The novel reprints are out

I was at Wal Mart tonight and they had the two Martin Caiden books and two of the Max McCoy reprint books tonight. I don't know about the McGregor books but they Dinosaur Eggs and Secret of the Sphinx.

Yeah, I was at Waldenbooks, and they had a display at the front of the store with the 2 Caidin novels and the Max McCoy books, with the exception of "The Philosopher's Stone". I bought all five. I just need to find the MacGregor novels.

Gah! That's the only one I want. My old childhood copy is all tattered and torn. The cover is barely holding on with a few pieces of tape.

My Borders had a nice Sky Pirates display for the books.I already have them so there is no need for me to purchase them again but I do need to get that display.

I knew this would happen. In any case, I've got them all already and can spend more cash on other things.. like those Topps cards!

I don't know what the display is but if it has Indy on it then I want it too. As for the books I thought the same thing. I already have them why do I need to get them again? The only difference is the covers. The new novels have the Indiana Jones logo embossed on the cover so it is raised from the surface so that is kinda cool.

The first printings of several of the books had embossed covers as well. I've got vintage printings of all twelve of the MacGregor / Caidin / McCoy books, and most or all of the MacGregor ones had embossed covers when they first came out, though they dropped embossing for the later printings.

Slight tangent: I know that back in the day, Kilian Enterprises, which produced a number of commemorative "one-sheet"-style posters for Star Wars and Indy anniversaries, and also offered a poster of the cover art of the first new Star Wars novel that came out around that time (Heir to the Empire), had considered or announced they'd offer big posters of the cover art from these Indy novels (or at least the first one, Indiana Jones and the Peril at Delphi), but I *think* they wound up never doing them. Does anyone here know if I'm wrong, and they actually did offer nice posters of the Indy novel cover art?

I was at my local Albertson's (a supermarket chain down here in Florida) and saw nearly every Max McCoy novel there! I couldn't believe it!

I went to my local borders and their computer said they have them all in stock for like $7 or $8, but I couldn't find them and neither could the person that worked there.

So I walked into Walmart that night just to pick up some things and just happened to wander down the book section and they had ALL of them for $4. I went home happy that night.

I have a handful from years past. I have one I paid 50 cents for at a library sale. Borders is a bit irritating, I'm finding. Each store seems to have it's own map and who knows what is where. One store had a big display on a wall, the other had them all displayed in the horror/thriller section.

Are all the books coming back into print? I actually bought a few of these used just a few weeks ago because most were out of print. I wish I would have known that they were about to be back into print. I would love to get a new copy of Peril at Delphi, Seven Veils, and the Unicorn's legacy.

The Rob McGregor ones are definitely worth it. McCoy's are pretty good too. Just stay away from Caiden. I tend to ignore the existence of his ones, even though I own them as well.

But Caidin gave us The Six Million Dollar Man (Cyborg). Maybe that's why.

I was totally surprised when I saw Dinosaur Eggs, Secret of the Sphinx and the 2 Caiden novels at Barnes & Noble tonight. I have all of the books already with the exception of the McCoy ones (except Hollow Earth) so now I just gotta find Philosopher's Stone.

What's funny is that a friend asked me today if there were any Indiana Jones books. I told him yes, but that they were hard to find. And that he could could get some from the library. Now I can tell him they are available at the bookstore.

Does anyone know if all of the books are being reprinted? I still haven't seen Peril At Delphi nor is it available on Amazon.

Hey Y'all. I bought Hollow Earth tonight. Is it a good book? I know nothing about it or the author. Thanks!

Well, seeing how those won't be shipping until may 20th that suggests to me that they aren't the old editions but the reprints, which would mean that the ten novels listed are indeed being reprinted and that would include Peril at Delphi.

Are they reprinting the Film Trilogy Novelizations?

I've always wanted to read the one for ToD since a friend told me Willie is actually rather quiet in it.

Yup; there's a new one-volume edition with all three that I just bought. Can't wait to finish it!

Hollow Earth

Where does this book and author rank in the realm of Indy literature?

Hollow Earth and McCoy? Ranks as one of my favourites, actually. Hollow Earth has a cameo of one other famous character and a certain MacGuffin... Overall, quite enjoyable, at least, I think so.
