I'm curious as to how the aftermarket is going to treat the Doubleday series. I recently saw an Carrie AE go unsold for $118. Though Carrie is probably by far the least popular book in the series and eBay sales are incredibly fickle.

    I've been loving the production qualities on these books. Very much looking forward to getting my AE of The Shining, though it will be a longer wait as the remarqued copies always ship last.

    If it's the gift edition you're looking for, there is always the chance CD will wind up with a few extras.

    I think the aftermarket on The Shining is going to be incredible. It'll be better than the CD edition of It.

    I'm not too surprised about Carrie, considering the Gift Edition is still available. But $118 is awfully low for an AE (wish I had seen it!).

    I'm in the same boat as far as the wait goes. I got the Chadbourne remarque. And since this is my first AE, I'm really curious about what number I'll get.

    I received a Maitz Remarque on my GE from CD so I imagine it'll be shipping a bit later. I also ordered an AE from PS. I don't usually double dip, but...

    I already inquired about this possibility on the Out of Print books thread.

    I got an email last Wednesday saying it shipped on the 9th, but I haven't seen it yet. Should I be worried yet?

    My copy arrived yesterday. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet. Does appear to be a pretty hefty edition. And I love the white slipcase.

    Ford Prefect - my shipping notice was sent about a week before it actually left CD so hang in there!

    Shipping notices are sent when the labels are printed, not when the books actually ship. There should be tracking on your shipping notice if the tracking shows no progress (as in it hasn't been received by the shipper yet) that means the label was created, but the package hasn't actually left our warehouse.

    For what it's worth we about 900 single gift editions to go, plus whatever multiples there where, then we have to start in on the Artist editions, so we still have a ways to go on this one.

    Thank you! I figured that was the case so I haven't sweated it too much.
