    Good point. I'm wondering how much business these contests generate for DRP? I've seen these types of promotions from them before so they have to be fairly successful for them to continue doing it...

    LOL. Glad you said that because I was thinking it. I read the rules twice before believing those were the only rules.

    Good on Dark Regions. This is the first promotion in ages that did not need a secret decoder ring to figure out. Two simple options, hopefully we will see more of that.

    I was strong and did not enter the lottery for a numbered SILENCE. I am thinking about perusing the DRP site to see if there might be something there to interest me so I can get in on their contest.

    Saw that over on the FB group for Suntup. Made me realize I could use a Tremblay book in my life.

    I was able to find a copy which was a huge relief since I missed out on the initial ordering window. Still amazed at how fast this AE sold out, but it is a famous book and has a lot of cross-over potential. Could it become one of the most, if not the most, valuable AEs yet?

    For those who missed the AE.

    Edit: only if you purchased the Red Dragon AE from Subterranean, sorry

    Very thoughtful replies. Thank you all very much. They give me pause on such a large purchase.

    I've wrung my hands long enough over this one and I really think I will pass on it.

    These replies are indicative of why these type of forums are so special.

I have not handled my copy enough to notice the fragility Ron mentions but I have handled it enough to believe that it would be fragile. The actually printing of the book is very nice but not spectacular and the art is just ok for my taste. Value is very subjective. Is it a nice book? Yes. Is it worth spending three months of my book budget on? No.
    Pretty much this - the Andrea Peterson walnut dyed rag paper used for the cover is very cool, and I liked the design & stamping. However, the Cougar Opaque paper the book is printed on is too glossy for my taste, no texture to it.

I've seen pictures and really like the way it looks. I have read the story and liked it but it wouldn't go in my top 40.

    In other words I was thinking of purchasing a copy but at $300 it is way out of my normal range. Just so folks understand my budget I allocate $100/month* for book orders which includes all books including reading copies.

    That all being said I really love the way that this book looks. The negatives -if they can be called that- is that the artwork doesn't grab me.

    Anywho...ramble over. Feedback is appreciated.

    *Self imposed. I am now only buying books with cash on hand. No more CC's. Those are mostly empty now and are only going to be broken out for actual emergencies.

    Since you mention your only barometer is the design and aesthetics, and, as well, that you don’t like the art, the only visible element left, generally speaking, is the paper in which its boards are covered. While in my mind that’s definitely not a reason to drop $300, it is indeed a unique paper in both manufacture and striking appearance. It is also somewhat fragile in that wear spots are easily created by repeated abrasion (removal and insertion) against the slipcase. I also had some ink from the paper somehow at the time of production or shipping transfer over onto the page edges in the form of a bit of spotting. I contacted Paul, and he sent me a graphic eraser and that pretty much cleaned it up. If I wasn’t such a fan of the story, I probably would have sold it by now as the simplicity and fragility of the design (and that spotting) was a bit dissatisfying, but I love the story and I appreciate the deluxe treatment it’s been given, even if to my eye the execution misses the mark by a hair, at least at that price point.

    I commend you about not using CC's for book purchases. I have that strict policy as well for myself. Although, I do use payment plans and layaways.
