This is going to be a great addition to my library. Ordered the signed numbered edition and the signed trade.

As I have said before, October Dreams was the best thing to happen to Halloween since the pumpkin and this is even BETTER!!!

Yes and the cover is great. How about a print with each book.:).

If I was good about reading books with all those stories I'd likely be ordering one, but since I am not good about that and some of authors included that I'd read the stories from aren't stories. I'm sure I will end up getting this at some point though, just not now.

Got in on this one, limited. This was a really cool idea, and I wouldn't have thought so, but I found myself enjoying the Halloween memories of Volume 1 nearly as much as the stories themselves.

Me to. The Halloween memories were a great addition. I am sure they will be for this one as well.

Loved the first one, it was the book that brought me to Cemetery Dance, can't wait for the 2nd. I went for the signed/slipcased edition. hopefully I can get a matching number. Great news! And I second the poster idea!!! LOL!!!

I'm still very sorry I never knew about the first one till way after it was published.
I'm looking for a lettered with the portfolio, but so far I've only seen one come up on eBay...
Not sure why I let that one go. Too expensive probably
Still looking though.....

So, yes, when I read the notice about book 2, I just had to order it.
Yes, the lettered.
Now it doesn't say anything about a portfolio.
Dan?? Brian?? Anyone??

I also want a numbered, but hopefully PS-publishing will carry this book as well.
Can save on shipping/import duties.

I went for the signed limited. The lettered would have been nice but there is no way I could swing it. I got a little ambitious this year and might have stretched my budget a little thin. And by "might", I mean "yes, definitely". Been a great year for announcements for CD fans.

Of course, now that I bought the second volume, I need to track down the first. That's going to be a 2015 goal, I think.

Monkey I love that comment you made, "I got a little ambitious this year..." Holy hell what an awesomely understated way to explain the situation this company has enabled us to put ourselves in, as I'm right there with you.

Me too. Between the Bentley Little books and the Stephen King Doubleday books...Well locking the two sets up set me back $600 plus .....but I know I don't have to worry about getting a copy of each and can now go back to saving for the next few books I have on my radar....No I am not saying what just yet... Every time I bring up something someone has to try and entice me right away so for now I am keeping quite.

Good question. I still think they should send a color print of the cover out with every order. It's beautiful.

Wait, wait....It was the Artist's Edition I was hoping for.


This special artist's edition features:

Completely unique binding:
* bound in genuine leather
* custom embossing with raised pumpkin design on cover
* imprinted spine, denoting Artist's Edition
* orange and black page gilding
* orange ribbon page marker
* smyth-sewn with orange/yellow headbands

A handmade custom box:
* wrapped in an embossed orange Pellaq paper by Skivertex
* custom embossed pumpkin design on lid
* lined inside with black felt

A double-matted, framed ORIGINAL piece of artwork:
* by Maine artist, Glenn Chadbourne
* B&W ink drawing

Artist's Edition limited to only 12 copies


It would be awesome if Book 2 would get a similar treatment.

I've seen pictures of the Artist Edition of the first one and it looks awesome. I'm sure it cost a pretty penny, though.

Bugen and bookworm, it's nice to know I'm not the only one in that boat. :D I was able to spring for the Bentley Little bundle when it was announced so that is taken care of. Unfortunately, I couldn't afford the Doubleday AE bundle so I will have to ride the announcement train. I guess that's part of the fun, though!

This is selling fast. No surprise. Now to start guessing at who isn't signing this. The newsletter today said signed by over 95% of the living authors.......like they really needed to tell us the dead ones weren't going to sign....My guess is Koontz and McCammon are NOT signing. Anyone else have a guess?

I would be surprised if Koontz signed, but it would be cool.

like they really needed to tell us the dead ones weren't going to sign

We tried to get them, too, but their schedules just weren't very accommodating!

Still talking to ALL of the living authors about signing, but we're saving Koontz and McCammon for last to accommodate their very living schedules. We'll see!

When you only make twelve, one guaranteed sale is a good start.

I still did not order the numbered edition, as I'm hoping PS publishing will carry this book, which would be cheaper for me.
But so far no news from Pete.

Make that two sales. I'll need one to match the AE of October Dreams on my shelf. Another piece of art from Chadbourne would be great too.

It's fine with me, Brian, to make the Artists Edition a limited of two! :)
Not necessary though - this edition seldom shows up on eBay, so I'm sure those who bought a copy are liking what they've got and won't let go!
Ah, this means, of course, OD II, the AE, should be a limited of 14 copies!

Dan, Brian, Mindy - anyone: why isn't PS Publishing getting any of the trade edition? Shipping from the US to my country will cost a fortune. That's actually the only reason I haven't ordered it yet.

They have an order with us, but maybe they already sold them all? They can always order more if they'd like!

That's probably more of a question for PS. I can't really comment on what they did or didn't order. All that said, I'm not sure we have even shipped the retailer orders yet, we only just finished shipping our customer orders the other day.

If someone has a lettered copy of October Dreams and pre-orders a lettered copy of October Dreams II, will you be able to match the letters?

Possibly. There are a couple situations in which we wouldn't be able to, your best bet would be to email Mindy and tell her which letter you're interested in.

It's beyond me why this book isn't an instant sell-out.
Whenever the first October Dreams makes an appearance on eBay, the asking price is high - especially the limited editions go for a small fortune.
These limiteds are rare and much sought after.
And here we are, many months after the initial announcement of October Dreams 2 - and the limiteds are still available.
I don't get it.

I have a couple theories, but mostly I think the collecting market is just different these days. I have no doubts it will sell out though.

I recently picked up October Dreams letter M and was hoping to get the matching letter for October Dreams 2. Unfortunately M is already taken, so I was wondering if whomever has that letter reserved would be willing to swap.
