official hype: "Easy to use and searchable digital archive with every issue, every page (even the ads!) of Rolling Stone from the last 40 years on 4 DVD-ROMs: Over 1,000 complete printable issues, cover to cover – that’s over 98,000 scanned pages, completely indexed and searchable. This edition includes the powerful Bondi Reader and search engine (Mac or PC). Find and read any award winning cover story, interview, photo or review in seconds. The browse-by-cover feature lets you visually locate any issue by its cover – simply click the cover and the issue opens to read. Custom reading lists let you organize the collection any way you want. PLUS, a photo-filled, 208–page page companion coffee table book providing a vivid behind-the-scenes look at the magazines history, from birth to today. All packed in an attractive slipcase." we say: This is a serious document of an era and its aftermath that spans at least two generations. The search function allows all readers the ability to focus on what they want to when they want to, but it's also possible just to read the issues as they appeared. While it is certainly true that Rolling Stone grew progessively commercial as it aged, it started out strong, and while it surely printed a lot of fluff it also showcased quite a bit of worthwhile writing by the likes of Hunter S. Thompson and many others. And now we have this massive archive for sale at an amazing 70% off it's original price. Think of it, over 1,000 issues of Rolling Stone for less than you'd pay for 10 issues on the newstand; in other words, 100 issues for less than the price of 1!!! SUPPLIES ARE LIMITED
The lead story in this collection of three novellas by America's reigning master of the form, "The Little Kingdom of J. Franklin Payne" is an amazing tour de force for which the life and work of Winsor McCay serves as a springboard into a hallucinatory trip inside the mind of a powerful and obsessive creativity. We believe that this work stands to be especially appreciated by comics aficionados, and as we just secured a large quantity of the UK edition at a special price (and as the US edition is now, while not, technically, out of print, available only in a print-on-demand edition) we felt it was appropriate to bring it to our customers' attention at this time. The two additional novellas that fill out this volume are every bit as original, unique and intense: "The Princecss, the Dwarf and the Dungeon" is a magnificent deconstruction of the fairy tale that reveals its origins and functions -- social as well as psychological; and "Catalogue of the Exhibition: The Art of Edmund Moorash (1810 - 1846)" is one of the most singular works in the annals of fiction -- a turbulently romantic tale presented in the form of, as the title has it, the catalogue for an exhibition of paintings.
