Just appeared on th EP Website:

http://www.eastonpressbooks.com/leather/product.asp?code=2820

I doubt this is the "definitive" version, since that's not the version that won the Stoker, Hugo, and Nebula, but it is signed.

It's not on the site yet, but they have an edition of The Lair of the White Worm and The Princess Bride out (in the catalog I got, but not posted yet.) 54.70 for each.

I had to search to find this thread, but some news from the EP front.

Every year EP brings out 10 books that readers have requested and 2013's list has been compiled, though not posted on the website yet. Two of 2013's books will be Ghost Story by Peter Straub and The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury. I'm not certain if any of this whill have art in them, but they aren't signed. Each one is $54.70.

These two books are available now (but as I said, they have not been posted on the website and they haven't appeared in a catalog yet) but I have the item #s if anybody is interested:

Ghost Story 2585--040
The Illustrated Man 2585--039

These two books are available right now. I have GS in the mail, should be here by Wednesday, and IM will be sent next month. EP does ship internationally.

I only own 2 Easton Press books, but they are beautiful and if I had the money and the room, I would build a library of Easton Press. Might have to look into Ghost Story, even though I have a signed trade and the signed Hill House limited alread It's just one of those books.....

Easton Press mailed out there new list of 2013-2014 "Reader's Choice" books that will be out later this year. Classics, stuff like that; but of interest might be:

Pebble in the Sky by Isaac Asimov, his first novel (#2878-003)

Time and Again by Jack Finney (#2878-002)

I believe the last three digits ofthe item number refers to the order they will be published in. Which means the the one I'm interested in, The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco (2878-001) will be published first! The first one will be available on 30Sept2013.

Now I just have to come up with $65...

Went on a bit of binge with EP. Oops!
Already subscribe to the 100 Greatest but the reader choice books this year are good. Got Time and Again, Lorna Doone, The Robe, and Name of the Rose.
Really torn on getting either The Black Swan or Dangerous Liaisons.

Sweet! The name of the Rose doesn't come out til May, so I'm gonna hold off for a while on ordering it. I have the cash, but they won't take it out until the books ships--and I may not have it then).

Currently, EP has in stock a signed edition of Fight Club bu Chuck Palahnuik. Probably no bells and whistles,but there may be a frontis art piece. The description doesn't say.

Squire, why did you have to mention Fight Club? Now I have to buy another book that I can't live without, and I was trying to at least somewhat behave myself until Monday's announcement. But I am excited to see an EP edition of the book--CP is one of my favorite authors.

I also picked up the signed limited Cat's Cradle from EP a few months ago, and it's beautiful.

Too true, Too true. Like Ghost Story. I go out of my way for a new edition of that one.

RonClinton
02-11-2015, 03:14 PM
I picked up a copy the morning Easton announced it. Those who are thinking of also picking up a copy may want to hurry...if there are any left, I don't expect this one -- the only American hardcover, other than the Centipede edition, and signed -- to last very long. I tell you, too, if I was a betting man, I'd buy a few more copies to flip for a significant return in a couple years. It's the rare exception where one can accurately predict a small-press item will increase in value...I believe this is one of those times. We'll see if time proves me right.

But since my budget is finite and my wants nearly infinite, I can't indulge such predictions. :(

Though I've read infamous bits and pieces of it over the years, I've actually never read the entire thing from start to finish, so this'll be a nice way to do that.

^I agree, but I have yet to jump on it. My problem is ordering from Easton direct. It sucks ordering in Canada and their packaging even worse...

bugen
02-12-2015, 04:47 AM
Theli I'd try being a middleman if you think it might help. EP packaging is sparse, but if it's handling issues across the border I can repackage their shipment in a more padded box. It's got to travel from coast to coast to reach me in LA but I've yet to have one damaged in transit.

If you really want a book I'd hate to see the barrier for any of my peeps to be shipping. Which is, of course, the position that Easton should be taking. I think they're just old, set in their ways and resistant to change.

Theli
02-12-2015, 05:01 AM
^Yeah I agree. What can you do though? Thank you a million times over for the offer! Luckily I'm not too far from the border and I just talked to a buddy recently that goes down about once a month to visit in laws and pick up packages, so I can always ask him to pick it up from his PO Box by the border if I decide to take the plunge.

Well my collection is rather slim right now, just a few choice books that I have picked up here and there. Of what I own The Mabinogion with illustrated by Alan Lee is definitely my favourite, just packed with art. I also have a nice signed edition of Dracula with art from Rick Berry that is quite nice, though because of the paste-down style that the art is applied to the pages, I'm not so sure I would count it amongst my favourites. The Dead Zone is nice too, simply because of King but honestly it doesn't stand out that much amongst the rest of the Sci-Fi classics collection.

As for ones I covet, I'd love to add their slipcased and illustrated The Princess Bride to my collection (though I wish it was signed), along with Wagner's Ring Cycle housed in a double slipcase bound in white leather with art from Arthur Rackham, as well as La Morte D'Arthur with art from Arthur Rackham, and lastly I'd love to add the Tolkien books to my collection, Lord of the Rings (big fan of Michael Hague), The Hobbit, Beowulf and The Fall of Arthur.

I prefer their editions with more art, but they are just classy books regardless.

Just picked up the signed HC of Card's ENDER'S GAME, a book they just put back up for order...leather, sewn-in ribbon bookmark, gold gilt, etc..nice production of a book that I've always wanted to read, and so thought this would be a nice way to do so.

It's not on their website yet, but one of the Reader's Choice books for 2016 will be Logan's Run, unsigned. It won't have the bells and whistles of the CP edition, but for those of us who missed it there...
