    Kinda dig the look of the limited of SEED so I’m thinking about MAYBE trying to get one to match my copy of BROTHER...

    I think the lettered of SEED looks outstanding, but, alas, I shall never be able to drop that amount of dough.

Unfortunately, I don't really want SEED (not at $375, at least), and I don't think it will ever really hold that value to resell and break even. Isn't BROTHER still in print at the published price? At, what- $100 less? Yeah, just checked. So- buyers of SEED- will be keeping it, or reselling at a substantial loss it looks like. Anyway- will probably wait for any official SotL, and hope for a miracle of getting one at the Lottery, most likely.
    Out of the listed posted by Jeremy, the only one I'd probably keep would be SOTL. I'm in the turn 'em and burn 'em category as I can't afford to keep them all. I'm sure my sell of Seed with definitely be at a loss. I'm really hoping the remaining 100 get gobbled up tomorrow morning so I can get somewhat close to retail.

Just my projection.
    I don't know... I feel like there will always be at least one person who forgets or just doesn't have the funds.

    And I don't think Silence will be January. I suppose anything is possible, but it just seems too short of a time since Red Dragon. I picture Harris being a "well let's see how the first one turns out" sort of guy.

    There's a little debate about Paul's hint at the January release. Paul stated in the FB live event that it'll be a "big book." Some have interpreted that as literal physical size. Others, like me, interpreted it as an important work in great demand (like Blood Meridian or Silence of the Lambs). And Paul did follow up his "big book" statement by saying it was alone one that many have asked for.

    Now, it is known that Paul has 3 1000-page books in the pipeline. Months back, he even shared a photo of the page block of one he plans to split into two volumes. So there's some evidence for the physical size argument.

    The only 1000 pager I can think up is Imajica and I don't imagine lots of folks have been asking after that one. I love that book, but it's not a huge deal in the collecting world, I don't think.

    Anyway, I hope the Heinlein set isn't super expensive. I'm running out of money and time.
    This is why I am jumping off the Suntup express. I like to have money and food. If he does the rest of the Red Dragon series and its priced as Red Dragon was I will buy them. Other then that I'm pretty much done with Suntup

    Likely not a lot of point in guessing at the moment, but can't hurt either and fun to speculate.

    Maybe it's a large format edition, but not necessarily a lot of pages? But the second point about a lot of people requesting it would seem to narrow it down a bit. I'm not on facebook, so I can only go off what I've seen on various forums. A few thoughts:

    Cormac McCarthy - 'Blood Meridian' - I'd peg this as the most popular request, but not a particularly long book. It's also not particularly a genre book and doesn't really fit the catalog (but the same is true of 'Bridges of Madison County')
    Thomas Pynchon - 'Gravity's Rainbow' - not seen a ton of folks asking for this, but a few and would qualify as a 'large' book, Mason/Dixon or Against the Day could also fit here
    Murakami - The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle - relatively long and a fair bit of folks seem interested
    Tolkein - Lord of the Rings - might be an obvious choice
    Aldous Huxley - 'Brave New World'- a lot of people guessed this as Octobers book
    Anthony Burgess - 'Clockwork Orange' - again, saw this guessed a couple times for October
    Thomas Harris - 'Silence of the Lambs' - wouldn't be my first guess, but seems to be a popular ask

    Going strictly by length - I haven't seen a ton of requests for these, but all have pockets of popularity

    Margaret Atwood - Madaddam Trilogy - would be sizeable if put into a single volume, have seen it mentioned occasionally but not a lot
    Neal Stephenson - a lot of long books here, but well covered by Subterranean
    David Foster Wallace - Infinite Jest
    Rand - Atlas Shrugged

    Yes, I was surprised about that as well...to my eye, the similarity between the two is fairly pronounced.

    Pretty bummed about the Heinlein set. Hopefully January will turn it around for me.

    I don't know that we have enough clues for the January title. Simply saying that's it's a popular and well requested book doesn't really offer many hints.

    I have no clue on the January title. I was saddened to miss out on the bookmark set. But not enough to want a facebook page.

    Very interesting -- thanks, Martin, had no idea that was an option.
