|Kane collections gone forever?

Hi there....new to Nightshade, but sure to be spending lots of money with you guys from now on.
My question is about the Kane collections that came and went pretty quickly. They're commanding big bucks now in the used market (especially Gods). Are you guys going to print anymore, or do you only do single runs and then let stuff go out of print again forever? Obviously the demand is still high for those books, seems like a no-brainer to print more. Plus, I'd like to get a copy of Gods and still be able to pay my rent. Any plans?

I don't know if you got a separate answer from anyone at Night Shade but my own guess would be that the Kane books are unlikely to be reprinted (in hardcover anyway).
Firstly, after the Night Shade editions went out of print I believe that the SFBC released book club editions which would have pretty much have satisfied any remaining demand for these titles for some time to come.
Secondly the Night Shade calendar is pretty full with new material going forward and if there's any opportunities (or desire) for reprinting anything it's more likely to be something like the Hodgson set for which the first two books are already OP.
I don't think that the Kane books are really that expensive since the Gods in Darkness is available for perhaps $75 at most and the second book for much less. Maybe they're not cheap but they are far cheaper than I think they should be!

If you gotta have Kane... there are the SF book club editions. We haven't felt the need to sink a lot of capital into a reprint because The Book Club editions are out there.
We always wanted to make the books available to a new generation of readers, and the book club deal allows for that, even if it is out of print from us.

Sorry to enter this discussion so late...
The SF Book Club editions are now out of print, also. So, it does appear that used will be the way to go.
I hope Night Shade will consider a second printing at some point in the future.
