    Default Hope and Miracles: “The Shawshank Redemption” and “The Green Mile”

    Not sure if everyone received this release, but it's impressive not only for the content of two of Stephen King's most beloved film adaptations, but also for the unique idea of seeking feedback as to what the books should be priced at.


    FYI, although King wrote two introductions, unfortunately he will NOT be signing either editions.






    Release:


    Three years in the making, we have an announcement of what will be our highest profile book of 2020.

    In commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of Frank Darabont’s classic film, “The Shawshank Redemption”, as well as the 20th Anniversary of Darabont’s next film, “The Green Mile,” Gauntlet Press is proud to announce the publication of Hope and Miracles: “The Shawshank Redemption” and “The Green Mile” Two Screenplays by Frank Darabont. The book is edited by noted Stephen King authority Tyson Blue.

    Available in both signed limited and traycased lettered editions, Hope and Miracles will include:

    — Frank Darabont’s screenplays for both films
    — A new Introduction by Richard Christian Matheson
    — Introductions to each film by Darabont and Stephen King
    — Behind-the-scenes photographs and storyboards
    — Cast and Crew listings for both films
    — A profile of the late Michael Clarke Duncan
    — Essays on both films by Darabont and Tyson Blue
    — Reflective essays and interviews by noted directors Josh Boone, Mick Garris, Gregory Nicotero and James Cole

    Added to this, Frank Darabont has gone through his personal archives, allowing us to include photographs never before released.

    All editions are signed by Frank Darabont and Tyson Blue. The traycased lettered edition is signed by Frank Darabont, Tyson Blue, Richard Christian Matheson, Josh Boone, Mick Garris, Gregory Nicotero, and James Cole.

    We’re going to continue working on the book into 2020 with the hope of releasing the book in the summer. We’ll update you on additions as we learn about them. We’re going to consult with our traycase maker to come up with something truly unique (the book will be in an 8 x 10 format).

    So, what will you have to shell out for each edition? I’ve consulted with a number of people have received such a wide variety of answers that I thought I'd turn to you, my customers.

    What sounds to you like a fair price to charge for the signed numbered edition? How about for the signed traycased lettered edition?

    Contact me at gauntlet66@aol.com and in the subject mention “Suggested Price of Shawshank Redemption/Long Green Mile.”

    We’ll make a decision and announce it in our last newsletter of the year (two weeks from now). We’ll begin taking orders January 1, 2020.

    Until next time,


    Barry Hoffman
    Publisher, Gauntlet Press

    I seen the release and well I am
    Passing. There is just to much to collect and if not signed by King.... I have to move on. Shelf space is as valuable as real estate in downtown NYC now for Me.

    Suggestions are non-binding, but how often does a publisher release info and seek public input about pricing? Of course, depending on pricing, it seems to be a book that any lover of the two films will want.

    I like this project and will be getting one. I also like that he's asking for input although I don't have enough expertise to even begin to suggest pricing. I just know what I would LIKE to pay. Lol
