Approaching Dusk

Many people lamented the death of the second printing when it fell though last year and spoke of rising up to the challenge themselves. On February 18, 2014 I joined the IRC and the team started this project with a simple spreadsheet called "To Be Done."

On March 17, 2014, we publicly announced our work on the project after almost six months of complete silence on the website. We knew there was still a long road ahead, but we made enough progress in our month of working to know for sure this second printing was going to happen.

Now, less than six months after the revival of this project, I feel it's time to call it an astonishing success. We've shipped over 2400 books to 34 different countries all around the world. What started as a small project in 2012 printing just 350 book sets, evolved into one of the largest endeavors in the fandom thanks to the direction of the new project team.
Ultimately though, this would not have been possible without the generous support of everyone who signed up. Thank you.


So what happens now?

I need to get my thermal printer fixed so the couple international orders that needed address corrections and any future orders can be shipped out.

We'll start sending out invoices to people who signed up on the waitlist. Each set will be $80, plus shipping and the payment processor's fee.

Eventually I'll update the FAQ to the correct tenses and amend some small stuff.


What about a third printing?

Right now there realistically is not enough interest for a reprint of Fallout: Equestria to be feasible. If you missed out, I am truly sorry. We did what we could to reach a wide audience, but unfortunately it's impossible to reach everyone.

What about Project Horizons, Pink Eyes, et cetera?

As the school year starts up again for many members of the project team, it becomes increasingly difficult to find the time necessary to run a project of this scale. Ultimately until there is a public announcement, I'm not going to speculate on future printings.

We always post here when major events take place. So I would still recommend regularly checking back. If you're savvy, the RSS feed will be the easiest way to stay up to date.


As always, feel free to post on the forums or email us at FOEPrintProject@gmail.com if you have any questions. If needed, I personally can be reached at zemming@zemming.org (but really, most stuff should be sent to the project email, not straight to me).
Other than that, if you want to hang out and chat, feel free to swing by the #FalloutEquestriaBook IRC channel.

I just want to say thank you for all your work, the books are wonderful, and I am glad they made it in good time to Australia. they are now standing pride of place on my small book shelf. KKat wrote a wonderful tale, and you and your team did it justice with the layouts, the covers, the work, and everything that you all have done.

Ok, As someone who got bitten by the bug of collecting fandom written books, I missed out on putting my name in.

That being said, is there any list for those of us who do desire copies of this book, in the event that some cannot complete their end of the deal purchasing FoE? If there is any means possible at obtaining a copy, I would be most grateful.

Thank you.

Hi there! Sorry you missed out. Unfortunately at this point, the second printing is over. Everyone who signed up and paid has already completed their end of the deal.

We do have a waitlist, however it is by no means a guarantee. If there are leftover sets, those on the waitlist may be offered an opportunity to purchase the books.

Zemming, thank you for the waitlist link. Maybe, I might just luck out...
If not, there is always keeping my eyes peeled for the next time there is sufficient interest in a printing.
On a side note, If you know of any other books I should look for, I would be most grateful. I have Past Sins and Scion of Chaos (both autographed copies) and am looking for a copy of Twilight's List.

Thank you again.
