    My thoughts exactly. I'm generally not one to clamor for a new DT book, but I've always thought the breakers were relatively under-explored, so this could be a good thing indeed.

    It seems PS Publishing will (or plans to) release its version of The Dead Zone this year as well, after The Stand. It will be illustrated by Tomislav Tikulin.

    Now where is Needful Things?

    IDK, still sounds better than "Sleeping Beauties"!!!! I kinda like the comparison to Firestarter. Could be a really good one on the face of it.

    I'm not a fan of the font they use for the author name, feels very generic, and the font used for the title isn't good either. Yes, I'm a font person...

    Both covers have a generic YA feel to them.

    Fonts are important; I'm with you there.

    I agree that the one for his name is pretty generic (not to mention huge, but I guess that's a requirement when selling a book by STEPHEN KING). I like the font used for the title though; it feels cozy, in the sense of being taken away by the story.

    I also prefer the UK edition's image (overhead "shot" of a rowboat) to that of the US edition; I find it more evocative than the US cover, but then, I can't deny that a train with that interior is evocative as well.

    I don't understand why there can't just be one cover.

    I always thought that if I were a published author, if I liked the cover the US edition ended up with, I would consider it "the" cover and would forever be irritated by the existence of others (but those are some significant ifs in that sentence).

    I generally prefer the U.K. Covers. This one is a bit blah, though. I'm sure the w h smith edition will be a nice shade of purple, though.

    I agree about the fonts - particularly the title font. The author font is generic, but better that than the hideous font they used in the U.K. Between Cell and Just After Sunset. It made his work look like cheap schlock.

    You can probably thank your local sports team for this. All teams need are a home jersey and an away jersey...but damn if their “alternate third jerseys” that are for sale haven’t been major sources of revenue since the 90s

    Earlier there was only the ebook page, but not there seems to be the hardcover page too.

    And Hodder has sent a press release about it as well :
    Deep in the woods of Maine, there is a dark state facility where kids, abducted from across the United States, are incarcerated. In the Institute they are subjected to a series of tests and procedures meant to combine their exceptional gifts – telepathy, telekinesis – for concentrated effect.

    Luke Ellis is the latest recruit. He’s just a regular 12-year-old, except he’s not just smart, he’s super-smart. And he has another gift which the Institute wants to use...

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

    Back in the Institute’s downtrodden playground and corridors where posters advertise ‘just another day in paradise’, Luke, his friend Kalisha and the other kids are in no doubt that they are prisoners, not guests. And there is no hope of escape.

    But great events can turn on small hinges and Luke is about to team up with a new, even younger recruit, Avery Dixon, whose ability to read minds is off the scale. While the Institute may want to harness their powers for covert ends, the combined intelligence of Luke and Avery is beyond anything that even those who run the experiments – even the merciless Mrs Sigsby – suspect.

    Thrilling, suspenseful, heart-breaking, The Institute is a stunning novel of childhood betrayed and hope regained.

    King’s UK editor, Philippa Pride said: ‘As soon as I met Luke and the other characters in this book, I knew I would root for them throughout Stephen King’s exciting new novel The Institute, which I believe is going to be the biggest fiction title of Autumn 2019. It has the suspense of The Outsider and the wonderful childhood camaraderie and immersive nostalgia which Steve captures so beautifully in his stories such as It and The Body (adapted into the film Stand By Me). His Constant Fan will be thrilled, while new readers are guaranteed to discover him with this wonderfully resonant novel.’

    The NBA in particular is home to some of the most nightmarish (Minnesota's highlighter-green) and coolest (any of the single-color Christmas day ones) uniforms out there.

    "Throttle" and "In the tall grass" will be reprinted in Joe Hill's next collection 'Full Throttle" to be release in october.

    The amazon UK page ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/Full-Thrott...dp/1473219892/ ) is interesting for this upcoming book because it says :
    "Eleven short stories from award-winning author Joe Hill, building on the success of his blockbuster novels. Some new, some previously published, all terrifying.
    Includes FULL THROTTLE and IN THE TALL GRASS, both collaborations with Stephen King and both being filmed at the time of writing."

    So :
    - "Throttle" seems to have been renamed in "Full throttle" for the collection, giving its title to the book
    - "Throttle" is ALSO being turned into a movie? That's the first time I hear about that

    And as I always thought, I am guessing that the "In the tall grass" movie by Vincenzo Natali will be released at the automn on netflix, probably by the release of the book... before halloween?

    In 2018 Nick Wechsler bought rights to "Throttle" but that's all there is about it.
    And yes, Hill's book is set to autumn premiere to be supported by the movie and movie by the book.
