Seems a bit overpriced to me. I wouldn't mind owning the book, but the starting price seems kind of high considering it is only a paperback.

I think your post is more than coincidence. I just heard from Rene today. He noted the HI calendar in the latest issue of Beyond Bree. I assume that he will order a few and sell via his site.

HOWEVER, and this is NOT good news: I had emailed Anthony Burdge asking that he sent the list of orders (taken via the HI.org website.) He called Monday night saying he had just left the hospital. Jessica is hospitalized with what they suspect was a stroke. So he has other things on his mind at this time. SAY A PRAYER FOR JESSIE AND KEEP HER IN YOUR THOUGHTS. I will keep everyone posted on her condition as I hear from Anthony.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Yes, I think HC did themselves no favours by putting the price up so high. Even just before publication it was going to be GBP 300 and at the last minute they squeezed another GBP 50. It really is a lovely book (and I'm very happy to have my '#3'), but in retrospect it was just too expensive and they printed way too many copies. I wonder how they will distribute the remainder once the web sales completely dry up? If they are still in the 200-300 range after a year I think it is safe to say that there is little chance of them ever selling the remainder of the copies without resorting to some really aggressive discounting (say 30-40%). I'm wondering if they will end up selling in bulk to other distributors (as I think has happened in the past with some of the super-deluxes).

(I'm sure someone will confirm what number we're now on.) When I had to send my faulty copy back (at publication time), I received #153; instead of 50-odd. When I contacted HC in late February this year, sales had only crawled up to #194. Pretty slow I think; perhaps reflecting the slight overpriced nature (remember it was originally meant to be ~£250). Interested to hear how far they've got after a good year of sales...

10% discount would have been nice on the new Tales PR; unfortunatley this email came out after most people had bought it though! Just received mine tonight; haven't opened yet tho'...
