    That is a beauty of a case. I've ordered two myself for both US and UK editions. I too still have my original US 1st that I purchased each month while stationed in Louisiana. No clue or care about 1st printings back then.

    Some great stories in the volume, but I always seem to come back to 'The Winter Market' as a favorite. Of the non-Sprawl stories - 'Dogfight' is a really nasty piece of work and 'The Belonging Kind' has grown on me over the years as well.
    Subpress just emailed and said some copies are still available after shipping out all preorders.

    Oddly enough, I happened to have an very early morning work meeting today - saw the email and was able to get a copy. I'd have been asleep normally - nice reward for the early morning.

    i still cant post pictures, but if you go through this thread, i only posted 1 time before. Wrote up my big long and boring story only to get upstaged by Gerald Winters 10 minutes after posting. Years later, i thought i would post here for the second time.

    As PRESIDENT of the MATT FISHER Fan Club (it says so in my header). I am privy to a few perks from Matt. Every few years he has GIFTED me something as a thank you, or to cheer me up during dark days or even just for no reason at all. Yesterday was one of those NO Reason at all. Just a really nice note for working with him and working together on growing our signed collections. 1 year he sent me a signed copy of JOYLAND Illustrated, another year it was a signed copy of Charlie the Choo Choo. He knows i am a fanatic in getting all of KIng's first edition books signed. Well he outdid himself yesterday. He knew i was looking and looking for a very special PROOF! I had him looking for years.

    He wrote me a personal and very nice note stating that he was reorganizing his bookshelves and noticed something terribly wrong. He went on to say he found that he actually had 2 US IT Proofs , He was looking for one for me for over a year! And he found it on his shelf! He just sent it in the mail as a very generous gift. I know many of you deal with him quite often and I know he tries to be fair/honest and helpful whenever possible. But i am truly lucky to find a like minded collector, who I can call a friend and a gentleman! I found a few really good friends on this site and truly appreciate Matts help in building the collection i have!

    Thank You for my AWESOME proof. Now i only need a Gunslinger S/L with a slipcase.

    My copy turned up super fast. You were right about the artwork - it's nicer in person than pictured on the website. I still don't think the cover art is hugely relevant to the work, but quite a few of the interior illustrations are cool and nicely represent the associated story. The artwork for 'The Belonging Kind', 'New Rose Hotel' and 'Hinterlands' in particular stand out.

    I wish the dust jacket was glossy instead of matte textured and it'll definitely need a cover. I find the two color printing a little distracting, but I do like the layout and design elements. Overall - I'm glad I jumped on it.

    Hmmm...this was listed as a softcover on Abebooks so I was surprised to get a hardcover in the mail. This was the only one with this style listed that way. Would I be correct to assume this look was never used for a softcover?

    Some sellers don't know what they have. Often they are buying from another seller and passing it on to you.

    That style was only available in a hardcover. Goodreads is pretty good with various editions.

    Centipede Press. Pretty cool edition.
    Just checked, sold out, will have to look secondary market. Couple already up on eBay but with ridiculous markups. I have their Clarke The City and the Stars from a couple of years ago, it's pretty nice.

    Sold out over a year ago. The initial price was pretty high to begin with. City and the Stars looks nice. Congrats.

    It is indeed.

    I was expecting a lot, after the reactions of some on here, and was still pleased.

    Thanks
