    I'm a little surprised to see that many copies left too, although maybe I shouldn't be. Know that it's a large book, but, with shipping, the AGE will end up over $200! As much as I might like a copy, that price is a bit much for me as I have never read this story and have no idea if I would actually like it or not. Couple that with that fact that Centipede and Thunderstorm have some pricey releases forthcoming that I would prefer to put that money toward, and it was a somewhat easy pass for me. Also didn't realize that Paul dropped the print-run on this one. Good for him! I hope he considers doing that for his AGE's going forward as I was never a fan of him increasing the print-runs. Overall, I do hope I find a copy of this book up the road, but, it isn't a priority. Am much more excited for next month's release.

    If it is Poe will be in!

    The Godfather will be an easy buy for me as well but for a different reason. The Godfather was my wife's favorite movie, so I have seen it a few times. While I enjoy the movie it has not prompted me to buy the book, but a Suntup edition is something I would not pass on. If the April book is Lovecraft, which I doubt it is, that will be an easy pass for me. I have tried to read Lovecraft multiple times and have never enjoyed it. I respect his influence on future writers, but his writing is not for me.

    As far as THE MAGUS, I tried reading it many moons ago and didn't get far, though I love THE COLLECTOR. That experience and my dislike of the art and at the price point it's at...the math just didn't work for me this time around.

    I passed on The Magus too. I've never read it, but a cheap paperback will do me if I ever get around to it. I read The Godfather many years ago, and I doubt I'll buy that one either. I'm saving my pennies for Dune Messiah next month.

My local library does not have it and I have never purchased a copy so it as stayed a book I will get to someday. I actually know little about the story. Since the first time I read the collector (I believe I have read it four times now) there has been The Magus popping up, often described as Fowles best book. I consider The Collector a classic and it keeps drawing me back in.

    This is another pass for me. I hadn't read the book and the price point was a bit much for me. I get this is a massive book but I can't justify the money on an unknown.

    Received my dinged Suntup copy of Blake Crouch's "Dark Matter". Am supper happy with this purchase as you can hardly tell that there was an issue with the book. From what I can see, the only issue is some small creasing in the upper-right hand corner of the first 30 pages of the book. Beyond that, the book and the slipcase are in perfect shape. Feel like I really scored with this one and cannot wait to give it a read. Have only read the 1st book in the Pines trilogy by Crouch so far and loved it; so, I have high hopes for this one!

    No. The blurb mentions that it's a 19th century writer, and Lovecraft wrote in the 20th century.

    The consensus so far is:

    January - The Magus, John Fowles
    February - The Godfather, Mario Puzo
    March - An Edgar Allen Poe book
