    I've now shipped all of the direct orders for the Limited Edition of The King of Shadows, and the retailers have also started out the door and will be finished this week. If you haven’t received a shipping notification and you ordered directly from Lividian, please email me at brian@lividian.com for assistance.

    This week is also publication week for the first-ever trade paperback edition of Mister Slaughter by Robert McCammon, and there's still some time to order the guaranteed first printings bundle of all of the new trade paperbacks, including one signed by McCammon. The bundle will begin shipping next week: https://lividian.com/store/the-matth...inting-bundle/

      Gorgeous looking book. Congrats to everyone that purchased one. I passed because this story doesn't speak to me however this edition certainly did. Looking forward to what comes next from Lividian.

        Just received my copy of King of Shadows (had ordered via SubPress). Book was everything I was expecting and more. Really love the production values on this one. I can't wait to dig into the story as I adore this series by McCammon. My only issue now is whether to go back and re-read the previous volume(s) since it has been so long since the last book. Quickly flipped through the book itself to ensure the signature/number and noticed lots of good artwork. Also really like the quality of the slipcase. It's nice and thick and seems like it will hold up to expected wear and tear. I'm still not sure how I feel about the most recent slipcases having that die-cut (?) window. A part of me likes that I am able to see the artwork as all of the Lividian covers have been pretty great so far; however, there is another (worrier) part of me that wishes the cases were fully enclosed to lessen the chances of any dust or foreign debris getting into the case. Wonder if they will all be die-cut going forward or if that will change depending on the circumstances? Anyway, another top-notch production from Lividian! Can't wait to see what their next announcement will be!!!

          I Love the cut out on the case. I can really say the dust/debris issue is a concern for me 1) The entire spine still shows on on all slipcases, and as a suggestion, I put Brodart covers on all of my dust jackets for protection anyway. You might want to look into those.

                    Important update on THE KING OF SHADOWS Lettered Edition!

                    Nearly 100 collectors signed up to be notified when THE KING OF SHADOWS Lettered Edition was available, and many of them made letter requests, but very few stated if they actually already HAVE a full or nearly full set of the series with that letter.

                    We have at least 45 collectors who buy every single Lettered Edition we publish and receive matching letters, so this is going to be a complicated situation, but I'm hoping some trades can be made to keep sets complete.

                    This morning, I emailed everyone who had filled out the form with the following questions. If you filled out the form and don't see that email, please get in touch if you answer YES to any of these questions. (OR if you didn't know about the form and you have a full set, please get in touch!) My email address is brian@lividian.com

                    * If you have MOST of the Matthew Corbett Lettered Editions with the same letter, please let me know what letter you have.

                    * If you have MOST of the Matthew Corbett Lettered Editions, and you have the same letter for the books from Subterranean Press but didn't get your preferred letter on Cardinal Black from CD, please let me know BOTH letters you have in your set.

                    * If you have a FULL SET of the Matthew Corbett Lettered Editions but a variety of different letters, please reply and let me know that you have a full set of mixed letters.

                      I'm very pleased to announce a surprise bonus for The King of Shadows trade hardcover edition, which will be published on December 6:

                      Earlier this year, Robert McCammon generously agreed to sign signature sheets for this edition, so any copies ordered directly from Lividian Publications or one the retailers listed on our site will be a 1st printing signed by the author. This includes copies already ordered, you do not need to order again. (The copies going to Amazon, etc, will NOT be signed -- see the update on the site for more info.)

                      Here are all of the details including the list of retailers:

                        This is a wonderful surprise, Brian! How generous of McCammon to do this for his fans. That had to be a lot of signatures.

                          thanks for the bonus Brian. looking forward to my copy.

                            Good news! We’ll be shipping the trade hardcover of THE KING OF SHADOWS by Robert McCammon right around the end of the month, so it’s almost time to collect payments on the preorders placed directly from Lividian. Please see this update for specifics:

                              Well, I had a slipcase planned for the trade edition of FAIRY TALE by Stephen King but then I found out there were multiple printing plants in multiple countries for that edition, resulting in at least three different sizes for the books, and I said "nope" and closed the project folder.

                              Now I find out the new Simon & Schuster special edition is being issued without a slipcase, so all of that prep work might not go to waste!

                              If you're interested in a slipcase for the special edition, please see this page on the Lividian website:

                              https://lividian.com/store/custom-sl...-stephen-king/

                              Assuming there's enough interest AND we confirm this special edition was only printed in one plant, I will have my prototype slipcase resized to fit the special edition and take some orders!

                                I'm in for a slipcase.

                                Thanks for thinking about us.
