    I was thinking more along the lines of slipcases for the older titles like you guys are thinking about doing for the U.S. editions but I also understand that you guys are in the publishing business, not the slipcase business. And I'm not sure there'd really be a market here for it as I'm sure not everyone (King fans) even collect U.K. editions. Plus the older U.S titles are probably on hand for measurements whereas the U.K.s, not so much. But you guys must be doing something right. Browsing through eBay for shits and grins; folks are asking almost double the issue price. Not sure if they are actually getting it though.

    Yeah, it's the per unit cost of production that makes it tough for us to produce slipcases for the UK editions. When we were announcing brand new SK titles from the UK publisher, we'd just barely get enough orders to keep the price reasonable for the UK slipcase. We don't want to charge a "crazy" amount for a slipcase, you know? I'm sure some collectors wouldn't mind the higher prices and would understand how production costs work (less volume = higher cost to us that has to be passed along in the form the retail price), but a lot of the more "casual" SK fans lose their minds over the pricing and it becomes a hassle for Mindy.

    So doing slipcases for the older UK titles probably wouldn't generate enough orders to keep things reasonable, unfortunately. I, personally, really like my UK hardcovers, though!

    I hear ya, Brian and appreciate the personal reply; being a fellow King nut and all . I like a lot of the UK hardcovers (not all) vs. the US hardcovers myself but I only have a few on hand as I'm just starting my UK collection. If you want to get crazy and make me some one off UK slipcases, I'll foot the bill!

    Dan/Brian - With the recent move to clean out the warehouse, have you guys by any chance come across any extra traycases for Legacies? My copy has a damaged case and would love to upgrade.

    Another use for the CD red slipcase. Perfect fit for October Dreams II although an orange or black would be a better match.

    Few more slipcases from JW. The UK The Fireman slipcase will fit the US edition as it's only slightly shorter. The UK EOW slipcases will not fit the US trade.

    I have recently received a CD slipcase from the secondary market for a trade edition and it's lovely (Doctor Sleep).

    Brian/Dan - I don;t suppose that you have any slipcases for US Trade HC first Stephen Kings lying around that are not for sale on the website?

    I don't think so. We usually keep that stuff up until we run out.
