    I think I found out where all the extra traycases for Biofire went: Camelot has them! So my lettered copy will not have to live in a damaged traycase now.

    Oh, I'd have some fun with it. I could use them to make my bookshelf look fancier than it is. Or I could use them to pimp out the presentation on another book that fit.

    Or for meta-humor, when available. I have a storage traycase that looks like an Edgar Allen Poe collection amongst my books. But if one were to open the traycase they would find a flask!

    I think the most aggregious example of over production was on the gift edition of IT. I think we had something like 2 full pallets of extra slipcases for that book.

    Interesting. So much for that.

    Dan, you could retire on the profits from those IT slipcases

    Unfortunately there just isn't really a home to give these extras. Generally speaking people just aren't interested in a case that doesn't go to their book. And if they already have the book, they already have a case for it. Luckily in more recent years the case manufactures have gotten much better about being closer to our actual order quantity (they're allowed something like 10% over or under our order quantity).

    Hey Dan, any chance you guys have an extra traycase for Biofire hidden away somewhere?

    A hearty "LOL" is an acceptable response here, for what it's worth, as I recognize CD published that one over 20 years ago.

    that's what I was worried about. Ah well, simple enough fix I suppose. Thanks, Dan!

    I have that one marked down for my next Camelot order...really looking forward to it. If anything, it sounds perhaps even better than some of the bookish titles that Mark Valentine has released through Tartarus, and that’s saying something.
