Whoa!

Got all excited when I got the email from Ernie yesterday, went straight to the pre-order page, only to see a timer counting down to Sunday when the orders open.
I have the other two volumes, so there's no way I want to miss getting this one to complete the set.
I note that unfortunately, free shipping does not apply to us furriners in far-flung parts of the globe, so with shipping to Australia it's gonna cost me an arm and a leg... Lessee that's 6 balljoints...

I have An Animated Life, The Art of.., A Century of Model Animation, an original Film Fantasy Scrapbook and the new scrapbook. When I saw the preview images of some of the photos in this book, my eyes literally fell out! The thing is pre ordering from the UK.

We all have to wait, Angus. :(  

But it will be a nice birthday present in November.

"It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas"... I've been a really good boy this year, so I'm ordering my today ... WOOT!
... Jbd

I have 2 and 3. They are incredible. I just ordered 1 and can't wait!

I think you all would enjoy the FXRH reprint book as well. I had 3 of the 4 issues back in the day and they are really nice.

 

 

Ok, I ordered it.

Looking at the table of contents, it doesn't have as much of interest to me as the other two volumes, but by now I know they will do an excellent job with it, and probably surprise me.  I can't very well stop at 2 volumes can I?  I've seen astronomical prices asked for the first volume after it went out of print, so it seems worthwhile having the full set.

I've always been fascinated by Ray's teen years, so I've been looking forward to this one. I doubt it will have anything really new that Ray himself hasn't published in his own books, but I leave myself open to pleasant surprises.

This is the volume that I was interested in all along.

I am aware that puts me in the minority, but I find that Ray's established years are so well covered all over in his own books and so on that his early work seemed to get short shrift.

Pre ordered my copy and I can't wait.

I just read the E-Mail that mine has shipped. I agree that seeing more of Ray's earlier work will be cool. Bthom, is that you from KiK?

Yes, it is! Glad to see a fellow KiK poster here. what makes this book interesting to me is that the outline by Edgar Wallace for the Beast is included. there were a few tantalizing pages in The Girl in the hairy Paw, but nowhere else.
