        If anyone is still looking for a copy, VJ Books has World War Z and The Zombie Survival Guide listed. http://www.vjbooks.com/Max-Brooks-Wo...worl01-ltd.htm

        Just so everyone knows, if you are in the US VJ Books will ship the book bubbled wrapped and in a box. International buyers will get the book in an envelope.

              My lettered editions arrived today. They look pretty nice, but I apparently misread the listing when I ordered them 2 years ago.
              I thought for sure they came with traycases. To be honest, I thought all of the CD lettered editions came in traycases.

              My mistake, since I'm the one who misread the listing, but at $300 I thought it would have at least had a slipcase.

                It sounds like a few Lettered Edition collectors didn't get the email about the change. Here's a link to the latest Lettered Edition update for those who missed it:

                http://www.cemeterydance.com/extras/...ered-editions/

                If you have any questions, Mindy's email address is in that information and she'd be happy to help you out. You can also return these if you're not thrilled with the presentation/production. Mindy can help you with that, too.

                Thanks!

                  I definitely missed that email. Does that mean it was originally listed with a traycase when it went up for pre-order?

                    Yes, that was before we started switching projects to the new style. If you didn't get the email (or even if you did, for anyone else who is reading this thread!), you can return the books if you don't like the production values. We spent more on upgrading the actual books than the traycases would have cost and we were able to publish the edition 4 to 5 years faster than the old style. So far, the feedback has been great.

                      Holy hell! Does making traycases really take that long?

                        When you publish 20 to 40 books per year, it's easy to fall behind on the traycases if your traycase guy has issues for a while. We have one main guy for the style of traycase we use on the standard Lettered Edition. He fell a few years behind at one point and he's a one man shop, so catching up is very hard to do at this point. We've tried nearly a dozen other people and companies and they haven't delivered the quality we expect. If we only published a few books each year, we never would have fallen behind... but we'd also be a very different company if we only published a few books each year!

                          I think the change is great. It'll be nice to see lettered editions see the light of day earlier.

                            Thanks for the insight Brian! Always interesting to hear of the inner workings of CD!
