I totally agree with you (Rowns). To be honest, I don't think I will even bother with buying a copy up front to get an early number. If they do release 500 copies, there is no way on earth that they will sell them without a very deep discount, so why throw money upfront at HC needlessly? Makes more sense to wait a year and get 30-40% off.

The only reason why CoH has sold (perhaps) two-thirds or so of the print-run is that we - as a small group of collectors - have purchased multiple copies in the crazy belief that some powerful marketplace for them (that clearly doesn't exist at present) will spring into existence and give us a huge return. We actually only have ourselves to blame, really. Who do we think is ever going to buy this huge reserve of second copies off us?

If HC do release this as 500 copy edition, I personally see taking a stand on this book (by not purchasing it) as sending a message to HC that they need to treat their core customer base rather better than they have thus far.
