    Default Stephen King's Mr. Mercedes-Collecting Discussion

    No information on a Signed Limited, but in an interview with Parade Magazine, it was disclosed that Stephen King has “more or less” completed his first hard-boiled detective tale, Mister Mercedes."
    Time to speculate.

    It's not collecting discussion, but I do know a little about the basic premise of the novel from King's recent UMass Lowell appearances:



    The part germane to this discussion begins at about 6:23...

    Yeah it definitely sounds very interesting. I've been really enjoying King's purely realistic fiction of late (Batman & Robin..., Premium Harmony). Hope it's something like that.

    It is the internet, so why not try to post info as soon as possible.
    I put up a Wiki article with a mock-up image (thanks thanks thanks to Harrison Ryan-who should BTW just do the cover for the real book-the fucker produced the cover image in 24 hours!).
    Please, please, if anyone finds ouy an ISBN, Page count, anything to add I will. I have no problem posting reasonable speculation, as long as it's labeled as such.

    That's funny. I just ordered the US edition from Amazon.com!
    Maybe we should get local copies and just swap
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    You should have waited for the exclusive "Waterstones Edition".

    That "exclusive" Waterstones edition of Dr Sleep... wasn't the only difference that it had an additional foreword by SK? If that's the case it wasn't that exclusive, I picked the same book up from Asda (or may have been Tesco's) with that foreword in it.

    My thanks too John. I also ordered the UK hardcover.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    The cover was slightly different I think.

    There should only be a US proof this time. No UK proof.
