Suntup Editions To Publish Robert A. Heinlein’s Starship Troopers Limited Edition Book

One of the greatest science-fiction military adventures of all time, Robert A. Heinlein’s Starship Troopers is a timeless classic as resonant and influential today, as it was when first published.

Set 700 years in the future, Johnnie Rico never intended to join the infantry, but now that he is in the thick of it he must fight for his life; first in the toughest boot camp in the Universe, and then thrust into battle against humankind’s most alarming enemy.

So convincing and realistically imagined was Starship Troopers that the space war epic was considered highly controversial upon its release with several critics claiming it glorified the military and violence. Still, there was no denying Heinlein was at the peak of his powers as a writer. Starship Troopers received the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 1960, and by 1980 it had been translated into eleven languages and was still selling strongly. Today, it is regarded as a key work of the 1950’s, responsible for popularizing the subgenre of military science fiction.

Engrossing and fast-paced, Heinlein’s classic is so much more than a science-fiction novel. It is an intense discussion of ideas ranging from the political to the philosophical.

About the editions:

The limited edition of Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein is presented in three states: Lettered, Numbered and Artist editions. The editions measure 6” x 9” and feature four full color illustrations by Dan Dos Santos. All editions are signed by Dan Dos Santos.

The Lettered edition is limited to 26 copies and is a bradel binding with a leather spine and Japanese cloth sides. Endsheets are Hahnemühle Bugra and the edition is printed offset on Mohawk Via, with the colophon printed letterpress.

Numbered Edition:

The Numbered edition of 250 copies is a quarter cloth binding with custom designed letterpress printed sides, and a foil stamped spine label. Endsheets are Hahnemühle Bugra, and the edition is printed offset on Mohawk Via. The slipcase enclosure is covered in a two-toned cloth, and the edition is signed by artist Dan Dos Santos. ($255)

Artist Edition:

The Artist edition is limited to 750 copies with a dust jacket featuring a wrap-around illustration by Dan Dos Santos. It is a full cloth, smyth sewn binding with two-hits foil stamping. It is the only edition of the three with the dust jacket, and is signed by the artist. The edition is housed in an embossed paper covered slipcase. ($125)

Suntup Editions To Publish Robert A. Heinlein’s Stranger In A Strange Land Limited Edition Book

The first science-fiction novel to enter The New York Times bestseller list, Robert A. Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land is one of the genre’s most groundbreaking works of literary fiction.

Valentine Michael Smith is human, but he has never met another member of the human race. After being raised by Martians, he is sent to Earth, where he must learn what it means to be human. On this planet, he struggles to understand the social mores and prejudices of human nature that are so alien to him, while his own powers — including telepathy, clairvoyance, telekenesis, and teleportation — make him a God amongst humans.

Stranger in a Strange Land is Heinlein’s deliberate attempt to challenge social mores, exploring the meaning and relevance of institutions including religion, monogamy, money, and the fear of death. Generating considerable controversy upon its release, the novel was banned from school libraries and reading lists, while many reviewers took offense to what they assumed was Heinlein’s view of how society should be. Heinlein later stated, “I was not giving answers. I was trying to shake the reader loose from some preconceptions and induce him to think for himself, along new and fresh lines. … It is an invitation to think – not to believe.”

Stranger in a Strange Land won the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 1962.

About the editions:

The limited edition of Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein is presented in three states: Lettered, Numbered and Artist editions. The editions measure 6” x 9” and feature eleven full color illustrations by Thomas Canty. All editions are signed by Thomas Canty. The text is the complete, uncut version.

Lettered Edition:

The Lettered edition is limited to 26 copies and is a bradel binding with a leather spine and Japanese cloth sides.

Suntup Editions To Release The Dark Half Paperback Covers Collection Print By Don Brautigam

Previously, Suntup Editions has published prints of Don Brautigam’s iconic cover art from The Running Man, The Stand, Night Shift, Skeleton Crew, and The Bachman Books. 

This month, Suntup presents the final print in their series of Brautigam covers, the art from the first edition paperback of Stephen King’s The Dark Half.

Part of Don Brautigam’s genius as an artist was capturing the essence of a book while also creating imagery so eye-catching it practically leaps off the cover. The Dark Half is no exception as Brautigam uses the two sparrows to not only recall the novel’s famous presentiment, “The sparrows are flying again,” but to define King’s story of two halves creating the whole. Now, this cover art is available for the first time in its original form and without cover text.

