    Week 2 has (practically) come and gone. Anyone received their lettered Tommyknockers?
    And not a word about shipping these editions (or not) in today's newsletter.

    Funny how this never happens with the daily e-mail subscriptions you never get around to canceling, but something actually important is stopped cold.
    So true. Spam, spam, spam finds a way.
    Alright, we'll call it a draw.

    I guess I can add International Banker to my resume for having to lend PS Publishing part of the money to publish its latest lettered book titled The Stand. The total cost for US bankers will approach $5K (3,600 GBP x 1.29747 x 1.035 = 4,834). The 3.5% is the currency exchange fee in case you were wondering. Is there any other lettered book written by King that commanded a price that high on issuance? But what upsets me the most is that, again, collectors are being asked to foot the initial publishing costs -- at least half. Why? I could understand a reasonable non-refundable deposit to ensure demand is tangible but why tie my funds up for at least a year with nothing to show for it? And NO guarantee that the book(s) will be delivered/available, as advertised. I know I'm wasting my time even writing this note but it wreaks of CD past practices and it bothers me the captive audience always gets it in the butt. In the end, I'll cough up the money. My only internal question will be do I pay the entire amount now betting that the GBP will get stronger over the next 12-14 months or should I just wait hoping that the GBP will fall. End of frustration rant. BTW, anyone see my lettered The Tommyknockers?

    The answer to such “why” questions is usually “because they can.”
    Grasping for memories, searching for landmarks in fields once familiar

    He can’t recognise now, the hedgerows are gone, the blackbirds have flown, silencing song

    This wasteland belongs to a murder of crows

    It's just the way of things will small presses. If you're buying from them you're both a domestic and international banker. CD, SubPress, Suntup, Dark Regions, etc. all operate with upfront funds for delivery of product with a several-month to years (looking at you, CD) lead time. Centipede Press is an anomaly. I make peace by thinking of this form of publishing as art/craft rather than commodity. I don't resent the lead time: they are small-business craftsmen who depend on upfront capital to fund creative projects. Without our "loans" these creations wouldn't come into existence. Yes, there's risk our "loans" will default. Our judgment on who to trust to deliver certainly matters. C'est la vie.
    Alright, we'll call it a draw.
