I'm not someone who is overly concerned about matching numbers but if it's something that's offered go along with it.
    I have really enjoyed this series. It will actually be hard for me to pass on the next.

      Though I'm a little behind on this thread, I thought I'd post that I'm okay with a Blake Crouch book in the series. I'm kinda surprised we haven't seen more limited editions of Mr. Crouch's books being published.

        With my only exposure being the Pines trilogy I am really looking forward to reading more from him.

          This kinda thing is right up my OCD alley with a matching set. I'm down for 'em as long as they continue to produce them.

            The remaining 7 titles in Series III will be published every 2 or 3 months by Borderlands Press. You can get on their mailing list to keep track of each new book which will include titles by Ramsey Campbell, Owen King, Robert R. McCammon, Blake Crouch, and others.

            And here's the link (super low starting bid!):
            https://www.ebay.com/itm/LITTLE-BOOK....c100010.m2109

            Does this individual have reliable information?? Should the list be updated?
            So this one ended with no bid's. It has now been re-listed for the same price with a reserve but quickly has a bid.

              That's been listed with a reserve for several weeks now. I had the highest bid at $54 back in February, but it was under the reserve. Bid a couple of times in the weeks since then, but it's never gotten above the reserve ($54 was the highest I've ever seen it get though).

                That makes sense. He will just keep listing it until the buyer comes along.

                  I've never understood reserves. Either start the bidding close to the absolute lowest you're willing to take for it or gamble and see what the market gives you. I know eBay isn't an accurate indicator of true market value, but a reserve is a huge turn off for me as a buyer--the bidding just feels like pointless guesswork.

                  Though I completely understand why sellers do it (I'd be PISSED if I sold all those Little Books for $20). So I'm not blaming the seller in this case for wanting to protect themselves. I just don't want to bid around in the dark. It would maybe make sense if the reserve wasn't blind. Like if we knew the minimum then we could set our expectations. But again, that brings me back to my original point--start the auction where it will truly start.

                    It's a sales tactic meant to draw attention. More people are likely to watch the item or bid if there's a low starting bid. So then you'll have maybe twenty people fighting over it (and potentially getting the price higher) as opposed to only having one or two people watching it at a higher starting price.

                      I NEVER bid on something with a reserve. I completely agree on setting the min bid around what you "need" to sell it for. When I big at or past the min, I expect to know I am winning the auction. I don't want to put in a bid and then learn it's not quite high enough to count.

                        I got my Campbell Little Book and I'm excited to see that it's a single story volume. The Edward Lee Little Book was the same and I really like that set-up.

                          ALSO I noticed the Ramsey Campbell Little Book has a limitation of 350. What about people who have been collecting the series with numbers 350-500? All the previous books with runs of 500 or 600 have sold out. Iím sure Tom knows what heís doing. But I canít see how he would know that those last 150 customers wonít want/care about matching numbers.

                              Ouch! Well maybe itís one the two following things:
                              1. A signature page error. It should read 500
                              2. BP isnít numbering them according to quantity. They have 350 subscribers (people who have bought all or multiple Little Books up to this point) and while those numbers appear everywhere, BP can accommodate those customers by simply giving them their number and still keeping the actual limitation to 350.

                              Did you get yours? And did it have the correct number?

                                When Series III was announced, it was done so with a limitation of 350. It seems demand was higher than that, as every other book has had a larger limitation (I think). However, depending on how contracts were handled, Tom's hands may have been tied for this one.
