    This is the first Mike Resnick book I ever bought. I even remember buying it at a bookstore now long gone, and reading it at lunchtime at work, a few minutes past the buzzer telling us lunch was over I liked it so much.
    I also still remember buying the paperback of DARK FORCES that started me on the road to Perdition, I mean, the road to Stephen King collecting, but I can't remember the name or location of the bookstore.

    Steve, very nice Resnick collection. I can see how dismayed you must be by his passing. At least his work is well remembered.

    Thanks, y'all!

    I received the ELEVATION on the right today from The Book Depository, and the one on the left last year. They are not quite identical. The one on the left states special export edition 2019, the one on the right states published in 2020, and they have different ISBN numbers. For the completists only!
    As usual, the picture is much larger and more detailed in my pictures gallery if you forgot your glasses.

    Thanks Brian!

    Got my THE NIGHT DOCTOR AND OTHER TALES from Centipede Press today.
    I have so many Centipede Press books now (I think 5), that I'm considering adding an addition to my house to accommodate them all with fancy built-in bookcases, a sweeping staircase and temperature control.

    I had to have it, so I made an offer on this Mr. Mercedes Season 3 press kit, and it was accepted! It has a notebook, a stylus with a USB something (I don't understand that) enabling you to watch episodes, I guess, sticky notes, and a colorful booklet, oh boy! Really hard to photograph it without glare using my lousy skills, hence the multitude of pictures. Captain America and Star Sapphire not included!

    Best season thus far IMO. Looks like the end of the road though unless someone else picks it.

    I haven't seen it yet. It's a challenge to find the DVDs, which were only available in DVD for the first two seasons for awhile, and now in Blu-ray after I bought them! I'm still impatiently waiting for season three to come out so I can watch it! Same goes for El Camino and a bunch of other stuff, since I don't have streaming, it's very frustrating. I'm currently re-watching Better Call Saul seasons one to three so I can finally watch season four, which has been sitting on my shelf for a while now. I am just starting season three again. And then, FINALLY, I will watch Game of Thrones from start to finish. I have still not seen seasons seven and eight and am tired of avoiding spoilers, although I have not been entirely successful doing so, to my regret. Even the photo on the Blu-ray box of season eight is a blankety-blank spoiler! And if I watch the farce that is called the Oscars (only a farce for the last few years though), I will not have seen half the Best Picture nominees, but I'll probably watch it anyway. The Irishman is impossible for me to see unless I want to drive 40 miles to a theater (which I don't) and I can't stream it, and there is no DVD release date yet, and my feelings for Mr. De Niro have gone into the toilet lately, even though I still think he's a great actor, but I'd watch it anyway because I did go to see JOKER and really liked it, and...I will now quit rambling.

    This is your happy place so ramble away! I really enjoyed The Irishman. Kinda torn whether or not I'd like Joker. I'm not sure it'd move fast enough for me from the previews I've seen.

    I HATE watching previews before seeing a movie or TV show. They often skewer the plot in the wrong direction, take things out of sequence, put cut scenes in, etc. I'll watch them AFTER with no problem, since then I've already formed MY opinion of the show on MY terms, without being influenced. Anyway, that's the way I like to do it whenever possible. In this day and age, it's almost impossible to avoid spoilers of upcoming TV shows and movies and books though, but I still try my best. I still haven't seen any previews or TV spots of JOKER, though they're probably on the Blu-Ray, which I bought.

    I got this in the mail the other day, have absolutely NO memory of ordering it, and had to have Sub Press confirm that I DID before I removed it from the bubblewarp. I am not GETTING old, I AM old! One of 250 signed (by 43 of the authors, one is a stamp), leatherbound copies.
