    Meh. I already own the far superior Suntup edition and have absolutely zero interest in this version. It looks like it was designed by a kid!

    a sense of infinite peace and protection in the glittering hosts of heaven."

    I bought an unsigned one.
    My other MISERY wants some company.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    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.

    One thing I didn't find is the release date? Does anyone know if these are ready to go or being distributed later in the summer?

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

    I for one am very grateful that Rebecca has insomnia!
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Without a signature, this is completely unimpressive. I think the cover is awful and the illustrations are tepid. And I like their edition of The Shining. I keep almost buying it. Though if someone wants to send me a free copy of Misery I wouldn't be furious. But I was bummed when I saw the product page. No one likes to be underwhelmed.

    Missed out on the signed. Bought the unsigned to go with my copy of The Shining. It doesn't blow me away but it does look to be a nice edition for the bookshelf.

    All of these onsales are turning into shit shows. Plus you have the exponentially increasing reach of Facebook responsible for adding MANY new collectors to the buying pool. it is NEVER going to be easy in the future to get a signed copy. Those days are gone. If you are not on your game you will not be getting one.
