    Yeah, Paul sent me a PM about my double signature pages. I haven’t seen something like it before. The closest I’ve seen is my upside down map in CD’s ‘Salem’s Lot edition, which I did nothing about, and my copy of CP’s Ender’s Game that has glue all over the pages.

    I do wish I could go back in time and redo the day it was announced. I had the rights to a Lettered copy but couldn't afford it. I took the first low ball offer thrown at me and this was before I knew how the rights transfer was going to work. I screwed myself out of a fortune. I cannot bear to look at the pics of the collector that got my letter because I might just have to hobble myself for being so stupid.

    OK, that's all the whining I will do on the subject because I am still fortunate enough to own the numbered and man! It is NICE!
    I did the same thing. I did get enough from the deal to buy the numbered edition though. So it's not a total loss.

    Dear lord! Is anybody going to pay that price?! It's like the lettered copy of READY PLAYER ONE that was on Ebay a while back; the seller was trying to get $10,000 for it. I don't know if these people are looking for a hail mary of a sale or what. Those in the know are most likely aware of the insane markup, those not in the know probably aren't in the market.

    No doubt and from what I've seen the book looks great, just not $4,200 great...

    I will join other people's sentiments about starting to double-think passing on The Haunting of Hill House. Hopefully there will be another Suntup book I can get in on as their execution so far is fantastic.

    I am assuming he established the price based on the fact that one sold on eBay for $4,000.

    Truthfully, if someone offered me $4k for my copy, I’d have an extremely difficult time saying no.

    Someone sold there pre-order rights on eBay in late June for $4,050. I was shocked at the price it fetched. It also appears that one was listed today with a Buy It Now price of $1,995 and it sold. Those are the only two I have seen actually sell.

    Two grand almost seems reasonable . . . four is crazy, and yeah, one sold, but still.

    I'm still amazed at the numbered edition - I only own lettered edition of any book (and it's pretty boring if I'm honest,) but Misery feels like how lettered editions are supposed to be.

    I agree with all your points. 4K just feels excessive. I own several lettered edition books and the quality of this book tops them all. Of course the lettered editions I own ran from $150 to $250 retail and the price on this exceeded them by a long shot. The way I look at it is that I feel I got great value for the price I paid. That was a concern based on the price.
