    This is probably sold out by the time you're seeing this. Also I'm trying something new and just going to ditch the "announcement" section.

    CDCC and previous customer lists. I received the email as a previous customer, but passed on the now-sold-out limited (signed by ed. and artists). There is a trade, though, and there'll be plenty of copies of those, I imagine.

    I actually think we nixed the trade idea. The printing costs would've been too high that we'd have had to price it too close to the limited to be worth it.

    We hit the CDCC and our "Recent Customers" list yesterday. Feel free to email Mindy about it though, I think there's a few copies left that we're offering manually to people who email. (to keep for overselling)

    Has that changed since yesterday? This was in the email that Brian sent to Patreon supporters yesterday:

    "We are probably going to add an unsigned trade hardcover to the plans, but that won't be published until October."

    Yep. Changed this morning. The trade hardcover idea was one we were throwing around last night at like 10 PM via text message, but after some research and discussion this morning we realized it didn't make much sense from a price point sense / how many copies of a THC we'd need to move to be able to justify printing them.

    typo under the lettered edition:
    Signed by the author and artists on a unique signature page

    unless an author is signing?

    I am one story away from completing Act One and I am compelled to comment. This is a fantastic anthology. Probably the best one I have read since 999! I am always Leery of themed anthologies but so far this is hitting all the marks. Old story from Stephen King that I have not read before. Joe Hill story that I have read several times and still enjoy reading. Strong stories from Neil Gaiman, Kelley Armstrong and others. The best story I have read so far is from an author I had not even heard of before, Tananarive Due. Her story really packs a punch! Glenn Chadbournes art really represent the stories well also and match the 'Weird Tales' feel the book has.

    This edition is a home run already and I am less than half way through!

    Thank you! I hope the rest of the book continues along this path!

    Question--was this anthology previously opened for orders? I'm shocked with how quickly it sold out. That's not a knock on the book or CD. I just think it sold exceptionally fast. I jumped on both editions myself--but that's largely because I'm a Malerman fan and the lettered edition wasn't astronomically high.

    Nope, just sold out really fast. Honestly faster than any of us were expecting.

    Well I'm thrilled it did. Congratulations are in order.

    I gotta say that a LOT of books have been selling out very quickly lately.
    PS's Dead Zone
    Centipede's Peter Watts set
    Suntup's Red Dragon and Wells books (I didn't think the Wells books would sell out as quickly as they did).
    and of course Midnight Under the Big Top.

    And I think the only reasonable explanation is my YouTube channel. I've single-handedly stirred all the interest in these small presses. Me. No other reason.

    Personally, I think it's your humble soft spoken nature that's doing it.
