I too have ordered a copy of the Special Edition via email. It will sit handsomely next to my signed copy of the first edition. ;)

Could someone please advise me of the best shipping option to choose for US delivery? And/or on shipping insurance? DM me unless you think others would be interested.

From the publisher on Twitter

"At the end of the first day just 20 copies remain of the Special Edition of 𝘈 𝘙𝘦𝘮𝘦𝘮𝘣𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦𝘳 . Email us to reserve a copy!"

I bet most of those reserved copies are members here.

Absolutely.

I am not one of them as I am done trying to bankrupt myself with multiple editions (looks sheepishly at Tolkien shelves) but I think it is great for the collector among us.

Just spoke with a very kind woman on the phone at M-U Books and she reserved a copy of both editions for me.

Out of interest, why did you order both editions, given the special edition is essentially identical to the standard (bar the tipped in limitation)? I feel like the standard edition is redundant for anyone getting the special.

You ask why on a collector's forum, Stu? Because collection!

Hope my email's not too late!
