Listings updated for December, new remarques and other news

If you've been following the newsletter you know that S&S released their unsigned but limited edition of Fairy Tale earlier this month. Unfortunately it did not come with a slipcase. I will NOT be making a case for it but our friends over at Lividian Publications are taking pre-orders for a really nice looking slipcase. Pre-order it here and join in on the conversation on the forums. One thing I've been asked to note here, is that this product is not official or licensed by Simon & Schuster.


Regarding our own slipcases, the order of production was changed a little bit - both LATER and Dead Zone cases are back in stock now! If you're looking to put in an order, you can do so here. Drawing of the Three is now expected to be back in stock around the end of the year or early January.


In other news, the Book Industry Charitable Foundation is hosting an online auction with many rare SK items. A lot folks donated items to this, Myself, Betts, Lividian, and others. You can see and bid on all the items HERE and read more about the organization HERE


If you remember last month I mentioned that Firstandfine.com will be putting up a lot of rare SK items over the next few weeks/months. Recently posted is a Michael Whelan original 12x18 framed painting + remarqued book up for sale. Whether you're just window shopping or actually shopping, it's a rare chance to see an original Whelan painting in detail.


On the topic of art, there are a handful of new remarques up this month, feel free to check them out! If you have any you'd like to share, please email me

OLD NEWS


As promised the info page is up for the US trade edition. As well as info and buying pages for the UK limited edition of Fairy Tale are up head on over and check them out! Thank you to those folks that emailed me with pictures of their limitation page for this book. I could only use one, but I really appreciate everyone stepping up to provide photos.


Veryfinebooks put up a nice collectors guide that some of you newer collectors out the may find helpful.


I'm saddened to announce that my bindery let me know their lead person that has been making all their specialty cases, including all the cases for the site, died unexpectedly last month (not Covid related). While the bindery is far from a one man operation it's a loss of a great guy with decades of experience in churning out the cases you have all enjoyed over the years. All the Dark Tower cases, COTW, Dead Zone, and more.

You can add more workers but it will take time for them to train up and become even close to as efficient as someone who's been there for years. This is going to affect not just my cases but all their other customers with small run, specialty cases. As such, I'm removing order buttons for any out of stock case for now, until I have a more clear timeline on when production on my cases can resume. I do expect at least some of the out of stock cases to be back in stock in Q4 this year, but I'm not sure which titles. I should have more information in the next few weeks.


There have been two new limited edition releases announced this month and both have dedicated threads about them - both started by fellow collectors. I want to thank all of you that post on the forums regularly, including breaking news of releases. It really is the fastest way to get information out there. For those of you that don't visit regularly I'd encourage you to bookmark a link and swing by regularly, start up a new topic, or even just read up on anything new.
- 1st limited edition - German anniversary edition of IT, limited to 7,500 copies. Still available for sale, full details on the forums.
- 2nd limited edition - UK S/L edition of Fairy tales. Limited to just 200 copies (some countries excluded from sale). This was already sold out by the time I checked the forums myself and got wind of it, otherwise I would have put out a newseltter. Again more details on the forums.


Looks like SK is coming out with a new Novella called Rattlesnakes which is a "sequel of sorts" to Cujo. You can find a link to the article about it up on the forums.


I have both buying and info pages up for the PS Publishing editions of Dead Zone and Cujo feel free to check them out.


Also Stephen King has announced his latest book Fairy Tale will be released September 6th. If you're looking to pre-order it can be found on Amazon.


There is a new info page up for BIlly Summers, check it out here


Don Matiz reached out and asked if I could let everyone know that he's recently renovated/updated his website, including a page dedicated to the art he did for Stephen King. Not only can you check out quite a bit of artwork, but many of these works have prints available for sale. You can check those out at his Studio Shop page


Kris from the SK Rare Editions Facebook group reached out to let me know a little bit about the group. It's a very active group of almost 3,000 collectors and is run specifically with rare SK items in mind. A lot of buying/selling and sharing of photos going on along with regular contests. If you're on FB do yourself a favor and check them out.


If you're looking for a little eye candy, VeryFineBooks has the ultimate SK collection up for sale for a cool 1.25 million. I have mentioned this before but now there are a number of photos up, so if you've very wanted to see two of the most pristine 1st edition Salem's Lots you're ever going to see, or possibly the only two page remarqued Gunslinger you're going to see, head on over and take a look. As Bob Barker used to say - "All this can be yours, if the price is right" :)


I saw up on Lilja's Library today that SK has removed his FB and Instagram accounts. If you want to follow him, you can still do so on Twitter. You can see the latest new from LIlja's Library on the bottom half of this page, where I pull in his RSS feeds in real time.
