Update on The Exorcist: The 40th Anniversary Revised Limited Edition by William Peter Blatty

Here is the latest update on The Exorcist: The 40th Anniversary Revised Limited Edition by William Peter Blatty that Lonely Road Books will be publishing later this year:

The book is now designed and being proofread, and we’re still right on track for a summer publication date.

The Exorcist: The 40th Anniversary Revised Limited Edition

As I mentioned last time, I originally planned on printing 6 color artwork plates in this special edition, but Caniglia went overboard and turned in 13 (!) color pieces, so I’m breaking the budget and adding all of them to the book. You can never have too much Caniglia artwork in a beautiful special edition like this one.

In addition, Mr. Blatty has provided an introduction and an afterword that won’t be appearing in any other edition of the book, so even though the Lonely Road Books special edition is long sold out, those essays have been added as unannounced bonus features.

Finally, there is also a special unannounced bonus for the Lettered Edition customers: because Caniglia turned in so much extra artwork, there will be entirely different artwork on the Lettered Edition’s dust jacket instead of the same artwork that will be appearing on the Limited Edition as originally planned.

I’ll post more news as I have it, but you can also always email me if you have any questions. Thanks, as always, for your support!

      I have the feeling he had a lot of fun working on this project because the artwork just kept coming! 🙂

    Thanks for the surprise update Brian! This will be a true collectible!

    I wore my Dark Tower t-shirt to work today (Casual Friday) and all the King fans went nuts. Everyone else was trying to remember where a wacky looking tower appeared in the Hunger Games Trilogy .

    CD Rocks!!
