    One copy of the hardcover edition of Icarus, delivery anywhere in the world included.

    I can't possibly sell this to you cheaper than an online bookseller, but it's here as an option for those who prefer to get just one copy mailed to them. I'm hoping that you will buy the four pack instead because it's such a good deal. Also includes access to the preview digital edition.

    ONE and ONE: Some readers are unhappy getting the $62 behemoth edition all by itself, because it doesn't include the hardcover copy of ICARUS. And some people aren't crazy about the $76 8 pack because it doesn't include the behemoth or because they don't think they can share 8 books well. So, with a little juggling, we're offering this, which is the behemoth, delivered in January, and a copy of ICARUS, delivered in late January or possibly early February. Hope this helps. US delivery only on this reward, please.
