    That's nice!
    I am not keen of the type (is it the usual one for King in the USA? dont think so), and i doubt that they'll put THE GUNSLINGER but.. otherwise, it is a VERY GOOD cover!

    I personnally would quite like see this artwork as the official cover :

    No word yet if a specialty press and/or signed limited is in the works.
    The first thing that came to mind was that this sounds like an episode of Scooby Doo. Crazy antics and hilarity ensue.



    I hope to heaven that any signed limited edition is handled by an independent publisher who knows what they are doing and let the big publishers stick to the mass markets.

    @ Patrick for the Scooby Doo idea:

    My first thought was that amusement parks need at least one clown. It'd be nice to see a cameo by a certain clown.

    He does seem to be integrating this kind of thing here and there lately, right? Good call, Brice!!!

    Joyland to be published under the Hard Case Crime imprint in June 2013:

    http://www.thebookseller.com/news/ne...ase-crime.html

    A new novel by Stephen King, Joyland, is to be published by Titan Books imprint Hard Case Crime in June 2013.

    The book will be released as a paperback first, with e-book to follow at a later date. King said: "I loved the paperbacks I grew up with as a kid, and for that reason, we're going to hold off on e-publishing this one for the time being. Joyland will be coming out in paperback, and folks who want to read it will have to buy the actual book."

    The title, set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.

    Hard Case Crime editor Charles Ardai bought world rights in the title, with King's novel The Colorado Kid previously released under the imprint. The deal does not affect King's relationship with his usual UK publisher, Hodder.

    Ardai said: "Joyland is a breathtaking, beautiful, heartbreaking book. It's a whodunit, it's a carny novel, it's a story about growing up and growing old, and about those who don't get to do either because death comes for them before their time.

    "Even the most hardboiled readers will find themselves moved. When I finished it, I sent a note saying: 'Goddamn it, Steve, you made me cry.'"

    There has to be, with it being a paperback 1st edition someone is bound to snap up the rights for a hardcover, hopefully not JUST a s/l that would suck big time.

    With this coming June next year when is Dr Sleep due?, this year or next?.

    Ms. Mod on stephenking.com had reported a few weeks back that it was delayed until 2013.

    I hope it comes out with 5 different covers, 3 variants and a fake signature. Those are my favorite.

    Initially, Ms Mod said that Doctor Sleep would be out in January, 2013. This was later "pushed back" to sometime in 2013. I'm still hoping for January, but who knows?

    I am looking forward to Joyland, though. It sounds intriguing.

    While I am eager for the story, the fact that Hard Case is doing it doesn't really entice me as regards a "Collectible". Don't get me wrong they did a nice job with TCK, but it just wasn't......my cup of tea? No, WOW factor I guess. I'll of course buy it though!!!
