    Man, I'm jealous! I would love to see that gallery showing. That art really did have me reaching for my wallet at first, but, I just can't do it at the moment as I need to save for some other upcoming book purchases. I do hope that I can find a good copy up the road. and that the price hasn't skyrocketed on them by that point. Seems like you can never really tell with that sort of thing!
    If I manage to make it -- and they allow cameras (doubtful, but you never know) -- I'll be sure to post some pics here.

Apparently she will have a Stepford gallery showing of these paintings here in Seattle to coincide with the Suntup announcement, and I hope to see the show in early October.

    Yeah, Stepford Wives is not a book I need. I just paid for my German edition of Es today, so that's it for this week.

    Yeah, it was an easy pass for me. Really like the art, but, not much interest beyond that. There's also a ton of upcoming books from other publishers that I would rather have instead. Hopefully, the next batch of Suntup books will interest me more because nothing's really peaked my interest this last quarter.

    Levin's Stepford Wives on sale today, so far looks like a non-sellout on day one.

    I checked GoodReads as a last measure before deciding to pass, and that seemed to be the opinion of a number of folks there.

    My experience with Ahlborn’s work has been, at best, uneven…I loved one (BROTHER, of which I have the Suntup edition, an upgrade to the tpb I had), marginally liked another (DARK ACROSS THE BAY), was bored by another (WITHIN THESE WALLS) and DNF’d a fourth (SEED). Other than BROTHER, she just doesn’t seem to be for me, no matter how much I try. As such, I’m passing on this new announcement, though the production looks to be, as always, too-notch.

    I 100% missed that the author signed the AE. I like that a lot and one thing that has always bugged me.

    Another Ania Ahlborn book being published by Paul and team. Passing again on Suntup but that doesn't reflect on their production quality. I really just don't think this is the publisher for me. Sorry to say this as I knew a number of the folks over there. All good people.

    I was ready to order The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton. I remember the book from high school. I did buy the Pallbearer's Club by Paul Tremblay signed from the Mysterious Bookshop. I also ordered a signed book by one of TMBS's booksellers, Mike Durrell and I had just ordered the latest secret not-yet-announced SST title. Finally I backed a Squared Circle bio-comic on Kickstarter. I got the edition w. a metal cover. Maybe I can wedge in the Suntup editions The Outsiders, I'm unsure at this moment.

    As usual Suntup over prices their books and yet tons of people buy them. I love this book. It got me through some tough times growing up. However I don't love it enough to pay what they are asking. I'll stick with my 38 year old paperback copy.

    I already have a trade edition signed by Hinton and inscribed with "Stay gold!", so I'll pass as well.

    It's not a first edition or anything fancy, by the way. Just some signed copy from Barnes and Noble a few years back, but it's enough for me.
