    True, it's on the line at best.

    Not grumbling per se but damn, I'm with Jeff here, one should probably have a little knowledge before making a purchase of this magnitude.

    Ron you were definitely not grumbling. And I am happy that Jeff got his book and I'm happy that now I'll be getting one.
    This is a great day for book collectors.

    I'm happy for you too! I hope Paul hits the 1,000 copy mark and sells out. I'm super excited to see what the double-sided dust jacket will look like. Paul said it was the artist's idea initially and I love that level of collaboration.

    Probably. We were as suprised by it as everyone else. I think Brian was checking with Paul yesterday to see if we could get any.

    I might have to get one from you guys as well so I can display both dust jackets like some sort of conquering king.

    That's it - he should never have placed his original order if he didn't know what he was getting for his money (and by the time he asked his question, full details of both editions had been provided on Suntup's website).

    Spend your money how you like, but why be a dink about it?

    I understand; often, when I see something good or interesting happen in the world, I think "someone will find a way to complain," and it always happens.

    Not to completely derail this thread, BUT there's another guy in a Facebook group bemoaning the long wait times and missed deadlines in the small publishing world. He's accusing some unnamed presses of running Ponzi schemes. He could avoid it all by simply cancelling his orders and not buying. But I guess he wants the added excitement of complaining?

    I found out a long time ago there is no use in complaining. When you deal with the small press, delays are going to happen. Case in point, "Turn Down The Lights" is over 5 years and counting. CD has been very good in explaining the reasons for this and I always had the option of cancelling. Hopefully this year?

    I'm waiting right alongside you on that one. I never once considered cancelling. I'm sure it'll be this year. I'm hoping they'll get King to sign copies as a thank you for our patience.

    A guy can wish!

    I got Bev Vincent to sign a trade (first printing) of "Flight or Fright" and was hoping he would get his "buddy" to sign too!

    It occurs to me that being in the business Suntup is in is somewhat like having 10 wives - no matter how well you do what you do, there's always someone who wanted it different.

    "It is bad that you didn't do an AGE edition."

    "It is bad that you did an AGE edition."

    How many targets can you hit with a single arrow?

    Hi, my name is Brian. I'm addicted to Suntup (and every other thing book related). I ordered two copies yesterday

    That would be great. I almost sprang for the Lettered edition just to get Bev's buddy's signature. I settled for the second-most awesome edition. I can't wait to get that book too!

    Hahahaha, I had to reduce my dosage, but I am also an addict. I can justify getting a second copy ONLY if I use my CD spending account. So if CD gets some I'll probably get one and then stare at them on my shelf in the summer of '19 with their two different spines.
