    Default Stephen King Collecting Questions

    Hello people.

    As many of you know Cemetary Dance (http://www.cemetarydance.com) will be releasing in December the upcomming book "Stephen King: The Non-Fiction", by Rocky Wood and Justin Brooks.

    I had the opportunity to get an ARC and see the book. I must say that it impressed me in a very good way. Both authors did (again) an excellent research job, because EVERY single non-fiction work that I knew (and a lot that I didn't, of course) is listed there, with a description of it, where it appeared and some interest comments about it. Also includes the essay "My Little Serrated Security Blanket", a very funny and twisted essay about an ice axe.

    It covers over 560 works of non-fiction. Too bad there isn't an slipcased edition that contains this and "Stephen King: Uncollected, Unpublished".

    The cover art is done by Alan Clark, who did the excellent cover illustrations for The Complete Dark Tower Concordance, the S/L edition of The Regulators and Quietly Now among others.

    If anyone wants to order the book, here's the direct link to it:

    I also have the ARC and agree with Ari--this is a very informative book. I haven't been able to figure out if they missed anything either. I think it's as comprehensive as it can be!

    It would've been a better book if it actually included all the non-fiction pieces instead of just talking about them

    Im sure copyright issues prevented that. Actually, I'm surprised they were able to print the one item they did.

    Well they had to get permission to get that one in the book. So one could see how problematic it would be to get all, or even more pieces of work.

    Default The Plant

    Pardon if this is an ignorant question. You see, I am no collector therefore I am ignorant on the subject. I want to finish reading "The Plant" without taking out a second mortgage. Are there any copies for reading avaliable?

    It was "sold" as a download on the Internet in 2000. Payment was via the honesty system. Info
    Now your best bet is to have someone send the file to you, or occasionally a printed version of the file comes up for sale on E-bay.

    Hey Ari, can you send me the PDF version? I only have a printed copy. Would love to have it on file too!

    Thanks, Love!

    Something that havent been said, is that anyway, the book is UNFINISHED and not planned to be.

    Steve did only publish the first volume of the book, entitled Zenith Rising, and that do include 6 chapters... (do that make sense?)

    Yes.
    As of mid-2001, six parts have been published (making up the first somewhat self-contained part of the novel). King has said that there will be more, but that some other projects will be finished first.

    I'm not home now (I'm out of state, visiting my wife's relatives) or I'd offer to send you all the PDF file. I should be back home Thursday. (I'm on the hotel's internet computer!)

    I really don't expect King to ever have the inclination to finish The Plant. Just my two cents' worth.

    I agree with John. I think that Zenith Rising is all you're going to see of The Plant.

    I've never read what exists of the Plant before. If it wouldn't be too much trouble, would someone mind sending it to me? Pretty please?

    I believe (I can't assure it for sure since I don't have it) that one of the versions is the scanned one from the original. The other one is the one I bought full.

    I paid on the honor system for 1-3 but I was told there would be no more so I gave up on it.

    Thanks for the info and the link. I'll download it in a few hours.

    Default Collecting Questions

    There was an older thread about collecting questions, but I couldn't find it, so I'm starting a new one. Sorry if it's still around...

    Anyway a guy on another forum asked this question:

    Anyone have any background info on LAND OF ENCHANTMENT, the press that published the gorgeous, oversized, illustrated edition of Koontz's TWILIGHT EYES and also King's Cycle of the Werewolf? Just wondering who originally ran it, if they published anything else substantial (I think they did a Berni Wrightson art book), etc.
    And he's been getting no replies. I was wondering if anyone could answer this guys question since I know there is a lot of interest in the Limited Cycle of the Werewolf, I'm assuming someone would know something about the publisher.

    I have a copy of Land of Enchantment's Twilight Eyes still in the publisher's shrinkwrap, but have no idea on the company's background, etc. I got the book when it first came out from Bob Weinberg, now an author and collector, then a bookseller and collector. Other than King's Werewolf, I didn't know they published anything else.

    Christopher Zavisa ran Land of Enchantment Press in 1979 when he approached King with the idea of doing an illustrated calendar. Don't know anything more about him than that.
