    Suntup Press - Fourth Book

    So Paul Suntup is now shipping The Haunting of Hill House and in his year end video he announced that a teaser video would be released on January 15th. He also held something very small that was a hint to what the next book would be. So far I have seen speculation that he held up a ring (Paul has already said it is not a ring, disappointing Tolkien fans), a penny and a button.

    So Brian861 identified that last announcement right out of the gate. It is now time to begin speculating on the next title from Suntup. I have nothing yet but will keep thinking!

    Paul's video is

    Not being a collector of Tolkien, have any of his books been given the limited treatment? I'm still holding out for Rose Mary's Baby at some point. The Invasion of the Body Snatchers for another one.

    Easton Press has given their limited treatment to I think the 5 main books. I've always wanted them, but they've always been out of my budget.

    Folio Society has done Hobbit & LOTR, and HarperCollins has done deluxes (affordable) of those and several more, and super-deluxes (pricey) of two (not the two you'd expect, though).

    I'd suggest poking around here if you have an interest: https://www.tolkien.co.uk/.

    ROSEMARY’S BABY has two signed/limited editions, one from Easton Press and one from Armchair Detective. I own the Easton, and find it the much finer edition of the two.

    Easton has done a trade of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS...I have that one as well, and I think my copy may be specially signed by the frontispiece artist.

    I agree that both of these important, impactful books belong — in some form — on the shelf of every fantastical collection.

    Goes to show what I know. Makes one wonder if there's any book that hasn't had some kind of treatment over the years. The well known ones anyway.

    This is more my wife's bag than mine. I can't buy her limiteds though. She'll do something silly and read it, in the bathtub!

    There aren’t many, that’s for sure.

    Couldn't be signed by the author as he is deceased but I would love a limited of 'By Reason of Insanity' from Shane Stevens!

    Paul is a class act and has let Dark Regions Press sell both Misery and Horns so far, so whatever the next book is we'll try to reserve copies for DRP customers. Absolutely love what Suntup is doing.

    I'd love a nice limited of Watership Down. It's too bad Richard Adams has passed (that was the main driving factor for acquiring a copy of The Girl in a Swing - his signature.)

    I'm still hoping Jerad comes out with an edition of Watership Down. In the meantime, I found the edition, Watership Down by Richard Adams Penguin Books/Kestral Books (1976), Edition: First THUS Edition, Hardcover, 550 pages, years ago. It has a slipcase, the artwork is very good, I'm more than happy with this one until something better comes along.....Or maybe I'll just be satisfied this one LOL!! It really is a nice book.

    WD from CP would be a nice edition too.

    I know that there has been a few different illustrated versions released, I just don’t know enough about them to try and track them down.

    Well the teaser video was released and show scrabble pieces. My immediate thought is Joe Hill's NOS4A2 but I can't be right. There are at least two US limited editions out there and I can't see Paul returning to a well used well. I was wrong about Horns though. For the life of me I can't think of any other stories with scrabble pieces as a story element. The letters displayed do not ring any bells either.

    Discussion on TDT has Rosemary's Baby and Burnt Offerings in the running.

    At :07, all the tiles spell out IRA LEVIN. But at the end, the tiles seem to spell out the last name of the Burnt Offerings author.

    People think Paul is trying to throw them off with the obvious spelling of IRA LEVIN.

    Haven't read the book but in watching The Handmaid's Tale, she plays Scrabble with her Commander.

    Do of the three mentioned only Handmaids Tale could be signed by the author. Clearly based on Hill House that would not prevent a Suntup edition. Each of these would probably be a gift edition (if available) for me. I am not familiar enough to any of them to spring for a limited.

    You don't have to be familiar, Martin! It's Suntup!
