    I think I am in the minority on this, but I rather liked the ending.

    #2 Since The Omen was a novelization of a movie I do not expect that to be the title. I have no clue what it is but hope it is not The DaVinci Code.
    #3 Le Guinn matches the description. Gaimans American Gods would also fit. The fact that it is not signed by the author pushes me to lean into Le Guinn.
    I hope number two isn't the Da Vinci Code as well. I didn't make that my guess as I didn't think it would fit the horror franchise part of the clue; however, maybe I am incorrect and people do consider this series to be horror. Lets hope not!

    Any guesses regarding today's Suntup announcement schedule? I'm terrible at them, but, my guesses are below...

    1) Stephen King once referred to this book as “one of the two most frightening novels of our time. I cheated and put that quote into the old google machine. Using the results, my guess would be Thomas Harris' Hanibal, which would make sense considering he has already published the two prior books in the series.

    2) This terrifying tale drawn from Biblical prophecies spawned one of the most successful horror franchises of all time. Not sure if this was an actual book or a novelization of a movie, but, my guess is The Omen. I know that The Omen has had multiple films and would be considered a successful franchise. it also fits the Biblical prophecies hint.

    3) An American classic by one of the most influential novelists of postmodern literature, this Nebula and Hugo award-winning book is considered the author’s finest masterpiece. No idea on this one. My random guess is Ursula K Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness.

    I now have a budget that I have to follow to the penny, so my book purchases have to be right for me now. Sadly, this is another title I have to pass on.

    I have the signed (by Crouch) and numbered UK 1st HC from Goldsboro, so am skipping this new edition. But if I didn’t have the earlier deluxe edition, I’d be all over this Suntup edition…it’s such a great read, I loved it.

    Feel the same way. Have never read anything by this author. Also don't care for the art. Can't quite put my finger on it, but, I guess I would say that it is too videogamish (yes totally made up word). Not sure how true this is, but, I have also seen reviews that state the author tends to write in very short choppy sentences. From the examples that were provided, this book probably wouldn't be my jam.

    I took some pictures comparing it to CD's IT - definitely a tad thicker. Not sure if it's the thickest book I have, but it would be damn close. I especially love the purple slipcase - it's just so stunning.

    Also forgot the AGE came with the premium pack.

    No, it's a standard size book, just fat/phat!

    Just received my AGE copy of Clive Barker's "Imajica". This one turned out fantastic! Really love the illustrated glossary in the back. The artwork is so cool. Also forgot this one came with the premiums pack which was a very nice surprise. I'll probably never be able to afford any Suntup books that aren't AGEs; so, it was neat to see how the other half live with that premiums pack. Also, in terms of girth, I think this just might be the largest book in my collection. Definitely larger than my copy of IT from CD.

    Yes. I really hope KPB returns to Kin one day as well. I think in Jeff Terry's video he mentioned he has a thought about how he would approach it but has several other things in front of this.
