Literally...they are lovely to look at. I don't know if it's just my wide-eyed, rose-colored glasses or what, but these copies of the B/X Companion seem to look nicer than the first batch. 'Course it could just be the typos have been corrected.
But also, my printer was able to do all work in-house this time 'round...maybe the first printing lost something in the out-sourcing? Who knows. All I know is, I feel like a guy who's been running on fumes and now suddenly has a full tank of gas!
All my back-orders will be going out in the mail TOMORROW, even if I have to work through midnight addressing envelopes! My deepest, heartfelt apologies to everyone who's been waiting...and waiting...and waiting... You folks sent me your money and I've failed to deliver, and I accept full responsibility for that. But I will endeavor to not let it happen again...these books will ship!
[by the way, I had a big essay on B/X combat planned for posting but this news is too exciting not to publish. Expect the essay tomorrow morning...]
Hope it was worth the wait, folks. And again, I am so so sorry it took this long!
