    I thought I had time and missed out.

    Agreed, the production is fantastic. I have a little flaking also, but my Brodart cover seems to be keeping it at bay.

    Sending you a PM.

The illustrations are insane and I love them. The DJ is another matter and there are red sections that appear to be flaking away.

    I will not return the book but I am saddened that this issue occurred. I'm sure Paul isn't pleased either but I wish they could issue alternate DJs that will not have the red flake off of them.

    I have intentions to show this book off but I am worried about additional damage to the DJ from handling it to much.

    I saw that article too; although, I assumed that the Netflix deal was only for the movie/streaming rights as opposed to the book rights. I'm sure that any new Dahl series/movies that Netflix will be doing will drum up interest in Dahl's books; however, I doubt that the casual reader would be willing to pay the $190 list price for the Suntup AGE Wonka book let alone what that sold out book may fetch on the aftermarket. Hopefully I am wrong as I did purchase an AGE copy. If I ever do decide to sell it, I wouldn't mind turning a profit.

    Hot damn! Glad to hear from another fan of Peter Clines. Starting reading him when his Ex series was being put out by Permutated Press. He is a very good author and writes fun and interesting stories.

    That being said, if anyone has read and enjoyed Dark Matter, you should also read The Fold. It's reality-bending, dimension-swapping sci-fi at its finest!

    Oct seems likely, especially with the recent butterfly clue.
    Nov would be interesting...I love Crouch's stuff, and I do think DARK MATTER is his best novel, but I'd be hardpressed to think of his work as having the classic merit worthy of the Suntup treatment. That said, I'd probably buy it.
    Nov (2) also seems a wise guess, though I wasn't a fan of the book.
    If Dec is correct, jeffingoff will be thrilled.
    I've been shaking since I read the clue. At first I told myself that it's got to be Wasp Factory. But that don't check out. At this point, if it's not Butcher Boy I'll be very busted up.

    Sub Press has one of these.

    This doesn't mean Paul wouldn't throw his hat in the ring though.

It was written in 2011 so “a few years ago” and virtual reality plays a large part in the book which lines up with “one of the best books of any year…or any reality.” I’m probably completely off base but that was what came to my mind anyways.

    Just had a chance to look over the email for the Suntup announcement schedule for October - December 2021. After reading the hints, I genuinely have no guesses as to what the upcoming books will be. Would love to hear if any of you have guesses....

    1) This novel by one of the most masterful storytellers of his generation holds its readers captive, and is often credited as creating the modern day psychological thriller.
    2) Though published only a few years ago, this fast-paced science-fiction novel would have been considered one of the best books of any year… or, any reality.
    3) A brilliant modern day spin on one of horror’s classic tropes, this novel was highly praised by Stephen King and George R.R. Martin when it arrived in the United States.
    4) The story of a young boy’s descent into madness and rage, this is the first limited edition of the novel hailed by critics as “startlingly original” upon its publication in the early 90s.
    I remain 'cautiously' confident that October is 'The Collector'. I am my normal 'clueless' on the remaining.

    Oct - 'The Collector' by John Fowles

    Nov (2) - 'Hex' by Thomas Olde Heuvelt
    Dec - 'The Butcher Boy' by Patrick McCabe

    I think those are all solid guesses. I'm not current with sci-fi so I'm not sure on that one but the 1,3,and 4 seem right.
