I clicked on Meduson fully expecting to say my usual response when another BL "limited edition" is released and I see what it contains. What is that response you ask? It's just two words. "Fuck off." But to my pleasant surprise I didn't say that when I read what Meduson contains. For starters it's 368 pages which is a bit less than the standard HH novel yes, but it 350+ pages beats the 120-170 pages of the novella range and the so-called "novels" like Tallarn: Ironclad. Then it contains two audio dramas included, at first I thought "They must be tack-ons, short audios like the Christmas advent stuff." No! They are full audio dramas, one of which is already available at £15, and one which isn't out yet and will no doubt be £15 on its own when it is.
This is actually a very good deal and one I consider worth the price. Which is why I bought it, and like you Doelago I am quite happy with what i've purchased. One HH novel that will no doubt be £20 when it's released normally, or perhaps £18 if the fans are lucky, and two audios that would be/are £15 on their own. So essentially i've bought a novel that contains a new story that wasn't included in the initial release and an audio drama, and gotten another audio-drama months ahead of general release for free!
Hell even if Meduson is £15, a bargain for a hardback HH novel that actually deserves the appellation novel, its still cheaper buying this version than it would be getting Meduson, Grey Talon and The Either separately in their normal versions by £10. So this was a definite buy for me.
Well done BL, these are the sorts of deals that you should be offering more often. In fact I encourage as much of the HH readerbase as I can to buy this version of Meduson so that we can show BL what kind of Limited editions we really want.

|Angel of Blood||I don't want the audios though. I just want the book. Why is there no separate option? All that now happens is more eBay sellers like that douche Jizzlefinger, are going to buy them and sell them off for twice the price. Eugh.|

|Brother Lucian||Well im mainly concerned about the ebook version, which's price im displeased with.|

45€ for a hardback and two audio dramas? That‘s... Actually quite good, provided you have not already bought the two audios. A regular HH hardback is 25€, and the audios are available for 13.49€ (/20€ for CD) each? I find it hard to be mad about this one.
I went to the website to order another over priced novella, but left being quite happy with what I had ordered.

Hrm. I see Meduson is available in ebook format as well:
But 25 euro for 368 pages, vs. the 432 in Path of Heaven at 13.50 euro is a ripoff and ill pass on this one.

|Deloth||As the owner of several limited edition releases, I say the more the marrier. Will I own them all, heck no not even close, and I don't want to either really. I selectively cherry pick which LEs I am interested in, and as was said earlier LE releases eventually see their way into a standard release so it's a win/win.|
