    Question Goblin special edition from Earthling Publications

    I got an email today from Paul Miller about a special edition of Goblin - There were only 13 copies available. Did anyone here take advantage of this special?

    This is a different edition. I think it's a Halloween special offer to make up for no Earthling Halloween book this year.

    A special edition of a special edition? I think my regular special edition is fine for me.

    Am curious about the difference though. For scientific purposes of course.

    And if it is the lettered I’ll be bummed that I wasn’t offered a chance to buy one.

    I assume it is the lettered. If you go to the website there is a spot to inquire about the lettered. I also did not get the above mentioned email.

    Yeah. And I inquired way back before the numbered edition was even published. But Iím sure there are 14 more loyal customers than me.

    I also did not get an email. This does sound like the lettered edition though. I sent an email inquiring about Goblin along with a couple of other lettered editions I was put on the list for. I hope I didn't miss out...

    Keep your head up, Jeff. Maybe we'll get lucky and some of the first wave people will pass.

    I got my response from Paul at Earthling, which was SUPER fast by the way. I inquired about Motherless Child, Good Girls, and Goblin lettered editions and he stated there has been no movement on any of these titles at this time. So I'm curious as to what was offered in the email yesterday?

    I didn't get the Earthling email, either, but that's okay...I'm afraid I wasn't much of a fan of GOBLIN, and, in fact, sold my S/L HC of it shortly after I (tried to) read it.

    That said, I can't get that damn Dark Regions edition of BIRD BOX out of my head...just love that cover art, and I do feel like I didn't give it much of a chance when I tried reading it before (but gave up shortly after starting). Kind of waiting to see if Dark Regions will do a sale on it at some point soon...looks like half the print-run is still unsold.

    Anyhow, sorry for the thread drift...hope those who want the deluxe edition of GOBLIN get one.

    Dark Regions does a lot of sales so I'd be surprised if you can't get one on discount eventually.

    Did you also see the email from Paul Miller today? The sale on all the remaining in stock Halloween series books?

    I don't know...I couldn't click it fast enough when I saw the email, but now I'm weighing whether it's worth the trouble. Interesting way to buzz-kill your own sale...contrast that to Earthling's email where a quick email to him instantly secured me a copy from his sale.

    EDIT: Also: If you pledge to a Kickstarter and do so with the selection of doing so without a reward (as instructed), is your purchase insured/covered by your credit card, since there it's both a Kickstarter and you've indicated you've contributed without an expectation of a reward/merchandise? Add to that Kickstarter apparently only charges the card if the drive is successful on 11/4...if it's not, then is my Halloween Sale purchase not processed?

    I woke up inexplicably cranky this morning; this didn't help. More I think about it, will probably pass.

    I didn't look into it beyond 50% off everything available on the website. I didn't realize it was so convoluted. If OFFSPRING was part of the sale (I assumed it wasn't since it's only available on Kickstarter) I would have investigated.

    And yeah, the difference with Earthling is stark. Chris needs to make things easier for his customers.

    I still have copies of their edition of Bird Box. I could probably cut a deal if someone wanted one, otherwise I suspect they'll just end up in a grab bag at some point.
