    I agree that not all in the uncut version is needed to advance the story. I do feel that the flow of the uncut story is better which is why I prefer it.,

    I have heard several authors, Mr. King included, praise their editors. I really believe, with no basis in fact, that being edited because the printer can't handle the length is an issue.

    So now that CD is closing in on the 2/3 point of The Doubleday Years set this would be a good time to announce The Viking Years. Of course this a much larger effort so you should probably plan for 3 releases a year.

    Many share your view, King does not. I believe the cuts were done for multiple reasons. I assume all King books are subject to editing cuts. No inside knowledge but I would not be surprised if King was upset with being told to edit out a certain number of pages because they did not have the ability to print a book that large. That feels very different than cutting useless story lines.

    From my understanding, he wasn't happy with all the cuts from the original. Hence the uncut edition that came to be.

    I would assume the original, rather than the 90’s expanded version, which would be my preference, but I don’t recall it being officially announced one way or the other.

    It's the 1990 version, not the original.

    Fiction. Ned Dameron has a dozen pieces of color artwork in the book.

    I love these editions. I wish I hopped on at first, though. I'm filling in my collection as we speak. They are beautiful books. =)
