    I got mine last week (#39) and it seems to be a very nice production. I haven't read it yet.

    I received #32. As John said, it's a nice production, fully bound in brown cloth. I can't imagine what they did (besides King's sig) to make the deluxe worth $750. I look forward to seeing one.

    What? The S/L has not yet been released? I had no idea.

    I just bought the trade edition on eBay from Sub. Press recently.

    From a conversation I had with Bill Schafer a while ago, it sounds like the hardest part often is getting all of the signatures together for these anthology books. Single signature books aren't hard, but when there's a lot of authors involved, there's invariably one or two who really hold up the process. Plus, there's just a lot of lag time in shipping the signature plates to one after another author...

    Another example - the final hardcover signed issue of the print magazine 'Subterranean' hasn't shipped, although it's been more than a year since SubPress switched it to an online-only version.

    Regards, David

    Default Shameless plug from another thread...

    If you are tired of waiting 1.25 years for a King signature on a book, try out my Knowing Darkness: Artists Inspired by Stephen King, which is not signed by King but by 33 artists, including Michael Whelan, Bernie Wrightson, Mark Ryden, Dave McKean, and many other top people. This book was done on budget, on time, and will be shipping in mid to late November, and that very close to the original schedule.Plus the sig sheets are sewn in, not tipped, and the book itself is an awesome 14 x 20 x 6 with printed suede covers and a printed traycase and an extra 13 x 19 book of large prints -- all for $895. Deal of the century!

    Just to point out Sub Press has been doing a Cemetery Dance with all of their Lettered Editions. I finally just got Ray Bradbury's lettereds of Skeletons and Moby Dick just last week, about a year after the limiteds were released. And I am waiting on a couple of Charles de Lint lettereds that have been over a year since their limiteds were published. I guess Sub Press has been catching up, but they have been verrrrrrryyyy slow this past year with the Lettereds.

    You are correct. I paid in 2007 for my Lettered Joe Hill Locke & Key and no sign of it. I even paid for the 2nd lettered release of Locke & Key: Head Games a few months ago without even seeing the first one.

    Coincidentally, this snippet of information has just been post on the Sub Press
    website:

    We’ve been fairly quiet about this, as we wanted everything sorted out before stringing our customers along again, but our traycase supplier went out of business owing us many thousands of dollars and hundreds of cases. We placed an order with the manufacturer our friend Jim Seels at ASAP Publishing uses, as well as our other regular supplier Judi Conant, and are happy to say that the following cases have just finished shipping

    There follows a list of twelve titles, including a Charles De Lint, (though fifty-to-one is not included).
    Looks like the backlog of lettereds is starting to move.

    I emailed them on 8 February 2010 and got this short reply next day:

    Hi.
    This is one of the next 2-3 jobs our traycase manufacturer is working on.
    Best,

    They have published dozens of books since.

    Not necessarily dozens of traycased books though? They've been moving steadily (though 2-3 months behind in a lot of cases) on the limiteds, it just seems to be the lettered traycases that are holding up the line. From what I understand, anyway.
