    Wow! Very special. How did they manage approval for that? That would've involved a lot of bureaucracy here in the Netherlands With current politics I doubt they would allow that here these days.

    Just pre-ordered Childhood's End from Centipede Press. I was able to match my number to the previous ACC set Jerad published.

    Hopefully that would involve a lot of bureaucracy everywhere. I'm not saying it should be outright prohibited, but the production and sale of goods including actual human frickin' bones is something I'd like the authorities (yours, mine, everywhere) to keep an eye on...

    a good number of Piers Anthony i believe i have i think 78 of his books,he's got i think 192 books thus far i just made a list of all his books that's why i remember the number.

    let's see Dean Koontz there's so many i need as a shit ton of them are out of print and have been prolly since before i was even born i'm 41 so there goes your age on how long some have prolly been out of print.

    Anne Rice, Stephen King, Ed McBain, James Patterson. Patrica Cornwell, Kathy Reichs, Jeffery Deaver i had to think hard for a minute on that one to Quote Gumby from Monty Python My Brain Hurts lol.

    John Saul i just love his work, Janet Evanovich i enjoy her books too but i don't read her early shit her romance novels at all for obvious reasons. John Grisham spelled right? sorry if it wasn't.

    Joe Hill as well. and i'm sure i'm missing some as well.

    and read your post about Dracula i dunno that book as i've never heard of it but each time i hear about how Dracula should be done i think about Christopher Lee where he Quit playing the role cause it was by the end of his run so far away from the book it pretty much made him really pissed about it i think cause he loved the book so much. and the (1970) film Count Dracula directed by Jess Franco he said is the closest it's ever come to the novel. it's not a bad film either

    A couple of new additions to my Dune collection arrived yesterday.
    I've never seen this style of proof come up for sale previously for any of the series.

    God Emperor of Dune, signed by Frank Herbert.



    And Heretics of Dune. Not signed, but contains hand written corrections and notes from the copy editor on nearly every page.






    There are more photos in my collection thread here.

    A couple of years ago, a french publisher released a limited edition reproduction of the original manuscript of FRANKENSTEIN

    I dont know if that would interest anybody, but continue to release manuscript reproduction of classics.
    Their latest title is the PETER PAN manuscript
    They also have Alice in Wonderland and other stuff

    If that may interest somebody >>> https://www.spbooks.com/en/14-manuscripts

    I finished Josh Malermanís A Little Red Book of Requests a few days ago. It was my first taste of Malermanís writing and I loved it, especially the first and third stories (the second felt a bit rushed and unfinished). However, I have never seen so many typographical errors in a book. It definitely needed another round or two of proofreading. Seeing as how I have two other Little Books (Joe Hillís and Jack Ketchumís), I really hope this isnít the norm for Borderlands Press.

    I've noticed those typos too, in other publisher's books as well. It's annoying, and there may be a legitimate excuse for it, but I've also seen them in Gauntlet's books too, especially THE BEARDLESS WARRIORS. Then there are books like FIRE AND BLOOD from Sub Press, of which I am over half-way through and darn if I've encountered even ONE typo!

    The book I read before this, Clive Barker's Mr Maximillian Bacchus and the Long Title I Can't Remember from Bad Moon Books, was also riddled with them.

    Maybe it's because these are truly small presses (perhaps even one-man shows) and the books are first-time releases, so there is no existing master file to work with. I can imagine that makes it easier for typos to go unnoticed. Still, I'm a professional translator/copy editor, so these things rip me right out of the story every single time.

    MANY of Nancy A. Collins's small press titles have at least three typos on every page. At one point I was going to write them all down while reading and send it to the publisher but I mulled it over and decided it would do little or no good.

    Amazing product. Been looking at this over the last week or so.

    It would have to be the Immortal Edition, and very tempting to read it from the case, so would be glad of the digital edition they also provide.
