    You never know where you'll find the next one...
    Oh boy- look out! Powers is great- and he has some of the most desirable editions out there... Just beautiful books.

    Can anyone recommend a nice edition of Last Call, particularly one that might be had on the cheap in the secondary market (not looking for rare/lettered, maybe just something that is cool but won't break the bank)?

    Good to know as I have every one of their limited editions for Powers - hopefully it won’t break the bank

    I don't have a copy of Last Call for you but I did get an extra copy of Medusa's Web S/L in a grab bag. If you're interested I could give you a great deal on that.

    That is one of the better Powers limited's, and highly recommended. Extremely nice, oversized, J.K. Potter Illustrated, great interior design, slipcased, Subpress production. A must have.

    Camelot has pretty good prices on a lot of powers limited - pretty close to original on most...but no copies of last call:

    Ruling out both Charnel House editions as too costly (But, man, are they both incredible), I highly recommend Subterranean's J.K. Potter illustrated edition. They were easily had fairly cheap for years, but am only seeing them at around $75 right now. If you're patient, you may snag one at $60- I'd grab it. It's really nice. Truthfully, the Morrow first edition is a nice, solid trade that can be had for under $20 all day long.

    Powers is signing in San Diego on November 4th:

    http://www.mystgalaxy.com/event/tim-...igns-san-diego

    Anyone going? I'd love to get an inscribed book and would compensate for time and effort. I know I could order one direct from the website but I'm not sure how much care the store puts into packing.

    Mysterious Galaxy is great! I buy from them all the time. You can request personalization/inscriptions and they will do their best. The books are always wrapped and shipped in a box. Of course, you can always put that in the request box as well.

    I'm super curious about this! I've been collecting the last few Tim Powers books from Charnel House (and like pretty much everyone in this thread one of my most desired books is a lettered Last Call) but I've never sprung for a lettered. Something I've "never seen or touched before" may be too intriguing to pass up...

    I ended up receiving one of these (used Morrow hardcover) for Christmas, can't wait to read it (hope to get to it in the first half of 2018 ).

    Just got the email that this title is available for pre-order.

    The numbered is limited to 124 copies and is "Bound in Japanese “Snow Dust” silk silver foiled label imbedded in the front board" ($300) LINK

    The lettered is "Bound in three quarter crimson Morocco leather over Japanese “Snow Dust” silk" ($1000) LINK

    Not sure if this counts as a "binding you have never seen or touched before" but I'm sure it'll be a pretty book. And big, too: 7" x 11" and 476 pages, quite larger than the last couple of Tim Powers books that Joe has put out.
    Looking for the following Centipede Press books:
    • Any book with limitation number #52
    • Chimera II (any #)
    • Don Brautigam Portfolio with Brautigam & Koontz signatures (any #)
    • Deluxe editions
    • ARCs/Proofs

    Only 125 made. Maybe that's why. I missed out on getting one.

    Charnel House is doing the limited edition of Alternate Routes. It's also available through Camelot. I have my on layaway.

    I have to admit the cover art for the trade edition seems a little too modern urban fantasy-ish. I still ordered an inscribed copy.

    I have a copy from Camelot too. Was that the inscribed copy you mentioned or did you order another copy of the trade inscribed? If so from where?