Suntup Editions Stephen King Finders Keepers Covers Collection Print By Sam Weber

According to a 2014 tweet from Stephen King, the author had finished the first draft of Finders Keepers before Mr. Mercedes was even published. Sam Weber’s depiction of raining blood from the Mr. Mercedes cover carries over here, this time with an open book in the foreground, as the story centers around the murder of a reclusive writer.

All prints are hand-signed by Sam Weber. Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 40 signed copies per size, worldwide.

A Scanner Darkly Artist Gift Edition Book By Philip K. Dick Now Available For Pre-Order From Suntup Editions

Razor sharp in its depiction of drug-induced paranoia and madness, A Scanner Darkly by Philip K. Dick is as unnerving as it is riveting.

Set in a dystopian Orange County, California, in the then-future of June 1994, Substance D is the most toxic drug to ever find its way onto the streets. The drug destroys the links between the brain’s two hemispheres, causing, first, disorientation, and then irreversible brain damage. Bob Arctor is an undercover narcotics agent desperate to discover the ultimate source of supply, but to find any kind of lead he has to pose as a user, and inevitably, become one as addicted as those he works among.

First published in 1977, A Scanner Darkly received the 1978 BSFA Award for Best Novel, and the Graouilly d’Or Award upon the novel’s 1979 publication in France. In 2006,  writer/director Richard Linklater shot a live-action film, starring Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson, and Winona Ryder, and then animated over the underlying images creating an eerily lifelike and richly detailed animated film adaptation.

A Scanner Darkly is steeped in an insider’s knowledge of 1960s drug culture. Philip K. Dick once stated of the novel, “Everything in A Scanner Darkly, I actually saw.” Based largely on his own experiences and the many friends he met and lost along the way, A Scanner Darkly is Philip K. Dick’s deeply personal exploration on the fragility of identity, how we choose to define ourselves, and how easily that definition can be altered and obliterated.

Features:

– 6” x 9” trim size
– 320 Pages
– Limited to 750 copies
– New exclusive introduction by Carrie Vaughn
– Full cloth, smyth-sewn binding
– Two hits foil stamping
– Six full color illustrations by Vanessa Lemen

Suntup Editions To Release Limited Edition Book of The Auctioneer By Joan Samson

One of the finest and bestselling horror novels of the 1970’s, Joan Samson’s The Auctioneer is a chilling masterpiece of terror. In an isolated New Hampshire farming community where little has changed over the past several decades, John Moore and his wife Mim do their best to maintain the family farm and live a modest, hardworking life. But from the moment the charismatic Perly Dinsmore arrives in town, soliciting donations for his auctions, the community of Harlowe slowly and insidiously starts to change. As the auctioneer carries out his terrible, inscrutable plan, the Moores and their neighbors will find themselves gradually but inexorably stripped of their freedom, their possessions, and perhaps even their lives.

Joan Samson

Upon its release in 1975, The Auctioneer was received with wide acclaim. Newsday hailed it “a suspenseful, engrossing novel with the most gripping and violent ending we’ve encountered for some time.” The Grand Rapids Press lauded it, “a powerful novel by a powerful author.” The New York Times called it, “explosive and chilling… I challenge anyone to resist it after reading the first few pages.”

Despite critical praise, sales of over a million copies, a popular television advertisement, and efforts to turn the novel into a film, The Auctioneer went out of print soon after its release and was considered a lost gem of a novel for subsequent decades. Written by a young, talented, and promising author, The Auctioneer would ultimately be Joan Samson’s only novel. Sadly, she passed away shortly after the book’s publication, edging the novel further into obscurity. The Auctioneer found its way back to print in 2018 in a trade edition, returning at last to chill a new generation of readers.

With echoes of Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery” and Stephen King’s Needful Things, Samson’s slow burn of understated violence builds to a climactic fever pitch with an ending that makes for one of the most unforgettable horror novels of all time.

About The Editions:

The limited edition of The Auctioneer by Joan Samson is presented in three states: Lettered, Numbered and an Artist Gift. The editions measure 6” x 9” and feature six black & white illustrations by Dave Christensen, as well as a new exclusive introduction by Warren C. Carberg, Jr.; and a preface by Grady Hendrix which appeared in the trade edition. The Lettered and Numbered editions also include a reproduction of the original first edition dust jacket art by Wendell Minor.

Lettered Edition ($2,150)

The Lettered edition is limited to 26 copies and is covered in rustic cowhide leather with a foil stamped cover. Endsheets are handmade bark paper and the edition is printed offset on Hahnemühle Ingress. The enclosure is covered in Japanese cloth. The edition is signed by Warren C. Carberg, Jr., Dave Christensen, Grady Hendrix and Wendell Minor.
