I would love to have copies of all of Anne's books in a Deluxe Edition. Is there one? The hardbacks that are standard issue aren't as lovely as i would like. I guess I want a book as attractive as the story inside the covers.

Many of Anne's books are published in special, limited or deluxe editions (Easton Press for example). You should check out the 'Collecting Highlights' in the Book Collectors Forum here, it's a good place to start. There is also a great book called "Anne McCaffrey: 40 Years of Publishing", by Mathew Hargreaves, which lists most of the editions and is a signed, limited collectable in own right.

You are welcome! There are quite a few collectors here who know a lot about all the various editions that have been published, so many of them will know more then I do. I only collect Pern so I don't know an awful lot about collecting her other series', but you have come to the right place if you want to find out! Good luck with your collection!

And sometime its easier on the eyes. For some of the hardbacks I have are from the Science Fiction Book Club (R) editions.

TKHooper...Just know that not all of Anne's books are available in the *Easton Press* editions...but the covers are very beautiful. I have one of these, the Dragonflight edition...because it was signed, very beautiful and I didn't know at the time it wasn't a
T R U E, AMC collectible.

As Maelin said, only some of the books have been published by Easton Press. They are beautiful, but run upwards of $100 on the used market. (And you can't buy new direct from Easton unless you want ALL the books they publish for SF; they work as a subscription service).

Also look for the editions printed by Brandywyne Press. They've done six or seven of her books, mostly the romances but also Moreta.

The Brandywne editions are beautiful. I have the Moreta one. I dont actually have any of the Easton Press editions, but they are on my list.
