I ran onto this book at an FOL book nook.  It is signed by both authors, paperback limited to 1000. 

I checked eBay in case it is valuable, and found no sales, current or past.  Lansdale's books seem to sell there fairly well.

I just found the hardback (of 150) offered for $150.

Does anyone have an idea whether this PB is worth listing on eBay?

I once owned a book of stories by Joe Lansdale, and if I had known it would someday be valuable, I still would not have kept it.........while some some stories were  mildly enjoyable, I found that many of them were extremely offensive. There were stories with a lot of violence against women and minorities. I don't remember what I did with the book.........I might have just thrown it away because I remember being horrified by some of the content.

Veil's Visit is a great book, and it was a good find.  The book has been sold out from the publishers for a few years now.  If you check abe books, there are a few selling for $60, but I think that that's a bit high.  I think on eBay you would probably get $30-40, but if there hasn't been one listed in awhile, it might go higher.

Andrew Vachss is my absolute favorite autor. I've never heard of this one, thanks for the heads up.  I'll have to check if the library can get it in, since I couldn't pay $60 for any type of book even if he is my favorite!
