    Congratulations, TD -- I'm planning on sharing some of your joy on Monday, but we'll see what's left.

    But after learning I get first crack at Misery AND to matcha my number, it made it entirely worth it.
    After hearing about the matching-number deal on the TDT thread, I had the opportunity on Thursday (?) or Friday to buy the EoTD portfolio to get a guarantee on the numbered edition of MISERY, but like (it sounds like) you, I'm not a buyer of art portfolios...my interest in books starts and ends with Books. Plus, even were I interested in art portfolios, I'm not fanatical enough of a King collector to buy a $300 piece to ensure I can buy a $600 piece. It's nice that you already had that taken care of to begin with.

    I tend to doubt there'll be many numbereds on Monday -- if any -- but am still trying to decide between the Gift/Artist's Edition and the numbered...just in case. I struggle with really wanting a signed copy as it's one of my favorite King works and I do believe that, though the pub. price is high, the limitation is low and the value should minimally hold quite strong...but then conversely understanding that I'm just not a big enough King fan to easily justify the $480 difference for his signature. And, you know, I actually like dustjackets on books, so the Gift/Artist's Edition actually has a bit of a personal bonus for me...so we'll see.

    I grabbed both an artitst's and the signed because I was able to afford it (thank you tax refund and my raise (yes, humblebrag . . .)

    I think the only reason I grabbed the EotD portfolio originally was because Paul offered payments - if it wasn't for that option, I would have skipped it (because $300 was a lot of coin at the time - still is in fact.) I've purchased the CD art portfolios they've been doing for the SK Doubledays and I'm kind of questioning why because I haven't even looked at them - just filed them away on my shelf. Be different if I did something with them - like all of my various prints I have above my desk at home (and soon office at work.)

    Anyways, I think this edition will hold its value quite well - first limited edition of a very popular book, very low print run, and the gorgeous work and craftsmanship that Paul has done so far. Plus the price isn't "that bad" compared to what CD has charged for their SK limiteds.

    I have no doubt the limited will be worth the price being charged. With Gwendy's and Sleeping Beauties limited editions on order I just can't bring myself to spend that much.

    I missed out on Gwendy (and would have passsed anyway) and didn’t have the funds available for Sleeping Beauties.

    I’m hoping an extra copy or two shows up for CDCC ...

    I think that's a safe bet. My guess is that while the trade edition has been out generating amazon reviews, people who already ordered may have decided to pass and cancel. Plus, the book tour put a crop of signed editions on the secondary market so people could get their signed fix that way. I would think this is a special edition that would see a higher number of cancellations than average for CD.

    No way in hell I'm cancelling. But I hope there's one for you if you want one.

    I think this edition will be up there with Centipede's Salem's Lot.

    These are my thoughts exactly. I wound up selling off my two CD Doubleday Portfolios because I realized they just weren’t my thing and I’d wind up spending another $200 or so to keep up the set, merely to have it on my shelf. Much rather have it in the hands of someone who really loves it. I can’t see myself spending $300 on something I’m not that into so I can spend even more money. Makes me wonder if we’ll see some EotD portfolios start showing up on the aftermarket once Misery is behind us.

    I’d love to get in on a Lifetime Subscription plan from a Press. I’ve heard the horror stories from people burned by some of these deals, but when they pay off it’s pretty huge.

    Lettered is SOLD OUT but there will be some numbered copies left ~70 or so I think. Good luck everyone!

    This edition sounds truly out of this world. Alas the cost is not in the cards at this point though... maybe an artist edition. I'm debating.

    I do hope some Eyes of the Dragon art portfolio's start showing up on the market for a reasonable price. I would love to own but can't justify the retail.

    Looks like the lifetime subscriptions sold out fairly quickly. Apparently the lettered Misery are all gone but still some numbered editions available.

    Well, so much for that. By the time I got to click enter to complete my paypal payment, it said it was sold out. I did buy a gift edition, though

    That was brutal. And I didn't get a numbered. I walked away bruised with an Artist edition. Anyone know how many artist editions they're producing?

    By the time I went to bed last night I had decided to try for the limited this morning. Well I clicked as soon as it struck 8:00 and the order went through flawlessly. I received order number 1973, which I found interesting and have secured a limited of Misery!

    It probably didn't help that Stephen King announced it and posted a link to it on Facebook.

    Something about the Chrome browser and the Suntup site didn't mesh. Kept getting a redirect to the same order page and/or a Database Error message. Switching to Internet Explorer worked, though by the time I got it all sorted out the Numbered was gone. Oh well, just as well, given that I was leaning toward the Artist's Edition anyhow (though that 4-payment plan was tempting).

    Congrats to those who got a Numbered.

    Has not been announced, that I've seen...just that it will be based on preorders, will be comparatively limited for a King LE, and that it will be capped. Don't know why Paul just didn't announce what that cap is, though.
