    Yeah I was thinking of jumping on it since I missed CD's version, but it's just not that appetizing of a purchase. No illustrations and no sig. I dig the slipcase and the ribbon but that isn't worth an extra $150.

    There's a review in the latest Esquire... "tense but not very scary" - they even tossed around the word "tender" and said "it reads more like a love story than a ghost story." Don't know if I like the sound of that, but I'm sure I'll get it anyway.

    King is not cynical enough to write a quicky knock-off. He's said many times that--even if not paid--he must write. We're lucky to still have him at all.

    I DEFINITELY don't like the sound of that, but will read it when it coems out. And reserve judgement.

    I don't think I agree with that quote at all.

    This isn't officially announced yet, and it has nothing to do with the Cemetery Dance Early Readers Club promotions we offer, but I think it'll be of interest to anyone who might like a chance to win a free copy of the signed Limited Edition of DOCTOR SLEEP.

    A new website called the Early Readers Club will be giving away a copy of the Signed Limited Edition of DOCTOR SLEEP by Stephen King to a random person who signs up for their mailing list before they launch:

    http://www.EarlyReadersClub.com

    After the site launches, there will be news posted about DOCTOR SLEEP, including "insider" information. There will also be more prizes including copies of the already Out of Print Gift Edition, copies of the trade hardcover from Scribner, and also a very cool interoffice proof of the Cemetery Dance edition.

    However, Stephen King has publicly stated that Doctor Sleep is "a return to balls-to-the-wall, keep-the-lights-on horror."

    He clearly means business with this one. I'll bet my mortgage that it's more Pet Semetary than Mills & Boon.

    Have faith and trust the greatest horror writer of all time to deliver another classic. This book will be about as "tender" as a sledgehammer to the face.

    Thanks! Yeah, must admit the idea of a Shining sequel sounds very risky, but I've heard nothing but good things about DS.
