PLEASE DO NOT BUY IT NOW!! I am posting this as a quick update for people who have already pre ordered, and to those waiting for the release date.
JUNE 9 UPDATE!! We are in the final stretch, I will begin shipping completed books out during the week of the 18th to the 22nd.!!! YEAH! They will go out in the order they were purchased. but ALL pre orders will ship that week. I will start taking new orders THIS WEEK. Probably on WED the 13th. I have between 10 and 20 slipcase versions still available, so if you want one, ORDER ON WED. that way I can be done with slipcases for this book. They are a pretty tedious thing to make.
Lastly, for people who have asked, I am already starting on another book. I will let everyone know what it is soon, I just want to be a little farther along, THANK YOU!
Straight from the same hands that brought you "The Fantasy Fan", comes a new book. This is the complete 5 issue run of Marvel Tales, coming in at nearly 300 pages it is full of incredible stories, comments, and art from some the genres biggest and most influential names, Lovecraft, Howard, Derleth, Long, Jacobi, and the list goes on. The original editor was William Crawford, famous for publishing "The Shunned House" HP Lovecraft's only book published in his lifetime. Crawford printed each of these zines himself, and even went as far as doing alternate covers... MY HERO!
Those of you familiar with "The Fantasy Fan" will know I have taken great care to recreate the look and feel of original 1930's fanzines, down to the color on the covers and the use of tan paper, This book is no exception, and having learned many lessons from TFF, this one is even better! The book is a whopping 3.5 pounds, and will keep the same simple feel of TFF. I will include the alternate covers, also extra items. I print and bind EVERY book myself, NOTHING digital, Just like Mr. Crawford did. As always, PRINT ANALOG!!!
