    Thanks for the heads up! I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this auction - the lettered Tim Powers Charnel House books don't come up in the wild very often...

    Quick! Offer $100 and snag this deal. There's also another copy with a $120 BIN but I personally prefer this one because slipcase is darker (they're all unique).

    Friends and Powers collectors, tis a good day indeed; Subterranean Press just this morning announced a new Anubis Gates limited edition. The lettered is $500 and at this specific moment in time 0833 EST, it's still available. You know it's going to be a good one with that price tag. The numbered is somehow only $75. Yes, it's slipcased and has illustrations too.

    Additionally, Forced Perspectives is available for pre-order from Charnel House. It seems like someone's talked to Stefko because this edition has interior illustrations by Powers himself.

    It seems to be a sequel(?) novella to Anubis Gates, and the lettered is pre-order locked to ownership of Nobody's Home, another novella related to Anubis Gates. I'm not really a fan of $500 lettereds for novellas, but it's Powers, so what are you gonna do. When this comes out methinks it might be time for a re-read.

    I ordered the lettered because apparently I'm blind and didn't see that I had to own the Nobody's Home lettered to qualify. I emailed SP with an apology and said they can refund me and I'll toe the line with the rest when the pre-orders open to public.

    I'm glad to see Palumbo get more work. His paintings for the Centipede edition of The Anubis Gates and CD 'Salem's Lot were absolutely stellar.

    Are you getting the Charnel House edition of Forced Perspectives?

    Man ... what? Haha.

    I picked up a Powers lettered for $91 shipped on eBay today. It was The Drawing of the Dark from Hypatia. I threw a quick bid thinking there was no way I'd win, and then drove to work. I had the Please Pay Now email when I checked my email at work. I'm pretty happy with the price.

    I haven't kept up with the numbereds from Charnel House; I only have Last Call. For the lettered, hmmm, I guess not. When Alternate Routes was announced I was missing 3 CH lettereds, and since I was not a fan of the AR design combined with its price tag, I thought I might as well make it 4. I guess it'll become 5 now.

    Wait what, really? As in the book physically already exists? That's amazing! I love these "announcing a book but it's actually already ready to ship" things.

    That is a FANTASTIC deal, congratulations! I don't have one myself; they don't come up often at all.

    Quick question, does Where They Are Hid have an actual limitation/signature page?

    I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on this:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tim-Powers-...cAAOSwTRZePLKg

    I'm not sure if the signature under the drawing in the second picture is also the signature page and the books aren't numbered, or if the signature page is in the back.

    Update: the seller didn't know the signature page was in the back. The listing is *cough* no longer available.

    At first I read that as the seller immediately delisted it upon realization, but on second thought, it seems you got it. Congrats!

    Indeed it is. Now I'm hoping the seller has sent books properly before.

    I'm slowly crossing the Charnel House Powers limiteds off the list. I saved the best/financially worst for last.

    I think that the prettiest Charnel House books are the Tim Powers books, and I think the prettiest Tim Powers books are the Charnel House editions (with the exception of the utterly fabulous Centipede Press Anubis Gates), and I wish you the best of luck!

    I'm sure you've seen all this, but Camelot has a few nicely priced ones (Appointment on Sunset, especially) and they have the only numbered Hide Me Among The Graves that I've seen out in the wild in a long time, though it's pricey at $1000. I think it's also the rarest CH Powers numbered though, or at least one I haven't seen very many times. The other is Deliver Us From Evil, and after not seeing any for years, there's been one on eBay for awhile. Of course it's been there for awhile because it's several hundred dollars overpriced (or maybe less these days, I truly haven't seen any others available in years).

    FWIW my favorite Charnel House numbered Tim Powers books are Hide Me Among The Graves, Appointment on Sunset (the toe tag was a really neat idea), and then either Collected Stories or The Stress of Her Regard. Actually I think The Stress of Her Regard wins just because it was his first book and he dyed the denim himself in his bathtub

    Can't wait to hear as you collect more of them!

    I waited too long to pull the trigger on Collected Stories so here I am, in this bleak Collected Stories-less existence, checking eBay no less (fewer?) times a day for new Powers listings in hopes of finding one.

    I'll be swinging by my PO box across the border next month. I should be picking up three Powers books and then I'll do a proper collection update. I don't think I've posted the flagship of the collection yet. It's not exactly the pinnacle of book architecture but it is rather scarce and also nice to look at. I'm not being secretive at all, there's no big reveal - it's the Fault Lines lettered set.

    Btw subpress has preorder up today for their newest dark fantasy vol 3 - included is a separate signed HC book from powers:

    The limited edition of this superb anthology comes with a very special signed bonus hardcover: Always Going On by Tim Powers. A 14,000 word autobiographical essay of immense charm, it offers a highly personal glimpse into the mind, memories, and personal esthetics of one of modern fantasy’s most durable—and original—artists. Always Going On is both a gift to Powers’ many readers, and an invaluable supplement to an extraordinary body of work.

    Limited: 250 signed numbered copies, in slipcase, with exclusive Tim Powers volume, Always Going On
