This was a while back, and I can't remember exactly when... but it was late September sometime. It was a GOOD trip. Not everything fits the Halloween theme... but a lot of it kind of does, so here we go!
|Not off to a great Halloween-y start, I'll grant you.|
See more after the jump!
This luchador guy is from El Tigre. He's wearing a mask. Like people at Halloween! This counts. He was .99 cents. I like luchadors. I'm actually a pretty big sucker for stylistic cartoons that have been made into Happy Meal premiums.
Another collection of Short Horror stories that I neglected to include in my collection of short Horror stories a few posts back. Because I saved the picture in with the ones from this Quick Stop. This looks pretty great though. A Creepy Company by Joan Aiken cost me .99 cents.
A Playmobil dragon. I don't need to defend this one. It's a frikkin dragon. .99 cents.
The UFO Phenomenon by TIME/LIFE books Mysteries of the Unknown series. I looked so hard for a sign of any other books from this series the day I found this one. I paid 2.99 for it. I found no others. It was if they had been... abducted. Or bought. Or just not donated to Goodwill at all... But I'm thinking abducted.
There's a Hex... there's a Wood. Close enough. Look at the guy on the cover. Diana Wynne Jones's Hexwood set me back 1.99. Haven't read it yet, but I KNOW it's got to be Halloween-y. Trust me.
The final item from this Quick Stop is The Further Adventures of Batman which I used to own as a kid, shortly after the Tim Burton Batman movie was released. I'm justifying its inclusion because it includes one of my favorite Joe R. Lansdale stories: "Subway Jack" which features the God of the Razor. More than a few of the Batman stories in this collection are disturbing and horrific and actually really great Halloween reading. I was really pleased to rediscover this book for .99 cents.
The Kissyfur Treasury... I... um... yeah. Kissyfur. .99 cents.
Not as strong an ending as I was hoping for, but all in all not a total failure of a Quick-Stop. I'll be back soon with more Ghoulish Goodwill Goodies. Until then, Happy Haunting!
