    Brave new world is a excellent read. Very thought provoking piece that is very relevant for the times we are living in

    BRAVE NEW WORLD by Aldous Huxley sounds like an interesting read. I would think about this one if it is actually what ends up being published. Already have 1984 on order so these may make a good pair.

    For those who haven’t read it yet and want to before the Suntup edition comes out Amazon has the ebook for Let the Right One In at $1.99.

    As you can see it’s the remake tie-in edition with the bowdlerized American title but the book is still the same.

    If it's Brave New World I might be in for a gift edition. Again as with most Suntup editions price point is going to be the deciding factor.

    I loved BROTHER and bought the Suntup edition, but found SEED a rather middling book and have no interest in a deluxe edition of it.

    As far as Heinlein, don’t believe scientific accuracy accurately describes his early juveniles nor many of his later adult books — then again, I’m far from a Robert Heinlein expert. So...maybe Asimov?

    From what I’ve seen on TDT.org, a lot of people have the same guesses. I don’t know where I’d land if my guesses are correct. BRAVE NEW WORLD is a book I’ve always to have read but never enough to actually read it. SEED is more in line with my tastes but I’ve yet to read my copy of BROTHER so... As for the Heinlein titles, both are ones I’d like to check out.

    Also interesting that the print runs of the AGEs are going down from 1000 to 750. With the price points on these going up from the $65 range to around $125, I’m sure demand will drop a bit. I’d also assume that some of the book flipping will diminish. There’s a lot more room for the price to increase at the $65 price point than at $125.

    As far as the books, here are my guesses:

    October:
    Hint: Dystopian novel by one of the most influential sf writer in 20th Century
    Guess: BRAVE NEW WORLD by Aldous Huxley

    No clue about book of poetry. I won’t even try.

    November:
    Hint: Horror novel of gothic suspense and second book published by author
    Guess: SEED by Ania Ahlborn

    December:
    Hint: Two books, originally published two years apart by sf writer who first stressed scientific accuracy in his work
    Guess: STARSHIP TROOPERS and STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND by Robert Heinlein
    First guesses I have seen.
    So here is where I would fall assuming your guesses are correct:
    Brave New World - I would most likely buy this one. Have known about this one forever but never read it.
    Poetry - I am #189 so I am not in the pre-order window but may try for it depending on the author or authors.
    Seed - That is a tough one for me. I read the story after being so impressed with Brother. Although I liked it I am not sure I will return so I probably do not need a limited of it. If the price is the same as Brother I may just to have both.
    Starship Troopers and Stranger in a Strange Land - Do not know enough about them to make a call yet.

    Just saw the artwork for the latest book. Love it.

    Per usual I do not like the price point.

    GREAT. I still bought it. Still gonna read it. But if this is even 1/10th as pointless as The Mailman, then I might have to sell it. Though unlike a Bentley Little book, I'll actually be able to get real money for it.

    I'd rather go by Grady Hendrix's appraisal: The Auctioneer feels like "If Cormac McCarthy had written Needful Things." By that measure, you'll probably have to buy number 23 from my grandkids.
    I think you will like The Auctioneer. It's a good read. I can see why Grady Hendrix said that. Think about it as if McCarthy and Little had a daughter. The authors success and then tragic death make for an interesting story as well. You wonder what might have been if things were different.

    Totally off-topic, but if you want to see Cormac's voice put to use in the field of comedy, the site 'Yelping with Cormac' is a great way to kill a little bit of time - this is my favorite - https://yelpingwithcormac.tumblr.com...0/dotties-cafe

    I will be buying it. Wendell Minor is a great artist and I have a few books signed by him.

    Actually, I toyed with the idea of picking it up an AGE because of that, but then saw this, and decided I’d just wait for the expanded version:

    “Carberg is currently writing a memoir of his wife, including the mysterious circumstances that led to her writing The Auctioneer.”
