Some Details on Joyland Publication Date

Hard Case Crime has announced it will publish Stephen King's new novel Joyland, in June 2013.  The novel is set in a small town North Carolina amusement park in 1973 and tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying chils, and the ways both will change his life forever.

Stephen King commented, "I love crime, I love mysteries, and I love ghosts. That combo made Hard Case Crime the perfect venue for this book, which is one of my favorites. I also loved the paperbacks I grew up with as a kid, and for that reason, we’re going to hold off on e-publishing this one for the time being. Joyland will be coming out in paperback, and folks who want to read it will have to buy the actual book."

I love e-books.  This bums me out, although I always buy a hard copy of his books too.  I'll just end up having to read my copy that usually goes into my collection unread.

"Joyland is a breathtaking, beautiful, heartbreaking book," said Charles Ardai, Edgar- and Shamus Award-winning editor of Hard Case Crime. "It’s a whodunit, it’s a carny novel, it’s a story about growing up and growing old, and about those who don’t get to do either because death comes for them before their time. Even the most hardboiled readers will find themselves moved. When I finished it, I sent a note saying, ‘Goddamn it, Steve, you made me cry.’ "

Joyland will have painted cover art by Robert McGinnis, the artist behind the posters for the original Sean Connery Bond movies and Breakfast at Tiffany's, and Glen Orbik, who painted the cover for The Colorado Kid, King's other novel published by Hard Case.

Stephen King's 10 Favorite Books

From CSMonitor.com:

King's choices reflect that the notion that terrifying fiction lies not in the invention of otherworldly creatures, but in the examination of what is monstrous in human nature.

1. ‘The Golden Argosy,’ edited by Van H. Cartmell and Charles Grayson
2. ‘The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,’ by Mark Twain
3. 'The Satanic Verses,’ by Salman Rushdie
4. ‘McTeague,’ by Frank Norris
5. ‘Lord of the Flies,’ by William Golding
6. ‘Bleak House,’ by Charles Dickens
7. ‘1984,’ by George Orwell
8. ‘The Raj Quartet,’ by Paul Scott
9. ‘Light in August,’ by William Faulkner
10. ‘Blood Meridian,’ by Cormac McCarthy

I've only read about half of these.  Maybe I'll check out the rest.

Stephen King's IT: The 25th Anniversary Editions

I was 13 years old when I first read "IT".  Being one of the first King novels that I read, and the fact that it scared the crap out of me, "IT" holds a special place in my list of favorite King books.  I love everything about this book.  In fact, I've re-read it many times.  King is at his best when writing about children, and those parts of the book are my favorites.  Pennywise the Clown is the ultimate King bad guy, scary, funny and the cause of some pretty cool nightmares involving clowns.

25 years later, Cemetery Dance Publications has produced a limited edition reprinting of "IT".  I purchased a copy of the signed, numbered edition (signed by King and the artists who produced the new cover and inside illustrations, Glen Orbik, Alan M. Clark and Erin Wells) and a copy of the unsigned, gift edition.  There is also a brand new afterward by King, detailing why he wrote the book.

Being a collector, I have many limited edition King books, from many different publishing houses.  Cemetery Dance does excellent work on their limited editions.  These are beautiful books, with a deluxe oversized design.  They are 7 inches by 10 inches.  The gift edition is slipcased with gold and red foil embossing on the brown case.  The limited is traycased in black with gold and red foil embossing.  The books themselves are beautiful too.  Full color wrap around artwork for the cover, by Glen Orbik.  

The inside pages are printed in 2 color, black and red for the regular pages and full color/black & white illustrations by Alan M. Clark and Erin S. Wells.  The signed edition has full color signature sheets, with exclusive color artwork.

These are some of the most beautiful limited editions that I own.  They are incredibly well crafted and designed.  The unique colored edge to every page, which has the page number and chapter name, is something I've never seen in a King limited edition before.  The books are huge and are made with incredible craftmanship.  They both are fine additions to any book collection.

The gift edition is still available for purchase from Cemetery Dance.
