Will there be a preorder price on these? Or better yet, a multi-book discount? I've been sitting on the Japan books for ages...ok for about a year and a half....but it seems like at least 18 months! Hope to see them soon! :)
PS: Just reread your thread....YEAHHH there will be a prepublication price!
Only the first printing of Spirit Theater had a "record" in it (actually it's called an "Eva-Tone Soundsheet). Subsequent printings have not. No materials exist from which to make a high-quality dub for a CD.
Wow Mr.Kaufman! Thats some great news! Made my day after a bad college exam :( ..
May I ask a question though, these books, after the reprint, will stay in the market for some time right? Should I get them fast before they go flying? ( e.g John Bannon's Dear Mister Fantasy didn't stay in the market so long .. I missed it .. ).
The new book on Japanese magic, comparable in size to Five Times Five, should be out in the fall, at the same time that I reprint Five Times Five: Japan and New Magic of Japan. I'll offer a special price for all three.
I think it's a good mix of material, but probably 50% of it is cards. I haven't received the final draft of the entire translation yet, and we've also added quite a bit more material than was in the original Japanese version. So, still getting it all sorted out.
