If I am remembering correctly by paying for the full set up front each book had the same retail as Carrie. I think by the time all is delivered I will have achieved some good savings. Better yet I do not have to worry about getting in when the next book is announced.
    That's what I did as well. Don't regret it at all. You're right about the savings. It's going to be probably a couple hundred dollars at least.

    I have been pretty happy with the PS books I have purchased. My sole issue was with the Esselmont Malazan Empire books, once you wrapped them with a Brodart cover, you had to wrestle them in and out of the slipcases. The only King I ordered from them was Salems Lot, mostly because it is my favorite King book, but also the idea of breaking the book into three separate volumes intrigued me. I thought hey did a good job with it. I have ordered a few interesting titles from them lately, I have a copy of Gaslight, Ghosts & Ghouls: A Centenary Celebration R. Chetwynd-Hayes on the way from Camelot. Another book of theirs I really liked was the Charles grant Collection, Scream Quietly - A Collection of Charles L. Grant. Speaking of Grant, I'm very excited that Centipede Press is going to come out a collection of his work at some point. Have a great weekend and don't cough on anybody!!

    I just would like a nice deluxe copy of each of the classic King novels, of which, to my mind, CHRISTINE is one. I guess CHRISTINE joins FIRESTARTER (Phantasia Press) as ones I’ll likely never have.

I really regret passing on the PS edition, given that I’ll never opt for the (much more expensive) Grant volume. I really screwed up on that one.
    Skeleton Crew was the only PS edition I have ordered. Just do not care for their books that much. I have had small pangs of regret over not getting The Stand but the retail was more than I felt it was worth so I am satisfied with my decision.

    Hi Jerry. I expect The Stand won't be officially announced to the general public until after Night Shift is published later this year, as that's how we've typically done it in the past. As far as the production schedule goes with that, I'm not 100% sure on where it falls in line, but because of the delays on Night Shift it is much further along in the process than the next book in line would typically be at this point.
    Thanks Dan! I'll keep an eye out!

    I'm sure we'll have some extra gift editions once it's out.

    Of all the amazing authors we publish, there's one in particular who is tough on our proofreaders because they get caught-up in, and carried away by, his storytelling... This book is going to prove to be a challenge for them, me thinks:
