THE LANGUAGE OF FEAR: The story behind this signed book plate is from a galaxy, far, far away...twenty years ago. Man.. it doesn't seem that long, but time flies.
Del James and I met when I was working at Polygram Records during the day and running the Overlook bookstore at night. He was in Atlanta for the World Horror Con promoting this collection and his first book. I remember showing up to his suite and Slayer was just leaving from a visit with him. Del's hair was also a little longer.. but then again.. so was mine ;-).
I discovered that "November Rain" by Guns n' Roses is based on his short story "Without You." Axl wrote an introduction to the collection and I thought it would be cool if we could give away some signed plates to promote the book.
Del thought so too and Axl agreed to sign as well. They signed around fifty plates during the Super Bowl that year. Do you remember that Del?
Naturally they went very fast, but I did keep a couple behind for our files. I gave one to my son, and this is the last one I've kept for myself. But 'cha know what? I think it needs a new home and the new "Special Edition of Language of Fear" is the perfect time to give it away. This collection features the original stories PLUS eleven new stories! At this price it's a great deal, and you'll be in the running for this rare signed plate. We'll announce a winner as we ship the book upon publication
