UNSIGNED ENCYCLOPEDIAONE-TIME DEAL This might be your first purchase or it might be a back-up/lending/"insurance" set.
ABOUT THESE SETS They are 100% identical to the current Encyclopedia, except they do NOT have the signature, even though the book cover and slipcase says it is a Signature Edition. They are new and in shrink-wrap, but they don't have the signature of J. Michael Straczynski. (More details why below)
IN RETURN WE ASK... ...you will NOT resell it. (Though giving it as a gift is fine). And because we trust you, we are NOT marking the books "NOT FOR RESALE" to keep them pristine.
FAQWHY NOT HAVE JMS SIGN THESE ALSO? We would have to break the shrink-wrap and then sell them as USED. Same problem in reverse.
IF JMS DOES NOT CHARGE FOR HIS SIGNATURE, WHY ARE YOU OFFERING THESE UNSIGNED AT 50% OFF? By publishing industry standards, these are considered defective books because they are specifically titled as SIGNED but they don't have a signature. It's not about the signature but the fact that they are "technically" defective.
IF I BRING MINE TO A CON, WILL J. MICHAEL STRACZYNSKI SIGN IT EVEN THOUGH I GOT IT AT A 50% DISCOUNT? Absolutely. He will be happy to sign it and inscribe it specifically to you. That's one of the benefits of these unsigned copies. He will be at a lot of cons in Summer, 2019.
DO THESE UNSIGNED COPIES HAVE ANY DEFECTS? NO. They are perfect and pristine. They were intended as public relations and review copies, but we sold out before we even got a chance to do PR.
