    He may already have a kidney. He has the eyes of his father and the heart of a little boy.

    Yay, congrats fush! Glad you finally got a signed copy.

    The cover-work looks amazing, I clicked on the art samples link but had to close it down when I read it may reveal spoilers. Not before seeing the first piece of art, though. Is it just me or

    does the man in it look like Nicholson's portrayal of good ole Jacky~Boy?
    I wish I could justify buying one of these books, but at the moment I can't.

    *Jealous!*

    That gives me an idea. Maybe I could barter a deal with him. I wonder how he's fixed for a bag of old toenail clippings?

    Hey just tell her to give us all a call. That should do it.

    Welcome to the wonderful (and very, very, very expensive) world of fine book collecting!! Better start saving up for the next one to come down the pike.........just a head's up there. I am really very happy for you! You will have to let us all know what your thoughts are when it arrives in the mail, you've got it in your hands and are able to actually touch it and feel it and savor the art work and see KIng's and the artists signatures and, yes, even smell it. There just about nothing better in the world than this.......

    Excuse me but I thought "mad money" meant not having to tell, including but not limited to not having to tell about the existence of the mad money.

    I have this problem where I can't keep secrets from my wife.
    She actually was happy for me, believe it or not. I guess she knows by now how much the SK universe means to me. Although she did remark that it was going to be tough to make the convention this year, but we haven't been certain about that for some time now...still hoping to find a way to make it work.
