    The one we offered to the CDCC on Friday and have been hitting wider groups of the past 2 days? That'll start shipping this week. We're still offering it for sale, but I expect we'll be done today or tomorrow.

    Dan, any movement on Joe Hill's STRANGE WEATHER? The trade came out in October of 2017, the CD limited announced for pre-order a month before. He has a new collection, FULL THROTTLE, due out in October/Fall of 2019...any chance the limited of STRANGE WEATHER will appear yet another new Joe Hill trade hits the streets?

    There are quite a number of lettered edition traycases currently in production. Any idea whereabouts Damnation Game is in the order of production?
    This is my oldest pre-order from CD (going on almost 6 years).

    I should actually have a really good idea of where this one stands in about 30 days. We're looking at a plan with one of our high end vendors that would take on some of the larger jobs from our usual traycase maker. Normally, they're not a good fit for these, but they have some slow time coming up. Ping me in early May and I will know if Damnation Game is one of those, and where it stands in their queue if it is. (I'll try to remember to post on my own, but things get crazy busy at times and I forget!) Thanks for your patience!

    Any word on the lettered edition of screenplays? It's literally been 'at the traycasers' for years and may become a viable contender with 'in layman's terms' and the like for taking over a decade to see the light of day. Any credible information for when this is going to ship would be greatly appreciated.

    I believe our regular case maker is working on that one and the last 3 signature series lettered edition cases right now. He just finished the cases for The Twelve and those should be shipping next week. As far as where that actually puts Screamplays in the shipping out from us queue, I don't really know.

    I don't have specific updates just yet, but now that SLEEPING BEAUTIES (which occupied our main printer for the last six months!) is completed, a bunch of books that have been waiting are about to get rolling, and I'll have a better idea later in the summer of when those three books will be printed. Sorry about the wait!

    Um, I think I forgot to post my April update, so I would say "no, not at all." ha... Let me check in with everyone, and I'll post the current status today or tomorrow!

    STRANGE WEATHER update:

    The interiors of all four volumes are designed and being proofread now, but that process is basically done.

    The signature sheets are being printed now (we needed the artwork for the sheets to finish them) and the sheets will be circulating among the author and the artists as soon as possible. The timing will vary based on their schedules. Once we have a better idea of when each artist will be done signing their sheets, we'll be able to figure out when this is going to the printer.

    Thank you for your patience!

    I'm going to use your question as a jumping off point to finally be able to post something I've wanted to share but couldn't, and hopefully it'll help answer your question a little bit.

    The specific answer to your question is, "I'm not sure when it'll get slotted yet, but we are aware it's a high priority."

    Watch for my next post for a more general reason of WHY I'm not sure of the specific timing yet.

    Thank you for your patience!

    Now that Sleeping Beauties is done, we can share something that was happening behind the scenes...

    As you all know by now, last June one of our printers closed their doors without warning -- and with Sleeping Beauties and other projects trapped inside. (And their deposit payments, never to be seen again, unfortunately.)

    We shifted gears, moved the projects around to our other two printers, and got things rolling again... but a few weeks after we started Sleeping Beauties at the oldest of our printers, the one we printed our very first book with in 1992 (!), they also privately notified us that they had entered bankruptcy proceedings...

    This slowed the production process WAY down, which is why the printing took nearly six months to finish. Every time they went to order in a special material, they had to pay upfront, etc. Theyíve been losing trained staff along the way as people have left. Our favorite account rep at any of the vendors we work with had to bail, which Iím still bummed about.

    We also didnít -- for the obvious reasons -- start any new books with them! That means a lot of books have been getting to the "ready for the printer" stage without one of our main printers to go to...

    The good news is, one of our other printers has completed the process of buying our original printer out of bankruptcy! Their facility is getting rolled into this much bigger and healthier company, and lots of books will get rolling again this summer! The list of books we have ready to printer is long, though, so we're still figuring out how to juggle what needs done. We'll post more specific updates as the plans lock into place.

    Also, we didnít post about this situation sooner because we knew they would finish Sleeping Beauties no matter how the process played out, even if it was the last book they printed and there was one guy there doing it by candlelight, and generally speaking we didnít want to cause a panic among our collectors given the trouble this book had already gone through.

    Thanks again for your patience, and we look forward to catching up on a lot of books later this year!
