Then stop. I used to buy every LE novella as well but I stopped when they became a joke. They simply aren't worth the money anymore... i'm not sure they ever were really.

Yeah I'm hearing you, but each time I go to stop I hear that little man inside my head say "But you've come this far?". Which is sad, in all honestly I'd rather read my Esienhorn or Ravenor omnibus again for the fourth time than reread my HH LE's.

I had the same voice, but I smothered it when I saw that I had spent over 300 on LE's, when quite frankly now I wouldn't spent a half of a third of that on the assembled LE's that I have now. They simply aren't worth it. Just think about what else you could do with that money, and then really look at the LE's and ask yourself; do I enjoy these enough to sacrifice the other stuff I could do with that money? For me the answer was HELL NO.

True. How long do we wait now to get the LE's in regular hardback? 1 year or 2?

I'm actually saving for a 2nd hand book I've found. Ravenor the Omnibus, hardcover with dust jacket, all near fine condition. $150 with postage. Damn that'd look sweet on my shelf, rare hard to find book.

About that yeah. I'd rather just wait the year and get them in a normal novella format, or wait a bit longer and see if they are released in an anthology as Brotherhood of the Storm was.

Really? I've never seen one. How's it look and where did you find that?

Yup. I bought the Wolf King, simply because I hadn't bought any in a long time, so it didn't bother me so much. But I've just stopped buying the Limited Editions generally. As said, i'll just wait for the regular hardback. Hell I never take them out the dust jackets anyway.

Not to mention the fact that I have fuck all interest in Calth anymore. I'd rather read more of Istvaan than fucking Calth. Know No Fear was so god damned good, Calth was amazing. Now, it's stale beyond repair.

Has ADB's Ragnar sold out?

ADB always produces quality but I think even his work isn't enough to justify the LE pricing
