    I picked this up on eBay for well under cover price. Not pristine by any means, but a fun little item.

    Thanks, Brian. Collecting them was fun, and thanks again to the members who bought and shipped me the hard-to-get ones.

    It's a flipback edition of the book. The entire text is included, and the book itself is only about the size of a smartphone. The pages are super thin, like a Bible. Onion skin? Whatever it's called.

    It may not be very practical - I doubt I'll ever read it - but it's a fun variant on the usual.

    Size relative to a standard paperback, chosen at random:

    Showing the flipback cover, and title page:

    I think that it was the only King flipbook that got released.
    Those flipbook were launched a few years back (we also had a french publisher), but I think that they sort of disappeared off the market since

    You were supposed to take them to the beach and pretend to read them while you looked at girls.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    It wasnt done just for Misery, but that's the only King title done in that format.
    I am not sure how many titles by misc authors were done before they decided to discard that format

    edit : amazon.co.uk lists 31 titles from 2011-2014

    Thanks for the comments and info, everyone. As needfulthings said, you can still order them new from Amazon UK, and there are usually a few up on eBay. So it's not a rarity, but it's a fun collectible.

    I'm actually really happy with the condition mine is in. It's used, and I definitely wouldn't rate it "as new", but it's a solid "VG", maybe even "VG+". Frankly, it's in better condition than some new books arrive via post.

    Thanks, guys! The Insomnia traycase has a couple of problems, but the other three books are in very nice condition, and both Desperations have their errata sheets.

    I did not like that book for some reason, but I do like the limited editions of it. I still covet the lettered edition.

    I don't care much for the story, either, but it's a nice edition, and I like the illustrations. They don't come up as often as I'd expect either, given the largish print run.
