    I feel the same way. I wonder how many publishers, if any, will consider shipping the book before the slipcase ships, especially with older titles that are well past the expected publication date. I imagine that it is probably too costly for them to consider, but, I have seen some small presses do that in the past; so, I guess that there may be a small chance.

      The best case scenario is that the additional shipping costs simply erase their profit margin for such titles, and it's entirely likely they'd lose money because (speaking for US publishers) you aren't supposed to ship slip cases via media mail (note the high costs of shipping when ordering one from CD).

        That makes complete sense. Didn't realize media mail had such restrictions.

          Media mail is technically for books, music cds, and movies, maybe video games. Everything else has to go a different shipping method. Honestly I'm surprised the USPS hasn't gotten rid of media mail yet. There's no way they make any money on it.

            Jeff's latest unboxing of TEN-WORD TRAGEDIES reminded me that that's probably a book I should take a second (well, now, a third) look at. Like Jeff mentioned, I have no idea who the musician is, but I like the idea of the anthology theme and the line-up is solid.

              Man, this title really deserves to be sold out! It's a solid anthology with an incredible list of contributors.

                Unfortunately, the signed edition is sold out. I checked after I posted the video.

                  Well it took long enough, haha!

                  Either way, Ron, I'd still highly recommend picking up the unsigned edition.

                    Ah, that’s too bad. Oh well, it’s not like I didn’t have weeks of opportunity to grab a signed edition.

                    Probably wait for a discounted trade to show up on PS2.

                      I believe someone on the forum was picking up GASLIGHT, GHOSTS, AND GHOULS from PS. I’m eyeballing that traycased edition. Anybody have any insight into the author?

                          I bought and read the trade...my first experience with R. Chetwynd-Hayes.. It was good, but not as entertaining or charming as I’d imagined.

                            I really dig the traycase on this one, but I'll probably hold off. It's a little pricey for me to take the gamble on. Thanks for the feedback!

                              I was awfully sorry to see Pete Crowther's essay this morning r.e. his diagnosis of dementia...very unfortunate thing to happen to anyone. I wish him and those supporting him all the best. In the event anyone who would like to read it missed it, here it is:

                                I had not gotten around to opening todays newsletter yet. This is heartbreaking.
