    Not unless that's a very recent development.

    I still think Robin Furth is the real author.

    Ah, now I finally get it (blame the heat): King is the author since it's basically the story he told in The Waste Lands, this time just illustrated and presented as its own book. If some copies should ever surface on eBay and the likes, they're gonna be very expensive!

    So it's adapted by someone else. Still very interesting

    The first Ebay price is insane.

    Well, I was right, after all. It is taken directly from The Waste Lands as King wrote it, so it is King after all, and not some other person's adaptation. The woman pretending to be Beryl Evans was a hired actress named Alison Davies.

    it would have been quite a trick to produce the original

    Just got word that Scribner will be releasing Charlie the Choo-Choo on November 22, 2016. Just noticed the date as I typed it out. Go here: Charlie the Choo-Choo by Stephen King

    ...Thanks Steve, I just got the email from Cemetery Dance earlier today announcing the very same thing and the price will be reasonable....I've been a member of the Stephen King Library Club forever-so I will see if they plan on sending it out, and if not-will score one the best I can.....

    So, is this going to be along the same lines as the Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon pop-up book, meaning it will be available in the Children's Book section at the local B & N or do we have to pre-order it as it won't be widely available?

    The book, in hardcover as well as ebook is available on Amazon preorder. Also available thru Cemetery Dance.
