    Question for folks who own a numbered of Brother. Is the book as great looking in person? Is the paper interesting? In other words, aesthetically only, is this worth the money. 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.

It has only had one limited treatment done before, but it was not numbered and was not from the smaller presses we typically discuss here...Paul's edition would truly be the first deluxe treatment worthy of the book's popularity and importance. I apologize for being cryptic or vague, but I figure it's a 50/50 shot and I don't want to either spread false rumors or blow the surprise, so I'll have to leave it at that.
    Even if it doesn't end up being the February title, you should give more hints! ;-)

    Thanks. I’m usually up on this stuff even for publishers I don’t buy a lot from. Work’s been a beast lately so I’ve been off my game.

    Something similar actually happened with the Rock Band video game series many years back! There was some group online that spammed the request page with Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley. So when the developers released the song in the game, they could proudly say that it was "the most requested song they ever got". ;-)
    I believe I have book 2 and 3 on the shelf. My wife read and loved the series. The funny part was that she said it was the worst writing she ever read but she loved it. She loaned the 1st book to someone and it never returned. That was probably a good thing as she wanted me to read the series and her description left me less than enthused by that prospect.

    That would be too funny. Just thinking about the potential artwork or wraparound dustjacket is making me chuckle. I'm horribly inappropriate

    I trust your opinions on books so I hope it comes to fruition.

    Can't wait to see what the next Suntup announcement is going to be! Per the teaser Paul sent out, it was the #1 most requested book from his customer surveys; so, it has to be a pretty prominent book or author. Don't really have any guesses yet. I just hope that it is a book that hasn't had a limited edition treatment yet.

    It's a safe assumption that Kim gets bombarded with pre-listing emails for titles that sell out this fast.

    Since I was slammed at work today, I never got a chance to order the AGE, and yes, as you all know, it's sold out.

    I asked Kim at Camelot if she has any extras (I haven't seen her post anything yet) or maybe CDCC will have an offer.

    Stupid work getting in the way!

    Agreed -- my (huge) affinity for this series starts with RED DRAGON and stops with SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. The others were -- like CARI MORA (though perhaps not quite to that extent) -- unfortunate and unneeded, and fell far short of the brilliance shown in those first two books.

    I feel the exact same way and am glad I picked-up a copy before Suntup sold out. I've always wanted to read this book as I loved the movie, but, I never got around to doing so. Almost pulled the trigger back when SubPress announced their version; however, the overall aesthetic just didn't grab me; so, I passed. Am glad I did as I really like what Suntup is offering and would've probably ended up passing on their version if I already had the SubPress version.
    You are in for a treat when you read this one for the first time. It is a great story!
