Apples and oranges

Let's try this again

As I'm sure you're aware, the Collector's Edition will be coming with two limited edition stickers.

I feel sort of bad that there are some people who wanted a Hardcover but couldnt get one. So what I'm going to do is make a third limited edition sticker, and give it out with the paperback pre-orders. So you'll still get something special with your paperback pre-order, and if you order before the 20th, it will be signed too!

As you know, we experienced some issues with the open of the preorder on Monday. You can get the details here.

At 2pm EST today, we will reopen the store and the book pre-order phase. When the pre-order starts, you will find the books in the store. They will be available to ship anywhere in the world. The books will begin shipping in July.

There are two versions of each of the books. The regular paperback copy which is $19.99, and the Collector's Edition Hardcover, which comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity, and two limited edition Ctrl+Alt+Del stickers for $29.99.

We are only printing 500 hardcover copies of each volume, and we will only be making 460 of those available to purchase. These 500 are the only Collector's Editions that will ever be printed. Once they are all sold, they will never be available again.

All of the Collector's Editions will be signed, regardless of when they are ordered, but they are expected to sell out fast.

If you want a signed paperback copy, you have to place your pre-order before June 20th 2005.

Information about the books can be found below. All questions regarding ordering should be directed to the store. NOT TO ME.
