    Oh, those are mine. Just a note that you probably need to be logged into the CD forums to actually view the images.
    I had planned to add those deluxes to this thread when he got to them, but I suppose you just saved me the trouble.

    Most of the Centipede pics in that thread are two years old. I haven't updated the thread in ages. I've picked up about 4 or 5 more Deluxes since then that I'll add here when appropriate. Still looking for Chimera I and II, by the way...just sayin. *cough*

    Default Questions on Masters of the Weird Tale: William Hope Hodgson

    Hello,

    I have collected a few of the Masters of the Weird Tale editions published by Centipede Press and think for “looks/presentation” they are impressive. However, I have never read any at this point.

    I have read some reviews where some Master of the Weird Tale editions contain numerous typos and other issues (i.e. incomplete sentences, wrong Contents page numbering, etc.).

    For me, these editions are not cheap, and if the William Hope Hodgson edition does indeed contain incomplete passages of text, this would certainly reduce the enjoyment of the reading experience.

    I was interested in getting the William Hope Hodgson edition, but was hoping to get feedback from other collectors on if incomplete sentences do exist in this edition. I have already confirmed that in the book I was looking at to potentially purchase that the page numbering on the Contents page has wrong number entries.

    I am also curious how prevalent typos, incomplete sentences, etc are in any of the other Masters of the Weird Tale editions as I was planning to collect other authors.

    Also, in later editions by other authors, has the editing improved?

    Any feedback would be most appreciated.

    Some of the earliest Centipede Press titles have some editing issues, including a few early Masters of the Weird Tale books. They are mostly limited to small things like uncorrected typos, or slightly more irritating things like incorrect page numbers in the Table of Contents. I vaguely recall one book that may have had an incomplete story - I believe it was HPL-related.

    Looking through my copy of the William Hope Hodgson book, I don't see any mis-numbered entries. If you do end up purchasing the book and it does contain mis-numbered entries, please let me know! That could indicate a separate printing and I'd be very interested to know that.

    Overall, the quality of the editing improved after the first couple of years and I haven't noticed any issues with any of the books I've read over the years. As far as the earlier books with the issues, I still think that they're worth it, both as collectibles and as reading copies. For example, the Hodgson book has ~1100 pages of his work and contains a lot of good reading material! Overall, the Masters of the Weird Tale books are excellent buys, given both their shelf presence (I agree that the look/presentation is impressive) and the sheer volume of stories that they contain.

    I'd also keep an eye out for the Library of Weird Fiction titles, which are pretty much cheaper versions of the Masters of the Weird Tale titles. They don't have the same production values but they do have hundreds and hundreds of pages of stories, and they list at $50. Some of the first ones are getting harder to find (the Algernon Blackwood LWF book commands similar prices to the Algernon Blackwood MWT book, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, but hey ) but there are more due out this year and next. In fact, the Machen one is still available on the Centipede Press site for $40 - http://www.centipedepress.com/masters/machenlwf.html (you can ignore the unsigned note on the page - none of them were signed).

    If anyone is looking for a copy of Centipede Press’ recent The Woman in Black, Jerad might have one available.

    I asked him to reserve one for me at the time of release, but he laid two copies aside by mistake. The confusion was cleared up last night, but the extra copy might still be available if you are quick enough.

    (I already posted this in the Other Authors section, but I figured it’d fit here as well. Hope it helps one of you out!)

    Thanks for the reply to my Masters of the Weird Tale query.

    For the William Hope Hodgson edition, for the wrong page numbering, I was referring where in the Table of Contents the book I looked at stated the following:

    The Searcher of the End House 839
    The Haunted Jarvee 825 (a lower page number than the prior story)
    The Thing Invisible 839 (a second story with the same starting page number)

    Thanks also for the reminder about the Library of Weird Fiction editions. I would love to get the Machen edition; unfortunately shipping to Canada is $50 which for me is more than I am willing to spend.

    I just checked my copy and it has the same error - I missed this when I looked through it yesterday! I was flipping through the book and all the listed stories are indeed in there, if that helps.

    $50 shipping to Canada is ridiculous. But I do know that he will often hold titles and bundle international shipping for multiple books. Alternatively, there are a number of people here (including me) who are generally happy to purchase books and ship internationally at cost (though I can't promise what "at cost" will be to a particular location).

    Unfortunately, $50 [I]is[I] the cost for such a big package. Shipping prices have slowed down my collecting. Or rather, slammed the brakes on it. That isn't a bad thing in itself, but if I want to buy a $40 book and it's $30 to ship, I just get the e-book. That said, it's true that Jerad is willing to combine shipping with forthcoming books. You could also try getting future CP titles from Camelot. They do layaway and will get a "hold box" set up for you.

    I live one hour from the border so I have my packages sent to a PO Box. UPS offers the same service.

    The combined shipping is a good idea. When I looked into ordering a Masters of the Weird Tale edition from Centipede press in the past, it was $50 to Canada. I checked the Machen book and it would be $35 for shipping; however ordering two Machen editions would be $40. Thus $20 each. I will have to keep that in mind. I won’t order duplicates, but if I can find two or more books at one point, the shipping is better. Not as good as the $6 for the Machen to the US, but better than I initially thought it would be.

    I just got the Eldrics. The first volume was not in shrinkwrap, but the other two were. Is it just me that thinks that is odd...

    That is a little odd. As long as the book is fine. And, all of the numbers match. Assuming you were going to open it anyway? Speaking of which- The ELRIC books are stunning. Probably the nicest set of books that I've seen since the Wandering Star REH books. Jerad has finally done this important series justice.

    Mine came that way too - volumes 2 and 3 were shrinkwrapped, but 1 was just in a plastic bag.

    I've yet to sit down and go through them; I'll post pics to my non-King thread when I do.

    Thanks. I was a little worried, the label was ripped and I thought maybe the PO had looked at the contents. And no shipping notice. Was shocked to see box on porch today.

    I probably will open them later. I need to cull the herd and make shelf space, probably by selling all the SK proofs I have. Really not into proofs. I'm thinking of putting some shelf liner on the shelves and then I'll open all the still shrinked or bagged books.

    On another note, just looked at the drawings done for the Dune books. Wow is all I can say. Really hope I can get a copy of those.

    I didn't get a shipping notice, either, and was considering a post to this thread to ask if anyone had theirs yet. Mine arrived today. I've yet to crack the seals on 2 and 3, but 1 looks amazing. I will open the others to check the numbers and sigs, tho.

    I also hope to get a copy of Dune - the series has a lot of personal significance to me - but it's going to be very popular, I think.

    FWIW none of my volumes were shrinkwrapped. My guess is that he was checking numbers or maybe got a bit mixed up during all the packaging (which he does most of himself!) and wanted to make sure that everything was matched.

    They're damn beautiful books!! I'm loving the art. And he got some big names for the introductions so I'll definitely give them a good read.

    I'm also super excited about Dune! It's gonna sell out on the release day, for sure

    It was in some of the newsletters from last year. Last I heard it is planned for May.
