Stephen King "From a Buick 8" Sweepstakes!


Remember, we've got a ton of fantastic Stephen King items for sale in our Stephen King section!

As you may know, Cemetery Dance Publications is publishing the deluxe limited edition of Stephen King's new novel, From a Buick 8. However, even though it's being produced in three formats (an unsigned gift version of only 1750 copies, a signed and traycased "Limited" edition of only 750 copies, and a Deluxe "Lettered" edition of only 52 copies) all versions have sold out, and we do not expect to be getting copies in for sale.

However, all hope is not lost. Simply by joining our email subscription list and sending us an email, you can be entered into a drawing for a FREE copy of the traycased, signed, deluxe limited edition (of which only 750 signed copies will exist).

That's right -- nothing to purchase, nothing to do except sign up for our newsletter and drop us an email.

Here's the deal -- before September 25th, 2002 at 11:59 PM EST, you need to do TWO things. If you don't do either one, you will not be entered in the random drawing.

1) Sign up for our newsletter of great deals, exclusive coupon codes and product news, which is sent out 1-2 times a week. At the time of the random drawing, between October 5th and October 10th, you MUST be on our newsletter email list. If you're already signed up for our newsletter, proceed to step 2. Otherwise, click the button below to sign up for our newsletter:


2) Signing up for our newsletter is not enough. Between August 27th, 2002, 11:59 EST and September 25th, 2002, 11:59 EST, you MUST send an email to with this information:

Subject line of email: Buick 8

Information in body of email:
  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone Number
  • Age
Please be aware that NONE of this information will ever be sold or distributed to anyone, or used by for any purpose other than contacting the winner.

Only one entry per customer. That's why we're requiring the email -- to make sure people don't sign up over and over again until dummy emails, etc. You must be at least 18 years old to enter. We reserve the right to ask for legal identification from the winner confirming that they ARE indeed the person they claimed to be in the email.

That's it! Sorry, but this is void where prohibited by law. We'll do a random drawing sometime between October 5th and October 10th and announce the winner. Make sure to check out the official rules below for all the gory details (damn small print).

Publisher description of the book:

For twenty years the officers in Pennsylvania State Police Barracks have kept a secret in SHED B. A vintage Buick which lures the troopers to come and take a look. Now young Ned Wilcox, son of Officer Curt Wilcox, has started hanging around the Barracks. One day he can't resist peeking through the windows... and it's finally time to share the secret. So the veteran troopers sit Ned down on the smoking bench and tell him the story -- every skin-curdling detail...

Illustrated by the legendary Bernie Wrightson (artist for The Stand and Cycle of the Werewolf), this Cemetery Dance special edition will feature unique binding and endpapers, oversized design, and amazing artwork (both full-color and black-and-white interiors by Wrightson).
