    I ordered mine right here at CD so I don't have it yet. But 100 bucks? That's a pretty good price for a book like this, and so few copies. Not a Dracula fan at all, but how can you pass something like this up?? I only wish this was the first limited ever done.

    We should have time to get these shipped yet this week, as I think we're almost caught up on our orders that are already printed. On a side note, The Passage art prints will be shipping this week as well. I wanted to ship them last week but they couldn't get the cardboard shipping tubes to us until tomorrow.

    You should check the manifest to make sure there is not a coffin or other large storage container with the books!
    Brings new meaning to the word, deluxe oversized traycase!
    But great news!

    Most of our copies of Dracula have shipped out. Several arrived with damaged cases, so they are sending us replacement cases for them, and those will ship out as soon as the replacement cases arrive.

    Only the cases were damaged, the books are okay (protected by their cases!)... so we're just getting replacement cases and tossing the damaged ones!

    In this economy any book that commands the published price or above on eBay is a rare thing. I have seen many newly published titles sell for 60-70% off their cover price. I missed out on this publisher's first book, Killer's Diary but I bought a reasonably priced copy on eBay early on, for about $80 (retail $75). Now if you search for a copy, the only one you will find is on ABE Books for $266.

    Give it time. I think this is a title that will see an increase in price as well. Call me crazy but I think the publisher could have charged a lot more for this book.

    They certainly could have. It is a beautiful edition. I wish we had managed to snag some extras.

    I've seen the same thing, and have taken advantage of those deals many times over the last year or so. I still prefer to buy from the publisher though as that means my goes directly to them and some of those discounted titles are sold by those with lifetime memberships. Nothing wrong with them doing that, don't get me wrong, I just prefer my money going to the company. If titles are sold out or too pricey me for at cover price I won't hesitate though

    I agree, but I only buy Subterranean Press books on the secondary market as I do not want any more of my money going to that press. And I laughed my ass off when SP got it's ass handed to them when they found out that Hamlet's Father by Orson Scott Card was not the signed/limited that they had hoped for (it had been published previously under a different title). But I prefer to buy from the publisher when possible.

    Hi Dan - Hate to be a pain, but do you have any spares to replace the damaged Regal Edition cases - mine arrived Friday, and, simply put, the construction of the tray case bottom was obviously not up to the journey to Australia

    In all other respects, this is a fantastic edition, however, the quality of the case bottom has let it down, just a little.

    We're working on getting as many replacement cases as we can right now. There are a bunch that either arrived damaged at our warehouse or didn't survive the trip to their final destination. Drop Mindy a line to get on the list so we don't forget you need one. Thanks!

    That's true actually. I thought it might end up like the first The Woman limited by Ketchum, but then realized the book is rare, but not that rare (like The Woman is).
    LOL Good ol' ABE. Almost $300, eh? Is that edition signed by the Count himself?

    Really? I think it's the Bradbury limiteds I have that was published by them? They're not great looking books....some were by Gauntlet I'm sure (which are nice looking), but that Subterranean Press does not produce world class stuff.
    But why else don't you like them? The people? Just shoot me a PM if you don't want to say here...I'm just curious...
