Can you believe it's almost ROCKtober!? Man.. my favorite time of year! Our boy is a freshman and playing in the high school marching band, hanging out on Friday nights listening to the band blaring, watching the boys in football kickin' butt and taking names.
We have an exciting new book in stock by probably the most famous movie poster artist ever. The Art of Drew Struzan is especially interesting to us Stephen King fans because of all the artwork included in this volume on The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption, and an extra large gallery of The Mist artwork. Much of this art has never been seen before. Director Frank Darabont, of all these films, has signed some special gate-fold cards with The Shawshank Redemption poster art (by Struzan of course) with a photo of Frank Darabont on the Green Mile set inside (taken by me). This card comes with our copies of the Art of Drew Struzan and you can order it below.
The Dark Tower Journey Begins 2: Sheemie's Tale No. 1 is beginning in November. We're taking orders for it now.
The last issue of The Dark Tower Journey Begins 1 has just arrived and going out this week. You can now order the complete set here and at the Overlook.
Peter Straub's THE GREEN WOMAN signed edition is about 70% sold out. Please check in soon if you'd like to reserve a copy.
That's it this week and I'll be back next week with more news and updates.
Y'all keep on Shining out there :-)

He possesses the awesome power to shatter the very Beams that hold the Dark Tower in place-the fulcrum of existence itself. But Sheemie does not want to destroy the underpinnings of reality. He is in the prison of Devar-Toi and all he wants is his friends-his ka-tet to come for him. And one of them is coming for him even now. One of them known as the last gunslinger, Roland Deschain. And not all the horrors of Thunderclap will stand in his way! Presented by those twin titans of Marvel's Dark Tower books-writer Robin Furth and artist Richard Isanove.
