Re: My Ex Occ books

I don't know if it is something about which I should be congratulated!
But today I completed my collection of Ex Occidente Press books - a landmark in the history of Weird and other hyper-imaginative literature - and I show a list of them below, all seventy-four amazing book products so far since 2008! (I received two brand new 2015 ones just today - one by Harold Billings and the other by Avalon Brantley & Lockett Hollis)
THE LIST HERE
It was a shame about some of the logistical and trust problems some of you have had with this publisher in the past, but I don't think anyone can argue with the outcome of so many such fine, meticulously designed books that have been brought into the world.

That's quite an accomplishment; well done! That collection represents no small investment of both time and money on your part. Apart from Dan himself, you might be the only person in the world to own the full output.

I've harped on over the issues I had with delivery, but Dan made right on them, so I won't comment any further except to say that of the Ex Occidente books I did receive, each and every one of them is absolutely gorgeous. I occasionally have to pull out my copy of Dehiscence just to admire its beauty. Their tomes hearken back to an age when books were made with care and love. The fact that I still regularly read an 1817 edition of Night-Thoughts but had to discard a five year old copy of As I Lay Dying speaks volumes. Logistics aside, Ex Occidente books will be around for decades, perhaps even centuries.

Nope. I have a full collection - though not variant covers and editions. I think - though I am not sure - that there are others...

Re: My Ex Occ books

I am relieved in a way that I am not the only one!

Incidentally, I would think it impossible to have a complete collection of the variant covers and editions of each book, where appropriate.

I might be alone, though, in having done pretty long reviews of most of the seventy four separate books!

Re: My Ex Occ books

Congrats to you, Des!!!
I too share in your feat, Des and Mads. I hope it is a collection that my children will come to enjoy when they get a bit older. I think they are the nicest looking books that sit on my shelves.

What was your most difficult volume to procure? I found, Tenebrous Tales, to have been an exceedingly difficult volume to find... there are others of course.

Thanks. And congratulations to you and Mads. And I agree with what you say - they are my prized book possessions. Nothing can touch them as a gestalt of traditional books.
I suppose my hardest was (I think) the publisher's first one, and my last missing one to be obtained, a few days ago...
Rite of Trebizond.

Yes, a complete collection with variants would be near impossible, even if a complete bibliography existed.

You're definitely alone in having reviewed all separate books. And I think you will be for the foreseeable future

My hardest was The Rite of Trebizon, which I got earlier this year. I think it was mentioned in a newslestter from Tartarus Press sent with a book I ordered from them, so many years ago. I've regretted not buying that for several years, but I didn't really know of Mark Valentine's work then, and I was a student so funds were limited. Then again, I was studying up until late 2011.

Everyting else was bought on publication, so I can't say I've experienced much hardship in my collecting EOP, apart from living quite frugally at times, working overtime and suchlike.
