PS Publishing in the UK creates gorgeous sturdy books that are true keepsakes. I’m proud to have quite a few of them on my bookshelf. The Publisher, Pete Crowther pays tremendous attention to detail on each edition ensuring the highest standard of production and artistic quality.
A PS book that I am especially interested in is coming out in the next few weeks. One of Stephen King’s finest short stories, ‘One For The Road’ will be released in a special landscape PS edition featuring 18 brand new full-page and full-color illustrations from James Hannah.
The Publisher describes the narrative of this haunting tale, a sequel of sorts to Stephen King’s bestselling novel, ‘Salem’s Lot’:
“This much-loved tale is narrated by Booth, an elderly resident of a small Maine town that neighbors the infamous Jerusalem’s Lot, and it takes place a couple of years after the events in King’s novel. Booth describes a winter’s night years ago, when he and his friend, a bar owner named Herb Tooklander (Tookey), receive a visit from a distressed motorist named Gerard Lumley, whose vehicle had become stranded in a ferocious blizzard . . . with his wife and daughter still inside. At first critical of Lumley for driving in such weather, both men are horrified when they realise that Lumley’s car is stranded in Jerusalem’s Lot, widely regarded to have ‘gone bad’. Nevertheless, they still decide to drive out in a snow plough and attempt to save Lumley’s family. Instead, they barely manage to save themselves.”
The limited edition book will be produced in two states: an unsigned jacketed 500-copy hardcover ($120) and a 100-copy slipcased hardcover signed by the artist ($280). Shipments will be in April.
600 copies is a very small print run for a Stephen King title and these will sell out fast. For more information about the book or to order directly, please click HERE.
