    I was fortunate enough to be in the first batch, and picked up a signed copy. I plan to get the full set, and to be buried with them. Dune is my jam, and these editions will be spectacular.

    I think there are a few other contenders for second place. Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot, for example. The latter has been in 16 theatrical release films, for comparison.

    I wonder if King will ever return to the Dark Tower. His interests seemed to have led his writing elsewhere.
