Lonely Road Books has announced the upcoming publication of Riding The Bullet: The Deluxe Special Edition Double by Stephen King and Mick Garris. This exclusive Limited Edition will be published later this year as a Slipcased Gift Edition, a Traycased Limited Edition signed by Mick Garris and Bernie Wrightson, and a Traycased Lettered Edition signed by King, Wrightson, and Garris.
Riding the Bullet by Stephen King has been described as a “ghost story in the grand manner” and the story of “a young man who hitches a ride with a driver from the other side,” but in this special edition only available from Lonely Road Books, we’re going to show you King’s classic novella in a way you’ve never seen it before: alongside the feature film screenplay adaptation by director Mick Garris.
The road from print to the silver screen is often a bumpy one and much has been written about how a story is sometimes transformed to make it work in moving pictures. This is your chance to experience Riding the Bullet in a way only those close to the production of the film ever have. Start with King’s original novella, then flip the book over and read the original script by Mick Garris. Compare what he kept, what he had to change, and even the storytelling flourishes he added to round out the tale.
This collectible special edition will be published in the same manner as our acclaimed edition of The Arthur Darknell Double — in the tradition of the old Ace Doubles. The hardcover will feature the complete text of King’s original novella and Garris’s screenplay, plus exclusive artwork by Bernie Wrightson, storyboards, photos from the set, production notes, hand-corrected script pages, and more from the “Director’s Notebook” kept during the movie’s production.
