    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.

    I think I will be passing on basically anything it may be. I have four Suntup books on pre-order with two of these paid for already and two to be paid once the books are ready to be shipped. I am a fan of the press but the price point(s) aren't really meant for me on any kind of consistent basis.

    I hope it is -- I already have a nice Folio Society of that one, and my wallet could use a break. I'm starting to realize I get almost as excited when they're books I already have nice editions of and know I'll save $$$ as when they're books I need.

    I appear to be in the minority but I would love a nice edition of Frankenstein. All the other deluxe editions held little interest and I only own this one in audio. All of the conventional wisdom (Of which I have none) guesses sound good to me. So it will probably be none of them.

    No idea either. Looking forward to seeing the production.

    Any guess as to what tomorrow's book may be? Wondering what the forum thinks as I'm drawing a blank after watching the facebook teaser today.

    "This is a classic work of literature that has been frequently requested by our customers. After receiving repeated requests for it, we decided to make it happen!"

    Received the Heinlein limited set today. They are fantastic. The numbers are written in. Not sure if Seed was a one off or if it is just a timing thing.

    Yeah. With multiple releases each month, more artist editions, and an eye toward increased print runs, the secondary will mellow in my opinion. Some titles will still skyrocket. But I doubt the rights system will be as ironclad. We saw a bunch of people react after the price point of Blood Meridian followed closely by the announcement that 5 books would be up for sale in the next 3 months. Sure a lot of people will pick up those rights but I’m not sure they’ll be as steadfast in keeping them. We’ll see.

    I feel the same way. I will probably never be able to afford more than the gift editions, and even with those I am choosy; however, I have absolutely loved every gift edition that I have purchased from Suntup and plan to purchase more should the tittles interest me.
