I am taking some delight in having managed to track down one of the Limited Edition slipcased versions of Stephen King’s short and rather sweet crime novel for Hard Case Crime, Joyland.

 

I have been lucky enough to end up with no. 560 of an edition of just 724 copies.

 

The cover for just this Limited Edition is by the legendary pulp-fiction book cover artist Robert McGinnis.
