    The only problem, Siep is that if I got the Remarques elsewhere, they wouldn't match my numbered set. I have an artist in mind that has done work for me before. I just thought it'd be kinda neat to have the same artist other then the ones slated do the Remarques for the whole series.
    That would be pretty neat, Brian - depending on the artist.
    If it would be a choice between 100% matching numbers remarqued by a different artist or a non-matching set remarqued by the artists who did the book I would go for the latter option.
    I like matching sets, but a book remarked by someone without a direct link to the book would not be my choice.
    But that's just me, buddy!

    The Shining Gift Edition has been taken off the site as we neared 3,000 copies sold! Tomorrow and Thursday, we will manually check all of our counts to confirm exactly how close we are to all copies being reserved. We didn't expect the slipcased Gift Edition to sell this quickly, but our collectors have clearly spoken! Then, this FRIDAY, we will put the product back on the website and send out one more newsletter. Those last copies will be sold FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. No second chances.

    I agree with that. It is a fantastic edition.

    Personally, if I were you, from The Shining - Pet Sematary, I'd go for what CD is going to offer and try to get a remarqued Carrie/'Salem's Lot elsewhere. You might have to pay more, but this shouldn't be too difficult I'd think.

I have an artist in mind that has done work for me before. I just thought it'd be kinda neat to have the same artist other then the ones slated do the Remarques for the whole series. Something to chew on for sure. Appreciate your input, buddy .

    I'd think that's a reasonable assumption. Just based off of how many more we sell every time we announce another book in the series.

    I'm sorry, Brian, you missed out on remarques for the first two books. Re your dilemma, I think I read somewhere remarques for The Shining will be offered. If you can afford them, I'd definitely go for them!

    My Carrie AE was remarked by just Glenn Chadbourne. I don't think Tomislav Tikulin provided any remarques.
    My 'Salem's Lot will be remarked by both Glenn Chadbourne (even though I was disappointed with his Carrie work) and David Palumbo.
    I didn't go for remarqued portfolios ...have to draw the line somewhere.....

    I've been debating whether to grab a few for a potential return on the secondary market as well.

    That's a big surprise to learn about IT as I mention over on TDT. I wasn't in the game at the time and assumed it as well sold out pre-production. I was being pretty bold with my 48 hour sell out prediction for The Shining; but not by much it'll seem. I agree, Martin. With the release of 'Salem's Lot and then The Shining; folks better not wait around too long when the remaining three are announced. Looks like our poor girl, Carrie is still looking for a date to the prom. What are your guys opinions on how come it didn't sell out and do you think there might be a run on it as well with the popularity of books 2 and 3?

    I think Carrie is actually one of his less popular "early books" -- in the grand scheme of things, compared to 'Salem's Lot or The Shining or The Stand -- and the feedback we've gotten is that some collectors weren't sure what to expect from the set, so they were waiting to order until they had a better idea.

    Brian
    That coupled with the release of CARRIE by PS Publishing almost simultaneously, it seemed like gift/anniversary edition overload and it put some people off.

    I thought it was poor timing, but of course bought both anyway.

I had a chance for the Remarqued Lot portfolio but it came at a bad time and I didn't have the funds . I'll have the standard portfolios with matching numbers to their book counterparts of course. I suppose I could send the books off to be Remarqued and purchase the Remarqued portfolios aftermarket. Which leaves me with a dilemma if a Remarque is offered for The Shining. It'd drive me crazy to just have the one Remarqued and not the others. Which artists Remarqued the first two books when offered by CD? I assume Glenn was one of 'em.
