    It'd be nice to have limited editions of Ghost Story and Shadowland, but not at a $400 price tag. I'll probably end up passing if that ends up being the price.

    Jerad can make a helluva book for $400! That said, he would definitely be pricing some people out of the market at that point. It also seems high for a limitation of 500, which is the biggest he does. Will be curious to see where this goes - I think Ghost Story is long overdue for a nice edition!

    Julia was $300 If I recall correctly, and that was a very nice edition indeed. A $400 Ghost Story would be incredible. Definitely on my list.

    Per an e-mail this morning, Borderlands Press' numbered edition of the Straub short fiction collection, previously scheduled for a 10/31/20 release, has been postponed to 11/30/20 due to Straub's recovery from surgery.

    Per an e-mail today, Borderlands Press' numbered and lettered editions of the Straub short fiction collection, previously scheduled for a 11/30/20 release (and 10/31/20 before that), has been postponed to 3/31/21 "due to very serious illness to the author."

    Per this:

    ...Straub had "open-heart surgery in mid-August" and only left the hospital last Friday. Sounds like he's on the mend, which is great.

    He posted on Facebook a couple of weeks ago and seemed to be recovering slowly but well. I hope it continues.

    I don't believe I received an e-mail to this effect, but Borderlands Press' website shows that The Complete Short Fiction of Peter Straub has been delayed again; the numbered edition until June 1, the lettered edition until July 6.

    Borderlands Press sent an e-mail yesterday updating several publications, one of which being the Straub set. The delay wasn't mentioned, but this was:

    We are VERY happy to announce Mr. Straub is recovering nicely from his surgeries and has completed signing all the sheets for his books. We will be sending everything to the printer this week.

    Question for any deep Straub fans out there: does any of Straub's Blue Rose-associated short fiction tie closely enough to the BR trilogy that I should be sure to read the trilogy first? (I haven't even started it).

    My old notes tell my future self not to read the collection Magic Terror: Seven Tales until after reading the BR trilogy, and because I assume Borderlands Press' upcoming Complete Short Fiction of Peter Straub collection must include the contents of Magic Terror (named, as it is, Complete), it occurred to me that (given the June 1 publication date of BP's collection) I should probably read the trilogy so that I can read the collection without spoiling something for myself - unless the connections aren't of a spoiling nature.

    Thoughts?

    These are the short stories connected to the Blue Rose series:
    • Blue Rose
    • The Juniper tree
    • Bunny is Good Bread (aka Fee)
    • The Ghost Village.

    There's a Subterranean Press collection that has these four stories, called Juniper Tree and Other Blue Rose Stories

    They'll make a lot more sense if you read them after. "Bunny" particularly spoils things.

    In the kind of meta-fictional twist that Straub enjoys, I think at least one of the stories was “written” by Tim Underhill.

    I just received my Borderlands Press Straub short fiction set (I got the numbered) and from what I see, I'm very happy:

    - 2 volumes (volume 1 is short stories, 2 is novellas)
    - total page count >1,000
    - I'm not sure what to call the binding (which is black), it's similar to buckram (which is like a plastic-coated cloth (I'm describing buckram poorly; I make it sound tacky and horrific, which it definitely is not))
    - foil-stamped spine: volume 1 is red, 2 is blue
    - end papers are metallic gray with a swirly pattern: volume 1 is light (silvery), volume 2 is darker
    - Straub signed both (I'm not sure, when signing a set, if it's customary to sign all volumes or just the first)

    They still have sets available, all of which are signed.

    Numbered ($120): https://www.borderlandspress.com/sho...mited-edition/

    Lettered ($500): https://www.borderlandspress.com/sho...tered-edition/

    Also:
    You can get 10% discounts on these and other things (maybe everything) at BP by arranging to pay by check or money order (I did so).

    [My standard disclaimer when I appear to go too far in gushing about something: I have no connection to Straub or Borderlands, but I want to push this because I feel Straub is a bit undervalued in the world of literature (horror and generally) - and I really like this set.]

    Good to hear you're happy with it! It sounds fantastic. I ordered mine through CD, so hopefully it won't be too much longer.

    I think signing both volumes of a two-volume set is pretty unusual. A nice bonus. And I agree about Straub being undervalued. I don't understand it, honestly. He's a terrific writer.

    The lettered edition's publication date has been pushed back to Oct 21 2021 (not sure why; there's fewer of these (obviously), so I wouldn't think this hinges on Straub's signatures).

    If any of you have ordered the lettered - perhaps Hunchback Jack, since you asked about the shipping? - please post pics!
