    I know, I know.....I just have been very busy with school. Marking papers, getting my kids ready for their finals, marking exams, meeting after meeting, etc, etc, etc.
    But, I just passed the 700-page mark and todaybeing Sunday, I'm sure I'll get me some reading done.

      I did not like The Talisman much at all. However, Black House is top-of-the-line King. Great story. So be sure and give it a shot!

        I ordered this set. I've never gotten around to ordering the Grant set and only have The Talisman in paperback, so why not?

          I have first prints of both trades of these books and while I liked the The Talisman, I thought Black House was one of his least successful books. I don't see the need to get these.......Yet.

            Of course you do, Squire.
            And deep down, you know this to be true!

              Well Seip does that mean you are jumping on board or just trying to get Squire to spend his money.I am fine with either one.Lord knows he has caused me some debt in the past..Oh wait I was gonna get most of that stuff anyway.

                And I may order it yet, just not now. Too many other things need my attention. And money.

                  It's funny (to this Dutchman at least) how the ie/ei combination causes (some) a lot of problems in the English language.
                  It's Siep.
                  To be pronounced as?? Someone once pronounced my name as having two syllables: Si-ep (sy-app).
                  Not.
                  It's Seep, but with a short ee-sound.

                        If you buy the artist edition of DT VII along with the T/BH set, it's like getting the T/BH set for only $100.

                        Still, if DMG hasn't been able to sell 3500 sets in almost 10 years, I'm questioning the demand of a new hardcover edition, even though it will be cheaper. If they want to reach the masses at an inexpensive pricepoint, they should do it in paperback.

                        Kind of like how they re-released On Writing when the original was actually selling in the dollar store. I don't get it.

                        But maybe this will somehow increase demand for the Grant set, and it will end up being worth something...

                          I think they're doing a paperback as well, or at least you can pre-order a paperback on amazon.

                                I believe we are getting 1st's, I'm not sure though. Brian will correct me if I'm wrong.
