    I have not yet read Dan Simmons and looking at the reviews online Summer Night's been getting rave reviews. Might just bite on this but arrgghh so many books on my list but so little funds left lol.

      Dark Harvest of course already did, but that won't stop another publisher (SubPress?) for having another go.
      I wouldn't mind in the least.

        Some info from Dan's site on the Dark Harvest edition of Carrion Comfort - http://www.dansimmons.com/art/dan_art3.htm

        Here's Dan's intro to the 20th Anniversary Edition, where he talks about the speculator who bought 1,000 copies of the Dark Harvest edition - pretty funny http://preview.tinyurl.com/jgpyuwq

          I may have some issues with Dan, but that is both awesome and hilarious.

            Ok, everybody loved Summer of Night, but any thoughts on A Winter Haunting? It's been a while since I read it, but I don't recall liking it too much.

              Same here. I did read it, but it didn't make much of an impression.

                Yes, also not a fan of that sequel. I understand it was a book all its own with its own themes, etc. that were very different than SUMMER OF NIGHT -- but even approaching it as standalone, so to speak, it wasn't one of my favorite Simmons, by any stretch.

                  I actually read winter before summer. Have the same feeling. I am passing on Summer as it is way to pricey .

                    It's such a different book and Summer of Night casts such a long shadow. It's been a long while since I read it, but I remember it being okay. I also read it before I had read Summer so I don't think I got a lot of the back story. I've been meaning to revisit it again. Maybe after a reread of Summer.

                      IMPORTANT SPECIAL OFFER FOR COLLECTORS:
                      If you order Summer of Night through our online store before NOON on Thursday, you'll qualify for a free $60 coupon code that can be used toward the purchase of ANYTHING on our website including items that normally cannot be ordered with coupons! If you've already placed your order, don't worry, you're already on the list for the special coupon deal! These coupons will be emailed out next week after we confirm our orders. Thank you!


                      So I placed my order. I might have to move things around a bit to make it work with my budget--and finally get around to selling some doubles of books that I have-- but in the end it is SUMMER OF NIGHT.
                      Have the coupons for this already been sent out? I never received one.

                        Huh, they should have been, but I'm not seeing them in the master outbox, so I'll resend the note to Mindy to load up and send today or tomorrow! Thanks for the heads-up!
