    Certified mail (or the smallest folded-letter-size priority envelope) costs a couple bucks, but it's worth the peace of mind.

    That sucks about the expensive watch. Yikes.

      Yeah, it sure does. It's a big mess and either way, I'm out the watch and all that money I have to refund.

      Anyway, I will make sure I send it certified, but the way things are going, I may not be able to afford it.

        But even if it's the middle of a series, both fanatical King fans and the general King fan, want his limited editions, period. I don't think it matters if they only have the limiteds of Black House or the limiteds of DT 5-7 and Little Sisters (like I do).
        They're valuable on their own. Besides, even if there are guys who insist on having all the limiteds, chances are they'll be missing some and I'll have the ones they want. The only problem is trying to figure out how to let those guys know I have what they want lol.

          DARK TOWER: THE WIND THROUGH THE KEYHOLE

          1. WEB ORDER PAGE

          We are now accepting advance orders for both the Deluxe and
          Artist Editions of THE DARK TOWER: THE WIND THROUGH
          THE KEYHOLE at:

          https://secure.grantbooks.com/z-sk-dt-twttk.html

          Please read the rest of this Newsletter before placing your order.

          2. DEPOSIT/INSTALLMENT OPTION

          Because of the state of the economy if your order totals over
          $300 we are willing to accept a 1/3 deposit with your order, 1/3
          a month later the final 1/3 will be charged when the order is
          shipped. If you wish to send checks you may send three post--
          dated checks. For foreign orders we will put the full shipping
          amount in the final charge.

          3. ARTIST EDITION

          There is a 5,000 copy Artist Edition signed by Jae Lee and issued
          in a stamped slipcase. Retail price is $75.00 plus shipping.
          Unlike the Artist Editions of the DARK TOWER 5, 6 & 7 there is
          no limitation on who may buy this edition.

          4. DELUXE EDITION

          Stephen King has agreed to sign only 800 copies of a Deluxe
          Edition which is also signed by Jae Lee and issued in a stamped
          clamshell tray case. Retail price is $350.00 plus shipping.

          As usual there is a much greater demand for our Deluxe Editions
          than copies available, so in keeping with our policy of supporting
          our long time customers, the S&N Deluxe Edition can be ordered
          only by those who have a S&N THE LITTLE SISTERS OF
          ELURIA below # 801 (you must still own it when we ship THE
          WIND THROUGH THE KEYHOLE or your order will be can-
          celled and any depost/payment refunded and the Deluxe Edition
          sold to the new owner.).

          We will then do a lottery drawing approximately six weeks after
          the Deluxe Editions are shipped for remaining available copies
          but as we expect there to be very few copies available the lottery
          will be restricted to owners of Numbered THE LITTLE SISTERS
          OF ELURIA between 801 and 1,250.

          LOTTERY: Send us a POSTCARD (NOT an email or letter)
          which reads:

          “Please put me in the lottery to purchase a copy of the signed &
          numbered Deluxe The WIND THROUGH THE KEYHOLE. I
          have # ____ of THE Little Sisters of Eluria.” Include
          your name, address, phone number, and if you wish, email
          address.

          REMEMBER, only send in ONE post card per copy of The
          Little Sisters of Eluria that you have. If we receive
          more than one request from anyone we will throw them ALL
          away. We want everyone to have an equal chance.

          5. SCRIBNER TRADE EDITION

          Scribner has announced their release of a trade hardcover
          edition of THE DARK TOWER: THE WIND THROUGH THE
          KEYHOLE on April 24, 2012.

          6. TRADE EDITION SLIPCASE

          We will be producing a slipcase for the Scribner Trade Edition
          which will match the three slipcases we produced for the first
          seven Dark Tower books:

          https://secure.grantbooks.com/z-sk-dt-slipcases.html

          This will not be shipped until 6-8 weeks after the Trade Edition
          is released so that we can be sure it will fit properly. Cost is
          $30.00.


          7. PRINTED FLYER

          We are doing our usual full-color printed flyer but felt it made
          more sense to mail it in January rather than just before
          Christmas.

          8. ORDER CONFIRMATION

          If you send a check and the check is cashed we have received
          your order. If you sent an order via our website you will receive
          as confirmation an email titled “RE WWW Form Submission”. As
          we expect to receive 1,500 or more email orders within 24 hours
          of sending this Newsletter you may not receive your confirma-
          tion for several weeks. If you call or email us this will only delay
          getting orders ready.

          We have a small staff and will be hiring extra help but it will take
          time to process orders, especially for people expecting a specific
          numbered copy. We appreciate your patience.

          Please do not call or email us for further details as we will just
          refer you to our web site and suggest you remain subscribed to
          our email newsletter.

          We will send out another Newsletter when we know when ship-
          ping will begin.


          Thank you.

                Yep, just ordered my copy of The Wind Through the Keyhole - Artist Edition. I don't qualify for the numbered one.

                  Got the artist edition, which is all I qualify for. That's ok, as my DT series is all just Grant artist or trade editions anyway.

                    I'm about to order the signed/limited but I sure hope they don't come up with another one for awhile. A total of almost $400???
                    Waaaaay too much. Does anyone now if King will do more DT books? I figured I had no choice but to get one not only because I was lucky enough to win the lottery, but because I already have 4 signed /limited of the DT books. How can I pass that up? But the good thing is there's only 800 copies being made.

                    But do any of you guys know how long I have to order it? A week or more? Plus, I read the people who have numbers above 800 I think it is of Little Sisters...will be the only ones allowed to enter the lottery for this book. Kinda odd.

                      I ordered my S/L's and an Artist Edition. I would have ordered two AE's but since they're unnumbered, I'll probably order another one at a later date.

                      Personally I'm good with the pricing levels they've chosen. Given the popularity of the Dark Tower series and the relatively low number of S/L's, the $350 asking pricing could have been a lot higher -and they would have gotten it.


                      In regards to the lottery, I doubt that many copies will go unsold in the intial offering. I think it's fair of DMG to allow the owners of LSOE > 801 to have the first shot at the extra copies.

                        I'm excited about this book's imminent release.

                        Should this thread be merged with the like thread in the Other Publishers forum? Maybe that one should be moved to this forum?

                            I'm not eligible for a deluxe edition, and there are 5,000 artists editions, so I think I'll wait for my resources to build up again.

                                yeah i thought 5000 AE's is a lot, but then if you take into accont the fact that this is a new story and coming out around 2 months before the trade edition!
