In the book's new forward, SK talks about the nearly 400 pages they had to remove from the first run. Well, this version has them all back. A lot of the new material has to do with character backgrounds and such.



Is there more material in it than what was in the "complete and uncut" version that was put out in the 90s? I think it was around 95 when I read it, so I'll have to pick up a new copy and see what's up. Of course- I don't remember details from so long ago, so it will probably all seem new to me lol.


I believe the edition you mentioned and the one I am reading now are one in the same. So, you have already read this one. In the forward, SK mentions there is more he may in the future add to make another edition. I think at that point he would be over doing it.

I'm finally getting around to reading some Philip K. Dick. Starting with Man in the High Castle. I'm also listening to the audiobook of Brandon Sanderson's The Way of Kings. The third volume of his Stormlight Archive is scheduled to release in November. Finally! So instead of rereading the first two books, I decided to checkout the audiobooks.

I really like to listen to audio books while I am working. I have a hard time listening to radio stations playing the same 5 songs over and over mixed with a crap-ton of commercials.

You should check out the Overdrive app then. If you have a public library card, you can checkout ebooks, audiobooks and videos. I've listened to about a dozen or more now in the last few months and most audiobooks these days are upwards 25-30 bucks a pop.

I'm reading Preston and Child's Blue Labyrinth. I really enjoy their Pendergast series and this is the latest.

I'm on a Twilight Zone (80's) binge and noticed that a few episodes are actually written by George RR Martin!

I'm reading a book called Meddling Kids. Its an homage to Scooby Doo and the Famous 5 and is basically like "what happened when those crime busting kids grew up." Its also very Lovecrafty and very Stranger Things-esque. I also interviewed the author recently and wrote an article about the book so would you kindly go read that https://www.retrozap.com/interview-with-edgar-cantero-author-of-meddling-kids-2017/
