In a move reminiscent of the S/L Regulators, Stephen King did not sign the books themselves. Rather King's signature is on the baseball card that comes with the book.

Also to note, Lonely Road Books is a subsidiary of Cemetery Dance. The contact info is the same for both publishing houses, and the books are sold and promoted via Cemetery Dance's website and mailing lists. Unfortunately for folks that have a life long prepaid subscription to CD, it does not included titles published by LRB.
