Oh flubbin’ ‘eck, now even the paperbacks are going limited-edition. S.T. Joshi’s edited collection The Ghost of Fear and Others: H. P. Lovecraft’s Favorite Horror Stories is available as a… “100 signed and numbered trade paperback edition”. The book was last spotted on Tentaclii when it came out as a limited-edition hardback.

Thankfully all the contents are online for free, to anyone who cares to spend literally five minutes looking for them — albeit without Joshi’s fine textual polishings etc, and with “House of Sounds” being only the earlier version…
