Re-Release?

  • Avatar of Ian Carchman

    I heard from someone that Earthcore and Ancestor are going to be reprinted. Is this a complete farce, or has anybody else heard news like this?

    Avatar of Pons Matal

    If I remember right the FDO himself said re-writes were in the works.

    that he said they would be rereleased under crowns name if he could. He also said they would be re-wrote? and be released in 2012-ish.

    purchased the rights from Dragon Moon Press but I do not recall him mentioning anything about a re-write or a release date. Totally possible that that he did and I spaced it; I picked the originals up way back when, so I wouldn’t have been paying too much attention, particularly if it was a 2012 release.

    Scott told me several months ago that one of them would be coming out in 2009 but that date may have changed.  I do have extra copies of Ancestor that I could be induced to part with for the right number of crack hits.  I might also have an extra copy of Earthcore as well.

    I see copies going on ebay and Amazon for $100.  They are a little cheaper at the moment but fluctuate over time.  I don’t think I could sell one for that price (seems a little dishonest) but I do want to have a collection of all his work!

    Well, I’m a lady so I never talk about my encounters but I had an offer I couldn’t refuse!!!!!!!!!  Let’s just say, it was a once in a lifetime offer that would make everyone jealouse if they knew the details!!!!!!  I’m set for life!!!!!!

    for less than $100.  Not being able to get them in the first place still makes me mad.

    that you could have picked them up easily since you’re an OJ. I remember waffling for a long time on buying the treeware editions since I had already "bought" the audio editions through podiobooks. I had an email exchange with Scott which I’m sure he’s long forgotten, but decided to go ahead and toss down the $10-15 for each just ’cause.

    Given the current market, I’m glad I did, but I still enjoy listening to the stories more than reading them. The FDO’s narration adds such richness to the characters he creates. Then again, I’ve never been patient enough to wait for a novel to come out in print before it’s podcast. And I probably won’t. Must have crack now dammit!

    Why do you think it was me? Do you think Much Ado is so easily persuaded? A mere 430 crack hits will push her over the edge of ecstasy and somehow compel her to send me a few books? Wow, you better apologize to the nice lady, n8! (Or maybe it was me… but the offer is not up for discussion. And don’t ask Shadygirl either, you perve.)

    For questions about what books you want to come out next, don’t be shy about emailing Crown. Just tell them you’re ready to buy the books when they come out. This address should work:

    Crack hits cannot have cash value. That would demean the entire system, wouldn’t it? Can you imagine the type of nonsense people would start posting if they thought each post was worth $$$$ ?!?!?

    to a signing at which Scott will sign his new book "Contagious" for me. The last contagious book signing I had heard about required shots afterwards. :p

    Maybe if there were someone here who was edgamacated, like maybe, oh, I don’t know,… a teacher or sumpin, maybe they could come up with like maybe we could all copy and maybe send to someone else like maybe Crown or something and maybe they would get the message. Maybe.

    I suspect monetizing crack hits would make the problem get much worse though, don’t you?

    as to how or why you suggest that everyone "hit" podiobooks.  What has podiobooks ever done to you??????  Nice podiobooks.com.  I won’t let him hit you anymore.  Or let him train you to fight.  Or………..

    Hey guys so i stumbled upon INFECTED by accident…picked it up for the fuck of it and was blown away by it…blasted through it in one night…picked up contagious the next day…same fucking thing.

     

    I’m not really a fan of audio books and I’m dieing to read ANCESTOR/EARTHCORE…any real word on if/when they’ll be back in print cuz I can’t fuckin find em anywhere…

    Avatar of Stephen Kilbride

    Both books are still available used on amazon as far as I know.

    Some of the copies cost as little as $30

     

    I was only thinking about this last night…

    Contagious arrived at last so I was thinking about hardbacks of Ancestor and Earthcore.I’m gonna go write Crown a nice letter this evening :) 

    Avatar of Shirley Bruce

    My guess is that Earthcore and Ancestor won’t be printed again until 2010-2011 unless we all write letter to Crown strongly suggesting that they re-release the books.  However, as stated above, you can buy copies on Amazon for around $30.  I would highly suggest that you do that for several reasons

    1) the $30 price is one of the lowest I’ve seen in a while,

    2) the ones on Amazon will be the true first printing and thus the books will be more collectible.

    3) you’ll love the books!!!!
