    Yep, I think it was 100% the need to cut so many pages simply because of pricing/printing concerns. Bev Vincent has written a great (unannounced) essay all about this, which will appear at the end of our special edition of THE STAND.

      They've barely managed three in a decade, let's not get ahead of ourselves here

        Hey, despite CD's problems thus far with the DD Years- and, sincerely hoping that those problems are in the past- I am ALL for the Viking Years. The books are great, and I'm glad to have them. Just would like one every six months. Surely we can manage that now that the printer is sorted, no?

          Their shortest gap between Doubleday titles was twelve or so months between 'Salem's Lot and The Shining, which predated both their initial printer issues and the supply chain issues caused by the pandemic. King titles are also incredibly large undertakings for CD and their subs, even in the absolute best circumstances. For them to do two King books a year would likely mean they'd have to give up publishing anything else until a hypothetical Viking Years set was completed.

          I'd absolutely sign up for a Viking Years set, but I would also expect the timeline involved to be measured in decades rather than years.

              Looks like a self-defense weapon!

                  That's quite a stack! I can't wait to see the final version.

                      It’s already here. We’ve been living it the last 14 months.
