Acquisitions

   Last nights acquisitions. The Spears of Clontarff typescript facsimile, which reproduces the typed pages from an early draft of Robert E. Howard's story. Another volume in Guillermo del Toro's six book horror series. This one's an anthology of horror and weird tales. Finally, the one Jules de Grandin book by Seabury Quinn that I didn't previously own.

Sweet!

I'm wondering, though, if you meant the Seabury Quinn is the only one of that set you didn't own? The Jules de Grandin stories have been published in their entirety in 3 volumes.

Keith. yes, the last of the Popular Library editions. I don't have the three volume set, but my pal Cliff does, so I'll probably borrow those at some point.

I am very tempted to cherry-pick The Haunting of Hill House and Haunted Castles hardcovers from that Del Toro intro'ed series.
The other material I already have - but I'll keep an eye out down the road if they end up in the B&N bargain section I might get all six volumes.

American Supernatural Stories is the hardcover of this one;

(I couldn't preview it on Amazon, but BN.com listed the t.o.c.)

Charles, in addition to the 3 vol set of de Grandin stories, Battered Silicon Dispatch has collected all of the non-de Grandin stories. I don't have those yet, but someday...

Paul, I don't know if I'll buy all of them, either. So far just the two.

Keith, I know what you mean. Some day...
