Limited Editions

From time to time I get emails from readers wanting to know how they can purchase copies of the signed, illustrated limited editions of the Ice & Fire books published by Meisha Merlin and Subterranean. The short answer is, they can't. Those were limited editions, they were fully subscribed, Meisha Merlin is out of business, and SubPress has no extra copies for sale.

(Yes, I have a few extra copies myself, but they are not for sale).

However, I've just happened to notice that there are presently not one but two (2!) sets of said limited up for bid on ebay. These are the numbered editions (not the rarer lettered), and both have matching numbers.

The ebay item numbers are 221012911878 and 150806055324.

I don't know the sellers, and I can't vouch for them or the condition of their books. (I will vouch for the fact that these are gorgeous books, lavishly illustrated by Jeff Jones, John Howe, Charles Vess, and Tom Canty, respectively). These ebay sales have nothing to do with me, and I cannot tell you more than I just have. If you have questions, you will need to contact the sellers. But considering how often I get asked about those books, I thought I'd mention it, if any of you are interested.

Please be advised: these sets are not cheap. The books have appreciated quite a bit in value since publication.

Limited Editions - Full Set
I have the 4 copies of limited editions with Dance ordered and paid for. Given some large bills with daughters education i am interested in selling them. They are all the same number (436 i need to check) and i have never read but just looked at the excellent illustrations. If anyone in interested buying (live in the UK) i will consider any sensible offer.

Re: Limited Editions - Full Set
You might want to offer these on ebay, or perhaps on Westeros.

Numbered sets have been going for more than $3000 lately, I believe. Do a search for completed auctions on ebay and you can find the actual prices.
