King, Stephen: 


IMG 6918

The author that started it all for us in terms of collecting. We view 'The Stand' as his best work and probably one of the greatest books written. This is the stunning ‘Coffin Box’ signed/limited edition which is a must have for any collection. 

Whilst we obviously hold King in high regard, we don’t read any of his current or 21st century books as these don’t seem to have the magic of his earlier works. This is true even for The Dark Tower series - it started with such promise.

PS Publishing Limited Editions:

An ongoing series published as limited editions signed by the artists. They are something! Both PS Publishing and Cemetery Dance started issuing anniversary editions of King’s classics around the same time. You can’t buy everything so we made our choice and stuck with PS Publishing. Each book is slipcased and has stunning artwork throughout. We are particularly happy with Salem’s Lot which was split into three novella-length standalone volumes each with specially commissioned jacket artwork, containing the associated short stories as well.

King (07) King (09) King (08)

 'On a brisk autumn day, a twelve-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: his father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America--and into another realm.

One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery. Jack Sawyer, on a desperate quest to save his mother's life, must search for a prize across an epic landscape of innocents and monsters, of incredible dangers and even more incredible truths. The prize is essential, but the journey means even more. Let the quest begin. . .

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place... The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain?

Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women's prison, Sleeping Beauties is a wildly provocative, gloriously absorbing father/son collaboration between Stephen King and Owen King.
