He hasn't shared that with me but my understanding is that the final list of stories for the short story collection hasn't yet been set in stone.
...so Steve has now deluded himself into a Moses Complex...and plans on publishing on stone tablets???....damn, and I thought UTD was a big book....

Use your powers of persuasion to convince him into including "Bad Little Kid" and "Afterlife"
I don't know about Afterlife but have been able to confirm that because it will be a fall release, "Bad Little Kid" will be part of the new collection. There was an exclusive for the French and German publishers for that but it will expire in June 2015.

Interesting how all that works. I'm sure there is enough I don't know about the publishing business to fill it's own book lol

...sheesh, some people!....:laugh:...no, have not read it yet...and those "teasers' are always like an unfulfilling appetizer to me...just enough to whet my appetite, but no meal to follow until Fall in this case...
Sigh, I read the "Revival" sneak peak at the back of Doctor Sleep; I have been fish-hooked into the story and am annoyed I have to wait to read the rest.

Will Blockade Billy be included? I think this story was only published in one or two languages besides English. Including it in the collection would finally make it available to all the international fans.

As for including an older story, how about Cycle of the Werewolf? This short story was published as a standalone book, but was never collected.

This is why I won't read the 'teasers' in the books anymore. Makes me run around with my tongue lolling out of my mouth, whimpering.

Nooooooo...we need a rest after all that needed to be done behind the scenes for Mr. Mercedes! =D
...please make sure that Steve has carefully vetted the type of tent he's using for his Revival-because Gan forbid it has the wrong type of stripes, side flaps or center pole....*shudder*...
