Stephen King’s 1987 psychological thriller is set to be reissued as limited editions with help from artist Rick Berry.

Inspired by moments in his own life where fans have been unhappy with his work- King wrote his protagonist, Paul Sheldon, as a writer famous for Victorian-era romance novels. After a nasty car crash the author is rescued by crazed fan Annie Wilkes, who takes him to her house and forces him to write a new book in order to modify the story to her own tastes.

The reissue of the novel will be music to King’s fans’ ears, giving them an opportunity to own something truly special.

Audiobooks on… Vinyl?

By | Literature, News, Reading Formats | No Comments
Author Joe Hill (Strange Weather), has always had a hankering for the rock star life but the life of an author is far from rock and roll. Instead Hill has decided to come up with some other way of creating his own vinyl LP- by recording an audiobook instead of an album!

The vinyl recording will be narrated by actor Nate Corddry, and will feature a special cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses,” recorded specifically for the record. The Dark Carousel vinyl package will include original artwork (see below), two colourful special edition records, and a full-length download of the audiobook.

The first vinyl printing of Hill’s Dark Carousel will be for a limited 2,500 copies, and will be out on the 20th of April.

Keep an eye out here at For Reading Addicts for where to pre-order yours.
