    1,750 copies of FULL DARK sold out in 2 months and I think IT might have more "core" fans...! We'll see what happens, should be fun either way!

    Thanks for the order! For Cemetery Dance SK books, we always try to do 750 copies since that's what we did for Buick, SOD 1 & 2, FDNS... King has been very generous to sign this many sheets and I know we and our collectors really appreciate it!!

    This is big news and really caught me by surprise. I'm pretty excited and I'm glad I got my order in early.

    Well it being back up may have just been a fluke, seems to be down again, this is highly frustrating....

    The site crashed right when I finished my order. It did not give me a receipt and the book is still showing in my cart. When I tried placing the order again it says it can't because its a duplicate. DID MY ORDER GO THROUGH OR AM I SCREWED?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME surprise by the way. (if my order actually went through and I get the book)
    Need first editions of:
    1.Carrie
    2.Salem's Lot
    3.The Shining
    4.Night Shift
    5.THE PASSAGE uncorrected proof

    I like the Limited edition jacket the best, followed very closely by the gift. I'm sorry to say that I don't care for the lettered edition jacket at all. If you ask me the lettered editions should have NO text on the covers at all, only on the spine.

    Ordered a Limited!

    I've got to say this is the most pleasant Limited Edition announcement in a long time. IT is my second favorite novel by King. I'm really excited. And I can order and pay for it, thank you! this isn't like Grant where I got shut out even though I bought the previous book and many others through them.

    Great news...about time this book got the treatment it deserved!

    I think the limitation and price is just about dead-on...fewer copies would freeze out too many people....too many more and it wouldn't have been a legit collector's item.

    I'm probably going to dither until it's sold out...oh well....but I think this is a sure-fire investment-quality limited (I don't think the lettered is ever "worth" a price this high, but collectors at that level are less concerned about the secondary market than I would be).

    Big in more than one sense of the word as well. This litterally is going to be a huge book, I think we figured almost 3 times as many pages as our edition of FULL Dark (don't quote me on that though).

    I'm guessing that hundreds of people tapping refresh at the same time probably isn't helping the issue much ;-)

    The cost of the lettered is certainly higher than any of the other King books they have published. FDNS lettered was $1500.

    I'm a sucker. It's my favourite book by King....Lettered and limited ordered.
