    Oh Dear God. Just how many editions does one title need???
    "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

    I hope so, I had wonderful luck with that one... What are the odds the pricing is as reasonable as last time? I doubt it personally.

    I get what they’re going for but the cheesecake covers for these are kind of embarrassing. Like the Joyland illustrated cover has the naked woman with a towel covering herself holding the rifle. (Although this is mild compared to that.)

    Aren't they based on an old line of books like that? I thought I heard something like that, but I forget the details.

    Yes, they are deliberately retro, recalling the "racy" pulp covers of yesteryear. I like them, even as I roll my eyes.

    If this were a hardcover like Joyland Illustrated, I'd definitely pick up a copy. But as a PB, I'm less inclined.

    Perfectly happy with the hardcover edition from a while back. No need for another.

    Given that I have not bought TCK yet, how do all of you (who don't have much enthusiasm for this new edition) think this edition stacks up for me to go with? Keep in mind, I'm not looking for anything truly collectible etc.

    If you want a book that won't appreciate in value and you also happen to like the illustrations then go for it.

    I'm told by editor/publisher Charles Ardai that a limited is not planned, there also will not be any advance proofs produced for those looking for that.
