Suntup Editions Stephen King Finders Keepers Covers Collection Print By Sam Weber

Last month, Suntup Editions released a print of Sam Weber’s first edition cover art for the novel, Mr. Mercedes. This month, they present a second beautiful print from Sam Weber, the art from the first edition cover of Stephen King’s Finders Keepers.

Published on June 2, 2015, nearly one year after the release of Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers is the second novel in what would later be known as The Bill Hodges Trilogy. According to a 2014 tweet from Stephen King, the author had finished the first draft of Finders Keepers before Mr. Mercedes was even published. Sam Weber’s depiction of raining blood from the Mr. Mercedes cover carries over here, this time with an open book in the foreground, as the story centers around the murder of a reclusive writer.

All prints are hand-signed by Sam Weber. Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 40 signed copies per size, worldwide.

A Scanner Darkly Artist Gift Edition Book By Philip K. Dick Now Available For Pre-Order From Suntup Editions

Razor sharp in its depiction of drug-induced paranoia and madness, A Scanner Darkly by Philip K. Dick is as unnerving as it is riveting.

Set in a dystopian Orange County, California, in the then-future of June 1994, Substance D is the most toxic drug to ever find its way onto the streets. The drug destroys the links between the brain’s two hemispheres, causing, first, disorientation, and then irreversible brain damage. Bob Arctor is an undercover narcotics agent desperate to discover the ultimate source of supply, but to find any kind of lead he has to pose as a user, and inevitably, become one as addicted as those he works among.

First published in 1977, A Scanner Darkly received the 1978 BSFA Award for Best Novel, and the Graouilly d’Or Award upon the novel’s 1979 publication in France. In 2006,  writer/director Richard Linklater shot a live-action film, starring Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson, and Winona Ryder, and then animated over the underlying images creating an eerily lifelike and richly detailed animated film adaptation.

A Scanner Darkly is steeped in an insider’s knowledge of 1960s drug culture. Philip K. Dick once stated of the novel, “Everything in A Scanner Darkly, I actually saw.” Based largely on his own experiences and the many friends he met and lost along the way, A Scanner Darkly is Philip K. Dick’s deeply personal exploration on the fragility of identity, how we choose to define ourselves, and how easily that definition can be altered and obliterated.

– 6” x 9” trim size

Suntup Editions To Release Limited Edition Book of The Auctioneer By Joan Samson

One of the finest and bestselling horror novels of the 1970’s, Joan Samson’s The Auctioneer is a chilling masterpiece of terror. In an isolated New Hampshire farming community where little has changed over the past several decades, John Moore and his wife Mim do their best to maintain the family farm and live a modest, hardworking life. But from the moment the charismatic Perly Dinsmore arrives in town, soliciting donations for his auctions, the community of Harlowe slowly and insidiously starts to change. As the auctioneer carries out his terrible, inscrutable plan, the Moores and their neighbors will find themselves gradually but inexorably stripped of their freedom, their possessions, and perhaps even their lives.

Joan Samson

Upon its release in 1975, The Auctioneer was received with wide acclaim. Newsday hailed it “a suspenseful, engrossing novel with the most gripping and violent ending we’ve encountered for some time.” The Grand Rapids Press lauded it, “a powerful novel by a powerful author.” The New York Times called it, “explosive and chilling… I challenge anyone to resist it after reading the first few pages.”

Despite critical praise, sales of over a million copies, a popular television advertisement, and efforts to turn the novel into a film, The Auctioneer went out of print soon after its release and was considered a lost gem of a novel for subsequent decades. Written by a young, talented, and promising author, The Auctioneer would ultimately be Joan Samson’s only novel. Sadly, she passed away shortly after the book’s publication, edging the novel further into obscurity. The Auctioneer found its way back to print in 2018 in a trade edition, returning at last to chill a new generation of readers.

With echoes of Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery” and Stephen King’s Needful Things, Samson’s slow burn of understated violence builds to a climactic fever pitch with an ending that makes for one of the most unforgettable horror novels of all time.

The limited edition of The Auctioneer by Joan Samson is presented in three states: Lettered, Numbered and an Artist Gift.

Suntup Editions To Publish Signed Limited Edition of William Gibson’s Neuromancer

The definitive cyberpunk novel, William Gibson’s Neuromancer is a science-fiction masterpiece that ranks as one of the twentieth century’s most potent visions of the future. First published as a paperback original in 1984, several years before the Internet was commonplace, William Gibson showed us the Matrix — a world within the world, the representation of every byte of data in cyberspace. Neuromancer is the story of Henry Dorsett Case, once the sharpest data-thief in the Matrix, until an ex-employer crippled his nervous system. Now a new employer has recruited him for a last chance run against an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence.

Neuromancer was the first fully-realized glimpse of humankind’s digital future — a shocking vision that has challenged our assumptions about technology and ourselves, reinvented the way we speak and think, and forever altered the landscape of our imaginations.

