    Smile Interesting find

    I found a Cemetery Dance Publications book still in shrinkwrap and did purchase the book. It was a bargain and I am really enjoying a book by the same author I'm currently reading. I looked closer and found an older Cemetery Dance anthology also still in shrinkwrap so I'm tempted to buy the anthology too.

    The only time I have seen CD shrinkwrap a book was Blockade Billy, to keep the card in. Do these appear to have been shipped wrapped by CD or done later?

    I don't know how I could tell Martin. You say you have only seen one CD book shrinkwrapped so I am guessing the shrinkwrap job was done later. This seems like a good question for Brian or Dan. ~Cap

    I would be leery of the shrinkwrap being adhered to the dustjacket.

    How funny that you should mention that Martin. I had almost the same thought when looking at the book I wound up purchasing. ~Cap

    What were the titles? I can only think of a handful of titles that have been shrink wrapped, 1st printing of Blockade Billy, Slipcased copies of The Dark Man, and all of the SK Gift Editions we released after IT I think. It's possible there was some early trade hardcovers that might have been shrink wrapped (from before I worked here), but if they're limited editions I can't imagine they would have been as our numbered limited editions are hand numbered here after the books have been printed, and we don't have the ability to shrink wrap books.
