PS Publishing will be doing a 500-copy limited edition of Joe’s second PS novel, Horns – there’ll be 300 slipcased copies signed by the man himself, and 200 traycased copies signed by Joe and artist Vinny Chong. The slips will feature a wraparound dust-jacket cover (with the cover art also on the actual boards) plus four interior colour plates. The trays will feature a different dust-jacket (though the boards will still have the artwork from the slipcased edition) plus an additional interior piece… which will complement a deleted chapter from the book (note: the deleted chapter will feature only in the traycased edition).
Details will be uploaded to the order page as soon as PS receive artwork in from Vinny. The book is currently scheduled for February 2010, and the prices will be as follows: 300 slipcased copies signed by Joe, with wraparound cover A (on both the boards and the dust-jacket) and four interior colour illustrations – Â£75 [$125 approx. at current rates of exchange] 200 traycased copies, signed by Joe and Vinny Chong, with wraparound cover B on the dust-jacket (and cover A on the boards), with the same four interior colour illustrations PLUS a deleted chapter AND an extra colour illustration – Â£200 [$330 approx. at current rates of exchange] All copies ordered before the end of 2009 will feature a reduction of Â£10 for the slips (to Â£65) and Â£25 for the trays (to Â£175)… and that’s in addition to the usual pre-publication free postage offer (which will run all the way through to the day finished copies are received from the printers).
Please also note that customers who bought Gunpowder may request the same number for Horns; this will also apply to any future books or novellas from Joe. And finally, the person ordering the first traycase on the ordering page will receive #1, as will the person ordering the first slipcase. (Please note that we will be strictly limiting copies to one per person, whatever the combination of slips and trays.)
