    It's really great looking. Unfortunately a bit out of my budget right now, but hopefully I can snatch up a GE in the future.

    I WANT to get the GE, but I'm hesitant about this book. I know it's almost certainly not the case, but I can't look at it and think anything other than, "Hey, what if we did Y....BUT WITH MEN AS THE SURVIVORS?!?"

    You guys are scaring me. I stretched a bit and bought the signed limited edition and your comments are giving me pause. I've got pause!

    I'm positive my own concern is unfounded and just me being paranoid.

    Would that be manopause? Sounds bad!

    Thank you for reaffirming my faith in myself. Because I jumped pretty quickly when that advance notice came through.

    Same. Had to pass, though I do so w/ no regrets...maybe I'll pick up the GE down the road.

    Plus, I read this a couple years ago, and so figured it was a little early to go for a double dose of the same theme (though the Kings' work has *got* to be better than this silly effort by an otherwise typically reliable mystery author, Day Keene):

    The signed edition is gone despite being a slightly larger run (at 850) than other artist editions. Within a day of the announcement. Wow.

    I'm actually not sure, definitely not until after the trade edition is out.

    I passed as well. I almost went for the limited a few times, even going so far as to load it into the cart and start the checkout process. While it would be nice to own, I just can't justify spending the money when so many more books are on the way that I will ultimately want more (Bring on the McCammon lettered editions, please!).

    Congratulations to everyone who got one. No doubt all editions will be beautiful.

    Yeah. I know that grabbing this one means passing on a future offering. What made me jump is having both Stephen's and Owen's signatures. Feels like an event I just didn't want to miss out on. So on the horizon for me (and what I'll be spending money on for sure) is The Stand, Bird Box, Goblin, The Listener.

    Apart from those, I might have to pass. And that might hurt when those other two McCammon books are revealed.

    New King, I'd agree. I didn't buy Finders Keepers or End of Watch. I hated Revival. Doctor Sleep was hugely disappointing. This one seemed different. Or I was just a sucker for the event around the book.

    But I would like to see Cemetery Dance be more than King's castle. Which is why I'm excited for the McCammon move.

    Though I am super cautious about new authors from CD because Haven was just awful. Unless it was a YA novel. Shoot, even if it was a YA novel. I tried three times to read that book. I put it down every time I felt like punching it or someone. I would take a break and read something else. I only got halfway through.
