    Just read the description, seems interesting. Maybe when it comes out I'll give ebooks a shot.

    I'm with you; there's nothing like a new Stephen King hardcover. Well, maybe an SK limited edition...

    Anyway, I don't doubt that King will release another story collection in the future. Though it may be some time because one of his most recent releases (Just After Sunset) is this type of book. He tends to average about 7.5 years between story collections with the exception of his previously unreleased novella collections like Four Past Midnight and Full Dark, No Stars.

    Hopefully King will include The Plant - finished or not.
    I printed the parts that were done, but as King indicated he's not planning to continue this work-in-progress, I do hope we'll get to see it collected in an upcoming collection.

    And no, I haven't read it yet. Still hoping King will change his mind and actually finish it.

    Received the Kindle download last night (6pm local time) and, although I haven't read it yet, it's maybe interesting to note that there is a reasonably sized excerpt from 11/22/63 - can't be unhappy with that

    I enjoyed it. Quick read, and the excerpt from 11/22/63 really has me pumped!

    Finished this up last night! I liked it but can't use the word love here. I know he has always had a thing for cars, what with Christine and From a Buick 8, and this story reminded me of both in certain ways. There was some fun involved, nostalgia for your own childhood, and some creepiness but seems a little "choppy" in places. Still, a must read of course. The excerpt for 11/22/63 was better!
