    It does look very nice. Would love to own this one.

    Funny because I did the exact same thing.

    I was actually disappointed to see the price of this one as well. Past titles from the Earthling Classics line were around $85; so, I was not really expecting the price of the new titles to be triple that price point. Very disappointing. Hope that this is a one-off in terms of price or I probably won't be able to participate in this line. I could almost grab two Suntup AGE's at that price!
    This sums up my thoughts exactly. I had to double check once I saw the price to see if this was perhaps printed letterpress for that price. No, printed regular offset. Song of Kali- just the regular, numbered edition- from the previous incarnation of this line is a long-time favorite book and edition on my shelf. It was $75 (honestly, a bit pricey at the time). I fear it may be the last of the line for me.

    Yeah, I wish I would have slept in as well. I do enjoy Malerman; however, since SST is also doing a version of this book and since I already have the other Malerman books from their bundle, I will stick with the SST set. Due to spacing and budget issues, I also no longer purchase duplicate titles, no matter how lavish. On a side note, I was actually disappointed to see the price of this one as well.

    I completely forgot that SST is doing a limited of Inspection. I've been getting the SST Malerman's through Camelot so I should be locked in there with my matching number. This makes passing on the Earthling title easier if I go that way.

    I'm in the same boat. It's a beautiful looking book and I'd love to get in on the new Modern Classics line, but that's a huge chunk of change for a book that I've never read.

    I have a handful of other Malerman limited editions, but I've heard very mixed things about this particular title. And while I've enjoyed a good majority of what I've read from him, I don't know how I feel about this particular title.

    I'll have to pass at the moment simply because of Lyra's Books and the Coraline pre-order. I suppose I might swing for this title down the road if it's still available.

    I'm very interested to see how quickly it sells out!
    Their books look beautiful, but I can't even bother with Lyra's at this point. I love all the new publishers and level of creativity that is coming out in the book designs are amazing, but there is only so much I can afford to spend on books. Between Centipede, Thunderstorm, and SST I'm stretched pretty thin as it is. Throw in the random Earthling and Sub Press title and things get dicey on the ol' budget.

On one hand, I haven’t read the book or that much from Malerman and I have four S/L on my shelf from him already…and the book is $250, which quite a chunk of change to drop, especially considering how many books are being pumped out right now as publishers get caught up on the COVID backlog.

    On the other hand, the book looks very nice and I’d like to get in on the ground floor of the reimagined Modern Classics line with the title.

    So…

    Yes, nice-looking book, but not for me. I read it, and liked it, but not enough to buy an S/L edition.

    This is up for pre-order. Beyond my means but looks lovely.

    You got that right my friend. I've been teetering for a few years now and hope I can hang in there.

    Very. Deluxe editions of modern genre classics that (presumably) have never had the limited treatment are safe bets and exciting additions to a collection.
