Last chance to upgrade

This weekend is the last chance to order the Junior Classics Backer Edition Vols. 1-3 and to upgrade to the leather set. There will be the opportunity to purchase a leather set in the future, but no more upgrades from the hardcover sets will be available. We will leave the order pages active until midnight Sunday evening.

We don't have time to arrange for a digital backer upgrade, so if you're a digital backer and you buy a leather set before the deadline, email me and we'll send you your choice of a) $30 via Paypal or b) $40 credit for Arkhaven/Castalia books.

In Castalia Library news, the cowhides for Divine Comedy and both Plutarch volumes just arrived at the bindery despite the former having been ordered more than a month before the latter. All three books are scheduled to be bound as soon as possible and will probably be shipped together. While we can't guarantee they will arrive before Christmas for everyone, there is a reasonable chance that subscribers in the USA will receive them before December 25th.

I can't afford this and I don't got kids yet, but I would like to purchase it sometime in the future. Will this edited version of Junior Classics continue to be available somewhere?

Yes, the complete hardcover sets will be available through our normal distribution channels just like the rest of our books. They will have a normal logo in the place of the Original Backer logo on the back covers and will not say Original Backer's Edition on the title pages, but spines and covers will be identical, so they will match on the bookshelf.

I've talked my wife into buying the hardcovers; we'll be ordering Vols 1-3 tonight. This is a great day. Actually, all days are great; God is just that awesome. And so is the Supreme Dark Lord.

I predict that she will love them so much, she'll be convinced it was her idea in the first place.

She's not a reader (unless it's a cookbook). Our youngest is autistic, but I'm hoping I can get him to sit and listen while I read them to him. And the twelve-year-old is into Greek Mythology (Percy Jackson, but it's a start), so he should enjoy them as well.

When you're finished conquering Italy, maybe you could slip over to Canada and coup d'état Prime Minister Sparkle-Socks. I'm sure his skull would make a fine addition to your throne.

Does it have illustrations and color plates? I couldn't fin d this in the description.

Blogger VD November 27, 2020 11:06 AM  

It has hundreds of illustrations. It has no color. The challenge of making the illustrations aesthetically match was difficult enough, getting all the different color styles and palettes to work together was not viable.

I backed the hardcover set and sent my shipping address per the instructions I received by email few days ago. I did not receive a reply of any kind. Should I be worried?

Blogger VD November 27, 2020 1:32 PM  

No. We don't do confirmations of every step in the process. If we don't have your address, you'll be receiving an email tonight.

Looks like about $900 to upgrade to the leather edition. I wish that was in the budget, but it's not. Oh, well, I'm looking forward to the hardbacks.

Thanks for the follow up.

Ordered! a good day.

If they'd just get their arses in gear and confirm the GEOTUS.... i could upgrade courtesy of the bookies, as it is, I'm very happy to start collecting the set as it is.

In years to come I'll remember having my son, for the excuse to buy these!

To Vox:

I'm the guy in Canada that owns the 3D scanning booth. I believe you were interested at one time in producing collectibles of Alt Hero characters.

I trust you found a source closer to home for the scans. I would draw your attention to the value of such scans, rigging, and this sort of app:
