    I had to put this one down a couple of times and walk away for a while. It's powerful, disturbing, and caught my attention from the beginning. Well worth a read.
    I think I can now claim to be the official only dude not to really care for it. Everyone else raves about it.

    I read some mixed reviews too, which is why it took me so long to order it.

    I saw this offer as well. That is pretty darn nice.

    As for Red Dragon, I passed on the limited, though I was VERY, VERY tempted. The price seemed reasonable considering Harris's signature and Suntup's quality. I just couldn't swing it with all the other purchases I've been making lately. I'm sure on my death bed my final words are going to be "Red Dragon"...

    I don't know what it is about the Artist Editions that always make me hesitate. I passed on Misery and Horns because I don't really collect King and I didn't care much for that particular Hill book. I bought Rosemary's Baby and think the quality is fantastic, but have passed on I Am Legend even though I'm a HUGE Matheson fan and haven't pulled the trigger on Red Dragon though I'd like to read the book and the price is fantastic.

    I will probably never pass on a Suntup AGE. Even if he does an edition of The Cat in the Hat (actually that would be badass--so poor example in this case). The only reason I'd pass on a numbered would be price. But price is not a factor in the AGEs. And the quality is definitely there. Misery, Horns, and Rosemary's Baby are all fantastic. RB is the best, of course, but I have high hopes for I Am Legend and Red Dragon. And they hold their value even more than the numbered editions (percentage-wise, excluding Misery). It sounds like you are fighting against all the yeses Suntup throws at you!

    I'd say that of all purchases, Suntup is the safest. Because if you don't like the book, or regret buying it, you can always sell it for more than you paid. I can't tell you how much it pissed me off waiting two years for a pre-order and then after getting the book, seeing that it hasn't sold out and people are selling it on eBay for half of what I paid. I just felt stupid as well as angry. Never felt stupid or angry with Suntup. In fact that's the company tagline I've pitched to Paul.

    Suntup. Or feel stupid and angry.

    In that case, I'd choose love. I'd buy it to support the press and maintain my number (if it was priced around the same as Brother) and have as complete a set of AGEs as possible.

    But then, after having it seated next to its siblings, I'd whisper to it every morning, "You're not worthy. You're nothing like your brothers and sisters. You'll never be worthy. Nothing you can do will change that because you are profoundly broken. I wish you were never born." And then I'd go about my day avoiding burnt Barbie dolls and women with transparent skin and children who shit gems and annoying mailmen who troll people to almost no consequence.

    hahahahahahaha

    Seriously it would break my heart. I'd feel personally betrayed. I'd run out into my backyard and scream up into the pouring rain, 'WHY PAUL?1 WHY HAVE YOU DONE THIS THING?!" Lightning would photograph the anguish on my face. Thunder would respond to my pleas.

    I'd collapse, broken and sodden.

    There in the mud, I'd finally snap. I'd collect myself, enter the house, open the laptop and order every Bentley Little book CD has or ever will have and decide that I, too, must embrace the emptiness, the yawning chasm of words that define a Bentley Little experience.

    I don't know. But her lawyers did. So did the cops. And my therapist.

    +1. Unfortunately it is unlikely. A few months ago I proposed a Suntup time travel trilogy to Paul that would consist of Time and Again, Replay by Ken Grimwood and 11/22/63 by SK and he indicated that he isn't a fan of T&A. Them's the breaks.
