    They aren't screwed. They made a decision knowing the repercussions. Perhaps they should have sold EOTD and Firestarter and kept IT. Life is full of difficult decisions...

    I definitely prefer the method where the proven owner gets rights as opposed to the purchaser. I think it favors collectors over re-sellers, and as a collector, I like that.

    For example, as a regular buyer of both Cemetery Dance and Sub Press books, I have always found it easier to coordinate matching copies of Sub Press titles. Miss a title? Cruise eBay and nab it, and the rights to the rest of the series are assured. I have exchanged many emails with Mindy at CD trying to request matching copies for books in a series and I don't think that either of us likes it very much. And it's usually not fruitful. It also makes me hesitate to buy CD books secondhand (at least ones that are part of a series), because then I'm beholden to that seller if I want future titles.

    I do agree that with a publisher that essentially prints one run of very limited books, it puts you in a tight spot when an expensive book comes out. But I'm also too jealous of people with Dragon Rebound books to feel very sorry for them

    I would also imagine that prototype or PC (or in this case RC) copies probably don't follow those rules, but I've never asked a publisher to match a PC copy for a series so I don't know...
    Looking for the following Centipede Press books:
    • Any book with limitation number #52
    • Chimera 1 & 2 (any #)
    • Don Brautigam Portfolio with Brautigam & Koontz signatures (any #)
    • Deluxe (Roman Numeral) editions
    • ARC/Proofs

    Yes, that's right. Although they aren't being 'screwed' out of anything. Makes me think of something my father used to say:

    No tickey, no laundry.

    Spoiler:


    "tickey/ticky/tickie/tiki/tikki/tikkie = ticky or tickey was an old pre-decimal British silver threepenny piece (3d, equating loosely to 1p). The tickey slang was in use in 1950s UK (in Birmingham for example, thanks M Bramich), although the slang is more popular in South Africa, from which the British usage seems derived. In South Africa the various spellings refer to a SA threepenny piece, and now the equivalent SA post-decimalisation 2 cents coin. South African tickey and variations - also meaning 'small' - are first recorded in the 19th century from uncertain roots (according to Partridge and Cassells) - take your pick: African distorted interpretation of 'ticket' or 'threepenny'; from Romany tikeno and tikno (meaning small); from Dutch stukje (meaning a little bit); from Hindustani taka (a stamped silver coin); and/or from early Portuguese 'pataca' and French 'patac'..."

    In a case where a reseller received a publication from me, let's say the portfolio, they would receive the same numbers next time, and then it's up to them to sort it out with their customers.

    Haven't really thought about it.

    I agree. And the few people who have sold copies have not had any issues with transferring rights. Both buyer and seller have been delighted.

    The runs are just too small for everyone to get what they want how they want it; that DR/SE attempts to be as fair and transparent about it as possible (including conversations here) will have to be enough, because it's all there is.

    Curse your luck, but nothing else.
