Just got one myself. I wonder how much the shipping will be.

Too late for the lettered, too late for the numbered - just got myself a regular HC edition.
Terribly high shipping costs: 18 GBP! That's 47.99 GBP for a rather slight edition...
Oh wel....

I do believe the limited editions come with a tip-sheet.

I just bought the S/L edition, too late for the Lettered. I bet this is CD's announcement tomorrow at 11 - there will probably be copies available here.

I don't think Brian gets THAT excited announcing another publisher's book, but then who knows with those "publisher types"!! ;) I am guessing it is a CD title that will be announced.

Brian also said that it was not a copy of Joyland that was coming out. I missed the signed but might go for the hard cover after tomorrow. I also signed up to be notified if copies come up.

It'll make a nice companion piece to my lettered Number 121! I can start a new shelf! "Books I stole from Campmeister Tom!"

SK collector posted this:

UPDATE: If you change the website's region from UK to USA you may still be able to order a copy of the S/L!! - Go to their main site and change the region in the upper right corner.

I was able to order a s/l (I think--they did not send an order confirmation), and they are still showing the signed and regular limiteds as available.

I switched the location and ordered the S/L Got an email stating "Your order has been received and processed" Hard to believe a signed and numbered copy for that price, nice!!

Too late for me, I guess it might be for the best otherwise I probably couldn't afford the mystery release tomorrow.

Thats a really odd website for ordering- the 80's lady with big hair and a corded phone? not a website I felt safe ordering from...but I did! lol. "The Clear Choice For All Your Magazine's Subscription Needs"
Wonder how the other site sold out and this one still has?

I ordered this as well. My confirmation came a day or two later after my CC was charged but went into my junk. I happened to be checking my junk for a response from a landlord(no one seems to want to rent to us) and found it there. was very relieved and then cancelled my order for the trade hardcover. I was also excited about the shipping price as I got international shipping for $13

That's a great shipping price. Maybe we should move Dan and Dave to the UK and start printing/warehousing over there! :)

Titan Books has more copies of the unsigned Standard Limited Edition for sale

Prob due to people like myself who had ordered it because the signed edition was sold out and then found out you could still get them from another site and cancelled the order.

I got an email from Forbidden Planet saying my card was about to be charged and that the total altogether for the signed limited is $121.82, still not bad for a signed King Limited!

Got mine today! #87. With a little help from this forum and SK Collector I scored a signed King limited for 79.00 bucks. I can't stop smiling.:)

Had Number 484 of the limited edition waiting on my doorstep when I got home tonight. I am very pleased with the production quality of this book. The art matches the story very well also. I will try to get some pictures up in my collection thread tomorrow.

Copy 109 came while I was out yesterday. Took longer to open then it will to read. Very well packed book. I never received an email and was wondering if my order went through. Nice to see that it did. Pics real soon.

Received a copy (#519) through a secondary source, higher cost than at issue but still good to add to the collection.

I am pretty sure that the e-mails were sent in error. THe lettered editions shipped around the same time as the limited and the e-mail I received said the limited was available to order.
