It's a good thing I got a raise recently because the publishers of nifty things are once again apparently trying to break me. Last night I got my two volume set of the Centipede Press The Best Horror Stories of Karl Edward Wagner. Been waiting for this one, and even though I already have all the stories in the books in some other form, it's nice to have all of KEW's horror stuff in one place.
But wait, there's more. My copy of the latest release from the Robert E. Howard Foundation, Adventures in Science Fantasy, also arrived. Looks like a bunch of interesting stuff in there, on which I'm sure I'll have more to say later. And just look at that beautiful cover by Mark Schultz.
And still more. In the Shadow of Sherlock Holmes, the companion volume to In the Shadow of Dracula, which I reviewed a couple of posts ago showed up.
And finally, I picked up The Weird, a massive (1152 pages) of weird fiction, edited by Jeff and Ann Vandermeer, and featuring well over 100 stories by such notable practitioners of the weird tale as H.P. Lovecraft, Algernon Blackwood, Clark Ashton Smith, Ray Bradbury, Robert Bloch, Ramsey Campbell, F. Paul Wilson, Stephen King, and a slew of folks I'm unfamiliar with. Bet I find some new people to read in this one. This is a gigantic book and the table of contents is too long to reproduce here, so I'm providing a link.
