WEINBERG TALES edited by Douglas Ellis, Robert T. Garcia and Phyllis Weinberg
1st US Trade Paperback
"Lavishly illustrated with artwork and photos, this is a suitable tribute to a legend of the field.”—Locus:
A Locus New and Notable Book for June 2017.
"Put together by Bob's wife Phyllis and many long term friends and fellow dealers, this is THE tribute book to a legend of our collecting world. Back cover color portrait of Bob by Weird Tales artist Jon Arfstrom." — Bud’s Art Books
Weinberg Tales features Robert Weinberg's series of articles: "Collecting Fantasy Art.” It is a fascinating look at collecting science fiction art in the late 20th Century with profiles on collectors Gerry de la Ree, Sam Moskowitz, Darrell C. Richardson, Robert Lesser, and others. Through a series of remembrances of specific art deals, Weinberg describes how pulp and paperback cover art survived through the diligence and sometimes the crazy obsession of avid collectors. Illustrated with dozens of covers and illustrations from Bob's collection (in B&W).
The book also contains "My Life in Fantasy" in which Bob describes his years-long connection with the World Fantasy Convention culminating in his receipt of the convention’s Life Achievement Award in 2005. Finally, it republishes his life-affirming piece: “A Dream of Mars,” in which he details his life-long wish to travel to Mars. (Which explains Douglas Klauba’s stunning cover [at left].)
There are examples of Weinberg miscellania scattered throughout: a Robert and Phyllis Weinberg Books ad, an "I collect Fantasy Art" ad soliciting original art; their mail-order book catalog covers, sample pages from art catalogues, photos from the Robert E. Howard Days celebration in 2005, convention photos, family photos, book covers, fanzine covers and more.
In addition, there are over 40 appreciations from family and friends including Randy Broecker, Mort Castle, Stefan R. Dziemianowicz, Phyllis & Alex Eisenstein, Harlan Ellison, Ken Faig, Lail Finlay, Ron Fortier, Mike Gold, George Hagenauer, Angeline Hawkes, Tina Jens, Stephen Jones, Stephen Korshak, Joe R. Lansdale, Terry McVicker, Will Murray, Otto Penzler, Steven H. Silver, David Truesdale, Ray Walsh, and F. Paul Wilson.
270 pages, 7 x 10 Trade Paperback, ISBN: 978-0-9907846-6-1
Monies received (over the cost of printing the book) will be used to benefit Project Pride. Project Pride is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization that owns and maintains the Robert E. Howard Museum as an educational tool to promote and retain the legacy of Howard, creator of the sword and fantasy literary genre.

THE COLLECTORS' BOOK OF VIRGIL FINLAY by Robert Weinberg, Douglas Ellis and Robert T. Garcia
Signed 1st US Hardcover Trade Edition
Signed and Numbered Kickstarter edition / 90 copies
Signed and Numbered Leatherbound Edition / 25 copies
“Arguably the finest art book of the year.”— Karen Haber, Locus Magazine
"Virgil Finlay specialized in pen-and-ink drawings of ethereal women, illustrations for Weird Tales, figures set against starry backgrounds (as in his much-reproduced portrait of H.P. Lovecraft in 18th-century garb), and scenes with a Midsummer Night’s Dream feel to them. In this case, exceptional reproductions do justice to the even more exceptional originals."
—Miichael Dirda, The Washington Post (Picks for holiday gift books)
"...this limited edition is a fitting tribute to Finlay, whose influence on the field is felt to this day. Published in a tiny edition of 400 copies this undoubtedly won't be in print for long.”
— Arnie Fenner, Muddy Colors
Virgil Finlay was
the premier illustrator of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror fiction
in the pulps from the 30s through the 60s. This beautiful art book
features art from the collections of Robert Weinberg, Doug Ellis, Glynn
Crain, and Robert Wiener. Released at the World Fantasy Convention in
conjunction with the Centenary celebration of Finlay's birth, this
collection contains some of the finest reproductions of his B&W
work to date, with most printed at their original size, so you can
truly appreciate his fine artistry. The color pieces have been printed
with a 200 LPI press, assuring a beauty and faithfulness to the image
hard to surpass.
STALKING THE ZOMBIE by Mike Resnick
fantasy and private-eye noir, laced with healthy doses of humor, these
are little nuggets of goofy perfection, absolutely guaranteed to make
the author’s legion of fans cheer out loud—and then start clamoring for
the next full-length Mallory adventure.”— Starred
Review in Booklist
"Living in a
magical world can be a blessing and a curse and it delivers delightful
dilemmas to the diligent detective. What would you do if the
intelligent, magic broom belonging to the arch demon who is your sworn
enemy falls in love with you? How do you find a local politician when
they die but decide they want to go out for dinner and a burlesque show
or two before the funeral? When your sworn enemy decides to hire you,
do you take the job? Toss in a magic mirror with an O.C.D./neatness
problem, a petulant partner, and an office cat-person with expensive
tastes but no long term (SHINY!) memory and you have a book worthy of
your time and money." —John Collins, Examiner.com
unusual, keeping one's mind straight carries one further than you'd
expect. "Stalking the Zombie: Fables of Tonight" is a collection of
short fiction from Mike Resnick, focusing on his blend of noir and
fantasy with detective John Justin Mallory, who works in an alternate
Manhattan where the legends of our world are very much true. With a
strong blend of humor and adventure, "Stalking the Zombie" is a choice
and recommended addition to general fiction and fantasy collections,
highly recommended." —Midwest Book Review
Continuing the series
which began in the novel Stalking the Unicorn and
continuing with Stalking the Dragon and Stalking The
Vampire, Stalking the Zombie is the first collection of short
stories featuring Mike Resnick's detective John J. Mallory. Eight,
hilarious tales with a hard-boiled detective from our world, unhappily
stranded in a Manhattan filled with trolls, pink elephants, blue-nosed
reindeer, powerful demons and more. This edition features:

