    I haven't seen Christine for a while and had forgotten the power of that image until I saw it again in this magazine. It is an iconic image.

    Agreed. Show that photo to folks within a certain age group and they'll know what it is right away, King fan or no. Maybe even some younger folks as well.

    Upon further review it turns out I have two duplicates out of my dinged grab bag. The one I did not have makes the purchase worth it.

    The two that I already have are Revenant by Boll Pronzini and Small World by Tabitha King.

    Both of these are in mint condition but are missing the signature/limitation page. As I already have the signed/limited they will go to Powell's for trade.

    The book that makes this purchase worth it was a copy of The Fall by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan.

    I already have a copy of book one The Strain that is also missing it's signature sheet:

    With the addition of The Fall I realized that I now have all but one book published by Lonely Road (in some form.)

    The book I do not have is The Exorcist. I took a family photo but I am unsure where my copy of The Arthur Darknell Double is.

    That's a sweet collection--Lonely Road makes great stuff. I've got a couple of their books and am looking forward to another, which will be my first lettered edition from them.

    Thanks. I am currently very puzzled about where I put the Darknell Double book.

    I like both the penguins and the books as well. The only Lonely Roads book I have is The Exorcist (thanks, CD grab bag!), but I would like to get my hands on more. The Arthur Darknell double and The Vampyricon are high on my list.

    I’ve always admired the Arthur Darknell double and wish I would’ve picked that up when it came out.

    See that is what I get for skipping some grab bags. The Exorcist is the only one I need. Both The Arthur Darknell double and The Vampyricon are worth acquiring!

    It is a really nice edition, now to figure out where I put it.
