    Preach it, Brother! They sure are and it's making it difficult for me on my budget. Bumped my budget up a bit this year but it certainly wasn't enough to keep up with all the great books coming out lately.

    SubPress has definitely been raising their prices lately - not sure if they realized their books were underpriced, or they're having to offset some increases in production costs, or just testing the water, especially when compared to what Suntup has been charging for their AEs lately.

    I need to decide if I want this new one - I have the others from them, but books are getting expensive.

    I know that it's technically three novels in one, but holy crap!

    Thanks for the "heads up". I've really liked what I've read of Vandermeer's work, though it's been limited to Annihilation. I will admit that the first time I read Annihilation I found it to be kind of a slog. A read it again because I felt like I didn't give it a fair shake and let my expectations get in the way. The second time I read it, I pretty much thought it was a masterpiece. I keep meaning to get to the other two books in the series, but was waiting for the CD edition to come out to do so.

    I have The Complete Borne and Dead Astronauts from Sub Press on my shelf waiting to be read, but they are a little ways due the queue. I'm on the fence about this one. The set isn't cheap, but that FOMO is worming its way into my heart.

These are some of my absolute favorite weird fiction/fantasy stories/novels and am so glad to seem them collected like this. This set may seem a little pricey at first, but considering what is included, it is actually a great deal. Can't imagine that this one won't sell out quickly once it is officially announced. Figured I would let the forum know so that no one misses out on the opportunity to own these fantastic stories!
    Thanks for posting. Sounds intriguing but I am not familiar enough with the authors work to jump straight in. I may cave if it does not sell out too soon.

    Yea, I keep trying to find someone to read between Scalzi novels. I will probably give up and re-read the entire Old Man's War series.

    I really enjoyed the Murderbot novellas - the novel was a chore to read. Not sure if the premise got stale after five novellas, or maybe Muderbot is only good in 125 page doses.

    Regardless, I bought the second book from SubPress. Maybe I can just sell them once I have them. Who am I kidding - I don't sell books. I barely can trade them.

    Same. I just wish I'd enjoyed the book more. I finished it a few nights ago...it was my first exposure to the character and stories. I had picked up the book as a kind of impulse buy, after several enthusiastic recommendations from folks whose opinions I trusted and who likened it to John Scalzi's work. I didn't dislike it, mind you, and found portions of it generally entertaining, but it did not live up to my expectations by any measure. I've also pre-ordered the limited of the novel (done before I'd finished DIARIES and my hopes were still high), but can't say I'm anticipating that one to any great degree. Really unfortunate, but sometimes gambles pay off, and sometimes they don't. I'll at least have a matching-number set of the two Sub Press volumes that should do okay on the aftermarket, should I decide to sell.
    I picked this up on Audible long ago as the description sounded like it could be a Scalzi like story. Found it mediocre.
