    Thinking I will pass on this one - and probably regret it. But I was pretty close, guessing the multi book deal.

    I ordered the traycased numbered edition, if I change my mind can I still use the coupon to go back and order the gift edition as well?

    Think that was me!

    OK, here's my official guess:
    CD HC reissue project similar to the Bentley Little reissue project. Fire could indicate Carrie being first.

    I just can't see who wouldn't like this news. PS editions aren't signed by king either and they are just lovely. I can only ever afford the gift edition anyway so it doesn't matter to me.

    The only strange things is that most of these books were just published or are being published soon in a limited edition format. That said it will be nice to get a lot of them in on uniform style and size. I still don't know if I will get Carrie, I already have PS's version on pre-order and I have another really nice book I have my eye on.

    Couldn't have said it better. And they'll have their work cut out for them with each SK announcemnt on the list.

    Yeah. It certainly wasn't everybody's cup of tea. Not signed and have to be ready every 6 months to get one? I still ordered the gift edition but I'm not very happy.

    I ordered mine, although a bit of questionable timing since I have Carrie 40th on pre-order already! And, Pet Semetery just had an anniversary edition as well...which I already have an extra of!! I will say this, if SK continues to bash Republicans I will take my evil money elsewhere!!!!

    Brian, will The Stand use the text of the original release or the uncut release?

    The gift editions are fine by me. As you said CD does a great job on them.

    I love that Tabitha King wrote an afterword for this. And, of course, I had to get a numbered and a gift. But it does seem a little strange that PS already put out Pet Sematary (which will be included in this series) and is going to put out Night Shift as well. Not like that will stop me from getting them all. And to be able to get a limited and a gift for less than a signed King is pretty cool. Although it would be nice if he was signing these.

    Thanks CD, for what will undoubtedly be an incredible collection. Looking forward to the other 5.

    IDK how I feel about another double-dip of The Shining given I just got SP's.

    The art released is for the Gift Edition. I'd like to know what the Artist Edition art (which is different) looks like before ordering. Since there's no King signature, all I'm buying the book for is the edition/art. I like the Gift cover but if the other cover doesn't strike me I would rather have the Gift edition.

    This stood out as well:
    Carrie Will Be a Collectible Limited ONE TIME PRINTING Featuring an Introduction by Stephen King, an Afterword by Tabitha King, Six Color Paintings by Tomislav Tikulin, and Special Bonus Features Exclusive to This Edition!
    And this:
    These special editions will feature exclusive bonus features such as introductions, afterwords, artwork, and even deleted material in some cases.
    Deleted material? Could Carrie contain the original version Tabitha saved from the trash bin? Could The Shining finally contain both Before and After the Play? Will The Stand be the original version? Will 'Salem's Lot have the added material from the Centipede Press version? Will Night Shift be expanded with additional stories? Will Pet Sematary have the story, The Return of Timmy Baterman included?

    All things to ponder...

    As disappointed as I was with the PS edition of Christine and Pet Semetary, I am overjoyed that CD will have an edition of Pet Semetary!!! Who wants to buy my PS edition???

    As I have some of these in pb and do not have a lot of expendable cash, I will probably be selective in the ones I pick/order from this deal.

    But regardless - congrats on this fantastic deal the folks at CD - and thanks to Brian for keeping us on our toes!!!!!

    It's not a mandatory ordering after the first. Just wait for the ones you want and skip the rest if you so choose.
