    "SB Auction . . . what can I say that others here haven't already said with better words and deeper emotions? You died so young. Before your potential could be realized. Sure, you were unsigned, but aren't we all unsigned editions at some point? The fact is, no one gave you a chance to be signed! Maybe you were illegal. Maybe you were lost. And maybe you never wanted to be the center of attention. But for a few days in May, you were entertaining as hell. Making me forget that I'm in the middle of two legal battles involving a coven of lawyers and more backstabbing than a Game of Thrones series finale. And for that distraction, I will always be grateful. I hope the end of the auction means the beginning of something wonderful. I'd imagine you will become spectacular reading copies for someone somewhere sometime. But right now, I just want to say goodbye . . . and thanks."

    That's villainously hilarious!

    You know, no one ever really did tell us when we were actually permitted to discuss the previous time this sort of thing happened -- we couldn't publicly discuss the matter due to the ongoing legal proceedings between the printer, law enforcement, and the employee, which can be a slow process -- so I don't think we'll be able to comment any further on this particular auction for a long time.

    Take that to mean whatever you'd like it to mean.

    Having been involved in a couple of criminal cases in the past where I was told 'do not talk about this while the case is pending' it has been my experience that they never come back and tell you when things are resolved.

    How I take it--it was an unfortunate occurrence capping off a very long and rough journey for a beautiful edition. It's part of the story. It's CD lore. It's none of anyone's business other than the people who took the books, the ones who had the books taken from them, and law enforcement.

    I'm just anxiously awaiting my UPS shipping notice and letting the world spin toward the moment I'll have my book.

    We're getting closer to that. I'm thinking we should be done with the Gift Edition orders come Wednesday next week and onto all the orders that have Limited Editions on them next week. The Limiteds will be a bit slower than the Gifts due to numbering and casing the books. But things are moving along more quickly than I expected them to.

    Dan, will the gift and S/L editions ship in one large box, like the Gwendy's S/L and lettered were? That packing was awesome btw.

    No. Lettereds aren't shipping yet. Gwendy was kind of a special case as we needed to wait to have a final book to start the cases for both the limiteds and the lettereds. With Sleeping Beauties we were able to produce the cases for the gift editions and the limited editions off of the dummy books, but we don't trust doing that with the lettered editions. So the lettereds will ship later this year.

    I realize the lettereds aren't shipping yet, Dan. I was referring to the two editions that are being shipped, the gift and S/L. Because the Gwendy's S/L and lettered were shipped together, I was wondering if the two Sleeping Beauties editions would be shipped the same way or separately.

    Ohhh sorry I misread your post. Thought you where asking if the lettered was shipping with the gift edition. Yes if the a Gift Edition was ordered on the same order as a Limited Edition they will ship in the same box. The tentative schedule is something like this.

    gift editions -> multiple copy gift editions -> gift + limited editions -> limited editions -> anything else that doesn't really fit into any of those

    A ? for Dan or Brian - Have you been able to determine if there are/will be any unclaimed Sleeping Beauties gift editions? It never hurts to ask. ~Cap
    Books are weapons in the war of ideas.

    There will be, and there's quite a few. We won't be offering them until we're done with all the preorders though. Need to make sure we account for damages and what not.

    As always take the shipping notices with a grain of salt. They just mean the shipping label has been printed, not that the actual package has left the building. As it stands right now we've got all the people who requested a specific number's label printed and their books numbered. I'm hoping to start numbering books for everyone else this afternoon, just waiting for some table space to open up.

    Sounds good, Dan! I got my Gift Edition, and I'm looking forward to the LE.
