Depends on what your definition of published is. Last info I had was the email I put in this thread. The books are finished but I assume they are "still waiting"... a description which is strongly associated with CD... on the cases.

I'm going to be positive and say as long as they are telling the truth about everything, this will be an early spring publication.

Of course, I've been "still waiting" over 10 years so hopefully this one is close to done.

This is from Brian at CD

"The Legacies traycases are supposed to ship to us the week of the 20th if all goes well. That's about three weeks later than we were promised, but I guess they got overwhelmed with their holiday box making business. (The books are already in our warehouse, so we just need the cases.) i'm guessing at this point this one might not ship until the first week of January, but it depends on how much help we can get in the warehouse the week between Christmas and New Years!

Thanks guys. I knew CD had sold a few extra copies a couple of months ago, but never knew if they had actually been sent out - never saw any on the 2ndary market.

Got my shipping e-mail today. So if like last week when I got an e-mail on Wednesday that The Passage was shipping and it arrived Monday - then Legacies should be here next Monday. Let's see - 1997 or 98? I wonder what it would be offered at in today's dollars...

Let's say it was '97 and you put your money in something relativly safe, say a money market, CD or even municipal bond.

Of course returns would be different depending on what you invested in but I have to put SOMETHING down so grabbed a site that had historical CD rates and took the 1 year terms and then rounded to the nearest cent. Assuming I didn't fat finger something here we go:
http://www.jumbocdinvestments.com/histo ... .htm#tline


'97 = $200
'97-'98 = $200 + 5.73% = $211.46
'98-'99 = $200 + 5.78% = $223.68
'99-'00 = $200 + 7.09% = $239.54
'00-'01 = $200 + 4.59% = $250.54
'01-'02 = $200 + 2.96% = $257.95
'03-'04 = $200 + 2.05% = $263.40
'04-'05 = $200 + 2.67% = $270.69
'05-'06 = $200 + 4.19% = $281.59
'06-'07 = $200 + 5.40% = $296.80
'07-'08 = $200 + 5.44% = $312.95
'08-'09 = $200 + 3.93% = $325.24
'09-'10 = $200 + 2.02% = $331.81
'10-'11 = $200 + 1.35% = $336.29


Or another way to look at it is that the total return over this time was about 68%

So there there's what your money could have been doing during that time....Now I'm sure the money was spent a long time ago, but maybe we see how much they made in total? :P What was the print run for the book?

500 limited at $200 and 52 lettered at $450

(500 x $200) = $100,000 + (52 x $450) = $23,400

TOTAL in 1997 = $123,400
TOTAL in 2011 = $207,492


Potential interest that could have been made off this but probably wasn't = $84,092

That's not too bad - it's about what would be charged today for a King S/L. Thanks.

Love the case - and actually haven't heard of a couple of these guys - guess I'll be carefully reading this one.
