    Still really torn about this one and think it may come down to the design/potential extra features. This is truly one of my favorite books, but I do have the SubPress LE edition (which does have a slipcase which is rare for SubPress these days) and I've been trying to stick to my "no duplicate books" rule for my collection. But still, a McCammon book getting the Suntup treatment just might be enough for me to break my rule. )
    That’s exactly my situation, and I’m sitting here trying to figure out what to do as I watch the copy-count tick down. That McCammon signed the AE is a definite plus; the $175 price tag is not. I’ve gotta decide soon, I’m sure it’ll sell out within the hour. Maybe I need to look at my Sub Press edition, see if I can just appreciate what I already own.

    EDIT: Okay, well, looking at the Sub Press edition helped. I think with a lower limitation of 474 vs. 750, art that is, to my eye, just as good if not better than the Suntup, and the oversized format, I'm going to stick with the Sub Press edition only. It pains me to pass on this Suntup edition, given my affection for the book and author, but viewing again the awesomeness of the Sub Press edition helps. I also have a personalized trade HC 1st of the book, so a triple redundancy would really violate my red line of no duplicate/variant editions. Like Sock Monkey, if I didn't have the Sub Press edition, though, I'd be all over this new Suntup offering.

    I knew this would be most likely be a pass for me due to already owning the oversized Sub Press edition, but I will say without a doubt that these are some very beautiful editions.  If I was in the market for one, I would be all over one of these.  As I already have a limited of the book and I'm not a Suntup collector, the $175 price point made this a very easy pass.  Congrats to those who get one, though.  I'm sure they will look good on the shelf.

    Well it is Boy's Life.

    In all honesty I do not like the art or the price point. I am passing on this.

    Hugely disappointing but good for my bank account.

    I 100% understand. I don't have the money for this purchase but almost feel like it's a must have for my collection.

    If this happens to be anything other than McCammon of I just hate the look of it it will be a little of a relief. $$ is tight.

    If you're not on Facebook, I can help you on that front and my commission is much less than eBay's. ;-)
    Like Sock Monkey I'm not on Facebook, so may have to someday take you up on that offer, Splync , or bite the bullet and join...at some point in the near future, some of my more desirable stuff is going to have to find new homes. I've done fairly well scraping off the easy(ish) stuff to let go on eBay over the last couple of years, but now that skin layer is about gone and I need to start digging into the muscle. It's going to hurt, but it's necessary if I don't want to move thousands of books to a potential new home...but if it's going to hurt that much, I'd rather not pour salt onto that exposed muscle by continuing to pay 16% eBay fees.

    Yeah, I’m not a Facebook (or any social media) kinda guy.  This forum is about as far as I go.

    I found it today! I knew it had to be there somewhere, and it was, hidden behind an oversize Ray Bradbury book. I'll probably also get the Suntup edition...don't think I can resist that one.
