    Books 'About' are always hit and miss for me. I was hoping this one would be a hit because of the importance of the subject matter in my reading life. I hope it gets better.

    I'm hoping it will also. I have it on order with Camelot.

    I thought I had replied already...I guess my memory is starting to be impacted by age.

    Nice additions to collection. I had forgotten how cool getting the ARCs can be. I enjoyed those the couple of times I participated. I felt comfortable reading the books, no worries about messing them up, and they are neat items to have in the collection.

    I resemble that remark.

    I really love the ARCs but will probably order fewer of them. It appears CD is taking a different approach as the price has been increased the last couple of packs. I bought this one but came close to skipping and then skipped the next one. Just can't justify the price for paperback copies.

    It has got better. The interviews about the mini series are really insightful. The book has done a nice turn around.

    Way behind on posting to this thread. At some point I will have to try to figure out what I skipped and get some photos up.

    Here are a couple of recent additions:

    First up -
    This Dark Chest of Wonders 40 Years of Stephen King's The Stand by Andy Burns:
    The Stand is so great I a, looking forward to this one.

    And
    The Best of Scream Factory Edited by Peter Enfantino, Robert Morrish and John Scoleri:
    I have to be honest I was never exposed to The Scream Factory but am interested in any analysis of horror.
    I am really glad I bought this one as it is a tremendous edition. The photos do not do it justice.

    This one gives some idea of the size of this book:

    Nice adds. I could not believe how heavy The Best of The Scream Factory was. I actually though that I was receiving more then one book when my copy arrived.

    It is a good read. I wanted more out of it but that was probably more about my expectations than the content of the book. I can't even say what more I wanted but it is The Stand!
