    Probably not. It's not something the accountants like us to offer.

      I think our biggest regret over the Lifetime Memberships is NOT the people who bought them for $500 back in the early 1990s (and have since gotten tens of thousands of dollars worth of books), it's the number of people who saw what a GREAT deal our Lifetime Memberships were and then bought Lifetime Memberships to other presses over the years that promptly went out of business with their money. I talked to one of our Lifetimers who told me he spent the first $10,000 he "saved" thanks to our membership on memberships to other presses that never came close to "earning out." Sometimes he didn't even get ONE book from them. Often, he only got one or two. I felt pretty bad when I heard that. I mean, he knew exactly what he was getting into with each membership, but it still sucks.

            Being a lifetime member with multiple other presses (not Cemetery Dance, except some book lines of CD) I can speak to the truth of that - with some I get one book a year and will never get my money back, exceptions are Bad Moon Books and PS Publishing. I love both of them and the care they give to the lifetime members. But Cemetery Dance has been the class act when it comes to lifetime members, you guys could have dropped lifetime members or started multiple imprints and locked out lifetime members, or as another recent small press you could have changed your publishing name and dropped all your lifetime members. Cemetery Dance had some slow years and I would assume monetary problems (but I don't know), and you never once cut out your lifetime members. Kudos to Cemetery Dance!

                    Maybe shipping these abroad first would speed thing up considerably??

                            I believe our regular traycase guy is working on the Exorcist/Legion box right now, although I don't have that on the production update page for some reason. The Mailman will hopefully be in the first half of next year. It's going to be a very busy winter in the land of the Lettered Editions!
