Slade Collections

I had a thought that maybe we could post some pictures and share our Slade collections. Showcase them to our little community here. Anyone interested in this idea?

Well, with no input, I'll start to share my collection of Slade! :D

If anyone objects just stop me.

A shot of all my Slade books, missing the lettered "13 Horrors" which looks the same as the numbered, which is pictured:

And finally...

Signed/Numbered and Signed/Lettered editions of "13 Horrors" which contains the Slade short story "Gross Out Contest":

#68/150 copies:

Letter "D" of 26 copies:

Apparently the lettered copies were all presentation copies, although I've been unable to find who "D" was presented to.
