    Question on The Colorado Kid

    Which of the the limiteds of TCK came out first: the Chadbourne illustrated, the Miller illustrated or the Potter illustrated? I can get any one of the signed editions for one price or all three trade HCs for the same price.

    I have the collector's edition of Under the Dome, but no other limited editions of King's books. That is until IT comes out.

    If you mean the PS Publishing versions, the 3 artist editions were released at the same time. I'm not sure why they did it that way, but it was an intersting way to do the limited. I ended up getting one signed and the other 2 in trade HC when they were released.

    Good choice!
    These are really nice books.
    I was lucky to get one of the lettered (don't know why it's called that, it's not lettered at all) editions of the Potter version, 1/33.
    Beautiful book.

    'm still on the look-out for the other two as well.
    But they're always very expensive.
    I remember buying all three lettereds when they became available -even paid for them, but then it turned out only one lettered per customer was allowed.
    Of course I got my money back, but I would have preferred the books!

    You think they're nice books? I have to assume you mean the lettered only as they were by far, the ugliest and cheapest looking limited editions I've ever seen by any author. I sold mine because it looked like a trade paperback in a slipcase. Pathetic, and that was the last thing I bought from PS.

    Yes, I meant the lettered editions.
    Expensive, but done very well.

    I just finished The Colorado Kid and I have to say the King continues to amaze me. I'll have to reread "The Breathing Method", but TCK is one of my favorite of his shorter works. I don't see how it fit in with the Hard Crime series it was part of, but it is nonetheless a masterful work. I might have to check out the series Haven, too...

    I loved the little book too, though i know that quite a few people aren't too bothered by it. With the limited editions i thought PS did a great job. Which artists cover is everyones favourite?

    Hmmmmm well Potter's is my least favourite, not much of a suprise but Glenn's is my top cover. Just seems to me to be what the Maine coast should be like?

    Well, it doesn't really matter anymore since I no longer have it lol. But only 333 copies from each artist edition and I still decided to sell it because I hated the looks of it.

    I was able to get one each of the three signed limiteds (150 copies) and one each of the artist-signed editions (333 copies) from PS. I begged him to let me get one of each artist.
