    Very nice. There's no thumb on the cover of my jacket though. You must have a rare variant DJ!

    Thanks. I get obsessive about certain books and then I can't help myself. Originally I vowed only to collect King & Rice but that went out the window a long time ago. I need to win a book lottery or something.

    I got it on eBay. I just kept searching for it for a while and a nice one came up for min $30 bid and no one else bid on it, so I picked it up at the last minute.

    Was in B&N today to use my V-Day coupon. Got this for $14 (no sales tax in DE either!)

    DO you like the new UK Martin books? I bought GoT, and I think it is just OK. I liked the Barnes and Noble edition better, but I don't think they are making the rest of the series. Then Amazon had their 4-book special set which looked nice as well. I know everyone is capitalizing on the series success, but I'm afraid that all of the books won't get produced in the same way...eventually.

    I didn't get the B&N edition yet just for that reason. Although I had it in my hands yesterday. Very tempting. What makes it nicer to you?

    I want them to match and at least they are available thru book 5. I do like the look of them but they could have been nicer inside... maybe some illustrations, gilt edges, etc.

    The UK edition is basically just the book. The B&N edition has maps for the endpapers, a few interviews and Q&A for Martin, along with a preview of the comic book series. Plus I like the cover design and slipcase art. When I bough mine, with coupons, etc., it cost me $25. Much cheaper than the UK editions. I really hope B&N decided to issue more book once the next season starts on HBO

    Picked these up from eBay. Seller said they were in "perfect, like new" condition. They are only very good. That might be after they were shipped overseas with no protection except a bubble wrap envelope. Oh well.

    Nice! That Just After Sunset pamphlet is relatively scarce.

    I've had that problem more then once with E-bay book sellers. Many of them are not serious book lovers-collectors-sellers or whatever and have very little concept of the proper grading of books.

    Any chance to get more detailed pics of "The Hobbit"? I have several editions of this book, my UK 2nd edition being the crown, but yours looks very nicely done and you just can't have too many class editions of "The Hobbit" IMHO

    Well since I'm still waiting for my WTTKW S/L and artist editions, I'll post this for you George R.R. Martin fans... (sorry for the crappy iPhone pics)

    The original dust jacket that was supposed to be used for A Feast for Crows until Walmart made the publisher change the art. One of about 30 proofs, signed by the artist. Fully foiled and embossed, only missing the barcode/isbn info. Cool huh?
