CD put out an update on Blockade Billy. Here are the bullets in a nutshell:

- Print run is in the low 5 digits (I'm going to guess at 15,000-30,000)
- They are 50% sold out
- A 2nd print run will happen, but will not contain the baseball card extra
- Only the 2nd editions will be released to large chain stores

Lonely Road Books has announced the S/L. 350 copies of the limited at $450 each and 52 lettered at $1250 each. Their letter is below...........



Hi everyone!


I'm pleased to officially announce that Lonely Road Books is producing a deluxe signed Limited Edition of Blockade Billy, which will be published later this summer.

Due to the high demand for this title and the VERY low print run (among the lowest for a Stephen King Limited Edition in many years), Cemetery Dance is going to be selling the available copies for us via a "random drawing."

This has been the standard practice for some other presses dealing in Stephen King Limited Editions and it seems like the most fair way to sell this small of a print run. Every interested collector gets "one entry" and has the same chance of winning the right to purchase one copy of the Limited Edition or the Lettered Edition.

So you don't have to watch the website at a specific time and hope to get lucky with timing your order just right, etc. It doesn't matter where in the world you live or when you work or if you're going to be away for a day. Every collector has the same chance to purchase a copy for their collection.

There is absolutely no cost to enter this random drawing, but by entering you are committing to purchase a copy if your name is selected. Please read all of the details on our website, including limitation and pricing, before you enter yourself in the drawing.

You can visit www.LonelyRoadBooks.com for complete details.

Neat.
Am not at all fond of the idea of a lottery nor the prices wanted for the book by Lonely Road.
But, as the completists always say...I'll probably enter it anyway.

Well, I ordered the numbered edition. I can't afford the lettered. I think it's a bit high, but, given the relatively low print run, I think it will at least hold its value.

I've finished my reading of the ARC. I have to admit that it wasn't quite what I expected (but what King story is?) but it was rather interesting. Definitely worth the $25 price of the trade hc. My only real complaint is that it was too short. It left me wanting more!

Can you tell me how many pages is the book ? I'm starting to be too curious :)

Total pagination is 112 pages. This, however, includes three or four full-page illustrations. No chapter breaks.
