    Beautiful looking books.

    I've read BILLION YEAR SPREE, but not TRILLION YEAR SPREE.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    The signed limited editions of the Matthew Corbett series by Robert McCammon, from River City and Subterranean Press:











    I don't have a matching set from SubPress. If anyone has #226 of any of the volumes, I am willing to swap + cash. PM if you can help.

    The other volumes are also very nice - the oversized Sean Song and Boys World are top notch - but for me, the Corbetts are something special.

    I saw your FB post about the recent McCammons you bought from Siep. Congratulations, man. You're off to a great start!
    I’m not sure if our slipcases are the same but even if not, I know what you mean. They’re the classiest looking items on the entire shelf.

    Thanks for your encouragement. They’re the first SubPress books I’ve owned and it’s like a whole new world of collecting opened up. I hear finding my missing number for Mister Slaughter is somewhat of a pipe dream but I’m looking forward to the hunt.

    Man you’ve got an amazing non-King collection. There are books here I didn’t even know I wanted haha.

    Adam, check out the second photo in the post right above yours. Those are my McCammon S/L slipcases.

    Wow, thanks very much! I still have a few interesting things to post.

    I like them both too. I haven't yet found a UK S/L of Everville from when it was first published. I'm hoping to find something that matches the traycased TGaSS, but no luck yet. The Gauntlet Press editions are quite cool though.

    These are the best examples of limiteds - from binding to slipcase. They look as good as some of the lettered editions out there. I hope Cemetery Dance will keep the design - not sure if its possible at all.

    Agreed, Yegor. Quality and beauty in every respect.

    ETA: and I must say that Victor Chong's illustrations capture the mood of the series exactly - especially his cover art. If CD are publishing the remainder of the series, it would be a real shame - to say the least - if they approached a different artist for the remaining volumes.

    Thanks! I have to agree - the consistency of design elements was one of the main reasons I acquired this set, even though the series had already been cancelled. There a lots of little details to appreciate: for example, the printing on the covers and slipcase, and the bookmark ribbon colour, match the endpaper colour scheme for each volume.

    Unfortunately, this is not *quite* a matching set. All volumes are #20 - *except* volume 3, which is #21. This was a publisher error - they sent the original owner the wrong number, and he didn't bother to correct it. Needless to say, I've very interested in finding #20 of volume 3!

    Thanks, peri. The Terror is very nice indeed, although the traycase marks or scuffs if you look at it twice. But the book is one of SubPress's best, in my opinion.

    Thanks! I like Simmons a lot. These are among his best non-SF works.

    (I have two more lettered Simmons on the way, which I will post when I get them).

    Wow - super jealous! So cool because I haven"t even seen photos of a few ( including Terror) ever anywhere online. Thank you for sharing.
    I just last month finally purchased The Summer Of Night lettered but looks like I have a lot more to find Please let me know if you ever get any tips as to sellers.

    Yegor, you've posted many pics of editions I've never seen before, so I'm glad I can return the favour. I don't have any scoop on sellers, but if I hear of any lettered editions for sale, I'll certainly send them your way.

    My lettered collection is still very modest - I'm focusing almost exclusively on McCammon and Simmons SubPress editions, and I'm far from complete, as you can see. My two Grail of Grails at the moment are Drood (Simmons) and Mister Slaughter (McCammon). Although if a Zafon set ever materializes I will jump at it.

    Thanks, Adam! The Terror is one of my favourite Simmons novels, so I feel very fortunate to have found it. Still looking for a lettered Drood, though.

    Some uncommon or signed Stephen Donaldson books:




    These are U.K. Trade hardcover editions of the First and Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. I'm not sure of the publishing history of them; i don't know which, if any, were published before the paperbacks, and which are hardcover reprints. I think the non-Collins editions might all be first editions, and quite hard to find.

    I love the color illustrations on the First Chronicles books. They were done by an artist named Peter Goodfellow, and I'd love to get prints of them.





    US and U.K. Hardcovers of the Last Chronicles. The US editions are all signed; volume 1 is inscribed to me. The U.K. Edition of The Last Dark is not a book club edition, despite its smaller size.




    Gollancz signed limited editions of Runes of the Earth (shrinkwrapped) and Seventh Decimate. The former is not as rare - 1000 copies were published - while the latter was limited to 100 copies. No extras other than the signature and slipcase.
