'Sons of Anarchy' collector's book arrives early, with finale spoilers
UPDATE 6:25 PM: The book’s publisher, Time Home Entertainment, Inc., has released the following statement: “As the publisher, we have a very strict embargo in place for the on-sale date of Wednesday, December 10, 2014. We have learned that a wholesaler has broken the embargo and released a limited quantity of books in advance of the on-sale date. While extremely disappointed, we are very proud of the book, which is a wonderful tribute to the show.”
Warning: Any fans who’ve already received their copy of Sons of Anarchy: The Official Collector’s Edition, do not read it until after the Dec. 9 series finale.
Creator Kurt Sutter took to Twitter on Dec. 5 to apologize to fans after hearing that “some distributors and book outlets” had sent out the book—which contains details about the final episode—a week early. It was supposed to be released Dec. 10, the day after Sons rides off into the sunset. Read Sutter’s appropriately colorful, angry, and disappointed statement below.
He asks that fans not share their opinions on the series’ ending on social media, which would spoil the experience for others.
Sons of Anarchy: The Official Collector’s Edition is written by Tara Bennett with a foreword by Sutter.
