    The Dragon Griaule by Lucius Shepard (Subterranean Press) deluxe trade edition inscribed personally to you.
    More than twenty-five years ago, Shepard began a series of stories about a dormant, not quite dead dragon measuring 6,000 feet from end to end. Over the years, Shepard revisited the world in several independent narratives that have illuminated the Dragon's story from a variety of perspectives. Now, all the stories plus a new short novel "The Skull," have been published in one volume.
    Also, ebook and paperback of Fearful Symmetries when they're published.
