    I love those Hitchock's. And that Ellison... And.. And... I want a library card to your library!

    Hey, have you got the Charnel House S/L edition of Harlan's "Coffin Nails"? That looks like a very cool edition.

    I have the S/L of COFFIN NAILS, but not the lettered, because I don't have enough money and he refuses to take payments. However, his Ellison lettereds do not sell out quickly and may still be available.

    I received my GWENDY'S BUTTON BOX alternate cover and coin today from jsmcmullen92, wrapped in a kerchief I never knew existed! What a nice surprise. Unfortunately, right after I took these pictures (2 angles because it's so hard to get a non-glare photo off the broad-art protective cover), I accidentally put the coin in a vending machine, then hit diet instead of regular Mountain Dew, which I threw out because I don't like drinking liquid mace. Then, I was so mad my nose started running, so I grabbed the nearest handkerchief...well, you have good days and you have bad days...

    The CP Ender's Game is great - the added book with a facsimile of the original submission was genius.

    And I'm glad to see that it has a prominent place in your collection!

    Also I love the first editions. I have the CP and Easton Press versions myself but not the firsts. Great grabs!!
    Looking for the following Centipede Press books:
    • Any book with limitation number #52
    • Chimera #2 (any #)
    • Don Brautigam Portfolio with Brautigam & Koontz signature (any #)
    • Deluxe (Roman Numeral) editions
    • ARC/Proofs

    I have been sprayed with mace once, and Diet Mountain Dew puts the same taste in my mouth. I can stand Diet Dr. Pepper and Vernors, but not Dew.

    God I loved that book (and actually the rest of the series). Never thought of collectable editions of it, might have to see what's out there...

    Back when I was in high school, a couple of years ago I believe, someone thought, on a hot summer's day, it would be a fine prank to spray mace through the open windows of the school bus, packed with me and a bunch of other students. Ah, what a jolly, roly-poly fun time high school was!

    I loved ENDER'S GAME and SPEAKER FOR THE DEAD, but starting with XENOCIDE, which I found almost unreadable, every succeeding Ender book got worse for me. For some reason I stuck with it for awhile before I stopped reading Card altogether, although I was actively collecting him for years at that time. My favorite books of his are the Prentice Alvin series, ALL of which I found to be some of the best books I've ever read.

    My paperbacks were mixed up, and I found a 1st US paperback of ENDER'S GAME and these, all as new except the ENDER'S GAME, of course, it has a few flaws:

    They look great! I'm officially jealous of books I hadn't even thought of collecting until this morning

    Ahhh, I hope that person who thought that was a fun prank, also enjoyed a swift shoe deep in the plums at some point in his career...

    Now, back to Harlan Ellison. I loved the short story collection, with "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream" but, not being such a sci fi fan, I'd probably not get into this side of his work. Any other dark fantasy / horror stuff of Ellison's I should read? Also, do you have any photographs up here of Coffin Nails S/L?

    Here are two views of the S/L COFFIN NAILS. I hope one day I can find (afford) the lettered edition:

    Thanks for posting pics of your Card collection! Nice to see a few UK editions as well.

    I've been slowly collecting a mish-mash of signed and unsigned US and UK editions of Card over the years. The UK editions are problematic because many of his works were never published there.

    I have a few Card UK editions, but not many.
