    Default New hardcover editions of The Talisman & Black House

    Not sure why these are being published. Possible Talisman 3 in the wings?

    That sort of explains it then -- Scribner never had the rights to those books before. They must have reverted from Random House and been assigned to Scribner.

    Me too! As a combo, I like these better than the original Black House and the reddish (?) Talisman reissue.

    Damn nice covers. I can't wait until a Talisman/Black House 3.

    As you might know, Scribner is publishing stunning new hardcover editions of
    The Talisman and Black House by Stephen King and Peter Straub. Due to
    popular demand, we'll be creating a special slipcase to house both books in
    stylish fashion for our collectors, and as a special bonus we're including
    an incredible poster created by Tomislav Tikulin just for this set! This
    poster will feature original, never-before-seen artwork and it'll look great
    on the wall of your office, reading room, den, or library.

    We'll only create enough slipcases and posters to fill our preorders, so
    there might only be a couple dozen or a few hundred (at the very most!) of
    these collectible book sets anywhere in the world!

    I ordered the set (despite the insane shipping costs to Europe). Looking forward to receiving it!

    I'm not a big fan of the new covers. I think it's the bland font.

    I ordered the books through Amazon. Nice discount, plus very low shipping/handling costs.
    The slipcase I hope to order from CD at a later date.

    I understood that CD will only produce as many slipcases as needed for the number of sets that are ordered.

    Co-signed. I don't get why his covers are getting simplified with the advance of tools available to artists. His older fonts were, at least to me, much more eye-catching: It, Misery, Bag of Bones, The Shining, The Green Mile, most DT books etc. These two fonts in particular stand out too much. Maybe a different shade and a little more blending into the picture would've worked better.

    I'll still buy them but I wish his camp cared enough to put a little more thought and effort into it.

    I ordered the slipcase with books from CD. I want to see how many items I can get back-ordered from CD. It's a contest I'm having with myself; the anticipation is killing me, but it's FUN waiting for all these books and things to come out (I realize that's a contradictory statement, but it's still true). Once they arrive I look at them and then put them on my groaning bookshelves, only to see them again when I dust them.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    It's a serious situation! Dust mites lay 30 to 50 eggs every few days, and dust accumulates mainly on books and carpeting, causing allergic reactions and breathing problems. I read it in the newspaper, so it must be true.

    These new books draw zero interest from me. Great books but I already own them...

    I've felt the same way. I wouldn't mind the slipcase, but doesn't seem like it's worth the price for a couple of reprints.

    I like these covers a lot so I will be getting them anyway. But the humongous shipping costs ($64!) are starting to gnaw at my conscience... maybe Siep's way is the way to go after all.

    Well, to put it into perspective, I almost didn't buy the 2nd printing of THE GUNSLINGER trade hardcover from Grant. After all, I already had two editions of it. I doubt these books will increase in value that much, but you never know!
