    I feel the same way, but The SHining was my intro to King and remains my favorite of his works. I may not even have enough for it. We'll see.

    I can't remember the first King book I read. The book the hooked me in though was the uncut version of The Stand. Still one of my al time favorite reads!

    Since Doctor Sleep is not even out yet, who knows, maybe they will have a limited of that. That's why I am torn...the money and "what if" there is a limited of Doctor Sleep.....DAMN!!!!!

    Passing on the coupon and most likely The Shining as well. I am in organize and pitch mode right now and my wife is on the same page. With all the books CD is putting out plus
    the New book club I am trying to still figure out what to keep.Look for more stuff for sale soon.

    If I were to change my mind I would go with the Gift edition.

    I'm going for the S/L edition. I read The Shining when it came out in paperback back in the early '80s, and it's always been one of my favorites. I've also been resisting the various CD offers to justify spending the $450 on The Shining

    I was getting the Gift edition, but all this talk about a S/L of Doctor Sleep is making me re-think... But then again, if the wife ever found out that I spent $450 on 1 book, I may not be around to enjoy it.

    I have to get a s/l, just no question about it, it may be the only book I buy for the whole year but it will be worth it in the long run

    SubPress put a note on their home page today that they will NOT honor requests for specific numbers for The Shining. Nice. Real nice. Gee, do you think King fans MIGHT want the number to match their other limiteds...Maybe???Hhmmmm.... I can ceetainly see that you can't have a given number if someone else asked for it already, but....

    I just don't find much about sp that I really like, but I will try to put aside all that and will try to get a gift edition tomorrow.

    I'm pretty much resigned to a gift edition though I am far from excited about the art just because it IS The Shining. Really don't see dropping that $$$ on art I don't love.

    I'm not wild about SP either. That's awfully rude on their part not to honor any number requests, even from their regular customers even it sounds like. I almost bought Lansdale's Act of Love off eBay not too long ago but decided not to, though it was considerably below the price it was sold for by SP (Definitely didn't seem to be worth $100 to me). Ended up buying a Thunderstorm Black Voltage title for about the price of the Hard Rain editions I've been able to find. I should be picking it up from the post office tomorrow (Was gonna today, but temps were still below 0, so gonna do it tomorrow instead) and will hopefully be able to get pictures posted later tomorrow night of that and my newest package from Cemetery Dance.

    I might try to get a gift edition of The Shining, but dunno when I'd be to do that yet. Not too crazy on the price, but at least isn't even higher
