    More King-related Folio Society "news" that isn't truly news and is even more uncertain than my previous posts about The Stand (which was not to be, at least not yet) and Misery (which was to be): FS...

    Ben, are you the one (as I think I recall) with a single copy of Second Coming with the black and white photos? (That's the book I fantasize about having in a mind-blowing custom binding).

    DR's raw materials, rather than ordinary pieces of canvas or paper, are pre-existing works whose physical form differentiates them from other instances of the same intellectual content before DR ever...

    If anyone who missed out on FS' The Shining would like to get one, a user named Tom6712 on Library Thing is (or was, 4 1/2 hours ago) looking to sell his copy "reasonably." I'm not sure precisely...

    I just did - I expressed my amusement at the utter predictability of your knee-jerk left-wing response to Merlin.



    Thank you for providing an additional laugh. Would you talk to me this way if...

    I believe it's literally the same product with a bookplate added to it.

    Sometimes, when I see a King special edition (such as both of FS' King offerings) that is "tepid" (good word, jeffingoff), I weep softly for the Centipede Press The Shining that never was.

    We don't know that because DR's only "treatment," thus far, for non-first editions has been to ignore them outright (this is why the question I answered - "why the need for a first edition?" - was...

    "Editorial" is a great way to describe them; they have a clinical feel.

    While I didn't love the FS The Shining cover, I'll at least say it shows that it was designed with input from someone who...

    FS states no limitations except for their designated "limited editions," of which Misery is not one (although theoretically, there is a limitation, as they print what they print and wait before...

    I find it interesting that you like FS' The Shining but found their Misery's illustrations tepid - because I found the FS' The Shining's illustrations e x t r e m e l y tepid indeed - you didn't?

    The insistence on first editions may be a fine-tuning of the notion that the book (not just the work itself, but the physical edition in question) should warrant the full Dragon rebinding treatment...

    Given that I don't see anything to the contrary, it's probably ready to go now (that's usually how they do things).

    Hey, what do you know!

    ...They used Kinsella again (who did the limp artwork for FS' The Shining); I suppose his style is a better fit for Misery.
