Quite a compilation. I saw the email from Sub. Press, but wasn't certain who was signing, if it was just Bill or if other contributors were too. Not in my budget at the moment, but it looks like a tremendous antho.

I keep telling myself that I need to slow down on book purchases but I'm failing that plan miserably.

So yes, purchased.

There're three or four authors who are not signing (two due to death, one health/illness, and one w/ arthritis)...

Same here. Sometimes the lure is just too strong to resist...

I have been trying to buy fewer books with some success. I had told myself if I bought fewer books I could spend more on the ones I buy. So today I spent more on a book than I had ever spent before and then this one gets announced. Been an expensive day!

Quality over quantity, and all that.


So today I spent more on a book than I had ever spent before

Curious minds want to know... :confused:

As I purchased the prior Lonely Road release I did not have to go into the lottery. I purchased the Limited, between the two I spent $575.00 today. Hopefully there will be no offers that I can't resist for a while. Could be worse, the lettered is $1750.00.

I want this, but my budget is tight right now due to other purchases. Maybe copies will be left once the money loosens up a bit...

Hate to pass this up but have to for now. Quite a list of authors.
