    Default Foreign Stephen King Editions

    Hello People.

    The idea is to post here some curious foreign editions. In my case (I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina) I'll post some local editions that worth to be here.

    First:

    1st Spanish Ed. of Insomnia.
    The DJ glows in the dark:




    The very first spanish edition of The Stand, splitted in two volumes. Since the publisher went out of bussiness in 1982, this edition is very hard to find nowadays.




    The dutch edition of Dolan's Cadillac. I really like the cover




    And almost all the printed editions of Riding the bullet.
    From left to right, from top to bottom:

    Japanesse 2nd HC edition, Japanesse 1st Limited HC edition, german SC edition, spanish SC edition.
    Dutch HC edition, Italian SC edition (comes in a Dvd box with a CD), French SC first edition, Spanish HC edition, Italian Dvd box for the book and the cd.

    Wanted list:
    The girl who loved tom gordon ARC with King's letter
    The Plant #3 Unsigned.

    The Hungarian editions are horrible. But I will send a pic of them with pleasure.

    For a site that lists a couple thousand various King titles, both US and foreign:

    Stephen King Book Covers

    Unfortunately, these are just thumbnails, and cannot be enlarged. (Just think of how much bandwidth THAT would take!)

    Yes, it was. The bad thing about them being listed seperately is I won volumes 2 & 3 and someone else bought one out from under me. I can be pretty sure it will be a long time before I find volume one if I ever do.

    I would guess France. It seems to be the only one in which Gerald's Game was called Jesse.

    It is the french Gerald's Game.

    Oh, and do you need to know where to order the Korean version of Riding The Bullet for US $10.00 + shipping?

    It should be about five dollars a book shipped anywhere in the states. If you decide to order any of the multi volume sets though bear in mind that shipping is per volume.

    Thanks, Herbert! I love the muralistic look of those books (particularly "The Stand" and "It"). I'd forgotten Tommyknockers had one, too.

    the pocket editions that are really nice, were done by the end of 80's/ beginning of 90's if i remember well.. all by the same artist: impressive, right?
    the stand is absolutely AWSOME! Imagine it as a painting!
    If only the upcoming comic could be as great!

    it decided me to go through the covers of those pockets, and see if others are worth being seen by you...
    some are:

    NIGHTMARES & DREAMSCAPES


    NEEDFUL THINGS


    REGULATORS/ DESPERATION


    FOUR PAST MIDNIGHT




    Note: the covers of some editions should be going well each other.. as i am getting the pictures on misc websites, they must come from different printings and may do not going continue perfectly each other...
