    ya she just couldnt understand that after such a long wait i was able to cut it loose so easy.but it seems to be that CD just cant find a "reliable " or "efficient" binder company.maybe the length of time that they're holding our money is the same time it takes them to pay for their their binder suppliers for the slipcases etc. Are the binder people getting pissed off with CD too i wonder?

    Some of you guys have the patience of Christ! 10 years! Man, I waited a year for Secretary and that pissed me off. Thats total bullshit, Im sorry. I will never pre-order for them again, unless I know for sure it will be quick( like the new Brian Keene).

    I've ordered my copies of Secretary of Dreams 2 when I first got the emails, mainly to ensure that I got a matching number for my signed numbered edition. I did this keeping in mind that it would be at least a year before I saw the books. As long as you keep in mind that speed in production is NOT one of their priorities, you should be okay.

    Your right, and I dont want to have a CD bash here but, letting someone wait 4-10 years for something they paid for is just unethical. If they were plauged with so many problems they should have sent refunds and put those people on the top of a waiting list till they had a more definitive time line of when they would be published.

    I was OK with the wait for several years. About once a year I would e-mail Mindy and ask the status of the books I had on order. She would reply promptly (usually) and explain the delays as much as she could. I didn't like it but at least there was some dialogue and I felt the books would eventually come. Then, a couple of years ago, she stopped responding to my yearly status request. I can't begin to tell you how angry that made me. 10 years of frustration boiled up and I cancelled all my outstanding orders. Now Cemetery Dance is mad at me!!! Go figure.

    They are mad because they had to "give" your money back to you.

    In one way we all should be grateful that CD exists, but in another, we all know that they fall far short of promises, and compelling excuses aside (You can only use the "My dog died. my mom has cancer, I have cancer", reason a few times before people who have paid/subscribed begin to reasonably question the "excuses".
    I wish I could produce a list-I never saved all the excuses, of their reasons for delay.
    I am sure though, that viewed in toto the cummulative would be repetitive and laughable.

    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.

    i usually don't worry that much, i figure the books will get published at some time in the future, but... i don't even see any info on the CD site anymore about this book... am i just missing the order or info page for it?

    it better not be canceled, since i've already paid for a lettered edition.

    I don't know anything about the book, but isn't this the same book being discussed here:
    Cemetary Dance - 15 Year Celebration?


    If so, we'll merge the two threads.

    ha ha.... yeah... that thread got side tracked....so...

    combine away....
    still would like to know why it isn't listed on the CD site anymore.
    guess i'll email mindy tomorrow and find out.

    i forget... but i'm pretty sure the letered was 750.00 or more... and i DON'T get lettereds with my lifetime membership, so i paid for it in addition to the reg. limited that is supposed to come with my lifetime membership.
    i'm thinking i'm just not finding the link on the CD site... i'm pretty sure they wouldn't just cancel it, not tell anyone, and keep the money.
    i'll try to get some update info. from mindy tomorrow.

    first.... i need new glasses.
    there are links on the CD website... i just couldn't seem to find them.

    second...i'm a freaking moron... Cemetery Dance: A Fifteen Year Celebration isn't even the lettered edition i ordered (though I should have a #'d limited ordered via my lifetime membership).

    nope... the lettered edition i ordered a few years ago was a different book....

    The Century's Best Horror Fiction

    Pub. Date: 2008
    edited by John Pelan

    In celebration of the new millennium, Cemetery Dance Publications has commissioned a spectacular two-volume anthology project under the editorship of noted author and historian of the horror genre, John Pelan.
    John will be selecting one story published during each year of the 20th Century (1901-2000) as the most notable story of that year all 100 stories will then be collected in The Century's Best Horror Fiction.
    The ground rules are simple: Only one selection per author. Only one selection per year.
    Two huge volumes, one hundred authors, one hundred classic stories, over 700,000 words of fiction -- history in the making!


    which has King's story "The Reach" in it.



    note that both books have a publication date of this year...

    The Century's Best Horror Fiction
    Production Status:
    Proofreading continues, but with over 700,000 words (and 1600 or so pages), it's going to be a while longer until this one is ready for the printer. Many of the stories had to be typeset from original materials so they now have to be cross-checked against those originals. It's a slow process, but it'll be worth the effort. These two volumes are going to each be among the largest books we've ever published.

    looks like this is coming along? maybe...fingers crossed...

    Cemetery Dance: A Fifteen Year Celebration

    Production Status:
    The editor is currently working on the table of contents, which we will announce as soon as all of the final decisions have been made and all of the authors have signed their contracts. Once the manuscript is completed, we will rush the book into production.


    not sure if the production status is outdated or not, if this is the status....not sure if it'll meet the listed 2008 Pub.date

    Question for collectors :
    If you guys do order a limited/lettered edition (especially with lettered editions)
    Do you guys actually read the book, or even have a look inside?

    Same for me. Occasionally I see artwork posted on these sites or comments about the content of a book (sometimes it is different from the trade edition) where I had NO IDEA that stuff even existed, and I OWN the damn thing. How embarrassing is that?

    OK, that's what i thought.. sometimes you buy lettered or limited copies, where there is bonuses, artwork, and sometimes you dont even have a look at it :p

    The only real S/L book I can remember reading was THE EYES OF THE DRAGON in 1984. The trade edition wasn't published until 2 or 3 years later. That was the only way to read the book and I did so VERY carefully.

    I do look through new S/L's to look at the artwork but don't really spend much time doing so.

    I look through them carefully, mainly to see the artwork, but I don't actually read them. I don't handle them very often.

    i never read my limiteds,proofs. gift editions, or even signed books.
    i always buy two first edition hardbacks... one kept pristine/unopened... and one to read (though even that one i read with great care).
    the limiteds i do peek in at the pictures and carefully look through to verify there are no defects- making sure not to open far enough to break the spine.
