    Surprisingly, I'm actually debating picking this one up. Of all of Wells's books, this one is the one that I've most meant to get around to reading. Since it doesn't make the previous set of Wells books, my Collector OCD won't kick in, prodding me to track down the other books to match. The $130 price point is making take a moment and think it over.

    I typically like the designs of the lettered editions, but this time I'm rather partial to the limited.

    Passing, but it's a nice addition to the Wells set for those who had bought the earlier volumes.

    Me too. Might be more interested in the epic fantasy later in the month.

    Does me no good. They have that locked down so as a Facebook outsider I am unable to see it.

    While not my favorite Wells story, I'm impressed with the production values here, and the extras included in terms of foreword/afterword/appendices. Pricing aside, the binding design for the lettered is simple and striking, think they did a great job with that.

    I can't remember if I have a limited Frankenstein. In the process of building a house and offset library so most of my books are packed. And of course I cant find my list.

    My interest is piqued so I’ll be checking out the announcement. If it’s FRANKENSTEIN I’ll be passing. If I drop money on this particular book, I’d be joining Martin in tracking down a copy of the Centipede edition since I’ve had my eye on it for awhile.

    LORD OF THE FLIES would be cool, but probably not an “essential” book for me, but who knows, my mind might change once I see the design.

    I have seen photos of the Pennyroyal edition and they are stunning. Have never seen one for sale but I am sure it would be way more than I would spend. Had not heard of Arion so I just looked it up. To be honest the book looks nice but I do not care for the art and the price is way to high based on the photos on their website. If I decided the I had to have a copy I would probably go in search of a reasonable priced Centipede Press edition. That one was published before I discovered Centipede but I have seen them pop up for sale occasionally.

    Totally understand. For me, I eventually need to add a physical copy and a Suntup edition would work well for me,

    Oh it certainly does. Don't get me wrong, I love the novel!

    Back in my college days I even did an Honors thesis on the novel and the role of Frankenstein as a natural philosopher/scientist.

    I just don't see it as a must have for a Suntup Edition.

    It also reads well today. Many older works do not.

    The worst part is that Frankenstein is such a classic that it's usually one of the first titles people think of when requesting horror titles, no matter how many copies they already have at home.
