End of the pre-order

After a wonderful two and a half weeks, I am closing the Polaris pre-orders effective tomorrow (Sunday) at noon (so, if you still want to order one, you've got a brief shot at it right now.) The pre-orders have wonderfully exceeded my expectations, totally 54 books and totally covering my entire production expense for the first run (printing, editing, and layout).

In fact, since I've already sold half of my first run, I'm also printing a second (non numbered, non inscribed) edition of 100 copies, titled the Up Above the World edition. The fact that I had to do this is astounding to me.

I am certain that I will sell out the remaining 54 copies rather quickly -- if not all at GenCon, then shortly thereafter on my Finnish book tour or the first few IPR orders. In short, if you want a numbered edition, order it right now, 'cause I can't make any other promises.

You guys have made me very happy. Thanks a ton.
