    I just posed that question to Joe via his website - will be interesting to see his reply if/when he posts it!

    ETA: Here's a link to the thread Joe Hill Gunpowder
    Overlook obviously buys lots of other, non-Joe Hill books from PS Publishing and I'm sure gets the right to buy 10 or so copies of Gunpowder as thanks for keeping them in business with all the other books people are not willing to pay $250 for.

    The indy publisher is kept in business by the indy bookseller, so yeah, Overlook makes a high profit on this book, but they will also be buying and selling other books where the profit margin is much smaller.

    The customer service is a whole other issue...I've never bought from them...but they have a relationship with PS that helps both parties.

    I'm not doubting Overlook's right to sell the book - just curious, as others, at to what the author's take on it is, that's all.

    I look forward to Joe's response, Gretchen. Thanks for posing the question.

    I actually added to it over on Joe site. I have a feeling he might not want to reply to this one without offending Overlook. As Overlook does promote a lot of Joe's works. Who know, though.

    I just know Brian Keene was angry at Bad Moon Books for marking up his new chapbook on release. BMB was selling the book for $38 (he had 25 copies), and the release price was $15. In fact BMB started selling the book before it was even released from the publisher. In this case Brian Keene doesn't like BMB so he took offense. Whereas Joe has no problems with Overlook as far as I know, so I was curious as if he also took offense, or not?

    btw, thanks for the Joe Hill post Gretchen!

    Congrats Mike. What do the inscriptions say?
    Captain, Road Prison 36 : What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.

    Dragline : Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
    Luke : Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand

    I don't mean to take away thunder from Mike, but I also received the books from his signing, and I already have pictures. I bought all three, even though the only first was Lock & Key, because they were personalized. Heart-Shaped Box was an older signed copy from an earlier signing in May, and it just added "For Geoff". this wasn't very exciting, but I really like the 20th century Ghosts and Welcome to Lovecraft personalizations.
