    Nothing to report just yet. We haven't sent anything new to our main book printer since they closed in early April due to "essential business" restrictions in their state, and they're just getting back to full capacity now. We did start some books at our smaller printer since they were open, but they cannot handle books with bigger trim sizes or multiple editions like this.

We've tried to get on the same page with the author about the bonus features, but he's been so busy with his new projects that we don't think he's had time to get anything together. We might have to go to press without bonus material, simply to get the book finished and to the collectors who have been patiently waiting so long.

    Hi Brian, any update on if youíll be shipping with special material? I know Jeff originally mentioned (years ago) the exclusive content would be ephemera/physical elements, so if youíre not shipping with it is there a chance youíll be able to compile it later?

    Hi CD,

    Was wondering if you have a production update for this title yet? Last update from Brian on 07/16/19 stated that it was in a final round of proofreading to confirm everything has come together (see above). Has that proofreading been finished yet? Am anxious to see this title hit the printer. Also, if I am remembering correctly, this book is supposed to have top-secret bonus features. Were those features ever decided upon or announced; or, will that be something that isn't announced? As always, any info is appreciated.

    I'm not sure about the proof reading. I know the last hold up I remember us talking about was the author still had the sig sheets. I don't know if those have come back yet or not. Brian can hopefully elaborate a bit more when he sees this.

    This is a long shot but I was wondering if the CD lifetime subscriber who holds number 73 would be willing to switch with me when it comes to The Southern Reach Trilogy. I have no idea what number I'll be getting but I'd love to match my SubPress edition of Complete Borne. I totally understand if that's not something you're up for, 73.

    The final designed version of the book has come in at 648 pages, so it'll be a doorstop of a special edition! We only need one more round of proofreading to confirm everything has come together as expected with no glitches or errors introduced during design, and then this title will be ready for the printer. You can see the DJ art from Pablo Delcan here:

    Hi Brian,

    Hope I'm not jumping the gun, but I wanted to check back and see if you have any updates on this title yet? I believe the last update was the cover-art reveal/to let us know the special features were being developed. Since then, haven't seen much movement. I did notice that the production updates page was updated again today; however, it looks like the same blurb as the past few updates for this title. I know you are currently backlogged due to your various printer issues; so, any info on this title is appreciated.
    Totally my fault. I *have* that update and that cover art to post, and somehow just kept missing it when doing updates. I need to finish something else right now, but will circle back to that today!

    Both Dan and I are away from the office this week, but Iíll make sure I get an update on this one next week!

    Well, it took me nearly 30 years to get to this point of heightened awareness...



    Hopefully your personal meditative voyage to bookbuying discretion will be a shorter and less expensive one than mine.
