Stephen King’s Gunslinger Print Commission By Lyndon Willougby

Dallas based Graphic Designer Lyndon Willougby created this fantastic poster paying homage to Stephen King’s epic novel, The Gunslinger. The limited edition print measures 12 x 36 with 3 colors and will be printed by Lady Lazarus in Houston, TX. Sadly this was a private commission and not available to the general public but I still wanted to promote this exceptional piece.

Lyndon shared that he has read the entire series twice and was disappointed that The Dark Tower does not get the print love it deserves so he wanted to take a stab at it. Job well done!

Stephen King, most recently, of “Finders Keepers” has never read Jane Austen. “I do not say this with either pride or shame (or prejudice, for that matter). It’s just a fact.”

Read what else the prolific author has to say about his favorite novelist, who would be invited to a literary dinner, his most personal novel and lots more.

Cover Reveal For Stephen King’s The Bazaar of Bad Dreams

bobd-cover-reveal-5

A master storyteller at his best—the O. Henry Prize winner Stephen King delivers a generous collection of stories in his upcoming book The Bazaar of Bad Dreams. Several of the stories are brand-new, featuring revelatory autobiographical comments on when, why, and how he came to write (or rewrite) each story.

Since his first collection, Nightshift, published thirty-five years ago, Stephen King has dazzled readers with his genius as a writer of short fiction. In this new collection he assembles, for the first time, recent stories that have never been published in a book. He introduces each with a passage about its origins or his motivations for writing it.

There are thrilling connections between stories; themes of morality, the afterlife, guilt, what we would do differently if we could see into the future or correct the mistakes of the past. “Afterlife” is about a man who died of colon cancer and keeps reliving the same life, repeating his mistakes over and over again. Several stories feature characters at the end of life, revisiting their crimes and misdemeanors. Other stories address what happens when someone discovers that he has supernatural powers—the columnist who kills people by writing their obituaries in “Obits;” the old judge in “The Dune” who, as a boy, canoed to a deserted island and saw names written in the sand, the names of people who then died in freak accidents. In “Morality,” King looks at how a marriage and two lives fall apart after the wife and husband enter into what seems, at first, a devil’s pact they can win.

Magnificent, eerie, utterly compelling, these stories comprise one of King’s finest gifts to his constant reader—“I made them especially for you,” says King. “Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.”

The 512 page hardcover will be released on November 3, 2015.

Hard Case Crime To Release Stephen King’s Joyland Illustrated Limited Edition On September 8, 2015

cover

Hard Case Crime, the award-winning line of pulp-styled crime novels from editor Charles Ardai and publisher Titan Books, announced today that on September 8, 2015 they will publish a new illustrated hardcover edition of their bestselling title of all time, Stephen King’s Joyland. The acclaimed coming-of-age story set in a possibly haunted small-town amusement park spent more than 25 weeks on the New York Times Best-Seller List in paperback and ebook format. Aside from certain extremely limited editions for collectors, however, no hardcover edition of the book has ever been published.

The new edition will feature a brand new cover painting by popular Hard

Case Crime artist Glen Orbik, whose other covers for the series include books by Gore Vidal and Michael Crichton; a map of the Joyland amusement park illustrated in the classic ‘mapback’ style by Susan Hunt Yule; and more than twenty interior illustrations by acclaimed artists Robert McGinnis, Mark Summers and Pat Kinsella.

Since its publication, Joyland has won raves worldwide. The Washington Post called it “a moving, immensely appealing coming-of-age tale” while Canada’s National Post called it “a small marvel of a book, a novel of loss and heartbreak, of growth and discovery…one of the writer’s finest works.” Entertainment Weekly called it “some of King’s most graceful writing”; the New York Times wrote, “The book delivers chills [and] a mournful sense of life’s fragility”; and the Guardian in the U.K. called it “a far gentler, deeper, more thoughtful book…and all the more intriguing for it.”
