    I believe when they did this with The Fireman, the limitation was 250. Maybe some folks complained that they wouldn't be able to match their number with a lower limitation.

    I too ordered the Sub Press edition.

    Well I pulled the trigger. Compared to what I paid for NOS4A2 and the SubPress slipcase, this wasn’t all that much more expensive. At least that’s what I’m telling myself.

    Congrats -- knowing Sub Press, I'm sure it'll be a beautiful edition.

    I'm with you TacomaDiver. I picked up a copy yesterday even though the price-point had me a little apprehensive. Much like yourself, I also used their production values on NOS4A2 to talk myself into it. Hill's SubPress releases also seem to maintain/increase in price on the secondary market which is a nice bonus. Overall, I think I will be happy to have purchased this book.

    I have no clue on their quality but they have some interesting offerings at reasonable prices.

    Was looking back for something else and just noticed this question. This will be my fourth time seeing Mr. Hill. He came through Portland promoting Horns, NOS4A2 and The Fireman. Currently my wife plans to join me and my niece is trying to see if she can get the day off.

    I am confident that you will have a blast. What I was actually looking for was a post I did about a t-shirt that had "I would rather be reading Joe Hill". The reason I was looking for the post was t NOT recommend the seller. I ordered one and received it. Looked good. I washed the shirt to be ready for next week. With one wash in cold water and hanging the shirt to dry the lettering is already coming off the shirt.

    Good to know! I was thinking of looking up that post to order one. Sounds like I'll take a pass now.

    So the Full Throttle tour starts tonight. Turns out both my wife and niece are not able to make it so I am going solo. I will probably make a few comments about the appearance but will not be posting anything that gives away any unknown portions of Mr. Hills appearance until he has completed the tour. I am certain he will have some tricks up his sleeve and I will make sure not to spoil the fun for those who are going to see him. I have been reading the stories one by one from the ARC over the last month and a half. I have finished all but one, I was trying to pace myself to finish right before release but things came up this weekend and I did not get to finish. I will start over with the audio book tomorrow. Needless to say, I am excited for tonight!
