    Easy pass for me, but it's interesting to see a publisher branch out to different genres and audiences. Even still, the selection of this one surprises me, but I sure wish Paul success with it.
    Well, considering that I'm not a lettered buyer (even though I should have tried for The Road!!!) the point is moot. I do wonder, really wonder, what I would have done had a numbered edition been offered. Depends on the price point, of course, but I'm betting I would have passed even at $300. Just not my thing. Though I am clapping over here because Paul went for it. And I have no doubts they will sell out nicely.

    The fact that Paul picked it and now seeing you recommend it, I'm curious to read it.
    It is a very quick and enjoyable read. Length of a small novella.

    I would probably still pass, though I'd be tempted.

    Beyond classic fiction, is there a big market for modern literary limited editions? Is there the equivalency of a Cemetery Dance or Subterranean Press that regularly produces limited/lettered editions of non-genre fiction?

    Easton Press leaps to mind, though of course they do literary as well as genre. A quick search on ABE, though, with no hits on my search suggests they did not do BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY. Folio Press would be another outlet. Beyond those two, I can't think of any, but that's probably due more to my lack of familiarity with Literary (with a capital "L") presses than reality.

    Jumping on to the lettered wagon now almost seems like a strategic move. Yeah, you're going to pay two grand for a book you may not really want, but it gets you in the door to have a first shot at the next lettered edition, which may be something you do want.

    If I'm being honest, I suspect that's why most people currently buying the lettereds are going to get this one. Good on Paul for publishing what he wants, but I don't see the folks buying Matheson, McCarthy, and Hill lining up to get The Bridges of Madison County for any other reason.

    That is a very sober observation.

    This pleases me on both levels. . I'm really happy that you are enjoying the story. It is a great yet very dark story.

    Finished this yesterday and really enjoyed the story. It was not are dark as I was expecting. The fathers love, respect and kindness for his son stand out much more for me.

    I agree. Maybe my expectations were out of whack due to the hype, but while the story is dark and bleak, it wasn't nearly as bad as people made it out to be. I really liked it.

    I was unaware of the Facebook announcement but I did receive an email regarding the Broadside and have submitted my claim form. Very generous of Mr. Suntup.

    For sure! I don't remember the wording of the paragraph, but I do remember how it landed, the impact knocking all the strength out of me and reducing me to a sobbing mass on mass transit. I will definitely cherish this broadside. Incredibly generous.

    And to be publishing and shipping Brother well ahead of schedule after rapid-fire shipping Rosemary's Baby and The Road? That's spectacular.

    I am receiving Brother via CD so I will not see that for a while.

    Very pleased and excited to to see this. I didn't spring for the Suntup edition of THE ROAD, but as it is my favorite book I will treasure this broadside...as soon as I receive it, it's getting framed and hung in a prominent spot in my office/library.

    Looking forward, too, of course, to the early arrival of BROTHER.

    I have only ordered I Am Legend by Richard Matheson - the Artist Gift Edition. It did make me eligible to claim the free broadside offer so that is very cool. Thanks Paul Suntup!

    That's the only thing I've ordered from them as well. Most of their stuff is either outside of my price range or scope of interest, but I decided to order this one just to see what all the hoopla's about. This free broadside offer was a nice surprise and I'm glad I was eligible for it. How generous! It sounds very cool. THE ROAD is far and above my favorite novel from Cormac McCarthy.

    Cool. I ended up ordering this as well. However I did not hear anything about the broadside offer. How were you notified of this or was this just part of the ordering process?

    *EDIT* I see there is a link upstream. I did not see an email and I'm not on FB so thanks for the info.

    What you said above just about sums up my interest in Suntup Editions. I wish I had gotten the first title Misery. After that I saw nothing that caught my eye. I did as you and ordered just to see what one of their books looks like in person. I can't afford their more expensive offerings.
