  6. Hello all, I'm digging deeper into the motorcycle cover collection and offering up a handful that I've decided I can live without. Here's a link to my KUDOS THREAD The No PL/HOS members; The first "take it" posted in the thread wins (whether a straight thread take it, or a "take it via PM" if we reached a deal via PM). If you want to remain anonymous by purchasing via PM, this means there will be some risk of losing a book if someone posts a "take it" in the thread before I can mark the book SOLD based on your PM. Having said that, I'll mark books SOLD as soon as reasonably possible. If I put a book ON HOLD, that book is not available for purchase until it comes back off HOLD Payment I'll take PayPal, personal checks, or USPS money orders; I'll expect payment within 10 calendar days, or the book will be available for sale again (unless we've made other payment arrangements) I'll gladly consider longer-term time payments, but PM me to discuss terms before taking a book if you need that. Shipping Terms USA: - Shipping via priority mail: I'll charge you what USPS will charge me (typically between $10 and $14 for one slab, depending on how far away from Salt Lake City you are ); Canada, UK or Australia - Again, I'll charge you what USPS will charge me (we'll figure which is cheaper - first class or priority mail international - that'll depend on package value and destination); on higher-dollar books, we may want to discuss the availability of insurance (or lack thereof) before committing...PM me and I can put books on hold while we figure it out Other International Destinations: - case by case basis...I'll need to see if I'm comfortable with available shipping options - PM me Returns/Refunds I will accept returns for a refund for any reason within two weeks of your receipt of the books, as long as the books are returned to me as they were when you received them. Because these are slabs, if you want to return them, shipping both ways is on you (unless I screwed something up). Thanks for looking! Ed
  7. From my "Motorcycle Cover" collection
  8. Before I clicked in here, I thought to myself "Oh no, what did Brock do this time?" ()
  9. Actually, I think it's a bit of a more nuanced story than my short answer above. The wholesalers were concerned about the horror genre in general, so I think Gaines was being totally reactive to that situation. He decided to remove "Terror" to see if that would appease them...the title change was relatively easy. I actually think his plan at that moment was to have the renamed "Tales From the Crypt" as his only horror book to see how that worked, with plans to transition Vault of Horror into Crime SuspenStories, and to transition Haunt of Fear into Two-Fisted Tales (after which Vault and Haunt would no longer exist). I guess he figured that there was no point in changing the names of Vault and Haunt, because he was planning on discontinuing them soon anyway after he made sure that Crime SuspenStories and Two-Fisted Tales were selling reasonably well. Then, a funny thing happened - comic readers loved Vault and Haunt (and Tales), and were buying them like crazy. Seeing this, the wholesalers suddenly changed their tune and didn't have as big a problem with the "horror" books anymore , so Gaines kept everything...Vault, Haunt, CSS, and TFT, and didn't bother to change the name of TFTC back to CoT...no need to at that point, I guess.
