    Gee whiz, me and Stephen were born in the same month!
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    Bev, does this contain more material than the previous release?
    "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

    I'll have more to say about this once it is officially announced but, in brief, yes -- a lot more material.

    I’m very excited about this new companion, and pre-ordered it right away. The previous one has been my constant and much appreciated companion throughout my work on my PhD, I still take it out every couple of days to check things here and there.

    Exciting news Bev. Looking forward to this.
    I've just started reading The Road To The Dark Tower but am pausing until I get around to reading The Gunslinger again before I go too deep.

    I don't know if it's the scan, but the red on black of Bev's name and the subtitle are hard to read....
    But then, I guess that it put the emphasis on King's name, which is likely to be the strategy

    Bev's name is particularly hard to read! Still, it's a nice subtle cover I think.

    IMO, a lighter red would make everything more readable.
    Not only Bev's name, but also the subtitle.
    Couldnt do any harm to have it all more readable.
    But it's maybe just the file

    That's not the final cover.

    I'm still awaiting the green light to make an official announcement.

    It won't have any detachable media like the first edition (paper costs make that prohibitive, apparently).

    It is twice as long as the previous book and covers every one of King's books up to Fairy Tale, not just a select few like the Companion did, although not all in as great a depth. The "form factor" is different (it's about an inch shorter).

    You can see the table of contents here, along with links to pre-order from the various sites. I'm especially pleased that, unlike the SK Illustrated Companion, this is not a B&N exclusive -- it will be available everywhere English is spoken at all bookstores.
