    Couldn't get your link to work, Becca. But this one worked for me: https://www.bookdepository.com/Sleep...?ref=grid-view

    I always order my UK releases from Book Depository. I've always received first editions and always free shipping anywhere! Can't beat that!

    Thanks for the info. I was planning on buying 2 and after shipping, it was $2 more from Book Depository. But after Waterstones murdered so many copies of Charlie, I feel better ordering from them!

    From the CD website today (03/31/17):

    I’m extremely excited to report we will be publishing a special edition of SLEEPING BEAUTIES by Stephen King and Owen King. I cannot say more at this time, other than we’ve already read this massive novel and we’re incredibly thrilled to be able to publish it in three different deluxe editions. Details to come later this year, and again, we’re not accepting reservations yet, but we expect this one to sell out in record time.

    I know this is being discussed in CD thread....but thought it appropriate to post here as well.

    Looks like the H & S edition will have FOUR variants only seen UNDER the dust jacket, ordering from Amazon or any other on-line bookstore will be a lottery. These variations will only appear on the first printings. Variant completists start weeping now...

    Yep. Order 4 and they will all be the same front board...and be thrown on your front porch in a gunny sack.

    Apparently there will be a sticker on the outside of the DJ identifying what lies beneath. Although stated random selection when you pre-order; I fear what RF stated and they'll all be the same front board when ordered together. Still, I'm probably going to order from several sources outside of Waterstones. If I do end up with multiple copies of the same front board, I'll sell to members here at my cost plus shipping. Something to keep in mind if you wouldn't otherwise fool with the whole mess.

    Something's hiding beneath the Sleeping Beauties cover...

    I think you just proved RF's point there Bruce!
    "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

    I'd much rather have USA 1st editions. I have both UK and US editions in my collection but if it came to it USA editions every time for me.
