    An easy pass. Even with as much as I LOVED the first two.

    I ended-up grabbing a copy. Was a bit cheaper than I was expecting. I also want to keep my Suntup "Lecter" set complete. While I have heard a lot of the complaints about the ending of this book, I think I would like to judge it for myself as I have yet to read Hannibal. Hopefully, I will enjoy it more than some others have.

    Just kidding, it's Hannibal.

    So what are you going to do? It's live and it's Hannibal. It's a pass for me even though I do own the other two A/E editions.

While I’d like to continue the series, the reasons that made me skip reading the third one in its trade release still exist, even if they’re dressed up in a much more attractive edition. Need to figure this out quickly, as I imagine copies won’t last long.

    To get this back on track...There is announcement today. Correct?

    I have a feeling I will be passing on this.

    Yea. I think it is way different. Just wanted to put this out there for other buyers to be aware of the terms. Terms are different for the A/Es and the Numbered and Lettered versions.

    https://suntup.press/terms-of-service/

    For me this isn't a situation where I need the money. I was just trying to refocus and change my collecting a bit. The money would have likely been dumped right back into book(s).

    All that being said, now that I know the terms, I will not be heavily buying from Suntup just in case money is an issue at some point.

    Both options seem to be a bit different than other publishers out there.

    Fairly sure it was on here, but someone else found out about that policy awhile back and had a similar reaction, except I think the policy was slightly different in the sense that no cancellations would be honored, not even with store credit.

    I'm a bit put off however this is my issue as the terms are clear once I was directed to them. I decided I wanted to cancel a few of my pre-orders with Suntup and discovered that their terms are only store credit after 30 days of pre-purchase. Books are still months away, some our still available and some are sold out, however I am rather displeased with these terms.

    I have never heard of such before. Typically cancelling a pre order is a fairly standard affair. Now I'm stuck with books I decided I don't want or take a store credit for almost $500.00.

    Has anyone dealt with a publisher with terms like this before? I was rather shocked.

    Random thought/comment. I really like Suntup Editions however at the price point I don't think I will continue purchasing their A/E's. I have been thinking on this awhile and I value an authors signature. I'm sure there will be some exceptions to this for me however living authors A/E editions, unsigned, will likely be a pass for me going forward.

    SK would be the exception.

    The rumors were that the author was not happy that he had been forced to write Hannibal. The production company forced his hand in stating that they would have someone else write the story if he would not as they had the rights to the characters. He purposely wrote it with an ending they would not be willing to use. Sure enough the movie completely ignores to ending from the book, it simply did not happen. The primary complaint is that events occur that are too out of character. While I understand that, I also think the author set it up well enough to explain the dramatic shift. I finished this book on a flight home from Salt Lake City and I think I actually laughed out loud when the twist was revealed.
    This was the case for Hannibal Rising (Dino de Laurentiis even admitted to it) but not the case with Hannibal. With Hannibal they were constantly asking for a sequel but he wasn't forced into doing it and he was able to do it at his own pace (which is why it took so long).

    As for the ending, they would have used it had Jodie Foster not complained. Then when they did change it for her she decided not to do it anyways.

    Just received my AGE copy of The Collector. Another top-notch production by Suntup! I truly dig the slipcase color/material. It really matches the cream colored book-cover well. Read this book years ago and can't wait to give it another go now that I have this wonderful edition!

    However, I did pick up these frames (get them a little wider than your prints) which we have a variety of prints on the wall hung with AND we've actually swapped them out since they're fairly simple to do. One thing that has made life easier, and I think it takes up less space, is that I started storing as many of my prints flat as I could. I bought a portfolio which works really well. I have three of them for all of our prints of varying sizes.

    I do own three of the CD Doubleday Years prints that in all honesty, I should have never bought. I have no idea what to do with them. Also own Suntup's Eyes of the Dragon prints, which I also don't know what to do with, BUT they did allow me to get Misery so they definitely earned their price.
    Thanks for those ideas! Really appreciate it.
