    (If Dan's theory about the numbering is correct.)

      That would really tick me off. Sorry and not to cause issue but I would be bothered by this.

        I somehow had delude myself into believing that my inferior 2nd edition was actually preferable.

                Mine also had a sticky note, this is at least the 2nd book and maybe more that have come like that for me. I just blame my post stroke brain for the forgetting. It's easier that way.

                I hope it has your number. I did notice when Igot my copy, there was a sticky note on the cover with my number written on it. I haven't had that before. So maybe they only printed 350, but they are numbered for the people who have been buying all along and those numbers are non-sequential. The more I think about it, the surer I am that everyone will get their number.

                  All of our copies had sticky notes on them. Which was super handy as we usually go through and put sticky notes on them for our reference.

                    I've been collecting this series since day one, and I have a few with different numbers, thanks to some mishaps that it was more trouble to fix than it was worth to me, but I have the same # for most of them. I was VERY irritated when I first read that there were only 350 copies of this one, then I got over it, then I read that there were really 500 copies, and I was puzzled, but OK, and then I read that there were two different limitations, and I felt, rightly or wrongly, that it seemed just a tad shady. My OCD about limited edition books has pretty much gotten to the level where barely anything bothers me anymore, but knowing about all of the strangeness associated with this particular book is making something buzz in the back of my brain, like a book-fanatic Spider-Sense.

                      Sorry for setting that off. I get why you might see it as a little shady. To mess around with the limitation number can make a collector wonder about the actual print run. And this is something the publisher can avoid with two sentences. Something like: NOTE: due to a change in the print run, some limitation pages state 350 copies and some state 500. The actual print run is 500 copies for this edition.

                      Maybe that note exists somewhere in the email or on the order page, but I didn't see it. Tom probably also didn't count on some asswipe raising the issue in the CD forum.

                      I don't think anything shady is going on here.

                        My number is 80, came with the sticky note, and the limitation page states 350. I'm good with whatever the reason is since I received my number.

                          I'm the same - well, except mine came numbered 105, which if memory serves right, is the same as the others. I've never actually checked if I'm being completely honest.

                                Looks like The Complete Short Fiction of Peter Straub is up as well.

                                Wish the cover design was a little more dynamic.
