DROOD is here!

Subterranean Press' limited edition of Dan Simmons' DROOD has arrived. Received my copies this week and wow, they look dynamite!! It's a big, fat-daddy of a book (note the spine) and the printing job is first-rate thru and thru. Last I heard, this one's still available via Subterranean. However, as of this morning, only 40-50 copies remain. Big congrats to Bill Schafer and SP for yet another major success. :)

That is a kick butt cover. I love the burning top hat!

I have no idea what drood is about but now I must find out.

John,

I just checked over on Subterranean Press' site and well sadly 500 dollars is a bit much and 80 bucks is a bit more reasonable.

Anything I can do to just get a copy of your artwork, in non dust-jacket form. Prints maybe?

I am really loving it this piece of art. I think it is my new favorite of your work.

Thanks, Ransom. I really appreciate the kind words.

Currently, Subterranean Press owns first publication rights to the image, and that means that at this time, they've got exclusive right to use the image in print. Once the book is out of print, we'll see what happens re: prints of this image. Again, many thanks....:)

I forgot to tell you at the con how much I admired that cover. I've already ordered the cheaper edition from them and hope my order made it in time. Well done!

Looks awesome John. Now if I only had the money... =)

And don't sweat about the interview every time I comment. As I said before, no rush. Don't want to give you a heart attack every time I congratulate you...

Thanks, Mark! Much appreciated. The books turned out great so yeah, I hope your order gets fulfilled....if you already got it in, then I'm guessing you should be OK since they had 40-50 copies as of yesterday morning, but I'd guess those will vanish fast.

Charles -- thanks! 'Appreciate the patience. :)
