    Well I got lucky and got one from abebooks for $50 including shipping. Unfortunately the yellow band tears easily (it looked like most for sale with the band had tears), and mine tore in transit. Recently the ones I have seen for sale have been w/o the band. To me, the band, torn or not, increases the value.

    John, not sure how many were made but I think I saw that 200 were made available for the Australian market. I've been looking for a Shift arc but no luck so far. I think Shift will have much less printed due to the popularity of Wool so far.

    I don't want to pay that much - but I can get these all individually signed at the event on the 19th - is $200 an okay price? Or still too much?

    Thanks

    One eBay listing stated that there were 1000 ARCs produced but I do not know if that figure is true.

    This sounds so good but I'm just not going to be able to collect another author. I will probably just have to pick up a trade PB. Thanks again for bringing this author up.

    ok - so I have 5 HC on order (you know who you are) - the store actually has nothing on hand right now for the event - so I reserved 5 copies. The person I spoke with said they should be getting the stock in before the signing (I can only hope) - so I guess this is still pretty low on the radar. Not sure how many HC they were planning on getting for the event either - so these could be first or second printings - will find out that day.

    Just got my s/l from Goldsboro in the mail yesterday.

    I had emailed the people at Goldsboro (I think I spoke with Pavla) - they (not sure male or female) got back fairly quickly and were happy to hold my number for shift

    Make sure to sign up for the newsletter - since that is how they'll announce the sale of the final s/l book. But I'm sure someone here will remind us, plus the shift book obviously is taking longer to sell than wool - so I figure it will take awhile longer to sell the last one.

    I think it's taking longer to sell as the first s/l was part of their book of the month club, which would mean they had less to sell to the general public.

    Its funny - I guess B&N was not happy with his book deal - and actually many (most) will not have them in stores for the release tomorrow. I called my local B&N and they had none, nor any planned to have on hand tomorrow. I mentioned he would be in town next week for a book signing and the store manager went and ordered several for the store - should arrive in 2-3 days (one reserved for me). I will check it out and see how much they actually ordered and if they are the first printing (my guess is yes since they were already in the warehouse). On his blog - everyone had the same response that their B&N did not have them but could order and ship to home...

    Just read his blog post and it is disappointing that BN decided not to stock the book.

    I think the best bet would be to get one from Goldsboro in UK. Those were printed by century (same book as the s/l) - they still have HC (signed). Those should all be 1/1. I won't know about the simon schuster books until I get one in hand (should be at my B&N in 2 days).

    Today's Goldsboro newsletter suggests that they are close to selling out the signed limited slipcased version of Shift.

    sweet - just called the Berkely bookstore today - they had ten 1st/1st HC (they DO NOT say second printing in them) - now they have 5 since they set aside 5 for me. They are ordering more in for the day of the event (plus those that I had special ordered) - but no idea if those would be first printings - but does not matter now.
