    LOL! That works for me!

    Remember the gift certificates?
    Plus another 10% off...(CDCC discount)...
    What's 40% of 1000?? (That's what is cost me...)

    Well below the $500 range I'd say....
    In other words: join the 2018 CDCC!!!

    Congrats on snagging a lettered! I wish that I'd had that much saved up on the GCs, but I've been tempted too much by some of the recent offers (here's looking at you, half off OOP lettered edition offer!). I've been contemplating on curbing my spending on various other publishers to be able to save up for the next GC offer. In the long run, it'll give me more flexibility but I'm a weak-willed collector and probably won't stick to it. My fall back plan is to wait until the GC offer is sent out and pester my wife until she lets me spend too much money on GCs...

    I get this. I'm always surprised when I see the PS lifetime subscriber "lettered" editions touted as being more rare and offered for a higher price than the standard numbered with the only difference being what is written in the box. The "standard" (i.e. Non-King) CD traycased lettered editions are nice with the traycase and leather bindings, but I can see where those two differences might not sway for a higher price tag, BUT the non-traycased CD lettered editions are SO different from the limited that I think they are worth the price tag.

    $500 is pretty much my limit and then that's iffy since that would dominate by budget. There are VERY few books that I would consider spending more on. I have a standing agreement with my wife that if a super-deluxe lettered of Ghost Story by Straub is ever offered, I get it regardless of price. (Okay, within reason, but that would be the "budget buster").

    The half GCs are definitely the main draw to the CDCC. But every year when it's announced, it's always the absolute worse timing for me. I haven't been able to take advantage the last two years. If I had had some, I'd probably gone for the lettered. Truth is, they probably would have already been spent on the SB S/L.

    $1000 is a good bit of change, even for a Joe Hill lettered...at that price, it's bound to go slower than the typical lettered, and the gap was large enough between it and the numbered that it made the numbered look much more attractive.

    I wish I had gotten in on this series from the get-go. From the pictures I've seen, these are some nice editions
