    Was this book really sold for 95 cents?

    I had been under the impression that it was a freebie that was given away with the WG chapbook when you bought Desperation and The Regulators.

    no this is the only chapbook that came with Desperation/The Regulators.


    and were given away after they ran out of the FREE "Keep-You-UP-All-Night" LIGHT.

    I assume you mean it was released this way in the UK....was it released in a similar fashion (box set) in the US....or was it truly sold individually for 95 cents?

    I remember buying mine individually. I can't remember where I bought it though. It was the US edition.

    Yes, it really was sold for 95 cents. It was part of the Penguin 60s promo. There was also The Blue Rose by Peter Straub. The books were in a big display rack, and you could buy any of the individual booklets for less than a buck. Another of the 60s was Bartleby the Scrivener, which influenced both King and Straub in subsequent writing (Bag of Bones and "Mr. Clubb and Mr. Cuff" respectively).
