    Love the cover art. I'm sure the Artist Gifts will be lovely.

    I am such a weak a## . After swearing I wasn't going to purchase this I ended up just going with the Artist Gift Edition. I don't know who I hate more. Me for being so weak or you guys for talking up the production level of this book.

    I'm running out of ways to say "great job, Paul," but I have to say, each of the 3 editions of Horns looks like it could be the single definitive edition if SE had made just one. Each is not simply very good - each is distinctive. Those that buy more than 1 edition aren't getting 3 slightly different lookalikes; they are getting 3 very different books.

    Always looking to rent out a hidden floor above or below an old library, preferably brick or stone with hidden passageways. No pets.

    That's one of the things I immediately noticed about Suntup - the differences in their editions aren't just a slipcase versus traycase, or a number versus a letter. They're distinct editions from each other.

    Paul just announced on Twitter that the limited has now sold out. So it lasted just over 6 hours. With a $675 retail that is a shockingly quick sell out. Congratulations to Suntup on another great release!

    Thanks! That's such beautiful art that I couldn't resist. Hopefully Paul and his attorneys won't coming knocking for its use

    Congrats! You did very well for yourself at $85. I wouldn't give it a second thought.

    And the congregation said, "Amen"! And dare I say; this production just may trump Misery. Not in aftermarket value but just sheer quality.

    With that said I am thrilled to be adding this one to my collection!
    CONGRATS and welcome to the club.

    I hate me too. The AGE looks stunning.

    No kidding. You can tell that Paul loves designing these and treating each one as separate interpretations of the work. I would love to have all three. But I had to settle for two.

    I hate myself also I got an AGE, Even though it's not one of my favorites from Joe Hill.

    I am sure I will regret not buying the Artist Gift Edition but after springing for the Limited I just can't justify any additional expense.

    That is a huge statement. Lamenting not buying the lower lever product. The production value must be fantastic.

    Suntup has set the limitation for the Artist Gift Edition at 1,000.

    A little birdy just told me this. More limited than Misery but I wonder it that's all the demand there was. Glad I secured a copy nonetheless.

    Remember when I said that? I was kidding of course. But I am shocked that there will be 250 fewer copies of the AGE of HORNS than the one for MISERY. Especially with the cheaper price.

    Also, it's 80% sold out. So if anyone was sitting on the fence, now's your chance for a very reasonably priced Suntup edition with a pretty limited print run.

    A helluva nice production for $85.

    For sure. And as everyone knows, the smaller the print run, the more expensive it is to print the book. So Paul would have made more money with a bigger run (more people paying for less expensive books). For us, it's a great value. With a better aftermarket, I'd guess.
