    It is going to be AWESOME, I think, but there's just still moving pieces to fall into place. We've changed the focus a bit in a way that I think will make it even more exciting for collectors. It will be a BIG book with a ton of great stories and a ton of people signing the signed editions.

    I think it will be well worth the wait and I wish I could tell you more, but we really need to hear back from the last contributors first. We don't like announcing a partial TOC because A) some people think it's final no matter how we preface it and they feel let down because "their" author isn't there (even though he or she might be in the works!) and B) to an author or agent who is still negotiating, it can look like a "pressure tactic" to make them make a decision. We don't do that.

    I've also made a rookie mistake by saying "we'll announce the TOC (this summer, etc)" which I shouldn't have done. I was sure the last pieces were almost in place and we definitely would be able to announce, but I shouldn't have put a time frame out there. I was just excited and want to announce details!

    Thank you to all of our collectors who have shown tremendous patience on this one. We really do appreachiate your support. We have the best collectors in the world.

    Ha, I will post the moment I can. This has been a complicated project from the beginning and we shouldn't (obviously!) have announced it when we did. I'm glad we mostly don't make that mistake anymore!

    Ordered a copy of the limited edition while I was on vacation at the cabin! I had a gift certificate that I was planning to hold on to for the 3rd book in Cronin's series after The Twelve, but I just couldn't pass up ordering the signed edition of this with the 12 sale the other day. Luckily I had enough of a reception to use the internet on my phone! Looking forward to seeing the ToC and seeing who will sign it

That's balanced by the fact there is going to be a trade edition and $175 for a limited is rather steep in comparison to what most of CD's other limiteds go for.

    In short, your guess is as good as mine! Though I can't wait to find out!
    Note that it may actually be numbered even though we haven't finalized the print run yet. Part of the run decision depends on who is willing to sign and how many copies they'll sign. But due to the price point, we're still in a "safe zone" even if it needs to be a somewhat smaller than normal run!
