    That great news -- definitely in for a copy of that.

    Got my shipment of THE ARCHITECT OF SLEEP, THE SWORDS OF LANKHMAR, and the Alan Dean Foster book on its way, Really looking forward to the Foster book.

    If Centipede does the sequel, that would be really cool.

    I did go for it after hearing that Dune won't be out until at least the last week of August. The other thing that swayed me was that Jerad hopes to publish the sequel. Apparently it was written, but never published, and if the author likes the treatment of the first book, and I guess the response from the collector world, he may let Jerad publish the next book.
    That would be really cool! Fingers crossed for you and anyone else who picked up the title.

    Great point about this title. Seems like fans of this book would love to see a follow-up to this story and maybe this is something the Author and Jerad can make happen.

    Too many $100 (more or less) books coming at us every other day it seems. Think we're reaching the tipping point.

    I certainly feel that way as well. One of the few times I've actually caught a title before they are sold out or one that is at a price point I could consider.

    Oh well. Passing on it as Fantasy isn't really in my wheel house these days.

    I always feel as though I’m making a mistake by passing on any Centipede release, but I did pass on this one. Fantasy just isn’t my thing, and reading up on it the book apparently ends midstream, on a bit of a cliffhanger, with no chance the other four volumes that the author saw necessary to complete the story will ever see the light of day. With those two issues at play, I couldn’t pull the trigger at $100. I might’ve opted for a copy as a curiosity, see what the acclaim is all about, but $100 just isn’t in the cards, unfortunately.

    That was basically how I felt. I looked at it, read a few reviews, thought about it, and realized I have no attachment to this book or story. However there is a $150 lettered, of a story I love, from an author that I like, which I keep not buying because I had become sidetracked by purchases like this. Trying really hard to get this lettered and bypass spontaneous purchases.

    As a thought, and then maybe Dan should move these posts elsewhere, do not forgot about places like Camelot books which offer no payment now pre-orders on many new releases. But I've laid off of them as well because, you know, eventually those need to be paid for as well. I have a two book backlog of pay laters that need cleared out before I will incur any more cost. The money for both books is sitting in a separate account waiting.

Might be a weird reaction, but it really makes me stop and reevaluate what I do with my dwindling funds these days. It used to be that one could keep up with a good general collection of most of the new releases every few weeks or so, and on a reasonable budget. Not anymore.
    I understand the impulse to be frustrated when feeling overwhelmed with too many choices (and not an infinite budget), but just try to focus on selective priorities and not get distracted. Easier said than done, I know, with the FOMO we all have amid the rush of offerings posted just about every week. Heck, I wish I had more of that focus myself…example, I’m trying really hard to resist THE GHOUL AND THE CAPE, and I don’t even like Malerman. But I’d like to think I’m getting better.
