  1. Awesome! I would have preferred an announcement of a BRC special edition, but, yes, I will shell out even more money for yet another SilverFin limited edition! Not sure about the paperback, though. John, do you know if it contains any material not included in the hardcover, or is the "all new material" just the same introduction as the one we'll get in the hardcover?

  2. Sorry, Tanner, I don't know any details beyond what's here. I pested poor Penguin enough for this. I'm shy about going back for more. But in time I'm sure some more details will emerge. :)
