    As a non-owner (worse luck!) of a Dragon rebound edition, I vote to keep the number at 26. Although that means I may never own one, some things should remain special through their unattainability. Just my 2c.

    (And this is the coolest case of life imitating art - or art imitating fake art? - that I've ever seen. Standing ovation, Mr. Suntup, for not just being a good sport, but for turning lemons into lemonade)

    Iíll start by saying - Iím a non-owner of the rebounds.

    Now - I LOVE how this April fools prank has sparked the next Rebound endeavour. It was a hell of a good-looking edition of one of Kingís top tier books, and to see it realised is cool. When life gives you April Fools lemons, what does Suntup do? Makes goddamn lemonade..

    As a non-owner, I think RF has the compromise model which would work. A Lettered 26 to match the existing ownerís sets, and a limited numbered edition...

    EDIT - I think the limited number edition should be significantly different than the lettered... a "lesser" version, if you like, as how the publishers usually do it. (Of course, this may be utterly not workable, but just throwing an idea).

    Actually, upon reflection, 26 lettered editions, and (I'll take Paul at his word), 26 editions with no limitation noted. The 26 "Stark" editions would almost have to be sold by lottery (Excluding entries from Argentina). Of course every lettered owner would also demand that they receive a non-designated edition, thus back to square one.
    BTW, these are just my own thoughts and suggestions.

    <-------------Starting to feel sorry for Paul having to make tough decisions.

    Back to square one. Just make two. One for stroppy, and one for me. Stroppy and I can Rochambeau over who gets the Stark, and who gets the Beaumont.
    That way everyone will be equally displeased.

    I would vote for only 26 copies, because I totally missed out on the IT rebound due to negligence on my part, and because I really can't afford any more of these special editions at this time. I'm on a limited income and my credit card is, well, up there. So if I had zero chance of getting a copy I could at least justify not spending the money. If this makes any sense, please let me know.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    You know, this actually isn't a bad idea. Not to mention a great use of Rochambeau.

    I would suggest just sticking with the 26 copies as well. A lottery for only 26 additional copies would just get ugly. Everyone had a fair chance of getting in on Dragon Rebound, so thatís how it should stay.

    so before I add my 2c, I just need to get this out of the way...



    Ok, I feel better now.

    A part of me doesn't care how many get made, I'm just stoked it's happening. However as a Dragon Rebound lettered owner, if an additional 26 were created for The Dark Half my only concern would be "What happens for the next Rebound book?"
    If 52 are made for this one, then the pressure would be on to make 52 of the next book and all other books going forward. Then there will be 52 collectors who are wanting to match their number and still there will be many many more who still cannot buy the book. Demand will always outstrip supply on these books. Regardless, whatever Paul's decision is, will be fine by me.

    Oh what the hell one more...
    Spoiler:


    (is it obvious I'm quite happy about this? )
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Original ideal can still be achieved with two signed bookís, Paul would have to purchased two flat signed 1st/1st to rebound. I have all the lettered edition and wouldnít like to see this expand.

    Good point. I suppose Paul should keep the "brand" strong and only ever do 26 lettered copies of Dragon Rebound, or a Suntup publishing book.

    Perhaps Paul should cancel the 185 (+15) signed numbered, and the several hundred (unsigned) deluxe Misery books that aren't lettered. That way the brand is strong. Are you in favor of that?

    Kris, you're great at telling others what to think and do.

    Have you ever considered the idea that in order for Paul to do these great things he needs to make a living (profit), and that only doing 26 of any given project is not sustainable?

    I consider myself extremely lucky to be a Dragon Rebound member and whatever Paul decides is fine by me.

    Paul, would it be possible to split the page block and make it a two volume set for each one? So the stark and Beaumont make up each individual letter? That would be cool

    I vote for only 26, but if more are made, I think they should just be designated ĎRCí copies and not have their own numbering scheme. Just my opinion, though, and we all know what opinions are like...
    Looking for:
    1) CD Carrie S/L & matching art portfolio #58
    2) US Viking Eyes of the Dragon proof
    3) first edition Night Shift without dust jacket

    Much as I like that idea, it would double the production cost of each book. As these are rebounds, I think there is a ceiling on what is viable for people to pay.

    Kris, you can self edit (delete the contents) of your posts, but once they are quoted by someone else, it's pointless. Leaving a bunch of posts with a "." is no way to contribute to a healthy vigorous discussion.