INVISIBLE PLEASURES by Mary Frances Zambreno
FIRST TRADE HARDCOVER / 500 COPIES
stories are pithy, chockablock with munchy bits, and often wise. They
are full of the medievalist's love of bright shining objects but also
wired into the dark underbelly of change. Her strong women transcend
the times in which they live, whether it's the difficult past—or even
the more difficult future. So once again, I say: `Write more, damn it!"
Pleasures is the first short story collection by Mary Frances
Zambreno, author of A Plague of Sorcerers and Journeyman
Wizard. A fantasy collection with smatterings of science fiction
and horror. Over a dozen stories in all, the book covers the best of
her writing. Zambreno’s stories of powerful,
intuitive women have engaged readers young and old for over twenty
years. Known primarily for her young adult novels, you will find that
her tales for adults are equally “Fast-moving, expertly written, and
Queens, healers, witches,
adventurers, students, young girls and others are the focus of these
tales. Her protagonists are always pushed to the limit, finding their
individual strength and resolve though adversity. Whether they occupy
the author’s home of Chicago or the worlds of fairie, their journeys
take place in a hostile world, whose threats are conquered by clear
thinking, intellect and courage.

THE MAN ON THE CEILING by STEVE RASNIC & MELANIE TEM
Chapbook / 500 copies / 1st appearance, 1st edition
"The kind of short story that reminds you what fiction is capable of being, of doing, of making, for the reader and for the author.'' --Neil Gaiman
''I have only two words for the Tems' The Man on the Ceiling: exquisitely compelling. The confessional power, the dangerously arcane secrets exposed, the field of its vision, and the way the story is told . . . well, I have only two words: you must read this. Four words. As good as anything I've read in the last half dozen years, I have only one word for it: simply brilliant. And one word more: Hurrah for the Tem axis!'' --Harlan Ellison
''Do not read this story if you are alone. Do not read this story if you are afraid of the truth. Do not read this story if you have ever been afraid of the dark and do not wish to be again.'' --Dan Simmons
''Melanie and Steve Rasnic Tem have given us a conclusive demonstration that the best horror is open-ended, exploratory, and emotionally truthful. The Man on the Ceiling grabs the genre by the scruff of the neck and lifts it right off the ground.'' --Peter Straub
''The Man on the Ceiling is one of the most remarkable pieces of fiction published this year.'' --Ed Bryant, Locus Magazine
WINNER OF THE WORLD FANTASY AWARD, THE INTERNATIONAL HORROR GUILD AWARD & THE STOKER
The Man on the Ceiling is the Tems' stunning semi-autobiographical short story about living with the devastating fears that lurk in our everyday lives. An examination of common dreads that will haunt you every time you see a shadow cross a wall or hear a noise in the dark, especially in the safety of your own home. On Ellen Datlow's and Paula Guran's Recommended Reading Lists for 2000, this novella appeared in both Datlow and Windling's Years's Best collection and Steve Saville's Year's Best Horror Collection. This was a 500 copy limited edition chapbook signed by the authors.
