    Received my copy today. This thing is a beauty and rather large. The case is slightly taller than the Knowing Darkness Slipcase. The case is well constructed and make a great presentation for the book and coin. The coin is fantastic and the book is really nice. The paper stock is very thick, almost poster-board thick. Not sure what I think of the paper stock yet but overall this is a great addition to my shelves.

    Isn't that just the sig sheet? We're not sure why we made that choice on the sig sheet. It's nice, but it's definitely a heavier stock than we normally would've chosen.

    The signature sheet may be a little thicker but the actual pages are close if not the same.

    Yea I guess it's close. As for the paper stock, I'm pretty sure it's just the same "weight" we use on all of the SK limited editions. Or at least it feels the same as the two of them I just looked at in comparison.

    I will have to compare them side by side.

    Maybe it feels thicker because the pages are smaller? More compact means less room to bend. You know what I mean? I don't know if I'm explaining my thought all that clearly.

    That could be it but it is not much smaller in regards to height. Certainly thinner though. I will try to compare tonight.

    Still working on the lettereds. Should probably be today or tomorrow I think. I know I saw your order yesterday. It's been a painfully slow process, doesn't help we ran out of packing peanuts yesterday as well. These books are chewing through our supply. I think we used 20+ bags just on the limiteds alone, and the lettereds are using like twice as many peanuts per box as the limiteds. Better safe than damaged in shipping though.

    Yours definitely shipped. Guess the notices just haven't been sent. In fact as of yesterday we're done shipping Gwendy other than some PC orders.

    Congratulations Dan, you finally got through Blatty's Lost Screen Plays and Gwendy's. Guessing you can't wait for the next Lonely Road announcement!

    Lonely Road stuff usually isn't so bad, but the Blatty Scripts where a mess because of how big they were, and Gwendy was a mess because of the coins.

    Right now we're staring down the dark tunnel that is all of the orders from the 50% off sale and the mess that is opening all of the boxes from PS Publishing that have Tommy Knockers in them.

    That's great news, Dan.
    But I am worried about these shipping notices.
    Any idea when they'll be sent?

    And have the S/L and lettered been shipped together, in one box?

    One box. I'll send you the tracking. I wouldn't worry about the packing, I went overkill on the packing for these. I even ordered double walled boxes for the lettereds (which is a first).
