    I am looking forward to today's announcement. If it is Boy's Life I will likely be a buyer. I don't have the Sub Press edition, a 1st 1st, or anything other than a trade PB of this fantastic book.

      Still really torn about this one and think it may come down to the design/potential extra features. This is truly one of my favorite books, but I do have the SubPress LE edition (which does have a slipcase which is rare for SubPress these days) and I've been trying to stick to my "no duplicate books" rule for my collection. But still, a McCammon book getting the Suntup treatment just might be enough for me to break my rule. In a way, it would make my day if it ends up being another book so I don't have to make a decsion.

        I 100% understand. I don't have the money for this purchase but almost feel like it's a must have for my collection.

        If this happens to be anything other than McCammon of I just hate the look of it it will be a little of a relief. $$ is tight.

          Well it is Boy's Life.

          In all honesty I do not like the art or the price point. I am passing on this.

          Hugely disappointing but good for my bank account.

            I knew this would be most likely be a pass for me due to already owning the oversized Sub Press edition, but I will say without a doubt that these are some very beautiful editions.  If I was in the market for one, I would be all over one of these.  As I already have a limited of the book and I'm not a Suntup collector, the $175 price point made this a very easy pass.  Congrats to those who get one, though.  I'm sure they will look good on the shelf.

              That’s exactly my situation, and I’m sitting here trying to figure out what to do as I watch the copy-count tick down. That McCammon signed the AE is a definite plus; the $175 price tag is not. I’ve gotta decide soon, I’m sure it’ll sell out within the hour. Maybe I need to look at my Sub Press edition, see if I can just appreciate what I already own.

              EDIT: Okay, well, looking at the Sub Press edition helped. I think with a lower limitation of 474 vs. 750, art that is, to my eye, just as good if not better than the Suntup, and the oversized format, I'm going to stick with the Sub Press edition only. It pains me to pass on this Suntup edition, given my affection for the book and author, but viewing again the awesomeness of the Sub Press edition helps. I also have a personalized trade HC 1st of the book, so a triple redundancy would really violate my red line of no duplicate/variant editions. Like Sock Monkey, if I didn't have the Sub Press edition, though, I'd be all over this new Suntup offering.

                Well I've looked again at the art and it's just not for me. I typically like David Palumbo but this looks very much like computer generated stuff which loses something for me.

                  I could have typed this word for word! I literally just pulled my SubPress copy down to make me feel better about passing on the Suntup and now don't feel nearly as bad, even though a part of me wishes still wishes that I could own it, just because of how much I love this story!

                    You know, really surprised that over 11 hours after it was announced, the book hasn’t sold out yet.  I mean 750 copies is A LOT, especially at that price point, but I was sure it would be gone by noon PST.

                      I went for the Classic Edition, which I see is sold out this morning.

                          While I don't have a 'no duplicates" rule, I do try and evaluate my need for any potential duplicate books, especially at this price point.

                          Needless to say, I didn't buy it (I do have the SubPress version) - plus I just dropped $200 on a SubPress pre-order the night before.

                          Congrats to those who got one.

                            Looks like Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier is today's book. Very nice, but the cost is too rich for my blood. Funny enough, if there was an AGE, I probably would have grabbed it as this is one of those stories that I have always meant to get around to reading.

                              I got the ebook a while ago meaning to read it before the Suntup edition came out, but never got around to it. I'm not into the gothic theme at all, but I'll give it a shot at some point. No way I'd pay for a Numbered Suntup, though.

                                Same. I was ready to click Buy for the AGE but saw there wasn't one. More money for tools and wood!
