I would love to order the slipcase, Dan, but not the books.
Is this a possibility?

Why are they reprinting these? Grant still hasn't been able to sell out the limited edition from several years ago.

It might be when all is said and done. For now we're just selling the sets though to avoid the confusion that comes with selling the items individually.

I would say Scribner are re-releasing the hardcovers because there is probably a demand for hardcovers at the lower price point. Plus they'd end up in the book stores where the $150 Grant editions probably aren't.

I want the grant but can't afford it. Can't afford this one either though. Very tempting but I also thing the shining set through overlook is even more tempting and I have not sprung for that either.

Well I sprung for this.I have been on the fence with the Grant edition and since I am only using my savings cert.for now I thought I would go for it.I did like both of these stories with Talisman being in my top 5.

I wasn't a huge fan of talisman. It started to slow for me...haven't read black house yet because I think it'll start slow too.

I liked wolf too.I think SK should write a book with Wolf and Tom Cullen as the main characters.Those are 2 of my favorite characters he has written.

Black House starts a lot slower than The Talisman. Most people hate this BH opening, blaming Straub. I'm sure Straub did write it, but I think he did an amazing job: I love the opening of BH.
Go read it, Teri - it's completely different from The Talisman.

I will be reading it. I have so many still left to read though so it's hard to choose. Carrie is next as you all know since you guys decided it. Then I am going to work on the ones I know have movie Remakes or new movies coming out or rumored. So IT and 11/22/63 most likely.

I did not like The Talisman much at all. However, Black House is top-of-the-line King. Great story. So be sure and give it a shot!

I ordered this set. I've never gotten around to ordering the Grant set and only have The Talisman in paperback, so why not?

I have first prints of both trades of these books and while I liked the The Talisman, I thought Black House was one of his least successful books. I don't see the need to get these.......Yet.

Seip

It's funny (to this Dutchman at least) how the ie/ei combination causes (some) a lot of problems in the English language.
It's Siep.
To be pronounced as?? Someone once pronounced my name as having two syllables: Si-ep (sy-app).
Not.
It's Seep, but with a short ee-sound.

(not important at all, guys, just thought I'd mention it..)

I would say Scribner are re-releasing the hardcovers because there is probably a demand for hardcovers at the lower price point. Plus they'd end up in the book stores where the $150 Grant editions probably aren't.

If you buy the artist edition of DT VII along with the T/BH set, it's like getting the T/BH set for only $100. ;)

Still, if DMG hasn't been able to sell 3500 sets in almost 10 years, I'm questioning the demand of a new hardcover edition, even though it will be cheaper. If they want to reach the masses at an inexpensive pricepoint, they should do it in paperback.

Kind of like how they re-released On Writing when the original was actually selling in the dollar store. I don't get it.

But maybe this will somehow increase demand for the Grant set, and it will end up being worth something...

I think they're doing a paperback as well, or at least you can pre-order a paperback on amazon.

Can you or anyone who ordered one post some photo's and the full details. The page is not up anymore...usually just says told out but its gone altogether. If I recall I may have not ordered it because there was nothing special about them not because of the money but I am not sure, I can even remember who published them and google keeps bringing up the DMG limited.

I have the set but probably will not be able to get pictures up until this weekend. They are trade editions published by Scribner. Nothing special about the books. They do have a very low print run for trade editions though and the Slipcase CD added is real nice.

After seeing the books in the store today I decided against it because theres nothing special about them they're just like any trade edition. Thought they would be nice books or have art or something but nothing. CD shoulda done them then they might be worth it. I'm just the slipcase and poster are really nice but I have enough art already and no where to hang em. Still debating on the poster tho...depends on the price i guess and if its signed by tomislav

Martin
06-06-2013, 04:01 AM
I can't argue with your decision. They are basic trade editions, reprints at that. I probably would not have gone for them if it wasn't for the CD slipcase and a nice sale. That said I am happy to have them in collection.

They do have very cool artwork for the covers and I got mine because I had given away both of those titles as gifts over the years, not too mention the really cool slipcase and poster AND I had an $80 coupon alongside the renewable gift certificate, I got all that for less than five dollars, not including shipping, pretty sweet deal :cool:

I say get the cheap frames from Target, Walmart, etc... and knock some out. I like them and have used a few. Most of my stuff, actually last night, made the transition from tubes/a record store art box to a 70gal flatish under bed rubbermaid. I was able to lay a lot of the stuff out flat. Plus it was cool seeing what all I had and forgot about.

If you need a replacement let me know. The posters where shipped poorly to us and some of the lesser quality ones slipped through. If it had been damaged being put into a tube an entire side of the poster would be damaged and not just a corner.

Hey Dan, a replacement would be great! I thought it would be a bit late to say anything now, considering how long I've had it, but it's definitely one of the damaged ones. It's bent and creased near the bottom left corner.
