories so I was really looking forward to it. The only thing I have read from Malerman previously was Bird Box. I am afraid these stories left me with the same feeling as that novel. Each story was a decent read but just did not satisfy me fully. I am not even sure how to describe it. I enjoyed the stories and did not feel like they were left incomplete. I just felt that the story being told could have been better. Overall I liked it but I did not love it.

    There is talk on the internet, therefore it must be true, that Borderlands switched printers for this book after the issues that delayed the last book. In comparing the books this one is of a better quality.

    Although I do belong to Brian James Freeman's Patreon I do not subscribe at a level that would provide me with his annual book. I did find one on eBay though. Happy to add this to my collection:
    P1380465.jpg
    It is a signed edition but I forgot to photo the limitation page. I will try and remember to add a photo of that in the future. It is limited to 55 copies and this is 52.

    I have also been looking to complete my King trade collection. One of the books I was missing was the 1st/1st of It. This is a book I bought on day of issue at Costco but it has been missing for many years. I have to assume I loaned it out and never got it back. I used to loan out my King 1st editions but when On Writing came back damaged I stopped that practice. I have looked for a reasonably priced replacement for quite some time and in general they have been below my standards or over priced. Especially after the new movie came out. I recently saw one on eBay that was in very good condition and was only slightly over the price I was interested in paying. I threw out an offer and it was accepted. So It has returned to it's rightful place on my King shelves.

    I also spotted a shockingly low priced copy of Shivers I on eBay. I chose not to partake in these until they released the first hardbound edition. I have debated going back and completing the set but the early editions are always over priced. This will probably not send me on a quest to complete the set but if the others pop for great prices I will may grab them as well.

    Nice adds. I have all the books in the Shivers series. One of my favorite anthology series . Followed closely by Crystal Lake publications Tales from the Lake series. Congratulations on finding a very nice replacement first edition of IT.

    A few recent additions.

    Staring with the signed 1st Cari Mora.

    A couple of comments regarding the edition were that it was a real nice book for a trade edition and that the font makes it like a large print book. I agree that it is a notch above a standard trade edition are the end papers. Beyond the end paper art it just feels like a trade edition to me. The font is definitely on the larger end. The actual story is a quick read and they may have wanted to get the page count up. I was fortunate enough to get the Owl Remarque.
