    Definitely. Probably not going to be having much more coming in for a while, just Ron's Twelve Gauge and the next Maelstrom set after it's ready

    This arrived on Saturday, thanks to Kim at Camelot

    Only have one that is not currently on my shelf, which is Twelve Gauge, which Ron will be sending back to me shortly

    I am amazed at how quickly Twelve Gauge sold out considering Pitfall, the previous Essentials book, is still available at the publisher

    That is odd. However, you'd be surprised at how often people forget to check the publisher's website, just assuming a given title is sold out and going right to eBay and overpaying.

    Yeah, I've seen plenty of Centipede Press titles listed in eBay for over the retail price even though the book isn't sold out! The publisher's site is where I look first as I'd rather give my money to the publisher unless the price is low enough. I especially prefer the publisher over people saying they need the money when they obviously have the money since I know how much things costed and they say it for everything

    This arrived today!

    Surprised by the low print run, though the run was determined by pre-orders. I was expecting something along the lines 100-150. This is one of the lowest runs I have for a numbered book. It's not the lowest though

    The numbered edition of Jeffrey Thomas's Lost in Darkness (also by Bad Moon) is an edition of 42 for the same reason.

    Nice adds. Bad moon Books tends to do very small hard cover releases most always under 100 copies. Don't know why but that seems to be the norm on most but not all of their book releases.

    They only print enough copies to cover preorders. They'd probably get more interest if they advertised a bit, even just some social media stuff, but the only time I know to order something from them is when an author plugs their own books.

    That's how I first found out about the book. I did see it mentioned on the Bad Moon Facebook page, but Saw it first from Keith. Didn't know they mainly did smaller print runs since I don't typically buy their books. Only have one other that I can think of right now, which is John Little's book Scavenger Hunt

    At least Bad Moon has a Facebook page. I wish Thunderstorm had one, but have not seen one from them.

    Thunderstorm has a newsletter they send out when new stuff is up for order. However, I think you need to be a book club member to get early notice, because every email I've gotten has announced that something is shipping and a few are left to purchase.

    I'm on their newsletter list, but yeah, don't get early notifications for most things of theirs. I'd be interested in membership with them, but I don't have that kinda money available for buying books.

    Been interested in it since I saw it, and the price made it free with my $10 credit from getting in on their indiegogo campaign on day 1

    Woke up to find this by the dining room table Friday

    DSC01614.jpgDSC01615.jpgDSC01616.jpg

    Given the length of the book I will probably actually start in a day or two before Halloween since I'll be starting in on NaNoWriMo on the first
