    Well that's what I'm saying. I don't think he can offer to fix them. I think it's just "sorry this is the way they are, there's nothing I can do about it, if you're not happy I'll gladly give you a refund if you return the book to me" kind of a thing.

    Ah, I see. And yeah I agree. Though I would have loved the chance to buy one of the original "defective" books that people send back.

    To be clear, I really don't think people will send their books back for a refund. If that was the option Paul gave them.

It's really unfortunate and there's not really anything he could've done about it either. You'd have to be really really lucky to catch something like that ahead of time.
    No doubt about posting over on TDT. Enter at your own risk.

    I have a CD book that has a double limitation page but I'm ok with it. I like the uniqueness that is adds. If I had a S/L Misery, I believe I'd feel the same way and leave it as is.

    If folks end up returning copies, I'd buy a returned copy in a heartbeat.

    I returned my copy with the double artist signature page for two reason:

    1. I wanted a perfect copy
    2. I wanted the same copy everyone else had and not some rare error edition (I debated like hell over this.)

    I also had an edition that was numbered in blue.

    I kind of want my copy back.

    I respect your choice, Jason and it being your book, it should be how you want it. I guess a chance to break away from the herd on this one would be the draw for me. My rebel spirit if you will

    The blue number variant would be really cool to own also!

    I did not realize you had the blue number as well.

    I think it's interesting that collectors even look at this sort of thing. From my perspective the color of the pen isn't even something that would cross my mind when numbering a book.

    This came up because the limitation page states the first 185 are numbered in blue ink and the last 15 are numbered in red ink. The red indicate they were never offered for sale. Someone noticed their copy was numbered in blue ink. I actually checked mine to see what color it was numbered.

    Interesting. That seems like a very odd thing to do.

    I think the ink used in identifying the limitation number/letter was also done with Centipede's Salem's Lot.

    I guess I just don't understand the purpose behind it. Like why would you even have copies that weren't offered for sale?

    Oh, I see. In Suntup's case, the red numbered edition go to the subscribers, I believe. So those numbers are lifetime numbers and they are never open to sales. I think that's what it means.

    I can't say for sure but I believe they were what we normally think of as Publisher/Contributor copies. I say that because Jason Sechrest has a red ink copy. I assume it was given to him for providing web content promoting the book prior to its release.

    And I'm probably really going to be in trouble now with my reply.

    Since the page sequence issue has been a topic of discussion I thought I would post the note received from Suntup Editions today regarding the issue:

    Dear Friends,

    It was recently brought to my attention that four pages in the Numbered edition of Misery appear out of sequence. This occurs between page 226 and 227. This is a binding error caused by the binder responsible for folding and gathering the book blocks. To be specific, half of one of the signature sections were folded backwards, resulting in those pages being out of order. There are no missing or damaged pages; it is only these few pages that appear out of sequence.

    Our binder has taken full responsibility for this, which occurs only in the Numbered edition. It does not affect the Lettered or the Artist Gift edition.

    As you probably know, I strive for perfection when it comes to each release from Suntup Editions. I was of course upset when I heard about this, but at the same time, I realize that some things are outside of our control, and when a hiccup happens such as this, you learn from it, and do everything you can to make it right.

    I have seriously considered the options, one of which would be to allow anyone who is not happy with the out-of-sequence pages, to send the book back for repair at no cost. If there were only one or two copies with the error, it would make sense to do this, but it appears that the full run of the Numbered edition was impacted.

    As a result, if I were to make this offer, it would create a "second state" of this edition, which would impact the integrity of the edition. Further, if the value of the book is important to you, that would also be impacted.

    The state in which you have the book currently, is how it has been issued by the publisher, without any modifications. It is not a structural issue, or a printing issue, there is no physical damage, and the error is uniform across all copies.

    If one were to do a 'return and repair' on the book, it would have to be done on 100% of the copies, and the likelihood of everyone sending their book back is minimal. The vast majority of owners who have voiced their opinion feel the same way; that they have no problem with it. Aside from that, there is always the risk of damage and/or loss to the books as they are being handled and shipped back and forth.

    Having said that, I have decided that the only way to make this right and to retain the "first state" integrity and value of each person's edition, is to offer anyone who wishes to return their book, a full refund of the price paid. If you wish to take me up on that, simply reply to this email.

    Everyone is different when it comes to book collecting. For some, this kind of mishap is insignificant. For others, perhaps it is more than that. But either way, my heart is with you; the fan, the collector, the Stephen King Constant Reader. It is with people who love books, who love beautifully made books, and my mission is to continue to make some of the finest editions out there for your enjoyment. And when mishaps occur, all I can do is make it right in the best possible way.

    My sincerest apologies for this error, and I hope this does not impact your love or reverence for the book.

    Yours truly,
    Paul Suntup

    P.S. An errata sheet can be downloaded here

    As things turned out, Iím now happy to be a Gift Edition owner with a book that is 100% correct. I get that things happen and I respect and admire the way Paul has taken ownership of the issue and offered a solution. But a book priced at the level of the Artistís Edition needs to be flawless, and neither alternative wouldíve been for me an pleasing option, neither keeping a flawed limited nor sending it back for a refund and thus owning no copy at all. The folks at TDT.org are in my estimation too quick to dismiss it as an innocuous issue...if I were an owner of an Artistís Edition, Iíd be awfully disappointed. Looks like being a cheap bastard finally worked to my advantage!
