The reprint (or second printing if you prefer) of HotOE contains all the same information that was in the boxed set, with a few adjustments:

  • The six "large font" main softcover books have been somewhat reformatted into two books of 384 pages each*
  • This was done without sacrificing any contents, actually there is a teeny bit more added, and some typos were fixed
  • The separate train car handouts are now in one of the books
  • The color poster map is basically the same
  • The Mims Sahis is in the book, but can be printed out from the PDF
  • The die cut Mims Sahis is also available for purchase separately chaosium.com
  • The small Traveller's companion book (which added nothing new) is available as a separate purchase
  • Not box, of course
  • The passports, luggage stickers, postcards, and such are on pages in the book, and/or printed out from the PDF
  • This is a shrink-wrapped bundle that contains both hardcover books and the folded color poster map
  • An unfolded version of the color poster map will be available on redbubble.com in the chaosium store

*All the info from the original 6 books fits into two books with a much lower page count now because the font used in the first printing was much larger than it needed to be. Just reducing the font from 11 point to 9 point GREATLY reduced the page count.

 

Dear SunlessNick,

I think the quoted post has the information you seek.

LATEST NEWS:  We are very close to having a Print on Demand (POD) version of Horror on the Orient Express ready. By "very close" I mean in a month or so. It's not going to be a big box full of 6 books

To provide some more info based on the above responses: We chose to get HotOE back into print for a few reasons. First, we were getting asked at least once a week if there we had any spare copies

HotOE will eventually be back in a new edition—most likely in a slipcase rather than a box—sometime in the next several years (no firm date yet).

I'm already on the newsletter and RSS feed but I had managed to miss that. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. From that post I'm assuming that there will be stock at some point in the UK warehouse but it may be available after other countries due to Brexit? Which I am fine with (well I'm very very mad but at the UK government not you) and will happily wait until it's available.

We stock almost all of our in print product in our UK warehouse. We do have not plans to change that. Yes, there may be some delays in getting stock there, and yes we sometimes run out of a single item or two for a while. It is also our most expensive warehouse for storing product so we keep the inventory leaner than we wish we had to.

The UK is our second largest market after the USA. By that, I mean that we sell more of our books in the UK than any other single country except the United States. Thus, we very much want to keep it stocked. That's why we went to all the trouble to set up a UK warehouse. The reason it is tougher to stock the UK quickly is solely down to BREXIT.

Thanks Rick, I really do appreciate having a UK based warehouse. As I said previously I do not blame you or anyone at Chaosium in the slightest for any delays, I think it's fairly clear where the fault lies there. 

I also do appreciate you bringing Beyond the Mountains of Madness and Horror on the Orient Express back into print. I only started running CoC in 2019 and have amassed a fairly sizable collection and it was always slightly annoying me that I had missed out on the Horror boxset and I'd be waiting at least 3 years for a Masks equivalent version but this has really filled the gap! I'm just glad it's all available and do not care in the slightest it is in B&W and with no new material. 

Also are you planning on adding Canis Mysterium to your POD line? I've wanted to get it for a while but all the physical copies I can find are £40+ (I know it's available in PDF but I prefer running from a physical book).

I have the same problem. I used to get the newsletters, I had to unsubscribe later on (sorry, long term travel) but when I tried to re-subscribe, they hasn't shown up since. Any tips how I can proceed to fix this?

(BTW, it's hard to know when something that doesn't show up is supposed to be there. 😄)
