    Not to take away from SST, but I'd be surprised if their edition was, strictly speaking, nicer. For all their faults, Chizine did a bang-up job on their limiteds, which was why it was so disappointing when they decided to stop making them.
    I don’t disagree, as I have several of their signed/limited hardcovers, and they’re very nice. But the fact that the SST edition is going to be oversized, printed in two colors throughout, and illustrated suggested to me that it will be the nicer edition. Larger print run, though.

    I have searched for a HC in the past with no luck. I will look again. Thanks!

    A link would be helpful. I just haven't ever heard of this or ran across one.

    I wanted to read The Angels but wasn't able to purchase it. I hadn't really chased the author as I didn't want to ruin my love for Westlake Soul. Fairly selfish, on my part, but I didn't want to ruin my opinion his/her work.

    I keep all my orders in a spreadsheet. I have a received date column so I can quickly filter down to items not received. I am down to only one old enough to not know the date ordered.

    Surprised so few people on the forum seem to have read this author. I remember first reading him after picking up the novella that CD published "The Angels". Reminded me a lot of "Blockade Billy", but not in a bad way. Then read his novel "The Forgotten Girl". Also enjoyed that one; however, I would put it more on the fantasy/mystery side of things than horror. Since then, I've had my out for more books from this author. Had never heard of "Westlake Soul" until the SST announcement. With the level of praise/excitement from SST to publish this book, I had to order the limited. Can't wait to read it this summer/fall!

    Made the purchase. Going through some stuff now but didn't feel I could pass this up.

    As a bonus this is actually a book my wife should be excited about. At the least she may keep it after I kick the bucket.

    Wowza! You certainly have more patience and faith than I do...I have seven books on pre-order, and truth be told that's about four or five more than I'd truly like. That said, I should be receiving two of them within the next two months, so I'll be down to five shortly. Sometimes it just can't be avoided, but I no longer preorder anything, unless the situation demands it (i.e. a quick sellout is assured at announcement (thus preventing Camelot from grabbing copies) and and I have to have the book). My oldest three pre-orders are from 2017 (two) and early 2018 (1), and all are Cemetery Dance...I know many folks have preorders with CD and others publishers far older than my measly three years. Yes, I know there are reasons and causes and issues, etc. etc., so I don't want to open that discussion again, especially since I've already determined my personal solution...I just find it interesting to see others with a degree of patience r.e. small-press preorders that I just no longer seem to possess.

    To bring this post back to the thread topic, two of those preorders are with SST. :-)

And looking at your list (like mine) some of the titles really jump out because the trade editions have been long ago published while we wait for the limited editions. I'm looking at Flight or Fright (my order receipt doesn't even list the name of the book it lists it as "CDCC Secret Link -- DO NOT SHARE!"--oh shit did I just break a law??) and Gwendy's MFer.
    Yeah, I started this list last year, after checking with Mindy on a couple of things that I wasn't sure I even ordered.

    Gwendy's MFer sounds like the Penthouse Letters edition...poor Gwendy!

    I went with the cheapest one. I've never had a problem getting books shipped via Royal Mail.
