I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

A big box of Subterranean Press happy in the mail!

A couple of months back Subterranean Press offered a grab bag of books consisting of 12-14 volumes, some limited, some signed and retailing between $500-$600 for $100. I thought about it for about 5 minutes before I placed my order.

While I was on vacation last week, my box of goodies arrived and this is what I had waiting at home for me:
Metamorphosis by James Blaylock with Adriana Campoy, Brittany Cox, Alex Haniford and Tim Powers - a limited edition volume signed by all 5 authors!
Ubik: the Screenplay by Phillip K. Dick
The Other in the Mirror by Philip José Farmer
Necroscope: the Plague-Bearer by Brian Lumley
D.A. by Connie Willis
Vacancy & Ariel by Lucius Shepard
The Kragen by Jack Vance
The Book of Dreams edited by Nick Gevers
This is Me, Jack Vance! by Jack Vance
Rude Mechanicals by Kage Baker
Mister Slaughter by Robert McCammon
Collected Stories by Lewis Shiner
The Dark Volume by Gordon Dahlquist - signed by the author
The Best of Robert E. Howard, Volume 1: Crimson Shadows illustrated by Jim Keegan and Ruth Keegan - a limited edition slip-cased edition signed by the illustrators

Total retail for the entire lot? $620. I think I got my money's worth! Now, just to find the time to read all these great books...

It did! If they ever offer a deal like this again, I'm going to buy it.
