We have three copies of the lettered edition of Dan Simmons' coming-of-age masterpiece Summer of Night that are very slighty afflicted with glue spots. We can't charge full price for these, so if you're looking for a bargain, they're $250 off the regular price. The imperfections are hardly noticeable.
The cover is here.
We're at work on the interior illustrations for John Scalzi's Miniatures, which is on schedule for a December release.

The first review of Kevin Hearne's The Purloined Poodle is in, and we'd love to share it with you.
According to Publishers Weekly:
Hearne skillfully balances silly doggy humor, a solidly constructed Sherlockian mystery, and easygoing druidic fantasy in this quick read.
We're just a few short months from publication, so order your copy now!
We've just heard from the publisher that the illustrated edition of Joe R. Lansdale's Paradise Sky is at the printer, with copies due to ship to us next month.
About the Book:
A rollicking novel about Nat Love, an African-American cowboy with a famous nickname: Deadwood Dick.
Young Willie is on the run, having fled his small Texas farm when an infamous local landowner murdered his father. A man named Loving takes him in and trains him in the fine arts of shooting, riding, reading, and gardening. When Loving dies, Willie re-christens himself Nat Love in tribute to his mentor, and heads west.
In Deadwood, South Dakota Territory, Nat becomes a Buffalo Soldier and is befriended by Wild Bill Hickok. After winning a famous shooting match, Nat’s peerless marksmanship and charm earn him the nickname Deadwood Dick, as well as a beautiful bride. But the hellhounds are still on his trail, and they brutally attack Nat Love’s bride. Pursuing the men who have driven his wife mad, Nat heads south for a final, deadly showdown against those who would strip him of his home, his love, his freedom, and his life.

We've just sent the second installment of Robert McCammon's vampire epic to the printer. Our trade hardcover should be out in October, followed shortly thereafter by the signed, limited edition.
For those worried about missing the first leg of the novel, know that Last Train from Perdition stands alone, as well as featuring a lengthy "What has gone before" section by the author. It's the perfect way to get aboard this runaway freight of a tale.
As Booklist says about the novella:
This is perfect for Deadwood fans and those who enjoy the American Vampire graphic-novel series by Scott Snyder. Clear a couple of hours, you'll want to devour this in one sitting.
George R. R. Martin's A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms —illustrated by Gary Gianni—is now shipping. It will take us a week or so to get everyone's copy in the mails, so if you could hold off on querying about your copy, we can keep our heads down and keep shipping.
Thanks to everyone for their patience on this one. It turned out beautifully.
Note: The Grab Bags are now sold out.
We're back with one of our most popular promotions—the grab bags—which we haven't offered in well over a year.
Each bag will contain a mix of signed limited editions and trade hardcovers. We expect each to contain approximately 8-10 books, with a guaranteed retail value of $350 or greater. Some of the books may be distributor returns, and not perfect, but at the price, we think you'll agree the overall package can't be beat. Most of the titles we're using have never before been offered in a Grab Bag, so you're bound to find a good supply of new reading material.
Our most recent grab bags have been in the $150 range, but this one is being offered for only $99 plus shipping.
One thing is very different about this grab bag.
We've had a special signed limited edition produced especially for it: The Case of the Bleeding Wall by Joe R. Lansdale and Kasey Lansdale. This long new novella, part of the Dana Roberts series of supernatural investigator stories, is limited to only 500 numbered copies signed by both authors. This new Lansdale volume is guaranteed to be a part of your grab bag.
In addition, we're clearing our inventory shelves of many one- and two-of-a-kind items, so there's no telling what sort of rarity you might receive.
Please note that If you purchase more than one grab bag, you're very likely to receive the same or similar contents.
We're happy to let you know that our allotment of The Graveyard Book Graphic Novel Signed Limited Edition has been increased slightly. If you missed ordering one the first time around, now's the time to take advantage of the second chance.
