Listings updated for August + Win FREE copies of The Institute & other news

All listings have been updated for August, take a look around for great deals on your favorite Stephen King books! Also check out the other news and updates for this month:

Secure Domains - Both the and domains now have SSL certificates set up and all pages have had any old code tweaked to be fully compliant. This means that if you visit either domain you will automatically redirect to "httpS://" instead of "http://" and if you have any old links they will auto redirect to an "httpS" URL. Additionally depending on your browser you will see a green or black lock icon indicating the site is secure. Most sites have already moved to getting this setup on their domains for better security, and I’m happy to say that The Collector can now join that field.

Identification pages - The Identifying US 1st editions page hadn’t been updated for a number of years, it is now up-to-date! I’ve also pre-filled in fields for upcoming known titles and will get those filled in as soon as the books are released. I would like to update the Identifying UK 1st editions page as well, but since I don’t collect the books personally, if anyone is willing to take the time to email me with the identifiers for the missing books I would love to put them up.

Night Shift - The long overdue Info and Buying pages for the PS Publishing version of Night Shift are now up! There are a couple other PS Publishing titles that need to go live as well, they’re on my list but Night Shift was the most requested so it’s first.

Forums on Mobile – No one said anything, but I was looking at some site analytics earlier this year and it looks like a huge number of you guys are visiting the site from mobile devices, mainly iPhones. Although the site in general wasn’t designed with mobile in mind I think it functions OK for most sections…but not the forums. I tried browsing the forums from my phone and it was a pretty poor experience. I think it explains (in part) why there isn’t more activity on the forums.Well, I’m happy to say that the forum template has been re-coded to accommodate all mobile traffic MUCH better, but especially if you’re checking out the forums on your phone.

Free copies of The Institute! - This brings me to my last point. A forum can’t thrive without people visiting it regularly, so to encourage folks to visit, I’ll be giving away 5 copies of Stephen King’s upcoming Novel The Institute, which drops on September 10th - Each week for the next 5 weeks I’ll list a thread I’d like you to contribute to in the forums, make a post and I will then randomly pick one of the posts to get their free copy. Since we’re only averaging 2-5 posts per week right now I’d say your chances of wining are pretty darn high at the moment. Full details along with the first weeks thread to contribute to can be found HERE

it appears that Subterranean Press produced a not-for-sale edition of The Shining back in 2014 that was limited to just 10 copies. Their intent was to auction off a copy on an annual basis, until they were all sold. It didn't quite work out, and Camelot Books has acquired the remaining 6 copies. They are making 4 of the 6 available for sale. Now you won't see mention of it on their website yet, you need to be a newsletter subscriber. But I've posted the text of the full announcement up on the forums.

Cemetery Dance just announced Gwendy's Magic Feather, which looks to be a sequel to Gwendy's Button Box.

Full details and ordering can be found here.
