    Anything 'limited' and popular brings out the scalpers, which I've zero respect for (and it's disappointing to see so much of that going on in general). But, you didn't do that - so I don't think you need to beat yourself up on the ethics of the sale.

    One thought though - a transaction with a long duration between purchase and fulfillment does carry some increased risk for the buyer. Presumably they've thought that through and accepted it. All the same, may be worth writing down a note with the details of the transaction, on the off chance you get hit by falling space junk or are otherwise incapacitated and unable to complete the transaction yourself.

    It just feels hypocritical of me because I find the King track thing to be very annoying, and yet I'm using a loophole of sorts to keep my number another month.
    It's a tough call. Personally, I could see being able to lock in a number for say Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs and if he does the next two. For other titles, it's hard for someone else to get a chance, but again, you aren't doing anything wrong. I just disagree with the policy itself, but it's my my press. LOL!

    Also, if you do it for this one, will you then have to do it for The Road & Blood Meridian, assuming that you purchase Blood Meridian next month.

    Yeah, I'm ashamed and feel really dirty doing this. If it weren't for there being two books in February (not to mention The Exorcist being the MOST expensive Suntup to date), I wouldn't have done it.

    And I don't plan on doing it again. I just couldn't wait until I had The Wolfen in hand, financially.

    I may need to sell a few other Suntup titles as well, regrettably. But at least those are in hand.
    Do not feel bad that you are doing that. Do what you need to do, if the buyer has issue they should not buy from you. If a third party has an issue it is their issue not yours.

    Received my copy of Seed today. Very nice production. I did notice a change. The limitation number is printed rather than written in.

    Yes, for now.

    This one depresses me, as I've already sold my preorder. It's a beautiful book, but I just cannot financially keep it.

    And thus my streak comes to an end...

    Generally never get very excited over wolves. Not sure why because I love an assortment of monsters, crawlies, creepies, creeps, mutants, etc.

    Curious, what genre is it you don’t like...horror? werewolf? horror/crime mash-up...?

    I snagged a copy. It’s one of those classic books that I read way back in the day, and have a little to no memory of. It’ll be nice to revisit it in such a beautiful presentation
