Fans of Steven Erikson's The Malazan Book of the Fallen were wowed when Subterranean Press announced and began delivering its first print run of the series.  Astounding quality, unique artwork, and limited availablility brought collectors out in force to snap up almost every copy immediately.  Those buyers fortunate enough to acquire a copy of the first book were given special allocation access for each subsequent release to complete their sets.

As time has marched on and the final book of the series is being released, fans old and new that were unable to partake in the first print run find themselves staggered by inflated (some may say 'outrageous') aftermarket prices as demand far surpasses supply.  Those that do engage third-party resellers and attain one volume find themselves nigh-impossibly challenged to complete their own set and often must feel satiated and lucky to have one or two volumes to adorn their bookshelf, standing as pristine monoliths to their Malazan fandom next to dog-earred, oft-read paperbacks and the occasional hardcover copy.

Understanding that all facets of production undertaken by Subterranean Press are not cheap, this petition calls for all parties responsible for making those first editions to join forces once again for a second print run.  As more readers discover the work of Steven Erikson and find themselves becoming diehard fans of the *Malazan* series, the market is there waiting to be tapped once again.  And we the fans implore you to take our money, even in these most extraordinary times in which we live.

Whether the second print run emulates the first in total - number of copies, limited and lettered releases, artwork selection, release schedule - or modifies any part of the process to better meet current demand without devaluing the First Editions are decisions best made by Subterranean Press.  The intent of this petition is to call their attention to current demand for their products and to spur action towards making Second Editions come into being.
