    I passed only because I had just purchased the Folio Society Edition and I have a 1st edition paperback. I came to the book by way of Vincent Price's Last Man on Earth. I guess what intrigued me when I was young, was that it was the first time I had seen the Vampire dealt with in a non-supernatural way, the vampire as a disease, with a scientific cause and maybe even a scientific cure.

    I purchased the artist gift edition reluctantly. Had a artist gift edition not been offered I Am Legend would have been an easy pass for me. The story did nothing for me when I read it. Been many years and I will probably read the artist gift edition to see if my views have changed. I think that story may have a very devout following but I suspect it is limited number.

    I agree with you on this: thank God we have these forums and each other.
    I don't how you can even think that you'd have any effect on I Am Legend's sales!

    It was always going to be a hard sell for that title, given the price being higher than the Wells titles and not having any additional signatures beyond the artist. It'll eventually sell out one day, but the circumstances will make it take a rockier path.

    Also, Brother is technically taking longer!

    I hear ya, Jeff...I was clicking the buy button on this, and then reality sunk in.....Yeah, I can reserve a copy, and pay when it ships in December, but I'm scared enough right now that I'm wondering what Christmas will be like for my kids this year, if we'll have a house to celebrate it in. Books have to, as much as it hurts me, become a lower priority. I pulled the trigger on last week's McCammon Little Book, and that'll probably have to be the extent of my book buying for the foreseeable future. I'll live vicariously through the pics you guys post.
    Hopefully this is just steam I'm letting out. Pressure I'm releasing. My fear is always greater than the reality. I hope that holds true in this situation. I plan on buying the Suntup book next week. And the only way I won't is if I'm unemployed.

    With that purchase, I'll have 37 preorders. So I'll be in books for a while no matter what my employment situation is.

    So I have it pretty good and I'd rather be grateful than fearful.

    I hope Christmas is magical for your kids. I hope we're all still sharing the anticipation and joy of collecting by then too!

    Spoiler!
    Wow, that is a fantastic addition!

    I'm only half-kidding, Jeff. I did find this line thoughtful and resonate. I think we're all in the same tentative position right now. That's one good thing about this message board, though: a place for our collective Micro-Niche- the Obsessive Small Press Horror Collector- to come and talk about these other things- books- that mean so much to us with other folks who completely understand.

    Take care of yourself and your family. All of you out there. Don't let FOMO push you into an unwise decision. The books will find their way to us when the time is right. I actually know this as fact. It's weird, but absolutely true.

    Oh yeah- I put my (pay on publication) order in for the LRP Hill book. It'll be my.. fourth edition, but- well, see above!

    I exhausted my remaining credit balance jumping on this book. even so it was a hesitant jump. I am extremely nervous about the future. I'm not necessarily pessimistic, but I don't sleep very well lately. I told my wife that the next Suntup will be my last for a while but I think even that is a little naive. I want to finish out the Little Book series. That might be about it for my collecting this year. I just don't know.

    I would LOVE to get an entire set of Hill's LP books. If everything was normal and thumping along I would plan on it--bake it into my collecting goals along with Little Books and non-Bentley Graveyard Editions and Suntup non-King numbered editions and whatever gems SST puts out.

    But I just don't know.

    Jeff, on the good side of that, if 20thCS doesn't ship until when?? December? That's a long time for things to swing around before you need to decide on the next LP Hill book, IF it's even next. Might be further.
    Yeah, I think that would be good. But I'm also rooting for Brian and the 3 Pauls (Suntup, Miller, Fry) and Dan and Mindy and Jerad and all the small press publishers who will struggle as funds dry up. I might take a break but I want you all to be here when I get back to it.
