    Valid point but I do not count it as he is the artist. I did think he should sign the limited and lettered editions twice though.

    Yeah, I wish that the Suntup AGEs had author signatures too! I've always wondered why they don't. Are authors charging extra to sign the AGE; or, is it something done to try to increase interest in the more expensive editions? If I am being honest, while it is a nice bonus feature, I really don't care that the AGEs are signed by the artist. While I love good cover & interior artwork, having a particular artist signature would never push me to make a purchase. In fact, I have purchased numerous books with dubious artwork just because it's the story/author that matters to me most. I would much rather any potential "sig-fee" go toward getting an author to sign rather than the artist.
    I have read before that typically the authors are not paid for the signatures; it is a courtesy thing. Not sure if that is accurate in all cases.

    I'm assuming that is the idea as well. I'm with you in regards to the train. It's out of my range and so are many of the AE's. I have had to cut back on my Suntup addiction because $100+ books are pushing my financial means. I love the books but have to stay within a reasonable budget for my hobby.

    I think my wife would be mortified if she had any idea what I spend on books!

    Yeah, that's what I'm inclined to believe as well. I've pretty much gotten over it at this point as I know that I'll never be able to jump on the numbered/lettered train without hitting the lottery.

    That’s always been my assumption, so to make the numbered and lettered more desirable and exclusive, thereby validating the not-insignificant additional expense.

    I believe Horns remains the only Artist edition signed by the author. I do not expect that to change.

    I heard that suntup sent out a mailer and was curious as to what it is and also who they went out to. Was it random etc. Should I be on the lookout for it.
