This came in the other day, the new deluxe collectors edition of LOTR. Lot of cool extras.

Now originally it was limited to 6,000 copies but I hear they increased the print run - not sure what the final number is though.

This came in this week from Midworld Press. 1st book from the press, that I bought, and I think they did a nice production.

Looks nice, I'm not familiar with the title, is it worth a read?

I thought it was an okay read but it didn't blow me out of the water. I will say I haven't read anything in the last few years that has really gripped me. Maybe I'm in a book funk. IDK.

What really drew me to this edition was the artwork from David Palumbo. I think it's great.

I can relate. I've been doing a lot of audio books during the pandemic, to listen to while exercising outside - which means a lot of walking or jogging. While there's been a lot of "meh" stuff there were a couple that rose to the top of my list if anyone is looking for a read, or listen :)

I bought an Artist Edition dustjacket of Phantasia Press Firestarter signed, numbered and double remarqued by Michael Whelan at original cost. Copy #2 of 10.

Also bought a Suntup numbered copy of The Omen by David Seltzer, and earlier on this week i went and bought an extra-large deluxe signed print on canvas by Don Maitz & Janny Wurts. :D
