    The books were summer capers, and in that regard they succeeded well, I think. Not King's best works, for sure, but not bad either. Just fun. I liked them much more than, say, Joyland.
    I thought that Finders Keepers was a lot deeper and more engaging than the other two, likely because of the reading/writing aspect. And I *loved* Joyland.

    Like it. That image reminds me of "The Iron Giant".

    I liked that a lot! Wonderfully atmospheric. (As for the placement of the eyes, isn’t his head tilted upwards?}

    I hope we get a nice cover in the UK. Outs tend to be a bit generic, although the one for Sleeping Beauties is relevant, and rather nice

    Yes, I often like the UK covers better, but not that one. Has more of a spy type thriller feel. Is every novel ever written "breathtaking"?

    Is the Outsider in The Upside-down? Is the cover just Stranger Things homage or is there a tie-in?

    No book tour for this one or Elevation according to Ms. Mod. I suppose that leaves open maybe a book festival or one off type event like Bridgton a couple years ago.

    Just realized this book is being released exactly on my birthday, May 22.

    Simple shit that makes me happy

    I wonder if you'll be okay to read this book without having read any of the Hodges series...

    Something odd I just noticed. According to our Release Dates List, not counting Gwendy's Button Box, this will be the first King novel published in May since Gerald’s Game in 1992 (the first volume of The Green Mile was also published in May of 1996, but I'm talking full-fledged book). And other than Gerald’s Game, prior to that it was only The Drawing of the Three in May of 1987 and The Running Man in May of 1982. For bonus points the uncut version of The Stand came out in May of 1990. But that's it! Seems like King doesn't like May for some reason.

    I've just came across a neat surprise in Stephen King's The Outsider. One character he promised to return. Can you guess who?
    Wanted list:
    The girl who loved tom gordon ARC with King's letter
    The Plant #3 Unsigned.
    Maximum Overdrive Cardboard truck
