    It would be nice to meet him, but I already ordered my signed copy from www.waterstreetbooks.com ,so I think I'll skip NYC.

    New FIREMAN offering: A signed/limited exclusive through Goldsboro (1/350). Typically Goldsboro exclusives are just trade editions with the sig/lim. page bound in as so I assume that'll be the case for this volume, but still...it's a Hill limited of only 350 copies at a decent price. For those not opting for PS' S/L edition, this would make for a nice (and cheaper) substitute.

    I grabbed one, too.

    I may still get the PS Pub. S/L edition and sell this Goldsboro once I see the details and pricing on it, but if that doesn't work out this'll be a great edition to fall back on. Heck, I like Hill so much I may even just keep both!

    Yeah, I'm not too sure anymore if I'm going to make the trek down to Portland or not anymore...I don't have shelf space for doubles, let alone three copies of the same book. Since I've already seen him two/three times, it makes it additionally hard to justify the time and expense. Still, though...it IS Joe Hill...so we'll see.

    Thank You for posting that. I've been watching the Waterstones website everyday, so far nothing there. Now I see why.

    Ordered one.

    I will definitely be there. went to his last appearances at Powell's, the last one with my niece. She really wants to see him again. I also plan to get my Christmasland mug signed!

    Ggrrr, don't remind me -- I sure wish I hadn't cheaped out on that one and skipped it. Oh well, live and learn.

    Ha, Siep! We shall see, my friend. Hell, I probably didn't even get the questions right, lol.

    I just finished it tonight. Great story, definitely his best yet, as far as I'm concerned.

    I won't post any spoilers, but one of my favorite lines in the book was "An old flame".

    The only error that jumped out at me was the incorrect use of a Dodge Challenger as a police cruiser (page 394 or so). It should have been a Dodge Charger, of course.

    It is a great story. Noticed today the book is over 60 pages longer than the ARC. Not sure if it is just in the formatting or if there is more in the final version.

    I've ordered a signed/#d UK HC 1st copy from Goldsboro, and I won a signed US 1st HC in a contest (getting that one inscribed, actually) and I'll likely order a PS Pub S/L...but I don't have any of these copies yet and likely won't for a while...getting envious of all those who've had a chance to actually read the thing. :-(

    I don't know if there are any differences, but I had the ARC and purposely didn't read it, just in case.
