    This is the least interested I've ever been for a Suntup release.The book is not one I cared for and holds zero sentimental value to me. The price point was another shocker.

    I order a copy as well, but, I am a little bummed by the pricing. I was hoping it would be cheaper than Blackwater and Imajica considering the size of both of those books compared to this one. I can only assume that the licensing fee for Wonka must be much higher or that some of the cost of that golden ticket giveaway are being passed on.

    Out of curiosity, Martin, how did you come to (potentially) guess the next Suntup release? I don't recall there being any teaser info provided in yesterday's facebook live or anywhere else that I have seen. I too would love 'The Collector' by John Fowles to be the next announcement. It is an amazing book and I only have a beat-up mass market copy that I would love to upgrade with a Suntup AGE.

    Excellent. I've already pestered Kim over at Camelot about this and hope they get their copies soon.

    Easy pass for me. Not my jam. Glad that others are excited though.

    .

    I am very intrigued with this one. Will it include both 'Charlie' stories? Will it be in graphic novel format? If not. how many illustrations? Who will be the illustrator? What will Paul Suntup's contribution be as this he is signing this?

    On the other hand I have zero interest in Dune. I tried to read it in high school and surrendered pretty quickly. I also saw the movie, which was one of the worst films I have ever seen. I enjoy a lot of books I did not like in high school so if I tried again my reaction may be different. Right or wrong, my early exposure has soured me to the story.

    I love Dahl. I have a great copy of Folio's Complete Tales of the Unexpected...I'm tempted.

    I remember Paul doing a survey a while ago. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory topped the survey chart for several collectors. The story holds many memories for me. It will be cherished.

    If it is then I can relax. This is not a book I've ever felt compelled to have a limited edition of.

    I don't really read YA fiction anymore; so, for me, at least with this one, it will all come down to the price. Wouldn't mind having an AGE copy, but, not at the 150-200 price that the last few releases have been offered at. If the AGE is under a 100, then I may consider the purchase to keep my AGE set of Suntup books complete.
