    Default Lurker - Non-King

    Since there was a recent discussion about the Centipede Oxrun books, I thought I start with those. I have a matching set of them -#14.







    I did request the matching Nestling when I ordered from Centipede, but did not get my number. And to further driver number completists crazy - it is possible to get a matching Roman numeral XX or under. I haven't found XIV yet, but got pretty darn close!

    I seem to recall having a few books that matched the cover/spine format of the top two books. I can't remember, is that how most Centipede books look?

    Nice set!! And matched - very cool!!

    The Roman Numeral contributor's copies drive me nuts as well! For other publishers I don't feel the compulsion to own a "PC" if I already own a real number, but for Centipede Press the fact that the "PC" copies have Roman Numerals makes me want to collect them as well

    EDIT: I should add that for some books (particularly early books) CP used Roman Numerals to denote deluxe editions. For the majority of books, however, Roman Numerals are "contributor's copies", so essentially numbered PCs.

    That was the standard format for CP books published up through 2012 (with a few exceptions). In 2013 he started using dustjackets, and the unjacketed books since then have a different format (usually full silk cloth instead of the faux leather spine + cloth boards).
    Looking for the following Centipede Press books:
    • Any book with limitation number #52
    • Chimera 1 & 2 (any #)
    • Don Brautigam Portfolio with Brautigam & Koontz signatures (any #)
    • Deluxe (Roman Numeral) editions
    • ARC/Proofs

    I had a chance once to buy all the Charles Grant books by Centipede at a fantastic price, and I passed...I really, really regret that decision.

    Thanks. Do you have a link for that? I tried a search but only found Centipede's Facebook and some others but not GW pics.

    I think I have all the Farris books - but never really bought a lot of the others (well, I did the King book when people were still arguing if Jerad was legit). I thought I had a GW set from EP but it turns out they didn't do the whole series. Annoying. Like Jerad not finishing Oxrun!

    I admit it, Iím jealous. Would love to add those to my Grant collection (which coincidentally is what I chose for my first non-King post). Looking forward to seeing the rest of your collection!

    Thanks. I think the only other Grant's I have are Quietly Now and Shadows. Guess those are both in the King section. I remember reading most of his work in those pb's back in the day. Brings back memories. I never saved many of the paperbacks I read - just Zeena Henderson and a few others...now where might they be...
