It does have a rather long and interesting essay in it by King and the photos are beautiful and haunting. That said, if you're a King completist (or on the way to being one) then it is well worth the price. I don't regret buying my copy when it was first published and paid full price for it, too.

Thanks, all! Sounds like it's not just short text & pics.
King's essay runs for 20 pages, although some of the text on each page only uses half (or less) of the page. There are a couple of gate-fold photos , meaning that you open the book to that page and then have to fold out the picture to see the whole thing). This is one title that I don't have a duplicate copy of. Must get one soon!

It is a good book. I originally saw an extract from the book in a men's magazine back around 1987, because i used to buy men's magazines for the articles and short stories. I still have that mag. I have the book, the hard cover version and F-stop Fitzgerald is a good photographer. I haven't read the whole book cover to cover but I liked the part from memory where King is in a limo going down some steet in New York (43rd?) and he's looking at the gargoyles.
