    Both deadly.
    My wife and I are always talking about planning a trip to Australia, but then I stumble on one of those articles about all the crazy creatures you fine folks have down there... I am not a fan of the creepy crawlies.

    Is this a preview of what's to come?

    Well, it's not as if any of them intend to read the book EVER, so what does it matter if pages are out of sequence. As long as all copies of the limited are the same and their value is unaffected that's all they care really about. If I had been lucky enough to get a copy I would have felt the same way. Yes, I'd be disappointed that the book isn't as perfect as it should have been, but if I can sell it for 6 times the purchase price, which seems to be the case, I don't think I'd be that disappointed.

    Ok, this post got my attention because it is quoting me saying something that would be very out of character for me to say. I generally only speak for myself and avoid speaking for a group. Although I agree with the quote it just did not feel like something I would say. I had to go back and find the post and find the context of when I said it. Also wondered if I drunk posted something and did not remember. Turns out is a statement from Paul Suntup's letter to owners of the limited.

    My Misery Artist/Gift edition arrived yesterday. And it's amazing! I've seen Lettered editions of some books that don't even compare to this edition. Seeing that the image that we've all seen is only the slipcover - there's an actual dustjacket with original artwork! Plus the book without the dustjacket is beautiful.

    Well done Paul!

    Oh - and Paul called me a ninja yesterday. I'll take it!

It's a great looking book though.
    Dan, any idea when the gift editions will be sent out?

    After The Listener. We can only really ship one project at a time and we had already started in on The Listener first. So hopefully The Listener doesn't take too long but I would say probably not until sometime next week.

    Got my copy of Misery on Monday. It is really a work of art. Very impressed.

    It's on a whole another level for sure.
