I've ordered all the PS SK books so far, so went ahead and ordered this one too :)

I was really hoping that this newsletter would have the official announcement for the new edition of Joe Hill's 20th Century Ghosts. BUT I'm glad it didn't because I don't have the cash for something I expect to have a nice big price tag on it.

As soon as I get paid (Friday Friday Friday) I'll be picking up Skeleton Crew since I've picked up all of the others. I'm just disappointed that I've never received the same number on any of my PS books even though I should have. Not that it makes a huge difference, it's just the idea of having a matching set.

It pays to ask for the same number, TacomaDriver. Although, this is what Pete says in the last (today's) PS newsletter:

A final word about numbers . . .

We (that’s ‘me’ folks) managed to screw up the numbers we provide to our chums in specialist bookstores and online sites—not to mention a few of our regular direct sale customers—and, understandably, one or two of you got a little miffed. Heck, anybody would. But this time we’re making sure we get it right. Thus, whatever number you received on the last title (that’s THINNER only and not necessarily CARRIE: take note) you can get exactly the same one on SKELETON CREW—but you MUST buy your copy of SKELETON CREW from the same place you bought THINNER, cos those outfits are gonna be getting exactly the same numbers. That make sense?

I'll order mine after having received my upcoming paycheck.

I'll be asking for Thinner's number this time and see what happens. Worst case is that I will end up with a whole set of PS's anniversary books with all unique numbers! (It's all about the spin, right?)

Mine are all different numbers too, but I don't really care at this point. It's nice just to have the books.

My numbers have been all the same. But I have been ordering from Cemetery Dance. When they offer this one I will order it again. After that I am not sure about ordering the next one. As I think the Cemetery Dance version of Night Shift will be plenty.

Different numbers for all the volumes. But this is the last of their planned 5 anniversary editions. Wonder if they are working on more?

If you've been ordering from us, we've been doing our best to make sure anyone who ordered the previous one get's that number for the next one.

That's my fault for not ordering from CD, but I won't let the lack of the same numbering bother me too much.

I was really on the fence on this one. I am hoping a CD viking years collection will follow the Doubleday years collection and I would greatly prefer a Cemetery Dance reprint over a Postscipts reprint. However I am assuming that that will be at least two years out to allow for the Doubleday books to be completed, and I really want a nice version of Skeleton Crew. I also assume that the PS editions will be long sold out by then. I jumped off the fence today and used my May coupon code for this one.

They mentioned the Book Night Shift in the newsletter so I think maybe they are doing more.Me after I order my copy of Skeleton Crew that's enough.

'Salem's Lot too.

After looking at CD's Carrie, and the art that's been posted for 'Salem's Lot, I just can't imagine anyone doing a better job than CD.

There's no chance. I still want it though.

That's for sure. The CD books are just on another level, but then, they do cost more too. I figure I started buying the PS editions, so I might as well get all of them now.

Do they cost more? Carrie didn't. I guess the other's probably will, but the price difference is pretty insignificant compared to the quality different. Also PS lettered editions are an extortionate price, with or without King's signature. It's actually embarrassing. I like some of the books they make, but I'm starting to get pretty tired of their business model.

I'm ordering the CD Artist editions, so for me, they are at least double the price. But, as you say, the CD editions are worth it.

Ordered this a couple days ago. Like the cover. Having a matching set of all five will be nice. I am not getting the next 2 that were announced . Maybe if something else comes along. Would love to see a gift edition from PS or Cemetery Dance for the novella collections. Four Past Midnight and Different Seasons.

Yeah that would be cool. I'll grab Salem's Lot, but skip Night Shift. CD's copy will be fine. Ordered Skeleton Crew today, unable to match my Pet Sematary # unfortunately. Also pretty disappointed about missing out on The Revelations of 'Becka Paulson and the storyboards. Makes me wonder if I should hold off altogether and splurge on the Scream Press edition, at least then I get a King sig, an oversized edition and the full story collection.

PS Publishing received quite a few complaints from people who hated it. Most likely there will be a different cover.
Personally, I loved it.

I felt the art to be a little more lighthearted than I would've expected, probably due to colors because the images themselves are still rather scary. But I'm content to leave the aesthetics in the hands of the experts. I didn't mind the crowding that everyone was complaining about. In fact, that same cover in a shaded black and white could be especially striking.

Today I received Skeleton Crew from PS Publishing (Purchased through Cemetery Dance). This is the first of the King reprints I have purchased from PS. With many of the same titles coming out from CD I am someone who prefers the CD books. The smaller format, bright white paper-stock just productions in general I prefer CD's books. I generally by from PS when I like item is not available. I have several Joe Hill books from PS and am glad to have then in my collection. They just don't generate the same emotions for me. Skeleton Crew clearly feels like our friends at PS has stepped up their game. This is a book to be proud of. I hope the 20th Centuries Ghost Anniversary edition is given the same treatment. If it does I will be clearly looking at purchising more PS titles. Greate job Pete Nikki and everyone involved!

I agree, Martin. I just dislike the slipcase art. Thinking I'm probably in the minority there though.

I understand where you are coming from on the DJ art. I think it is appropriate for the book but it almost feels childish.

Yea, maybe that's it on the SC case. Oh well. Onward and upward. I did take a look at 20th Century Ghosts [1oth Anniversary Slipcased Edition] and it looks really nice. More than I'm willing to pay for it I think unless CD grabs a copy or two for CDCC members. Really like that artwork for the unsigneds and the price isn't bad so I'm seriously thinking about picking those up.
