    Evidently King is writing a novel titled "Joyland" that is about an amusement-park serial killer.
    No word yet if a specialty press and/or signed limited is in the works.

    The first question that comes to mind is whether or not this is a serial killer in one specific amusement park (which is my guess) or a serial killer that hunts only in amusement parks.

    You knave, the first question is-are there going to be Signed Limited editions, and if so who is doing it, and how do I get to the front of the queue?

    I'd guess the first option of a "resident" serial killer in an ammusement park.

    Edit:
    are there going to be Signed Limited editions, and if so who is doing it, and how do I get to the front of the queue?

    I wonder if the killer uses the rides as the weapon? Ever seen the movie Mr. Bean? That virtual coaster shook Bean up pretty bad....haha.

    I hope SK doesn't abandon the project like he did with The Plant because of possible similarities.

    Funland by Richard Laymon had a similar concept so I am curious to see how SK approcahes the story.

    I read Laymon's Funland and I think you may be right about King abandoning it.

    The premise doesn't inspire me or anything....but I wouldn't be worried about SK finding a unique take on the subject matter.

    'The Shining' wasn't the first haunted house story, after all...haha...

    I'm guessing that this will be a bit like "The Phantom of the Opera" or "Quasimodo". Just a guess though...To answer the question I think this will be a small press run like BB.

    I enjoyed The Plant and wished he finished it. I think he could probably tackle any similar story with his slant on it. He most likely has drawers full of abandoned projects and stories that were too similar to something else. We're lucky to get as much as we do from SK.

    I was thinking about this the other day ... Back in the day, the first editions came out and then SOMETIMES, years later, a special edition/signed limited came out. Now, it seems that every book is released as a signed limited.

    Most of SK's limiteds came out along with the 1st's starting with Firestarter. I think The Stand was the first special S/L that came out years after the 1st but it was based on the longer version. So, maybe the Illustrated 'Salem's Lot Edition or the Easton Dead Zone.

    1984 Eyes Of the Dragon 52+250+1,000=1,302. (SKC states an AE as indeterminate but <10) =1,303-1,312
    1984 The Talisman 1200+70 AE's=1,270 (SKC lists the following: 30 AC's, lettered-indeterminate, 70 AE's, 5 designer, 1,200 #'d)

    I wonder if King is getting fed up with the signed editions. He doesn't appear to enjoy that aspect of the process or the book signings. And with the recent screw ups from S&S the whole process left as many people frustrated as grateful to get a signed copy. I'm guessing it is also a terrific headache for everyone. And the ebay reselling appears to be a touchy point with him and Ms Mod. I enjoy getting a signed book as much as anyone, but it sometimes seems like acquiring these books has become its own objective. I can't imagine that pleases SK too much. It's part of his new release routine, but I wouldn't be shocked if he stops doing it. He certainly doesn't need the extra money.

    I would rather there were fewer of them but I hate the ones that are really expensive like $1000 or more because they'll only get more expensive after being released.

    I don't really think he minds them as much as he lets us think. If he did I really doubt they'd happen.

    I agree. As a writer I would imagine that having your work treated in the most favorable of production's has gotta mean something to him.
    The Houston Astros cheated Major League Baseball from 2017-18!!!!

    They cheated their way to a couple of League Championships & a World Series!!!!

    Is that how we teach our kids to play the game now?????

    Well, if you have a signed copy of "The Shining", you can make your own S/L so to speak. I believe there are still a couple of these available!!!
