    Awesome - thank you for sharing! And thanks for taking the prints out and taking pictures of them as well

    A sealed copy of the unsigned version of Stigmata is being sold here for less than the publication price, if anyone’s interested.

    I’m looking for a hardcover copy of Cornell’s Woolrich’s Speak to Me of Death. All that is being sold online at the moment are paperbacks. Can anyone help me out?

    Theodore Sturgeon

    8.a Quarterbound leather and cloth, traycased, signed by Steve Rasnic Tem and Harry O. Morris: 20/22 – $225 (Red roman numerals)
    8.b Clothbound with dustjacket, signed by Steve Rasnic Tem and Harry O. Morris: 300 – $50
    8.c Trade paperback: 3000 – $12

    Published as Millipede Press; 2006
    Original price: $225/$50/$12

    Hey! It’s been awhile!

    I should probably face the facts – unless otherwise motivated, or I retire early (I’m not yet 40 now so if you see me mentioning retirement in one of these posts anytime soon I should probably buy you a beer because I must be doing alright), I’m probably not going to update this nearly as much as I thought I would. Given Jerad’s current output, I’m not even going to pace more entries per year than titles he produces… However, the early output from Centipede Press is much more difficult (but fun!) to catalogue. We’re at 2006 currently, and around 2010 things are going to get much, much easier. By 2013 it’ll be a lot of pictures and much more about my thoughts about the particular book at hand and less about describing different states of it.

    But for now – onward and upward!

    WORDS ABOUT THE MILLIPEDE PRESS IMPRINT

    This is the first book under the imprint Millipede Press. The rest of the 2006 releases were put out under this imprint.



    Some of Your Blood was the first title from this imprint, which was featured on and off until about 2010. For all of these books (that I’m aware of), there were deluxe, numbered, and trade paperback editions.

    The deluxe versions are quarterbound with black leather, and generally have red cloth front and back boards. I know of at least one with black leather boards, but I’m not sure if there are other colors (I haven’t seen them all), or if there are other materials (see: “I haven’t seen them all”), so I’ll take them one-by-one. They are traycased in black cloth cases with foil-stamped spines, and, something that I think is cool: the interiors of the traycases have the art that’s on the dustjackets (since it’s not on the books themselves). The numbered books are either clothbound or faux-leather bound or very slightly possibly real-leather bound (later note on this), with dustjackets done in the same style.

    Generally, the endpapers are plain for the numbered version, and the deluxe version has the textured black swirly paper that first showed up in Two-Handed Engine and which I promised was going to make many future appearances.

    The composition of the numbered editions changes, though, and there are often multiple states based on differences in the spine, binding materials, stamping, ribbons, etc.

    On to this particular title!


    As has happened previously, there is some disagreement about the exact number of copies. The limitation page says 20 deluxe copies, but there are some early newsletters that say 22. However, there’s also a caveat at the end of the limitation page that says “All other copies are reserved for the press.” This may mean that there are more than 20 deluxe copies but that some of them (2 perhaps…) were not publicly available when printed. There is an upcoming book for which this occurred but I haven’t confirmed it in this particular case.


    Top view: deluxe, numbered, paperback



    Spines and side of traycase: deluxe, numbered, paperback



    The spine of the actual deluxe edition is black leather and is blindstamped with the title, a small decoration, and the last name of the author. This particular configuration of spine is going to come back multiple times in the future, on both lettered and numbered editions. Blindstamping on this material was an interesting choice – I like it – and makes it hard to read unless at an angle.



    Here’s a shot of the front boards. The deluxe is on the left – quarter black leather and red cloth. The numbered is on the right – faux-leather (I believe) for the spine, and the same material in red for the front board. It’s often referred to as “leather bound” in auctions and online but I don’t think it is actual leather. I’m not positive though – I could be wrong!



    Inside of the traycase for the deluxe:



    Endpapers for the deluxe. Textured, black, and swirly. You’ll be seeing plenty of these babies in the future but I think it’s a nice default choice!



    Limitation page for the numbered. Note the hand-written black number, which is very unusual and soon phased-out completely.



    Limitation page for the lettered, again with the hand-lettering, this time a Roman Numeral in red.



    Title page (all editions). Nice author pic here!



    Interior page (all editions). The limitation page notes that this is the “Fleischmann” font and a random website says this: “ The robust typeface consists of text and display cuts making the font incredibly flexible for editorial design. The font features attention-getting ornate serifs and a large selection of ligatures that gives it’s characteristic form.” Sure!



    Up next - the next title from the Millipede Press imprint:

    That is a nice book. Or, I should say, those are nice books.

    I was in the same room with Sturgeon once, at a convention. He gave a talk in so low a voice I couldn't hear a word he said, and when I tried to get him to autograph the convention booklet with KILLDOZER featured on it I couldn't even get near him, he was hustled out so fast. Shortly after that, he was gone. Seeing that SOME OF YOUR BLOOD brought that memory back.
    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...

    Just FYI Jerad's got up a signed copy of Stigmata on the scratch and dent page right now: http://www.centipedepress.com/scratchanddents.html.

    It's version 1.b.ii - the "standard" numbered copy, 1 of 300 with five signatures.

    What he's asking is a nice price ($175).

    If you could check and see if your sigs are different from the ones I posted, that would be much appreciated!
    sorry for late reply - but my stigmata sig page is the same as posted - notes its one of 20 deluxe copies - with all 10 signatures...same colored ink as well
