Meanwhile, my review of MoN for the New York Review of Science Fiction is actually on the front page of the current issue, next to a transcript of a speech by Poul Anderson. I'm still in a happy daze.

Excellent, Lisa…. Now you've made me curious

Happy that you've considered print.  Will there be a  hardback?  I've a feeling that due to the weight and size of the book that a softcover, even with care, will lose pages, have spine issues and not last long.

 

Don't take that the wrong way, I understand it's to see what can be done and drum up interest etc. I think a hardback would cost about £38 to get down in a small batch. That's in Buckram (loads of different colours available). I think that's what I was quoted, with bonded leather being £50.  Genuine leather was £65 (only in red or grey as they had some left over from another job), or £150 if you wanted to choose the (have a  wider choice of colour) for genuine leather and they had 150 colours to choose from. A larger order would bring that price down, but then there would be postage on top. That's the killer For a book of that size, it's just tipping over the 2 kilos weight (not including packaging), so that's Recorded UK £14.85 (which covers you up to £50 insurance), Signed Europe £20.30, USA £31.35 and Japan/Australia £32.85. A real killer, but that's Royal Mail prices, Parcel Force may offer it less, and there's also other couriers. Plus the bulk send and distribution in the actual country.

 

Don't take the above the wrong way, I'm just being helpful.

It was available for download for a time on the site; we've removed it pending an official print release. As soon as we have more news on that, we will definitely be publicizing that on YSDC.

Damn...... I seemed to have missed the boat. Oh well, I will just have to buy the thing when it comes out. Any idea when?

One more question. Though I definitely prefer reading on dead trees, I cannot help but agree than when working on something, electronic is easier (if only because you can cary everywhere on a tablet). Will the (final) paper Companion be bundled with an electronic version . Or will the differences be so unfathomably minimal than the 0.9 edition should be equivalent ?

Well, I was just about to go print a copy for myself, but, as a contributor, I could not be more excited for this. Hurrah!

The current thinking is that both electronic and paper versions should be available.

 

The upcoming MoNC has all the corrected/updated text and maps. The 0.9 version is essentially 3+ years old in form.

 

The final release will be the 2014 "complete" edition.

I took a look at the preview physical copy of the Companion at the UK Games Expo yesterday. That thing is massive, much bigger than BtMOM even. I knew there was a lot to it from the old pdf version but it took seeing it in the flesh for me to realise what a huge tome it is. I can't wait to get my own copy.

The key questions are when, where, how, and how much?

I agree.

 

It's a pity that the free download of the 0.9 version has disappeared, though I understand the reasons.

Only seen the print version in photos but it looks impressive.

My own little Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion. I will name him Nigel, and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him...

Hm, any odds I'd be able to purchase this while I'm in London for WorldCon and don't have to deal with shipping? Cuz that'd be awesome.

It would be neat but I'm afraid that won't be on the cards. We're currently waiting on external timetables before announcing further details.

Well, on the plus side, that means more luggage space.

If anyone is very keen, that advance copy that Pookie is hugging in post #54 is available in the YSDC Travel Fund section.

 

There's just the one.
