Not sure of the exact page count yet because Glenn is still figuring out the artwork, but it should be somewhere in the same range as the other FOUR books like Four Ghosts, Four Killers, and Four Zombies. Of course, I just realized those page counts aren't on the site, so I'm going to add them now. :)

So the answer is, we're aiming for between 100 and 140. :)

Definitely going to get this. Just need to decide between the limited and the lettered editions. I was set to get the lettered until I realized that I have both Four Ghosts and (will have) Four Zombies in the limited edition. Now I have to decide if I want to break up the "set" and go with the lettered. Of course I could always get both...

That said, after talking to Glenn and our designer, it's looking more like 150 to 175 is possible!

I think a couple of them are yet to be shipped so simple mail fraud should suffice.

We typically have extra's. So you will most likely be able to pick up a copy of Four Killers and Four Zombies when they are released. That said Four Ghosts could be a bit more difficult.

Well of course! It's always easier to grab a zombie or killer than to hold onto a ghost. (Runs from the food being thrown at the stage....)

Yes that is what I thought. thought. Now on to Four Vampires then Four werewolves the list could be endless.
I believe we're at:

Four Ghosts

Four Killers

I hope the print run goes to at least 287, that way I can get matching numbers for my copy of Four Ghosts and then get Four Zombies for that number as well and then hope that some lovely person here has copy 287 of Four Killers for sale or trade, then I could have all four matching numbers :cool:

Is this book an oversized 7 x 10 as a lot of CD books are, or is it smaller? :confused:

I am not sure on this, but I would assume smaller. The same size as the rest of the "Four" books.

Congrats on that sell out! Will be ordering this later. I am quite sure there will be over 287 copies ordered, so you should have no problem with the matching numbers Tommy. I know during the 4 day order window (Or was it a different number of days for that one?) there were close to 600 copies of October Shadows ordered, so I am sure it'll at least be something similar to that.

Very glad to hear you aren't a zombie! The urge to collect books diminishes when you become a zombie. That said, the urge to collect human braiiiiins can increase, depending on what kind of zombie you are. ;)

The link to this in the production updates actually leads to Four Zombies, not Four Halloweens! The link in preorders leads to the right page though.

Anyway, I am curious what the final numbers for this were?

I believe there was first going to be another book published, which I pre-ordered as well.
That one took years and years not to get done, so I cancelled my order.
Then it was announced there would be a different book, from a different author (??) as well.
Which is this one.

Forgot the original title...

Yes, that was Oktober Shadows (later changed to 10/31: The Butcher's Tale). I actually still have that on order and we are in year 6 waiting for it. It's ridiculous.

Oktober Shadows is indeed the title I was referring too. I had ordered both the lettered and limited editions, but decided to cancel both orderers when it took too long.
I seem to remember though that there was talk about the book being cancelled and another (Four Halloweens?) would be published instead.
But from what I'm reading here it seems Oktober Shadows will still see the light of day?

It has indeed been a lot longer than I thought since the last update. I think we've been gun shy about sending out the updates we've been receiving on our end, but I have been in touch with Norman frequently and he IS working to make this into something that was worth your time and money. If he can finish everything up by April, we could still have the book out for this Halloween. So we will send another update when we're a little more sure the information we have it solid. Thanks for your patience!
