    There's a second video that just has the band. Which explains why the VHS release back in the olden times was called Two of One (because it had two videos for the song One.)
    I am sure I have seen the music video but have not seen the movie so it would not have clicked from that. The lyrics are spot on for the story though I just never put one and one together.

    Anyways, I picked up the AE of this one since it's at least a book I've read (not that that has stopped me on other Suntup books.)
    I did not realize Metallica's song One had anything to do with this story but once you mentioned it seams obvious.

    I have to admit to having never read it, but while it is certainly a book that I should -- and plan to, after this reminder of its lasting importance -- it's not a book I feel compelled to add a spendy volume of to my collection. I will, however, pick up a used pb of it to read the next time I'm at my local HPB.

    This is one of my favorite books. However I’m going to pass on this. Congratulations to those who are purchasing this one.

    Great book and love (love!) the artwork. Sadly bad timing for me but I like that the price is a little lower.

    Maybe this will be a book that lingers for sale for awhile. If not, at some point in the future, this will be something I will keep my eye out for on the secondary market.

    I think they are shooting for the AE's shipping in late August.

    It says casemaking is still in progress. I remember Paul saying something about it on a recent Facebook video. When the slipcase parts were put together, the images/print weren't lining up properly, so things were being reworked.

    As much as I'm disappointed it's not Watership Down, my wallet is also very happy it's not.

    Replay has been on the fringe of my recollection for some time now (may have been here, or TDT, or somewhere else, but there was a thread of time travel books which is how I first heard about it.) It's been on my To Buy list ever since and while I always look for a copy while used book shopping, I've never found one, nor just grabbed a new copy from Amazon.

    I did buy the AE though so maybe that'll be one I end up reading.

    The video for the Roman edition is a nice look into the process. What a gorgeous edition.

    Happily picked-up a copy as well. Loved Replay when I read it earlier this year. The copy that I currently have is pretty beat-up; so, this will be a good copy to have for my collection.
