Re: Reggie Oliver

I received the new RO collection put out by Centipede Press yesterday and man, it is one incredible book. It's A LOT of book for the price, and content-wise, well, nothing really needs to be said about it. I had reservations about getting this because I own all of RO's early works, but I am glad I got it. It is a stunner, and is one of those types of books that's almost too beautiful to actually handle and read. It's a very large, very finely crafted book, as are all CP books, and as heavy as a boat anchor. Anyway, if you've been on the fence, I feel comfortable highly recommending this tome.

On a side-note, The Other, by Thomas Tryon, was also re-issued by CP a year or two ago with artwork by Harry O Morris. It's another book, aside from being a great story, is another CP book worth owning. It's stunning.

I agree. Mine arrived a few days ago. The book is exquisite. Unfortunately, mine arrived damaged. This was of no fault of Jerad at Centipede Press. It was packed/padded extremely well; however, the box looked like it had been through a war zone or dropped from a 4 story building -- the box was completely torn through in places. With the weight of the book and the condition of the box, I suspect no amount of padding could have saved it. Some mail handlers are absolute savages.

Much to Jerad's credit, he was very understanding and polite about it, saying a replacement was on its way.

As Ascroboius said, this book is HUGE. It might even qualify as being a potentially deadly weapon.

Re: Reggie Oliver

I got my copy today. I just wanted to chime in and echo how wonderfully made this book is. It's like an exquisitely constructed Nightmare Factory for Reggie Oliver. And that's probably an understatement. Can't wait to read out of it in the next few days.

Centipede also sent some cool extras in the box. Besides the giant book, I received a few sample pages of their Dracula, some sketches, and a card signed by Harry O. Morris and a few others. It's a nice surprise. They certainly know how to treat their customers. Like others in this thread, I am lucky enough to have all four of RO's books. I still broke down and ordered this one before the price hike, and I am definitely satisfied. It's one hell of a presentation for a great writer.

Re: Reggie Oliver

I noticed the extra goodies in the box as well. A very pleasant surprise, indeed. It's not often that you get more than you paid for.

Re: Reggie Oliver

I just made the sixteen mile round trip to the post office to pick up my copy of Dramas from the Depths. It is a truly stunning volume. The box itself was large enough to ship newborn quadruplets.

Re: Reggie Oliver

My copy of DRAMAS FROM THE DEPTHS just arrived in today's post, along with some wee extras of drawings by Lee Brown Coye!! Great Yuggoth, this book is BEAUTIFUL!! I have yet to read one word of this gentleman's fiction, and so I am full of wondrous anticipation from the great things I have read of him here at TLO. It is because of your praise that I order'd ye book -- so thank ye!

Re: Reggie Oliver

Same here. But I'm used to it. I only hope the book arrives in good condition.
