The lettered is sold out except for one copy and the limited was over 50% sold on day one. PLUS......Bill is having 50 extra little mallets made to give away to random customers of the limited!!! How cool is that?!?

I'm paying off my cc after christmas and not spending it unless absolutly necessary to make sure I have the money for The Shining.

Which edition(s) of The Shining is everyone trying for? So far, I think I am just doing the gift edition.

What are the odds that the novella and/or alternate ending will be made available elsewhere?

I will probably go for the Gift Edition.

Probably fairly long that the additional material will be published elsewhere.

I think I'll be getting the Gift as well. Too much for the S/L.

I'd love to get the s/l, especially since my Centipede 'Salem's Lot is one of my proudest purchases, but the money just ain't there. I think I'll be lucky to get the gift.

That's why I am considering the limited...I have Salem's Lot and this IS such a classic work of his, like Salem's Lot is.....plus if anyone does a limited of Doctor Sleep, I would rather have both titles if I can afford them at the time.

I will be getting the limited gift edition unless I sell enough stuff on ebay and The small presses stop having such great sales.They use paypal so I am not spending any
money and kind of went a little crazy.Hope it is out of my system now.

Unless my car purchase and the pre-order of The Shining happen at the same time, I will absolutly be getting the S/L and it will be my first.

I'll try the s/l too if I manage to sell a couple of PCs (computers, not publisher copies...) on ebay. Unfortunately it seems that no one has money to spend in this period (exept for those with a lot of money...)

I like the bottom half. The top half not as much, I am glad I ordered it though. I think the story will be great!!

I like the limited cover. It is fun, and I expect that the book will be fun too. I'd love to own a limited, but I'll have to stick with the good ol' trade.

Besides the fact that this is a Joe Hill book, the cover is what pushed me over the edge to buy it. I love the art! Also purchased the CD, 12 arcs. I have purposely stayed away from here. Playing in this neighborhood was like a compulsive gambler going to the track and not betting. I wanted every single book I heard about or saw in someone's thread. Gorgeous, gorgeous books....

It sort of worked. A little bit. Mostly.

Great story, read it last year, but i passed on the limited, i don't think the S/N is priced too bad but i'm not a fan of the artist and really don't like the cover

bsaenz24

I haven't seen the artist's other work besides the Locke/Key comin which I do like, but it "is" comic book art. A different style. And as the cover for NOS4A2 seems to fit with the comic style, at least to me, I am not overly hopeful for the art in the book, but who knows. The other concer is that he is now the artist for The Shining too..........hhmmmmmm....

Tito_Villa
01-14-2013, 02:42 PM
Don't get me wrong i think he's great at comic art, but that style, for me after reading the book, doesn't fit this story, and i'm really disappointed that he's illustrating The Shining, for the money they are planning to charge i think they could have got a top artist! It's the 1st King S/L that i won't be going for, not even a gift edition.

Personally, I don't see a comic book style of art working for most any "serious" story in a signed/limited. I know Locke/Key was serious in tone, but for some weird reason, to me anyway, art that works for a serious comic rarely seems appropriate to a serious novel. Not sure why.

Dan Hocker

Not all comic artists do all of their work the same way. Just look at the artwork Troy Nixey did for The Strain. He's a comic artist and his artwork in the strain looked nothing like comic art.

True. I do love the work for The Strain.

I agree, don't like this comic style are for these novels, including the stuff for Stephen King books. I have a strong dislike for the limited cover of King's TWTTK. I don't mind that kind of art for comic/graphic novel, but for an actual novel it just doesn't do it for me.

The cover for this makes it seem like this isn't going to be a serious novel at all. It wouldn't seem so much like that without the moon part of the cover. I plan on getting the trade edition of this, but not interested in finding the limited edition on the secondary market.

Ya never know RJK you may read it and find the cover fits perfectly. Me I really have no opinion on it. You can't have a perfect cover every time. I mean I know we've had some covers that I really didn't like at all. On a side note though I actually didn't have a problem with the artwork for TWTTKH, the only thing I didn't really like about that one was the cover design (as in title and author layout).

Tito_Villa
01-15-2013, 09:06 PM
Yeah i liked the cover for TWTTK but the layout was rubbish, the cover for NOS4A2 though just doesn't fit the story though imo, this story is gritty and that cover is childish
