    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.

    Another SCore for SC.

    From the "alternate description" CD sent out.

    ..."Far away in a small town in South Carolina, former cop Tim Jamieson has taken a job working for the local Sheriff. He's basically just walking the beat. But hes about to take on the biggest case of his career."...

    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.
