    I typed out a reply, then noticed you'd found the info so I deleted it.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    The one in the picture is 3rd state and the other two copies I have are 2nd state. Was hoping I had gotten lucky and one of the other two was a 1st state, but looks like Iím still on the hunt. Not sure it matters that much to me, at least for now. Just happy to have a NF/NF copy of any of them.

    I am a little confused on what book this is referring too.

    OK. I am guessing it's your EOTD book. It does look great. Mine is pretty good I think. I haven't looked at it in a while.

    Youíre right, Mike. My bad, I forgot to quote the post I was replying to. Thanks! Itís a pretty neat dust jacket I think, but every one I could find had at least one defect I couldnít overlook. Didnít think Iíd ever get one in such good shape. Now Iíve got to somehow manage to sell three copies that no one will want.

    He's talking about Eyes of the Dragon. There are 3 printer variants. So, not really 'states' - at least not ordered ones (i.e. 1st, 2nd, etc which signifies one was before the other) as they were all released simultaneously.
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Got you Stroppy. I have one. I am pretty sure it's a 1\1 but I don't know if it's in as great shape as the one in the picture. It may have some fringing on the top of the DJ but I am happy with it. Now I have to look and see what state it is. I looked in first ed section and saw what you meant by three variant. Now I need to see what variant it is. I don't think I will go as crazy to try and find the other two. Having one that it is really nice shape is enough for me.

    Hereís my Charles L. Grant collection. Peripheral recommended this author on Facebook a few months ago, and, although I hadnít read anything by him yet, I started collecting. Thatís probably something only a collector could understandó buying pricey editions of books you havenít even read, that is. Since then I have read a bunch of his short stories and all I can say is Iím glad Iíve already made a dent in this collection.

    The whole shebang:

    Awesome Grant collection, Adam. You assembled that quickly. Such a unique voice in the horror cannon, one of the best. Very happy to have turned you onto him...

    I'll Grant you, those are nice looking books.

    BTW - I don't collect Grant books, but I do collect his wife's, Kathyrn Ptacek, who unfortunately doesn't seem to write much any more.

    Hey Steve, what's Kathy like as a writer? Anything like Grant? (Sorry to hijack your thread with some Kathy discussion, Adam).

    I've never read much by Grant, so I can't say. As for Ptacek, I like her style, which can go from horror to erotic to fantasy. It's been a while since I've read anything by her. She's also written under pseudonyms, including some Romance novels, which are the only books of this type I've ever read.
