    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'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.

    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.

    Thanks for posting this, Martin. I've finally read the novel, and it's outstanding.

    Anyways, I hope everyone can get a copy and make me jealous with pictures!
    I would assume that lifetime subscribers will get a 'PC' copy of Misery. The suggestion on the dark tower forums was that the previous buyers of EOTD would get first shout on Misery. Since there are only 185 copies for sale it seems likely that these will be gone by the time orders are open to the public.

    Hoping I get a penguin, but my chances seem pretty low. I should have gotten out of bed when I saw the e-mail come through! DOH!

    I’ll throw in my congratulations as well. This looks like it’ll be a pretty sought after edition!

    1) I only own one S/N SK novel - but it's a PC copy (but I won it right here on CD so that's cool!)
    2) I do own two signed editions of Sleeping Beauties but those aren't going to be as nice as Misery
    3) Paul does some amazing things with his products.
    Congratulations, I have no doubt it will be a stunning edition. Pretty sure I will just go for the Artist edition.

    These editions look gorgeous. I love what Paul has been doing. It’s just too bad I can’t buy it all.

    The eternal struggle.
