    Spoiler!



    But seriously, The Gift Edition of 'Salem's Lot is incredibly beautiful. The AE looks spectacular! Cemetery Dance nailed it.

    Regarding Mr. Freeman's writing I would completely agree as well. I always feel a connection to the characters in his stories. I like all his work but to for someone getting started I would recommend 'The Painted Darkness' or 'Weak and Wounded'!
    I'll 2nd that, Martin on BJF's titles. The Painted Darkness was my first read.

    As far as your comment, St. Troy. I guess it could have been perceived as snarky but I personally didn't take it that way and actually learned something from it. And yes, Brian is the best. I've seen much worse comments hurled his way on a different forum and he always answers with dignity and grace. I'd guess that's just one of the many reasons he holds the position that he does. Dude's a pretty damn good writer too if you've never read him . My wife calls me fanboy in regards to him so I'm probably on the bias side.

    Are these photos any different from the 9th and 10th ones down (if I'm counting correctly) on the "Photos" tab of http://www.cemeterydance.com/page/CDP/PROD/king10? I'm not trying to be a d!ck; just curious if I'm missing what's actually new about these particular photos.

    I think we're still waiting to see what the lettered edition looks like, and since photos are the closest I'll come to that, I can't wait to see those as well.

    I did? By openly saying I wasn't trying to be a dick I was emphasizing that the ignorance was mine and not Brian's.

    It was a simple question (based, like all questions, on the fact that the one asking lacked some knowledge) with a simple answer. Brian didn't take offense; I think he got this. Take a second read of my message and perhaps you'll agree.

    The one photo there on the page is of the book's binding, the photo above is of the traycase. But it's the same material, so they look a lot alike.
