    I'm sure the cover 'art' is just a placeholder.

    I'm not a huge fan of illustrations. This isn't Winnie the Pooh. Just feels like a limited edition should offer something special other than the next of the novel you already have on your shelf in a great Doubleday first edition. Better cover art, too.

    These books keep going up in price every time they release one. It won't be long before the #ed editions will be what the lettered editions used to be. I will be getting one of the #ed editions and one of the gift editions also. I am glad they won't be taking orders until January.
    Anyone know if Dr Sleep will have a #ed edition or any thing?

    Yeah? I'm afraid it's going up in price only for us as we wouldn't find so easilly buyers for at least $3500-$4000 if we want to make some profits at some point later. Look in AbeBooks, Biblio & eBay - it takes MONTHS (or never) to find buyers for limiteds priced thousands of $. At the end you stay with it for your own pleasure. Sometimes Limiteds are a big problem vs. a regular edition's copy, flatsigned and rare due to low signing copies relative to high print-run (examples: Everything's Eventual, Cell, TWTKH Scribner ed.,etc). A very outstanding figure here in this site once wrote that a regular signed copy is RARER than the limited in certain circumstances, and is better get sold. Food for thought.

    All morning I have been wondering why they announced the book today but will not take orders until Jan. 2013? Can anyone explain the reasoning behind this to me?

    I would guess the economy has something to do with it, but I have no idea. Although, I'm glad Bill did it as I wouldn't be able to afford a copy right now, so now I can save up for it and I will have the money when its announced.

    I do have to agree with others that no afterword, introduction or Before the Play, or any extra text at all is disappointing. But I will say that the artist is really quite amazing and I expect the illustrations to be top notch. The Neil Gaiman Hill House Publishing books done by her were nothing short of gorgeous. So it should be a beautiful book.

    FUCK YES!

    I'm not a S/L collector, but I'm so going to try for one of these. And put me down for a gift edition too.

    I am assuming that cover art is a placeholder as well....

    I'd guess it's because:

    1. They wanted to control the news and may have been concerned about it leaking out elsewhere first.

    2. As a small print publisher getting a project like this, I bet they are excited and it's fun to tell the people you know will appreciate it rather than sit on the secret longer than they already have.

    and

    3. The King people said they could announce.



    If Subterranean is granted the rights to publish a DR. SLEEP limited edition down the road, is owning THE SHINING likely to give you first right of refusal for a matching number/letter? (I don't know how Subterranean operates when it comes to sequels.)

    Thanks, Bev. Given the hefty prices of these editions, a "lesser" companion volume would have been nice.

    Well, the news was already out to some extent so perhaps you are right on #1. And the other guesses are good too. The more I think about it the more I think it has to do with taxes. For whatever reason Subterranean Press wants the income to occur in 2013 rather than 2012. The taxes on the pre-orders would be due April 15, 2013 if they started taking orders now vs. April 15, 2014 if they wait until Jan. 2013 to start taking orders. That is still just a guess on my part.

    I suppose announcing now will give SP lots of attention leading up to January and great opportunity to promote over the next 2 months, showing snippets of art and stuff, helping to sell those gift editions, although 1500 isn't that high, I'd imagine they sell pretty quickly?

    Does the release of this book coincide with the release of Dr Sleep next year?. Very close timing. I do hope that SP get that ltd too, matching set.

    I do like the thought of having a copy of this sitting next to my Salems Lot and It!

    From the years of buying sub press books I will say Bill is pretty good about keeping customer numbers for books published by Sub Press that are by the same author. I've received personal emails by Bill asking if I wanted to match a number if I forgot to request it. I would assume he would do the same if they got Dr. Sleep.

    Coincidently, I just finished reading The Shining for the first time last night (yes, yes, I know, scoff if you will). I never read it before because I saw the movie back as a teenager or something and just didn't like. The book was better, of course, and unsurprisingly not a whole lot like the movie (from what I remember anyway ... haven't watched it in many a moon). I wouldn't mind having a numbered of this, just because ... not even close to interested in a lettered at this price though.

    I'm not a huge fan of illustrations. This isn't Winnie the Pooh.
    Pablo, how about if Winnie the Pooh was swinging a mallet while going down the hallway? Come on all you artists and illustrators, I'd really like to see this!!!!!!!

    Guess I'll wait and see how it looks and what the reviews say. The Shining's one of my favorite books and I loved the "Gift Edition" for CD's IT. I am a bit hesitant of getting another LE right after IT, though.

    I thought I heard that King used some of the ideas at least from the "After the Play" in the miniseries he did with Garris.

    Yeah, without the "Before The Play" section and maybe an intro by King at least talking about the "After the Play" seems a bit pointless other than to have a nice signed HC of the book. A great one it is, but the special edition of Salem's Lot had the extras in it which certainly seemed more worth the high price tag. The special edition of IT also had the extra intro as well as a ton of art too and was a nice big book in a slipcase and/or traycase.

    I wonder why King didn't want to use "Before the Play"? I always found it to be (in its Whispers form at least) an interesting insight into the hotel's history. Not necessary to the novel per se, but for something like this the perfect place to put it back in.
