I won a few new ARCS, they should reach me shortly. I will post pics when the books arrive. Clive Barker, Robert McCammon, and Richard Laymon novels. All books in fine condition.

I had a chance to win "Once Upon A Halloween" Richard Laymon CD edition, signed. Someone sniped me in the last few seconds. :-(

I scanned a few of the Proof/arcs. I still need to scan the McCammon book and I am waiting on a few others to arrive.

Bentley Little - The Circle ( I don't collect Little, but I landed this copy on the cheap (under 10$ USD) and have high hopes the value will jump in a short amount of time. So, this one was a bit of future investment.)

Richard Laymon - The Stake (St. Martins Press US edition)

Richard Laymon - The Midnights Lair (this one has a spine bump and a bit of a cover crease, it also has the business card from St. Martins Press stapled to the cover, kind of adds a bit of character. I placed wax paper between the cover and the front leaf to protect the page from staple rust.)

Clive Barker - In The Flesh (this proof is a bit of a rarity. It can be found but condition is everything and this copy is very solid with some minor handling wear and a bit of rubbing.)

Clive Barker - The Thief of Always (ARC)Front, flawless copy.

Nice grab! All of these ARCS are great. I'm getting a bit up in arms that your finding these Laymon proofs and I never can find any!

I think you made a good call on that Bentley ARC. I would imagine it's value would be greater than 10.00, even now.

Are these books signed?

No, none of the books are signed. I did get a great bargain on "Midnights Lair", I landed it for 20.00 USD.
