  1. The lettered Meisha Merlin / Subterranean Press set with chapbooks is probably the holy grail for a lot of folks. I haven't seen a full set posted in awhile.
  2. Lettered - very nice. I have a normal numbered edition and I treasure it.
  3. The limited edition of LEGENDS is another hard to find treasure. It contains the original Hedge Knight novella. It is particularly scarce because you are also competing with Robert Jordan fans and Stephen King fans (among many others) to get the signed limited edition.
  4. I acquired it through ongoing correspondence with him. He sold me dozens of international editions over the course of several years and agreed to sell me the printout as well. He is wonderfully personable and kind, but obviously a lot busier nowadays.
  5. I have 2 of the unbound (loose leaf) proof copies of AGOT that were sent out prior to publication (maybe 50-100 copies out there I think) and an unedited manuscript copy of AGOT that Mr. Martin printed for me from his home computer about 15 years ago (I had intended to get it bound in leather but haven't managed to do so yet).
  6. The television series is certainly as popular as ever; I'm not sure who told you the last few seasons were bad. This is not reflected in the ratings. The season premiere has now passed 30 million viewers (over 16 million watched it live) and the show is being televised in 186 countries and territories around the world. There's just so many fans out there (television series and books) that I don't see the price coming down for many years, if at all. You also need to factor in that the young folks who read it when it first came out in 1996 are all grown up now, some are earning real paychecks, and they're feeling nostalgic; this tends to drive the price up.
  7. I am working on insuring my collection of books. Does anyone have a sense of what a full, matched MM/SubPress lettered set of ASOIF is valued at right now? Any thoughts on whether or not some letters are more valuable than others (letter A versus letter ZZ)? I am also looking for the values on Legends and Legends 2 limited editions (numbered not lettered) Thanks!
