    I wish. Also just so everyone is aware, most if not all of these bonus items will be done through teespring. We've got clothing items, mugs, and artwork items all lined up. If anyone has any suggestions for stuff they'd like to see based off of what teespring has to offer feel free to post it here.

    This isn't from Teespring and I'm not a CDCC member so I suppose this is kind of an irrelevant response, but FWIW I'm more about desk/library-oriented knickknacks than t-shirts, book bags, etc., and this is a cheap offering...costs $3.76 for a clear paperweight that could have the CD logo:

    The reason we're doing teespring in particular is because of it's "print on demand" nature. It kinda takes all the pressure off of us for actually getting the stuff made, we make less money doing it through Teespring, but it's really about the only way we can offer something new each month for the CDCC. That said I have a wood carved paper weight design that we might offer to everyone at some point. If I make those (like my wood carvings) they wouldn't be CDCC exclusive. I'm mostly just not sure how cheaply I can make them for.

    On that same page (second link), Dan, there's a wooden nickle with a logo burnt into it...maybe if you did something like that it'd be be a neat little item to offer (that would be right up your alley, I imagine). Cool little trinkets like that are fun to put on one's bookshelves.

    Ron, some advise. Never accept wooden nickles

    Anybody pull the trigger on today's offer? I was keeping an eye on Camelot's website to see if copies would become available, then the CDCC email came through. This was an easy choice for me.

    I passed. Do not know the authors work well enough to justify the cost.

    No, but- I do have couple of days to cave. The author is- imho- the best working Weird Fiction writer in modern times, and one of the handful of whom I buy EVERYTHING from... But- this is uber pricey for a novella that will almost certainly appear in one of her upcoming SS collections, and I cannot justify it. Today.

    And, yay- I finally get to disagree with the otherwise erudite and simpatico Ron Clinton, and say that since I am fortunate enough to keep my books and papers in a dwelling with four walls and a roof (and, I absolutely do NOT take that lightly in these economically crazy-tough, housing-challenged times), that I find "Paper Weights", and the like totally, and bizarrely unuseful, and very much prefer the vastly utilitarian T-shirts, Tote Bags, Ball Caps, et al. But, even better would be an exclusive, original Halloween anthology every year. I think there is still one owed from an older club, but it seems to me to be the kind of thing that Rich built his vision on all those years ago, and why we all love it here- even with all the bumps and roadblocks of the last decade. Would love to see something like that every year for the CDCC.

    I don't think we've ever done a exclusive Halloween book for the CDCC or any club. We've done a handful of "this is only available to preorder for 48 hours only" Halloween books. Unfortunately the last one of these we did the author hasn't finished writing yet, which is probably why we haven't done anymore.

    The plan had been to make it an annual tradition, but we didn’t feel right announcing another one until that one was finished.

    That IS one of the things we’ve been a lot more careful about in the last decade: we try not to announce unwritten books anymore because we’ve had a couple drag out like this. We still get authors and their agents asking us to announce books before they are written, but unless we absolutely have to for contractual reasons, we don’t.

    This I don't understand from the writer's point of view. Why would they want the book announced before being written? That stresses me out--from either point of view: author and publisher--just thinking about it...

    Ah, right. I guess I was thinking of the forthcoming HALLOWEEN CARNIVAL, but that is a reprint anthology, now that I look at it. Since we're "here"- is there an update on that volume? I wasn't a CDCC #3 member, unfortunately, and won't be owed a copy when it comes out, but- it looks like a cool book, none-the-less, and hope I can snag one on the secondary market.

    Which book are we talking about here? Halloween Carnival? If so that book wasn't part of a club or anything. It's actually hasn't even been officially announced. CDCC 3 already received their exclusive books.

    I'm not a fan, as either an author or publisher. Sometimes it's because they want to try to leverage the announcement into a sale of other rights (trade, foreign, etc). Sometimes they just want to be able to point at it as a thing they're doing right now. Either way, we try to avoid the practice as much as possible these days!

    Apparently this time two Rons don't make it right.

    Man, I'm 0-2 on this dang book: Product page says from the CD Collector's Set # 3, not Club. Sorry for the confusion- all on my part. In any case- would still like to get this book!