William Gibson

The novel is the first in history to win the Nebula, the Hugo, and the Philip K. Dick Award for paperback original, and the Mail & Guardian described this achievement as “the sci-fi writer’s version of winning the Goncourt, Booker, and Pulitzer in the same year.”  By 2007, it had sold more than 6.7 million copies, and it remains one of the most honored works of science-fiction in recent history. Time magazine included it on their list of 100 Best English-Language Novels Written Since 1923, remarking, “There is no way to overstate how radical Neuromancer was when it first appeared.”

Neuromancer has had a significant linguistic influence, inventing and defining language ten years before it became mainstream, much of which we still use today. The novel popularized such terms as “cyberspace” and “matrix.” It correctly predicted “hactivism” as well as the need for a form of “search” long before we knew what a vital role Google would play in our everyday lives.

Neuromancer ushers us into a dystopian world, exposing the dark side of a culture inextricably linked to computer technology with a keen prophecy that endures. 

About The Edition

The signed limited edition of Neuromancer by William Gibson is presented in two states and is limited to two hundred and seventy-six copies. The edition measures 6” x 9” and includes six illustrations by Billy Norrby. Included is the author’s introduction from the trade edition, and both editions are signed by William Gibson and Billy Norrby.

Numbered Edition ($575)

The Numbered edition of 250 copies is a quarter Japanese cloth binding with premium paper boards. The cover is foil stamped in silver and endsheets are Hahnemühle Bugra. The edition is printed offset on Cougar Natural, and is housed in a capped slipcase enclosure, covered in Japanese cloth and a unique carbon black material. The edition is signed by William Gibson and Billy Norrby.

Demand for our Numbered editions has been far greater than the available supply. We have taken action to increase print runs on future titles, and you can read more about that here. Please be aware that there is a chance that this edition may only be available for purchase through a lottery when it opens up for public pre-order.

Suntup Editions The Covers Collection Nightmares & Dreamscapes (U.K.) Print By Paul Bryn Davies

Suntup Editions presents another stunning cover by British artist Paul Bryn Davies. Previously, they released prints of Davies’ iconic covers for Stephen King’s IT, Misery, The Dark Half, and The Dark Half (Alternate Cover). 

Now Suntup offers the art that appeared on the 1st U.K. hardcover edition of Nightmares & Dreamscapes.

Published in 1993, Nightmares & Dreamscapes was Stephen King’s third short story collection, featuring twenty-five short stories, five of which were previously unpublished. Of the many iconic King covers Paul Bryn Davies has worked on, Nightmares & Dreamscapes required the most work. Davies created a total of fourteen potential cover illustrations for King’s U.K. publishers at Hodder & Stoughton. In the end, they went with the very first illustration he submitted. This artwork can now be enjoyed for the first time without cover text as a beautiful giclée print.

All prints are hand-signed by Davies, who continues his series of beautiful remarques with this print. Usually, remarques are reserved only for the first 20 large print subscribers, but Davies decided to also remarque the first 20 small prints.

Suntup Editions Limited Edition Let The Right One In By John Ajvide Lindqvist

To Oskar, there is something strange and wondrous about Eli, the girl who has never seen a Rubik’s Cube but can solve it within hours. The girl who only comes out at night.

Suntup Editions To Release The Fine Press Limited Edition Book 1984 By George Orwell 

Originally published on June 8, 1949, George Orwell’s 1984 is a dystopian masterpiece of tremendous influence and enduring relevance. Orwell’s nightmare vision for 1984 is of a totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and the Thought Police, which persecute independent thinking. Orwell’s world is one in which the news is manufactured by the authorities, no one is free, and individuality is obsolete.

George Orwell

1984 was the ninth and final book George Orwell completed in his lifetime.  Parallels have been drawn between its subject matter and real-life instances of totalitarianism, communism, mass surveillance, and violations of freedom of expression. The novel uses several terms that have entered common usage in the English language including Big Brother, doublethink and thoughtcrime.

American literary critic Lionel Trilling said of Orwell’s classic, “1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present.”

The novel has been included in Time magazine’s 100 Best English-Language Novels, the Modern Library’s 100 Best Novels, and on the BBC’s list of the 100 Most Influential Novels. On January 25, 2017, the book broke new ground when it suddenly appeared at the #1 spot on Amazon’s bestseller list, an unheard-of occurrence for a book published 68 years prior.

Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwell’s novel remains an urgent call to become aware of the assaults on our personal freedoms, and to defend humankind’s most precious right: the freedom to have our own thoughts.

About The Editions

The fine press limited edition of 1984 by George Orwell is presented in three states: Lettered, Numbered and Artist Gift editions. The editions measure 6” x 9” and feature seventeen full color illustrations by Hugo Award-winning artist Jim Burns as well as an introduction by New York Times bestselling author Joe Hill.

The edition is printed letterpress on Mouldmade Zerkall paper, and is housed in a Japanese cloth enclosure with a clear acrylic front panel. The edition is signed by Joe Hill and Jim Burns. ($2,950)

The Numbered edition of 250 copies is a full paste paper binding with papers handpainted by Marie Kelzer. The cover and spine include a foil stamped label, and endsheets are Canson Ingress.
