    I do not consider it a set related to story, but in theme and author. I also fully understand the constraints placed on the small publisher from the large publishers. Love the books they just did not meet my expectations. That does not mean my expectations were realistic.

    No surprise I am sure but the book exceeds the movie, and it is a great movie!

    Really like the signature page for wwz. I was talking about the Dragon tattoo books or whatever they are called as the books I have not read. I did read wwz and did not care for it. Never read zombie survival guide
    Can't wait to see what you have to add to your collection.

    I really enjoyed World War Z but can see why many people do not as it is a series of stories about the zombie apocalypse rather than a novel. I hve not read the Dragon Tattoo series yet either but have heard great things about it and could not pass up the set when I found it.

    I hadn't realized some of the contracts would have size constraints. I do agree it would have been cool to have both Brooks books the same size. To be honest though, I received Survival Guide first, and was impressed overall. So I was surprised when WWZ arrived and it was oversized. Needless to say, I had no complaints.

    I'm not saying it did, I've never actually seen the contract. I do know that sometimes contracts have weird things in them though, such as no artwork, and things along those lines. I would typically say that price of the book, print run, and what we perceive as to how well we think it will sell are usually the major contributing factors to what size we decide to make a book.

    Makes sense. Also I imagine Zombie Survival Guide had a lot more designing to go with it, since it's littered with pictures, at least when compared to WWZ. So I figure it would be a more expensive book if it had been oversized as well, and personally I'd rather have WWZ in the larger format than both in the smaller. Actually it hardly matters to me at all

    Was able to pick up a few titles I have long coveted recently:

    First up is Rick Hautala's The Wildman Lettered:
    P1320306.jpgP1320307.jpgP1320308.jpgP1320309.jpgP1320310.jpg

    This was the first and only complete lettered edition to be released by the short lived Full Moon Press. It is in a wood case, with a soft brown leather lining, silver gilded pages, satin ribbon marker, full color interior art, bound in blue leather and each lettered also has an Alex McVey remarque.

    Adding the lettered completes my Wildman collection adding to my ARC and inscribed Limited:

    I also finally added a Secretary of Dreams Volume II ARC. This one is also remarqued by Glenn Chadbourne.

    This completes my Secretary of Dreams set as I am unwilling to spend the money the lettered editions sell for. I have ARC's, Gift Editions and Limited Editions of Volumes I and II.

    I also added the first 'The Princess and Mr. Whiffle' story 'The thing beneath the bed'. This one is a fourth printing signed trade edition and now goes with my limited of 'The Deep Dark Below'.

    The lettered 'The Wildman' is fantastic.

    The traycase is perfect for the story! I wish Full Moon Press had been able to survive.
