As promised, here is a list of pre-pub titles that will be cancelled in 30 days unless they get enough pre-orders to make it into production. If you really want one of these titles/collections, now's your chance to show your support!

These are two I would really like... I know you have no Crystal Ball but is there any chance these might be broken up to allow individual books a chance or is Kindle my best bet if these PrePubs go bye bye?

This is part of a series that was recently released .... after a very long period in production.

I'd be sad to see this lost.

I want all the Baylor and Fortress Press products. I have already ordered them. So if they are cancelled I am fine with it. I ordered those products 4 years ago.

Interesting list. I thought all the volumes on Babylonian verbal inflection patterns might be a problem. Instead, 'soft' stuff mainly.

For any Clementine weepers: https://www.amazon.com/Jewish-Christian-Interpretation-Pentateuch-Pseudo-Clementine-Homilies-ebook/dp/B00EIG8YJQ 

You'll pay maybe $5 more.

I put this one to illustrate. You'll notice, it's an ebook. Very unlikely there's a lot of Clementiners among the Logosian population. I'm not a Vyrso enthusiast ... the searches don't mix and I never remember. But, it does beg the question.

EDIT: Just for info, this resource is quite good, if you just can't throw in the towel on the Ebionites (like me). It's one of the few Ebionite-associated books (Pseudo-Clementines) that survived the heresy-burners. I went ahead with the Kindle.

Ben:

Why is 
https://www.logos.com/product/52362/the-sense-of-the-universe-philosophical-explication-of-theological-commitment-in-modern-cosmology 
in the above list ?

Was the email notification that it is shipping on March 2nd sent in error?

Confused

https://www.logos.com/product/52513/paul-and-the-politics-of-diaspora

would also seem to be a potential problem given it is currently part of 
https://www.logos.com/product/129083/studies-on-pauls-cultural-background 
which is showing as "almost there".....

This suggests to me, Ben, that I still will be able to acquire this volume.  That is good news.

David:  digging deep, aye??  Good stuff.

Why, why, why. Sad to see this included in the list:

Vyrso has some [unknown] number of Fortress books.  Perhaps these titles could be moved to Vyrso.

What is the series, MJ?

EDIT:  Never mind.  I found it.  (I should pay closer attention to the product page Embarrassed)

I wonder if individual titles are counted when they are part of a bundle?

I don't order a pre-pub title when it is in a pre-pub bundle I order.

There are several Fortress titles that I will miss. I didn't find any additional in the list that I wanted.

I wonder if another search parameter could be added to pre-pubs, such as: Soon to be deleted (removed)? Or a special section at the beginning of the pre-pubs. Something to draw attention to them.

Yes. This should happen. How else will people be aware of what is about to happen? All these about to be removed pre-pubs should be in a section at the top of the pre-pub list with their expiration date made plain. There is nothing about this on the pre-pub listing pages.

There should also be a notice on each of these about-to-be cancelled pre-pub pages.

That's a great idea!

And the number of Fortress books in Vyrso is currently 17: https://vyrso.com/products/search?Publisher=Fortress+Press - definitely room for more.

Sometimes the hurdle might be a collection itself. For example I'm interested in these two books out of the Baylor New Testament Studies Collection:

https://www.logos.com/product/25244/baylor-new-testament-studies-collection#005
https://www.logos.com/product/25244/baylor-new-testament-studies-collection#007

But the price for the whole collection is to steep for me. However, I might consider to pre-order them if they were offered separately. Just a thought.
