The paperback for this is crap so I would avoid that at all costs. This is the meals deal! I guess there is a leather bound edition floating around there somewhere which would have been nice but this cloth hardbound book will do nicely in case I need to summon ancient demons to do my bidding.....ha...like I said you can't take this stuff seriously and if you do....well who knows perhaps a demon… Read more
