THE COMPLEAT MAGICK VOLS. 1-5 appears to be back on the project board again, complete with a pre-publication special. In one way this is good news.

Notasgoodnews:

(A) Still no hard release date. I've seen this before, but not with a prepurchase price attached to it. To me, this means that there is still a chance for the project to be pushed back or off of the release schedule.

(2) No individual sale of volumes at this time, so those of us who have the first four and are waiting for five have a very difficult monetary decision to make. Pre-publication special pricing is $695 for the set.

Does anybody have any additional info in relation to the above?

Me too.

I've mailed to see if they are considering bringing vol 5 out separately for those of us with the original 4. Its worth asking I guess.

The fact is that the five volumes will be unabridged reprints of the magazines, unlike the first 3 volumes (with the effects re-arranged and categorized). They will also be different from the fourth volume (a reprint of the magazines, but edited, not unabridged...). Personally, I would have liked a volume matching the first three (I may be the only one that likes the categorization of the effects Smile ).

Having the four volumes AND an almost-complete magazine set, I'm not very tempted by a reprint...

However, it seems Collectors' is also working on the Andruzzi collection... that may be fun!
