SYNOPSIS: Selected by the publisher, these are the classic reprints that find each author at the top of his game. Earthling Publications artist Deena Warner provides original art. The vast majority of this book's print run will be available FOR FREE, to allow people who have not read these talented writers a chance to do so at no monetary risk, when signing up for Earthling's newsletter.

Available in states:

SOFTCOVERS: Several hundred unsigned softcovers were produced and given away to people who signed up for Earthling's newsletter during
it's first year (March 2004 through March 2005).
HARDCOVERS: A tiny print run of hand-sewn hardcovers were produced that feature a special limitation page with a total of NINE signatures: all eight authors and the artist. These will be the only hardcovers produced. While a number of these were given to the contributors, a handful (only 10 copies) were for sale to the public at a price of $120 each with a limit of one per customer, no dealer discounts were given. Follow-up volumes are a genuine possibilty, and those customers who bought Volume 1 will be given first dibs at future volumes if they're produced. A SCARCE collectible for fans of any of the above contributors. HARDCOVERS: SOLD OUT within 24 hours!
