Hi Gang!

Are we actually in an endemic now? It still seems to be changing day to day, and small businesses like us are struggling to keep up with confusing mandates while new variants (BA.2, anyone?) continue to rear their ugly little heads. As of now, we're opting to continue with masks required in the store (but not proof of vaccination); and sorry - no date yet for when we'll resume buying/trading.

We are, however, still putting out new books every day, so don't stay away!

We hope to see you soon.

Have you ever noticed the big safe full of books behind Iliad's front counter? We get asked about it frequently. "Is it really old?" is a common question (the answer: no, we bought it new just a few years ago). But most customers want to know what kind of books merit storage in a safe (we think of these as the rarest of our rare books), so in this column we'll pick one book every month and tell you about it. This month's book is...
Tales From the Crypt  5-volume set published in hardback (without jackets) by Russ Cochran in 1979. All five volumes are in a single slipcase. Condition is very good, with light rubbing to bindings and slightly bumped spine ends. $300
