Ed here: A treasure of a collectable that will grow in value every years. The original covers, the black-and-white illustrations from the magazines...this is a true masterpiece of book production. For my taste the most impressive book Centipede/Millipede has produced to date.

HENRY KUTTNER: MASTERS OF THE WEIRD TALE by Henry Kuttner, intro by Stefan Dziemianowicz & Robert Morrish. Lakewood, CO; Centipede Press; 2011. 1st edition hardcover.

A four-hundred-plus page collection of the horror stories of Henry Kuttner, including his classic “The Graveyard Rats” and a number of other stories that have not been reprinted since their original publication in the pulps over fifty years ago. This collection features a striking full-color cover by Erik Gist and a color frontispiece and endpapers by J.K. Potter. Each book is SIGNED by Gist, Potter, and editor Stefan Dziemianowicz. Most of these works are not in print anywhere else, and are essential reading for pulp and Weird Tales fans. The introduction features photographs of Kuttner and full-color reproductions of all the pulp covers in which the stories were original reprinted. Each book is fully bound in cloth and comes in a handsome two-tone slipcase to match your other volumes in the Masters of the Weird Tale series.

Ed - I gopt this at the world Horror Convention in Austin when Centipede set up right across from me. I had to have the book once I looked at it. Very impressive and well worth the money (as hard as that is to believe). Amazing stuff here.
