    Makes sense. It'll be interesting to see if the popularity of the others moving forward will pull 'her' GE into the fray. As in this set is going to be so killer, gotta have the first one to go along with the others. The matched numbers and letters will be a goldmine, IMO, once it's all said and done. Of course we'll be left wanting more, Brian. Much, much more......(insert evil laugh here).

I was being pretty bold with my 48 hour sell out prediction for The Shining; but not by much it'll seem. I agree, Martin. With the release of 'Salem's Lot and then The Shining; folks better not wait around too long when the remaining three are announced. Looks like our poor girl, Carrie is still looking for a date to the prom. What are your guys opinions on how come it didn't sell out and do you think there might be a run on it as well with the popularity of books 2 and 3?

    For historical context, our Slipcased Gift Edition of IT was the exact same number of copies, but that edition was still available to be ordered after the book was published. That clearly will not be the case here.

    It would appear that the word is out on how nice this set is shaping up to be.

    That's great! The whole series is really nice. I'm especially looking forward to The Stand.

    That is just awesome, Brian: congratulations to the Cemetery Dance folks responsible for another this success!
    And to us, the lucky buyers, who soon (well, let's stay optimistic here) may add another wonderful edition to their collection.

It would've been unfortunate to see this kind of style for 'SALEM'S LOT or the others, but for NIGHT SHIFT I think that's right on the money.

    Yep, that was exactly our goal when we discussed which artist to hire for the interior... I think everyone will be pleased with the 20 pieces he's working on!

    Brian
    I think you're spot on, Ron with your assessment of how the art should be done in this edition. I honestly never thought about it til you mentioned that most, if not all, these stories first appeared in that medium. Good on CD as well if that's where it's headed.

    I love the art, but I need to do a reread. I don't recall the stories enough to place them.

    One more sneak peek at a SKETCH for the artwork for NIGHT SHIFT, but please note it is just an early sketch and the perspective or other elements or even the scene selected could change completely for the final artwork:
