RRETROSPECTIVE ALL SOLD OUT
May 5, 2004
The numbered edition of GRRM: A RRETROSPECTIVE is now sold out, I have been informed by my publishers at Subterranean Press.
This means the book is now officially sold out in all editions. The trade hardcover sold out on publication, last September. The super-deluxe lettered edition, which is still in the works, was fully subscribed well before that. Some bookstores may still have copies on the shelf, but there are no more to be had from Subterranean.
Will there be a second printing of the trade hardcover? Yes, possibly, but that’s far from definite, and in any case won’t be for some time.
Will the book be reprinted in paperback? Probably not. With a half a million words and all those illustrations, it’s too large and too expensive a project for most paperback publishers to tackle.
I had a splendid time working with Bill Schaefer and his team at Subterranean, and I’ve very proud of the book that we produced. I hope those of you had a chance to snag a copy will treasure it for years to come.
