Underground Reading: Cosmic Checkmate & King of the Fourth Planet (F-149)
George Pelecanos & David Simon @ The Prince Charles Cinema, 22 July

Summer Sales

A little bit of virtual shopping to keep you busy during the long days:

- VJ Books are selling their unsigned first editions for under $10.

- Hard Case Crime (who now have 58 books published... and counting) have also released some t-shirts featuring their brilliant original cover art.

- Todd Klein has released his fourth print. This time he's paired up with artist J.H. Williams III to create a stunning Arthurian print - 'Drawing the Sword'. Our copies have already shown up in the post and are fantastic. If you're not collecting Klein's prints, you're missing out. From an design standpoint, they're brilliant collaborations of a master typographer with some of the best artists in the business. From a collector's standpoint, these are huge, limited-edition prints with some of the most sought-after signatures in the business for a ridiculously low price. 

- Centipede Press - publishers of beautiful editions of classic horror, mystery & sf - have a wonderfully arbitrary sale. Check the description of every book, as the owner has been slashing prices at random. A good chance to get some great editions.
