Ghost Story Books

I've started protecting and archiving my books that survived the house fire. The many I had to throw were due to either smoke or water damage.Today, I started with bagging and boxing some of my ghost story books. More will follow...

Making the most of my week away from the office. My Guy N Smith book is coming along nicely, as is my next novel, Familiar. My Explore Gower and Swansea Photography sites are up and running, I've cleaned up the design of this blog, and now I've started work on my next Gower guidebook, Tidal Gower.

Picking up our mail from our old house in the evening, I found a very special package waiting for me. If there is such a thing as grail items in the world of Guy N Smith collecting, then these are two are top of that list.

Is this the end of my GNS Collecting?

The postie brought these two books to my hands today, the first having to travel the width of the Atlantic to reach my greedy fingers:

I have been after these editions for over a year, as they are by far my favourite editions of Guy N Smith's Satan's Snowdrop and Bats out of Hell. 


 I don't think there are many more GNS books out there that I am actively seeking now. Could this be the end of my collection? We'll see.

Catweazel by Richard Carpenter

I really enjoyed watching this TV series in the 1979s. And rewarding it on Network DVD a fews years back. I'm also enjoying this novelisation and quirky illustrations. It takes me back to simpler times. Magical nostalgia at its best.

Mega Book Haul

Wednesday, 28 March, 2024

Mega haul received today. All books ranged between £4.75 and £8.99 with free postage. Good to see there's still bargains out there in 2024!

Oh, and this little fellow:

Word on the street, well in the FB GNS forums, is that some of these books are extremely rare, so the bargain I had is all the sweeter!

Garth Marenghi - Incarcerat Night Out

The Garth Marenghi Incarcerat Tour Poster

It's been a while, but I dragged myself out of the house this evening. I'm so glad I did, as Garth Marenghi was on top form for his Incarcerat show at The Grand Theatre. As well as his usual reading from his new novel and his Q&As from the audience, he also did a little directing as a couple of people were encouraged onto the stage to audition for a possible new movie of one of his classic tales. I haven't laughed so much in ages. To top the evening off, I also picked up a free large Garth Marenghi tour poster, which I plan on framing, and got the great man himself to sign the paperback copy of his novel for me :)
