    Agreed!

    Got these The Library of America books from Amazon today. As usual lately, their packaging was atrocious, but the single volume only suffered minor damage. The boxed set contains the single volume, and if I'd known that I might not have ordered it separately, but the one volume is called FOUR CLASSIC NOVELS 1968-1969, and the boxed set is labeled EIGHT CLASSIC NOVELS OF THE 1960s, which adds to the confusion.

    The novels are
    THE HIGH CRUSADE by Poul Anderson
    WAY STATION by Clifford D. Simak
    FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON by Daniel Keyes
    AND CALL ME CONRAD (THIS IMMORTAL) by Roger Zelazny
    PAST MASTER by R. A. Lafferty
    PICNIC ON PARADISE by Joanna Russ
    NOVA by Samuel R. Delany
    EMPHYRIO by Jack Vance

    I bought these because I collect Vance and Zelazny. They are handsome volumes.

    Bought this Matheson proof on E-Bay. Made an offer for less than half the Buy it Now price and it was accepted! I never knew this proof for the paperback existed and it is signed by Matheson to boot. Happy to add it to my Matheson collection:

    Me too, but not in this case for some reason. Maybe because it's such a small book. The Book Depository listed two paperbacks with different prices and different ISBNs. I ordered both, just got this one. Maybe the other is an international edition.

    Thanks guys.

    Q: Why are these paperweights sexy?

    A: Because they're stacked.

    The way theyíre displayed now, they look like paperweightweights. Better order some paperweightweightweights to weigh down your paperweightweights.

    Ohboyohboyohboy! Three new King paperbacks came out this week! Here's one of them I got from Amazon today, so it's a little bent, but not creased, it'll straighten out:

    Got some more stuff today, including the US paperback of ELEVATION and my I AM LEGEND ARC, which, if I could do them, would have sent me into cartwheels, since I am an avid Matheson collector.
