    Me too. It should be pretty interesting to see which stories are going to be in there. I also wonder how much the table of contents has changed from the original intention to what it will actually end up being.

    Maybe I should go for this one. This definitely looks like a must-have.
    Better wait a couple of hours first....for the BIG announcement.
    I bet that's going to be another one, must-have, I mean.

    For years, I waited for CD to reveal this book's TOC before committing to purchasing it. As time went on, my curiosity grew, and I've since read several CD anthologies. All are exceptional and don't include anything less than a stellar story. Granted, not all of the stories were to my liking, but even those were written with such exquisite prose, I found myself compelled to read the beauty of the words on the page. So, I ordered this late last year fully expecting to be floored by the TOC and the pieces themselves once I have a chance to read them.

    Man, is this finally happening? I bought this so long ago (and I bought the s/l of course) that it should be called the Twentieth. :-) Can't wait, should be awesome.

    Ha, yeah the title is going to change... More news to come by the end of the year if Rich ever finalizes his TOC! The authors he's waiting on are, um, really well liked. That's all I can say.

    i figured as much, Brian, and whoever it is, it is definitely worth waiting to get them into the collection - i mean CD has such a storied past, with names like King, Straub, Ketchum, Bradbury, Clegg, Koontz, Lansdale, Matheson, Preston, FPWilson...it'd be awesome to get some of those guys into this book

    I was cleaning out the back room two weeks ago and found my printout receipt for the limited. I searched for the book for over an hour when I had to admit I didn't remember receiving this title. I thought it might have been lost in the mail. The date on the receipt is 02/07/2004. I had forgotten I'd ordered it. Glad to see this is finally happening. Do I need to make an inquiry as to the statis of my order?

    Got myself some money and am now debating whether to order this now or wait until I know who will be in it. Thinking I will just end up ordering it soon. Of course then I have to debate whether to order the trade, signed, or both lol

    lol, that is what I was thinking. I suppose I should probably order it before I get married, lol, though I'm sure I could justify it if I explained how valuable it will be.

    I rarely order the limited editions myself due to budget, but you need to at least order the trade and definitely the limited if you can afford it. No debate on whether to order the book at all though. This one will probably be another must own...
