    1. The Rise of Endymion - Dan Simmons
    "I fancy it's the limitation to a thousand copies that is the chief charm and value of an edition deluxe. I don't expect to read this edition deluxe myself, although you needn't tell that to anybody else. Frankly, you know, I don't suppose that anybody ever reads an edition deluxe. No one puts bric-a-brac to any very practical purpose. There's some human instinct which makes a man treasure what he is not to make any use of, because everybody does not possess it.

    I know you didn't ask me, but I loved Cabin. The ending to that book is one of my all-time favorites. It was very powerful and definitely sticks with you. I'm excited about the upcoming movie but also super nervous about M Night might do to the story.

    Yeah, it was great. I have the same fears with M Night. He is either great or really bad, not much in between. I will be seeing it on the first weekend regardless. Tremblay is for the most part great at ending his stories. The Pallbearers Club is a fine example.

    I agree, I love the endings to his books. I have The Pallbearers Club but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. Hopefully soon.

    Retired myself and that's exactly what I am doing. Only thing is, I'm reading the Fantagraphics editions whenever a new one is being released. So far, 23 released and read, think about 10, give or take, to go. Hope I'll last that long!

    Retirement is likely 3-4 years away for me.
    I started collecting the Carl Barks Library back in 1984 and from there learned about the Barks lithographs (have several), The Fine Art of Donald Duck and the Another Rainbow porcelain figures (have one). The Fantagraphics editions are nice; I purchased the first five or six for my son.
