The announcement from Sub Press:

This year will be a bonanza for Stephen King’s many fans, with no fewer than four collectible editions of his work being published.
They include:
  • The Shining, which we’ll be doing our darndedst to make one of the best King editions yet. The Limited and Lettered are both sold out, but you can still preorder the Gift  Edition for a limited time.
  • Doctor Sleep, the seqel to The Shining, which is coming from Cemetery Dance. We’ve locked in a limited number of copies of the Gift edition of this one for our customers, but don’t expect copies to last long.
In addition, our friends at PS Publishing will be releasing two Anniversary King Editions with facsimile signatures, and print runs projected to be as low as 300-400 copies.
  • Christine-Featuring, among a good deal of original art, a brand new introduction by Ramsey Campbell.
  • Pet Sematary-This time around, Michael Marshall Smith is helming the intro. It, too, will include original art.

The Doctor Sleep edition was announced on Tuesday (February 5th) and almost immediately sold out of both the Limited and Lettered editions, according to StephenKingCollector.com.
