I totally agree with you Florida. I've always found true to life writing scarier and more disturbing than horror fiction...at least in most cases.

A special thanks to Paul for reminding us that "Thumbprint" will be out in BEST NEW HORROR soon. I hope a lot of folks read it. I'd love to hear what others think.

Hey guys, check you're inboxes, because Subterranean finally started taking orders for the ultra-limited edition of Thumbprint. As far as I can tell, it's being offered exclusively to their email subscribers.

Here's the email I got:
***************
Joe Hill -- THUMBPRINT Lettered Edition in Stock and Shipping

Apologies for the second email today, but we wanted to separate this item out from our regular news. We've had a lot of folks clamoring for us to put this title up for sale.

Joe Hill's Thumbprint is not only a killer tale about the horrors from Iraq one young solider brings home with her, it's also possibly the nicest lettered chapbook we've ever done. The image at right, showing the chapbook, but not the traycase, really doesn't do the production justice.

Each of the 52 copies was handbound, housed in a custom traycase, is signed by Joe Hill, and cost nearly $300 per copy to produce. We're offering copies -- one per customer -- for $400 + shipping.

If you're interested in a copy, please drop us an email at subpress@gmail.com and let us know if you'd like to pay via credit card or PayPal, and we'll make the necessary arrangements.

We don't expect copies to last much beyond today, if that long, so please drop us an email if you're interested.

**************************

Yowza. Out of my price range. I'll pick up the mammoth book...:)

Yeah, i got that today as well. Thats out of my league as well, expecially for a chapbook. I paid that much for the LSoE signed by King.

I got that email too...it is beautiful. But I gotta wonder how a book can cost $300 to make?

I heard the paper stock they used was pulped from splinters of the True Cross and that the ink is actually smelted anti-matter. It was also type-set by the ghost of Johanness Gutenberg channeled through a medium, using letters carved from Mark Twain's teeth, printed in Atlantis, with the page edges deckled by Exalibur, and finally bound in unicorn hide leather.

Oh, right, and it's signed by the author.

At least, that's what I had to convince myself in order to break down and snag one. It looks real purdy.

Holy COW!! I got the chapbook from Joe as a prize for the superhero contest....had NO idea what it was worth. Of course, it's priceless to me since it's got the personalized note and signature from him!!! :)

I heard Joe signs his name with his own blood, thus leaving a bloody thumbprint.

I'm not going to be able to afford this, so I just picked up the chapbook that came with Subterranean's Dark Fantasy anthology.
