    Well, after numerous days of going back and forth, I finally settled in the Centipede Press edition. It came down to two things: 1. The size of the book. I really like the idea of a large oversized edition.
    2. Timing. Centipede’s edition isn’t up for presale yet, which gives me time to save up more money and not derail prior plans for upcoming purchases (three Masters of the Weird Tale volumes in the next several months, along with Dune).

    I’m hoping to give Suntup a try in the future, though. If I didn’t have the option of a Centipede edition, I would have pulled the trigger on this with no hesitation. The book looks great.

    The Suntup edition is sold out. It's Centipede or secondary market now. Centipede is ALSO doing We've Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson as well. So if you passed on Suntup, you can now get a set.

    You can't go wrong with either of these. Congratulations!

    Wise choice, SM. Depending on what the final price turns out to be (I still can't quite believe it's going to be close to $500, but I guess we'll see), I may join you.

    I sure wish Suntup was doing a Gift Edition of this one.

    I saw this in today’s newsletter, so make that reason number 3 for going with Centipede. I hope that Castle is done in the same format as Hill House, though I’m unsure if my budget could handle two $500 books.

    Jerad is always thinking in sets. His vintage horror series. The Blackburn novels. The Cornell Woolrich books. And so many others. I would be surprised if Castle wasn't also oversized with the same artist and treatment.

    So do I. I don't know if I would have opted for the Gift Edition since I also wanted the chance to get a Suntup number, but it would have been nice to have the option. I wonder if eliminating the gift edition option was part of an agreement between Paul and Jerad. Maybe they tried to level it out as much as possible. I sure hope Paul goes back to offering gift editions.

    Well, for the guy who never wins at anything, I was delighted to learn that I will be one of the 50 customers to receive the planchette with my numbered edition of Hill House! I'm only posting it here because you fine folks are the only people in my world who will understand the thrill. I'm so happy!

    I should have saved my "oops I stabbed the book!" prank for this one.

    You may have just jinxed yourself, you may want to open this one with a plastic knife!

    Thanks guys! Now if I unbox Hill House and a brass key falls out, I might just die. So I'll have to have my son post that video.

    Suntup just released their Cujo print, which I think is pretty darn awesome:
    https://shop.suntup.press/collection...12275231457360

    I'm not a big enough King fan to spring for these prints in general, but I am a HUGE Glen Orbik fan so I am really tempted by their set for The Colorado Kid and Joyland:

    I know, right? I really would love the set frames on my wall. I also think the cover for Femme would make one heck of an art print.
