    Still $1,525 with under a half hour to go.. I still think that an impressive showing.
    On another note, when I have time, have I got something cool to show you guys.
    Paul, it's fantastic. Pics to come probably this weekend. And I can't wait for the March updates and release of the name of the next book.
    And I will add I agree with what Paul said about going to a site and still having
    items for sale. I have been to many other sites where everything is sold out and
    I am upset because of that. Now, if someone stumbles on to Paul's site they can see
    that there are a few things that they can get. Be they a S\L or AE. I just think all of
    Paul's books are great.

    $1600. Impressive but as I suspected... no way this got to $2K.

    Wow, someone came in with literally 2 sec left and bid $1,600 and that was the final bid. So that's was the winning bid. I know it's part of
    eBay life but dayum, to lose out by that margin.

    Crazy! That just shows the other bidder went probably way beyond the point they were willing to go initially and just cried uncle.

    That’s how I won my numbered Misery; finger on the trigger, sweating bullets, almost fumbling on the iPad’s keyboard with less than ten seconds to go. I beat the next guy by $50, but that was just eBay doing its “minimum bid increase” thing. My actual bid was $600 higher than what I ended up paying.

    Thus we now know true value... Around $1500 per copy with rights. As was stated... only 2 bidders past the $1000 mark. Once that person secures his copy.. we drop to about a $1000 which is what I feel this will hold at EVEN AFTER RIGHTS are gone with next book.

    I wonder what the S\L Misery on there now will go for. It's starting price is beyond me anyway. I am just curious. No bids starting at $5,000 with 8 days left.

    UNLESS Paul does something INSANE like publishing another Harris book. If Paul does SOTL or Hannibal or Hannibal Rising, people will come out of the woodwork looking to chase down RD. And that's a double dose of Jeffingoff's Daily Wild Speculation.

    A few sales may provide a better idea

    There's at least one other person out there who would gladly pay $1,525 judging by this sale today.

    agreed. Then the rest would be around the $1000 mark. I would be confident myself in calling this a $1000 S/L.

It isn't about the price but fact that the story didn't resonate with me and thus the book, in any edition or form, has no place in my library. I don't think Ania Ahlborn is a bad author and we know Paul is a great book crafter but her stories just don't work for me.

    Yeah that makes absolute sense. The whole thing has to work for you or it's not worth it. And I'm sure there are plenty of people for whom Brother is the wrong decision. Sooner or later, the rest of the people for whom it is the right decision will finish off the last remaining copies.

    I so agree with you Kris. The PS lettereds are so poor in contrast. It's just a money grab.

    Agreed. The first few copies might go higher, But after the initial FOMO dies down, and more copies appear on the market, $1000 sounds about right.

    Agreed. I really wanted to get Brother and, quite frankly, your video almost closed the deal but in the end I just don't dig the story. It would be like buying a beautiful painting that doesn't resonate with me because of the frame.

    I like your metaphor. That's a great way to put it. And again, it's why Suntup is my jam. For me it's the whole package. These are books I love reading even if I don't know it before I buy them.

    I wii keep this brief as it is the Suntup thread.
    Kris, I am confused, you are selling a full set (minus Carrie) of the PS Publishing lettered books. They are priced at $21,500. You are then purchasing a full lettered set. So obviously you are not averse to this set of books.
    Further to this, neither is King it appears.

    No I am not... as I am a completest of all of Kings signed books but you must agree Alec... There could be so much more done with the PS lettereds as they are very close in price to the Misery lettered in price. I fear a two book set is a money grab. I sincerely do... Imagine the book they could do for $4750US! I guess we shall see...

    That seems fine to me. I like some appreciation in the books, but I mainly just love to have them on my shelf. That said, it's not too bad being able to possibly double your purchase price should you go to sell it.

    Will not argue with the fact of being a completist and a successful one at that.
    On the issue of the two book set I agree people might be divided. However to remain as a matching set (one book for each novel) I believe that PS Publishing would have had to produce a text block of nearly 950 millimetres wide. Some of their books do come up large, Skeleton Crew for instance and the expected Tommyknockers. Thereby I believe the idea of splitting the book makes sense, a text block of that width is going to drop alarmingly.
    Let us not lose sight of the fact that without PS we may never have seen this book published as a signed lettered.
