1  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: PS Publishing and Half-Price Books... on: January 07, 2015, 04:43:17 PM

Oh, I though Half-Price only had a couple locations! Is it like an East Coast thing? Never seen one in California at least...

There are four HPB in California, but they're all up North around the San Francisco Bay Area. Luckily, so am I.  Grin

Ron, I only saw the Secret Histories Tim Powers books at my local HPB, but I already own that one. Paid a lot more for it too! What were some of the other titles you saw? And which ones did you pick up?

I would suggest asking Ron Clinton where he gets his bookcases. His look very nice and sturdy.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Congrats, Andy! And what a great name choice. So, did you say A stork brought her, or a Stark?  Wink

Sorry I'm late to the party. I'm embarrassed to say I could only spare $5.00 to throw into the Horror Drive-IN pot this time. I'm glad to hear that the goal for 2015 was achieved. So my $5 can help in 2016 I guess, and by then, hopefully I can afford to add a more substantial donation.

And Ron, please exclude me from the free books drawing. It wouldn't be fair to all the generous and awesome Horror Drive-In members who stepped up to the plate big time. Besides, as my wife constantly tells me, "You have too many books already!"  Roll Eyes

I never read it, but I own the audio book and have listened to it twice over the years. I really enjoyed listening to King read it. King is one of the best readers of his own work. King, Harlan Ellison, and Neil Gaiman are three authors that I wish read there own work exclusively for the audio editions of their books. So, I guess I'd say that I really enjoyed the audio version of BAG Of BONES, but don't know how I would enjoy reading it myself.

My condolences, Mark.

Almost picked it up today @ 60% off...well, 20% off with an add'l 40% coupon on the balance...probably works out to be around 50% off.  Decided to put it back and pick it up instead at Costco in the next week or two so I could use my 40% off coupon on something else (which I just posted in the cool acquisition thread).

Sounds like I wasn't the only one using my 40% off coupon at Half Price books today.  Wink

Well, going by those examples I'd say she seems a bit passive aggressive and not very empathetic. Sounds like you're well rid of her.

Glad to hear the new job is going relatively well, Mark. I hope your dating life gets better next!

11  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: Harlan Ellison stroke on: October 18, 2014, 03:31:15 PM
Glad to hear the good news, but there is still the matter of medical expenses. I wonder if Harlan has insurance? Even with it, a hospital stay can be expensive.

If anyone really cares and wants to help, I suggest buying a book. Yes, they are overpriced paperbacks, and I've avoided buying any thus far, but I got one this evening. I opted for None of the Above, which is Harlan's unproduced screenplay for Spinrad's Bug Jack Barron.


  At his age Harlan should have medicare, and I believe he's smart enough to opt for additional insurance that helps to cover what medicare doesn't, but I'm sure he can use all the money he can get to cover incidentals. I myself bought four of his over sized paperbacks last month, I believe. And few more last year. They are a bit pricey, but at least (I assume) Harlan gets a nice chunk of the profits.


12  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: Most Anticipated Books in the Immediate Future on: October 17, 2014, 10:45:03 AM

I'm very much looking forward to this months release of The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones (Song of Ice and Fire) by George R. R. Martin, Elio Garcia, and Linda Antonsson. http://www.powells.com/biblio/62-9780553805444-0.

Just got off the phone with Harlan and he sounded great.  If you did not know he had a stroke you probably would not know at least by phone conversation.  He says he should be out of the hospital in a week with physical therapy continuing at home.


That's awesome news! Thanks for the update, Jim.


14  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: Harlan Ellison stroke on: October 12, 2014, 03:25:33 PM

Oh, no! That is terrible news. I'll be sending positive thoughts to Harlan and Susan. I hope he pulls through.

15  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Amazon has a Horror ebook sale going on in honor of Halloween.. on: October 08, 2014, 12:18:29 PM

Hey, gang. Just thought I'd let everyone know that Amazon has a number of Horror titles on sale for $1.99 in honor of Halloween. It looks like all the titles derive from the former Leisure Horror line. So, like many of you I have already bought these books at one time, but for anyone who hasn't , you might want to check out the sale. http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=s9_al_bw_feat?ie=UTF8&docId=1002990841&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-12&pf_rd_r=0ZTXFNRF4C0TBS9DMBF7&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1944669162&pf_rd_i=8794559011
