    Default Sleeping Beauties UK S/L - Get it quick!

    H & S just announced a UK S/L of Sleeping Beauties signed by Stephen and Owen King! Limited to 250 copies! LINK

    Details:

    Dear Reader,

    Today marks the 70th birthday of an author who has steered our popular culture like no other: Stephen King. From his 1974 debut Carrie to The Dark Tower and the current media frenzy surrounding his creation IT, we live in the world Stephen King has made.

    Almost 70 novels and short-story collections on, if anything King is proving even more prolific. Hot on the heels of the recent End of Watch and Gwendy's Button Box, next Tuesday sees the publication of Sleeping Beauties, the master’s first collaboration with his son Owen King.



    Sleeping Beauties Exclusive Edition
    Pre-Order



    To celebrate Stephen King in his 70th year, we offer Sleeping Beauties in both its standard edition, yours to pre-order at Half Price and something else very special. Absolutely exclusive to Waterstones, we present our beautiful, limited edition of Sleeping Beauties, signed by both Stephen King and Owen King.

    Available now to pre-order, only 250 copies of this gorgeous volume are available worldwide, in an edition that features deluxe binding, slipcase and coloured endpapers.



    Sleeping Beauties is a tale typical of King’s daring. Across the planet, women succumb to a strange, viral slumber, the remaining men turning almost primal in their absence. One woman, however – the mysterious Evie – seems immune, but is she the world’s saviour, or the world’s end?

    Raise a glass, if you will, to one of literature’s true icons, a writer who so often captures the ordinary and drills down to what makes us most genuinely afraid. As Walter Mosley so memorably said, “he knows fear.”

    Happy Birthday, Stephen King.



    With all best wishes,

    Your friends at Waterstones
    "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

    Thanks Simon, you have just contributed to me doing my best to max out my VISA card. But my order went through!
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    Hey, I don't even trust them to deliver to me in the UK. I'm picking mine up from the Store (along with what seems like about a hundred First editions... )

    I just checked and there is a link for questions and feedback to Waterstones. My advice would be for everyone who has ordered this book to use this link and specifically request the book is packaged well, stating the UTD and CTCC problems that have occurred in the past. If they get repeated comments, they might do something about it.

    We cut to a scene where we find Simon driving a large unmarked panel truck. As he passes a pair of Coppers sitting in their vehicle; the rookie turns towards his Sgt. and states, "Hey, Sgt. That large panel truck looks very suspicious". The Sgt. leans forward to look past the young cop and spies Simon in the driver's seat. The Sgt. then tells the rookie, "Not at all. That's just Simon on his way to Waterstones to pick up the latest King book for all those bloody Yanks!" The Sgt. rolls his eyes and whispers under his breath, "Rookies."
