    There isn't going to be a limited edition that I am aware of. I can't find the above item on Cemetery Dance's web site.

    Erhm, if you don't mind me asking, who took Mr King's idea and hit a home run with it?

    The ARC doesn't list the cover artist so not 100% sure but my guess is it was an in-house product of Scribner's Art Department. As soon as I have better information, I'll post an update.

  13. This book totally sounds like it could be a Bachman entry. Really makes me want to pick up Roadwork before June 3rd hits.

    Given the entire style, it isn't what I would consider a Bachman book. That's just me, though.

    I agree -- Bachman books tend to be bleak.

    Well, you don't expect everything to be shiny and nice in a Stephen King novel, but the tone of the Bachman books is particularly and identifiably darker, in my opinion.

    Am I right in remembering the back cover contains an image of an ice cream truck?
    I am asking because it’s raining here at 8:30 PM and I randomly hear this peculiar jingle from outside; I looked out the window and saw an ice-cream truck… in the rain… at night.

    Yes, on the U.S. cover there is an ice cream truck on the back.
