I got mine today. I never got an e-mail that the book had shipped so any of you that haven't got yours yet, it may be on the way. It's weird that I never got an e-mail about shipment after they sent me a dozen e-mails over the past 6 weeks telling me it was getting closer to being ready to ship. ;-D

Anyway, it's gorgeous. I love the artwork on the dust jacket.

These Cemetery Dance editions are gorgeous productions. I have the first two and THE SHINING on order and will buy the rest as well. If you get a chance, snap them up. I was less-impressed with their edition of IT. The one I had seemed far less quality than the two Doubleday books, but that's probably because of the length of IT. The paper stock on CARRIE and 'SALEM'S LOT are thick and feel great. IT, which I've since sold, seemed quite a bit thinner, but then again I'm sure it's because of the length of the book, especially compared to CARRIE. I'm hoping they're able to bind THE STAND with the thicker stock. I could be remembering IT differently, perhaps it did have the thicker paper, but I don't remember it that way. It's been a few years. I've been hit or miss with CD's editions in the past but these have not disappointed. I bought THE REVELATION by Bentley Little and was disappointed that the font on the cover was the same as the font on a bag of oranges I bought at the store later. That took a little away for me. The only complaint I have about CARRIE is the line "CARRIE WHITE EATS ****" that is graffiti is made up of a font, and so the common letters are exactly the same, instead of illustrated to look like an actual hand drawn note. But that's just a little thing. Everything else is top notch with these.

I'm hoping that CD will split up The Stand into two separate books. It'll just be too large otherwise and the spine will split eventually.

My copy of IT, which appears to be unread (eBay purchase so not 100% sure) has slightly loose spine because the text block was too big for those end pages. I put in an insert of book board to help any further sag. Yeah, I hope they split the Stand into two volumes.

Not only the spine splitting, but I reckon it would be way too heavy to hold whilst reading. The basic hardcover edition of the uncut version gets really uncomfortable trying to read it in bed. Add to that the thicker quality paper and glossy illustrations and I believe Arnold Schwarzenegger would have trouble lifting it when he was in his prime...

Isn't the book technically in three parts anyway? I guess they could split them that way and then compile them in one fancy slipcase.

Anyway, I bought the Special Edition of Carrie when it came out by passed on the other two. They look beautiful but it's just too expensive purchasing every single one, especially when you factor in shipping to the UK. Don't think I'll be able to resist ordering The Stand, though, as it's my second favourite King book.

Brian Freeman from Cemetery Dance here. The shipping costs USPS charges us for Non-US addresses are absolutely insane. I can understand passing when the postage ends up being as much as the book! Trust me, we hate it as much as you do because they're costing us sales and preventing our collectors from getting books they want. We lose, the collectors lose, and the USPS... wins, I guess?

Anyway, if you haven't checked out PS Publishing in the UK, they carry almost all of our books and their shipping charges to you would be extremely reasonable. I think they might still have 'SALEM'S LOT on their site. They definitely had THE SHINING a few days ago.

Thanks!

Brian
