    Not sure SK would dip into the YA market with a 576 page debut.

    Not a fan of the cover. It has a mass market, best seller feel. Which, of course, it is but doesn't make much of an impression.

    Uk cover:



    And...
    "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

    The cover looks too comic book-y for me.

    UK cover looks like a vagina/Fallopian tube/ovary combo.

    Yeah, I think the U.K cover wins over the American cover, but I'm probably gonna still get the American.

    Speaking of which, has anyone heard any info regarding a WH Smith edition as yet? I have grown somewhat fond of these editions.

    Nothing yet, but we usually don't see anything on the WHSmith site this early. I fully expect there to be one, though.

    ETA: Meanwhile, I offer you this poor excuse of a fake cover as a teaser.
