The Great Pumpkin has brought me a Halloween treat. For the record, I have been waiting for this book to arrive for five years. Yesterday, in my sci-fi bin at work, I unearthed this beautiful new, single bound edition of the entirety of Mervyn Peake’s gorgeous Gormenghast Trilogy. I’m. So. Geeked.
This if my favourite series of book ever. Period. End of story. It’s my deserted island book.
Years ago I loaned my copies out to an ex. They were a casualty of war and I have been looking to replace them ever since. I’ve scoured the Internet for hardcover editions, omnibus format, what have you. This is exactly what I wanted and I didn’t even know it was coming. I’m thrilled.
Expect a reread. I want you folks to know how awesome this series is. If you can’t wait for me, go pick it up. This volume sells for $40 at various outlets. You should go buy it.
Love. This made my Halloween, Great Pumpkin. Thank you!
