I haven't seen anything on PS's site yet, sp has preorders up on their site. Each is priced at $99.00. Christine is scheduled for an April release and Pet Semetary for an October release (where I got that, I don't recall). Both will have fascimile King signatures.

We're limited to so few copies that we'll probably only be able to sell them to the CDCC. I'm trying to get us more copies, though. We'll let you know as soon as we know!

I want both, but one is going to have to wait until the end of this month. I just need help deciding which one to preorder now. Suggestions, anyone? :confused:

I think Pet Semetary is one of his best / scariest novels period. I always thought Christine was a little drier / slower of a read.

I was thinking of Pet Semetary, but wasn't sure. I hate even having to make the choice, but this has been a very expensive 2 weeks for me. I am almost completely tapped out. :p

I'm leaning toward Christine, simply because I think Dennis Guilder is one of King's best chracters of his early novels.

PS Publishing has both still available. Based on the price I am passing for now.

I said what the hell, and just ordered both from PS - they have them up on their site now. http://www.pspublishing.co.uk//christine-30th-anniversary-edition-by-stephen-king-1712-p.asp and http://www.pspublishing.co.uk//pet-sematary-30th-anniversary-edition-by-stephen-king-1713-p.asp

I'll be passing on both. On the PS site, they have Pet Semetery scheduled for November 2014. There's no way I'm paying that much money for a book I'd have to wait almost 2 years for. What a shame. :(

Both have smaller print runs than I expected at 750 each but I am still passing.

I ordered both from PS Pub. They are only 94.37 with 7.85 shipping per book and that would be less expesive from either CD, Camelot, or sp (assuming CD will offer them at 99.00 as well--and that the CDCC won't have a discount, I guess).

Still trying to decide on these. I haven't purchased a book from PS before. Anybody have any comments regarding the quality of their books? Aside from the Anniversary King books, the prices for their s/l editions seem rather cheap compared to other companies. Any feedback?

The quality of their books is good. Some interesting reads also. In my last post in this thread it should have read that I read on another site that they might up the print run. Not what ever that thing I typed is. I still prefer typing on a keyboard.Damon these touch screens.

We're getting too few copies of these titles to send any kind of note out because our copies would be gone in a matter of minutes before the note even finished sending -- even if we just emailed the CDCC. If you want to order one of these from us, just email Mindy at order@cemeterydance.com with the appropriate book title in the subject line (or both if you'd like both) and she will help you out! We're sorry we couldn't get more, but we definitely understand where PS Publishing is coming from -- they have a lot of customers of their own to take care of first!

I tried refreshing the page, deleting my cookies, using another web browser, all to no avail. Anyone encounter this problem? Thanks in advance.

Hi. Since the publication date for Pet Sematary is ways away in November and the good folks at PS Pub haven't determined which artists to be commissioned for this project as opposed to Christine (which will be out in April), if would be safe to assume there is still no artwork yet for Pet Sem.

It is a great idea by PS to publish both anniversary editions close to the original publication date back in 1983. Of course, using SK's facsimile signature instead of having signature sheets for SK himself to sign speeds things up considerably.

They could just do away with the SK facsimile signature altogether imho. Just having the artists' signatures are good enough.

According to skcollector.com, Easton Press bought the rights to publish The Dead Zone. Does that mean they have the exclusive rights or can other houses print limiteds of the novel? I'd like a nice anniversary version of Misery in a few years. Maybe bound in simulated human skin? :rolleyes: I miss Annie.

Limited Edition rights revert after a certain period of time or after the edition has gone Out of Print, whichever is first (and depending on the contract since all contracts are a little different).
