To my MEGheads and other cherished readers:
As most of you know, my family and I live in S. Florida. Over the last 27 years, we’ve dealt with quite a few hurricanes – my wife reminding me that I missed 2 weeks without power while doing a book tour for The LOCH back in 2005. Now, as Hurricane Dorian churns directly for us, I’ve been rushing to finish signing something really cool that I’ve been working on for awhile.
I always try to offer my
MEGheads something special that you would be proud to add to your impressive Steve Alten collections. The last packages were put out to bid because I only had 20 complete sets of the 6 volume MEG comic – in and of itself very rare --- and really well done. Combined with the other items (including the last 16 copies of the MEG: Generations 2nd edition) and you definitely made out well. Those packages are now at the post office but may not be on trucks until after the hurricane passes. (I’ll send tracking #s when I can).
I haven’t pushed the Vintage package of late as we were running low on MEG tooth frags which I like to add as bonuses. Frags have been provided over the years by a few amazing MEG tooth divers/dealers I have met. At the top of that list is Steve Alter at Steve’s Fossil Shark Teeth (
) who has great teeth at wholesale prices. Last week Steve sent us a new batch of frags that are among the largest I have ever seen – and a perfect bonus to a new package of goodies I have been working on.
When a publisher prepares to launch a new book, they prepare a sell sheet which highlights the story and marketing. These glossy hard stock one sheets are sent to bookstores, buyers and publicists and some are truly works of art. Being the pack rat that I am, I knew I had saved the original artwork; I just needed to go through my file cabinets storing 23 years of research in order to find them.
The good news is that I have found three of the best which I’ve spent time and money on reproducing, numbering, signing, and authenticating 100 sets. Included in the package is a first edition hardback of UNDISCLOSED, a page-turning factional thriller disguised as fiction that reveals the truth about UFOs and ETs. Also included is one of the last copies of the MEG mass market 1st edition (now out-of-print). Add to that a signed 1997 vintage bookmark and a medium to large MEG tooth frag and you have a one-of-a-kind package.
Total costs for everything:
$99.95 (plus S&H).
The larger frags alone are worth twice that amount as large MEG teeth are getting harder and harder to find.
The complete package will go on sale at noon on Sunday September 1st, est time at
MORE PERKS FOR BEING AMONG THE TOP 50 TO ORDER:
Besides getting the best MEG teeth frags and the lower numbered mini sell-sheet posters, the first 18 people who order will receive SIGNED copies of UNDISCLOSED, the next 10 will receive a mini poster of The LOCH collector's edition cover, signed by myself and artist Erik Hollander. EVERYONE who places their order BEFORE Tuesday 12:01 am will also receive a signed vintage DOMAIN bookplate.-- the same one I sent out 20 years ago when monthly newsletters used to be mailed.
Tim Shulte will be processing orders, sending out the largest frags first in the order received. Meanwhile, I’m racing to get him everything and finish the September newsletter before Dorian strikes…
