    King novel most in need of a signed limited edition...

    Ok,

    There are a number of King books that have not been made into signed limiteds....so if you could pick one to be be given the royal treatment, which would it be??

    For me......Pet Semetary!!!! With Glenn Charbourne art!!!

    LOL I actually agree...that would be the perfect book as a limited edition. It's always been in my top 3 of all of King's work.

    If I had to pick one prior King book to be done as a limited I would it would be a toss up between Different Seasons or Everythings Eventual. I would like to see either of these with different artists for each story.

    I agree with martin, however, I am leaning more towards different seasons. It would be super cool to see the four novella's in there own books with "seasonal" colorings. Something similar to the The Green Mile limited.

    A Bag of Bones Limited would be nice. It's one of my favorite books and is truly terrifying at times.

    Oddly enough, I have not read Bag of Bones yet, but I did meet him in Chicago when he did a signing at a library downtown for Bag. I asked him to sign his middle name in the signature. He said he would, but nobody would believe he really did that! LOL!!

    I would have to agree with Pet Semetery. I would also love to see one done for The Stand, It (unless those have already been done, of course). Bag of Bones would be a good one as well. Thought that one was being made into a movie at some point. Would love to see it made into a movie (as long as it was done properly)

    The Stand has been done, http://stephenkingcollector.com/buy-...stand-buy.html, and an "unofficial" German limited of It or Es has been done. An official It would be aces.

    I think I'd go for a The Mist limited.
    Just the novella.
    At one time Frank Darabont was working on it.
    But that was years ago...
    Anyone know what happened?

    Last I heard, he was still planning to do that at some point. I'm hoping he has the time because it would awesome!

    The Mist with Frank Darabont would be a nice addition beside my 'Riding the Bullet'! Another Lonely Road Books Double.

    Brad, drop me a line whenever you do get a chance to read Bag of Bones... it's easily one of my favorite King books of the last 15 years, and I'm always curious to hear what people think...!

    I would agree with Brian on Bag of Bones being one of Kings better novels of the past 15 years. I would recommend you follow that with Lisey's Story if you have not read it yet.

    Yep, I re-read them back to back last year and totally agree with you.

    Bag of Bones and Lisey's Story are my absolute favorites of the past decades.
    The former contains the most emotionally devastating passage ever in a Kingbook - totally unexpected.
    The first and only time King ever brought tears to my eyes (to put it mildly).

    I believe I read somewhere that King considers Lisey's Story his best ever.
    I almost agree with him - still got a soft spot for The Stand, though...

    Not to get too off topic, but what did you think of Duma Key?

    I liked it, but not half as much as BoB or LS.
    The first part was excellent -some of King's best writing ever.
    The second half....let's call it disappointing...

    PET SEMETARY gets my vote.

    DIFFERENT SEASONS would be a close second.

    DEAD ZONE would be a close third. I have the Easton Press edition, and it is nice, but still I'd love a signed limited edition.



    On the side topic: I enjoyed all three of those books (BAG OF BONES, LISEY'S STORY, and DUMA KEY).

    Interesting, I actually found I liked Duma Key more and more as it neared its conclusion. Some of the events towards the end were particularly moving for me. Awesome book.

    Brian
    Duma Key = B+
    Bag of Bones = B
    Lisey's Story = C-

    As far as a S/L, I'd go with It. Not because it's my favorite of the non-S/L books (it's not), but b/c I think someone would do a really good job with it.
