    Was it that bad? That was a set that I had wanted to get at the time, but couldn't swing financially. It was a major regret at the time, but I forgot all about it.

      The set was supposed to have a slipcase, no slipcase, no refund, no explanation. Full of clerical/editorial mistakes and as you noted, it cost a bit of money. We'll see about the Pines!!

        Just placed my preorder for the Crouch and the Garton books. Am excited for these titles and hope that Gauntlet/Borderlands does them well!

          I’m currently reading BORDERLANDS 7, and the typos and formatting issues within give me pause, no matter how much I want THE PINES trilogy (and DRACULAS). Then I see F. *Paulo* Wilson mentioned on the Gauntlet promo page for PINES, and it’s just...just...tiring and wearisome. I don’t know what I’m going to do yet. I’ve waited years for a limited of THE PINES...it’s a shame I can’t see this as a must-buy.

            I remember reading Submerged, and the number of typos was just unreal. It was so bad that I joked about CD needing a new proofreader, and they said it was Tom Monteleone's wife who proofread the book. Between that and the issues I've had with recent Gauntlet books, I doubt I'll be ordering anything.

              I just popped over to the Gauntlet website, to check which pre-orders were available per today's newsletter, and as soon as I clicked the pre-order page link, my Norton went crazy.....blocked the page, and started a few dozen alerts that they had stopped a malicious program. Be careful if you surf over there....

                I got an error earlier, but Gauntlet's site is always glitchy. Here's a link to the Pines ordering page - https://www.gauntletpress.com/product/pines/

                  The site is back up now, and I placed my order for Pines. I tried doing it earlier and the site died. I wasn't super worried since the newsletter did say pre-orders would be available on the 31st . . .

                    I hear you. Do I want to spend $65 for a book that’s going to be unreadable when I have a very nice paperback copy with very few typos that I paid $7 for

                        Can't speak to the issues with Borderlands; however, the reason F. Paul Wilson is mentioned on the Gauntlet promo page for PINES is because he is writing an afterword for the book and is signing the lettered edition.

                          Yes, I know. My point in mentioning that — and highlighting a misspelled “Paulo” in my original post — was that Paul was misspelled as Paulo throughout the promo. I just checked, and it’s now been corrected, but is still misspelled as Paulo in the DRACULAS promo (and the “F” is missing in the SIGNALZ promo). It’s a small thing, but symptomatic and illustrative of the proofreading and formatting issues both Gauntlet and (especially) Borderlands has these days, and why after suffering through a barrage of it in BORDERLANDS 7 I’m a bit wary to order any of these new releases, even though the content appeals to me. If they can’t even produce typo/error-free promo pages for their product(s), what confidence can I have that the product itself will be free of a litany of errors and typos and worthy of its premium pricetag?

                            This is exactly how I feel. I want to be excited about these announcements, but I feel like it’s a gamble. Especially because there’s been nothing from Borderlands and/or Gauntlet addressing these valid concerns. A simple “hey, this has been an issue and we’re doubling down on making sure that this isn’t a problem moving forward” would go a long way.
