The book contains these stories: 'Autopsy Room Four', 'Blind Willie', 'L.T.'s Theory Of Pets', 'Luckey Quarter', 'Lunch at the Gotham Cafe' and 'The Man in the Black Suit'. This is the only edition of this book. Michael Alpert, who produced and oversaw the production of this title is similar in production value as Philtrum Press's Eyes of the Dragon edition utilizing a similar paper. Stephen King went in the opposite direction from all the lavishly produced limited editions put out by other publishers by having this book issued in self-wraps (a deep brownish-mauvish-purplish dustjacket attached at the spine over plain off-white card stock covers), with his name and the book's title printed in simple white lettering on the front panel and the spine. Because there were so few issued and because it is a softcover book instead of a hardcover, with the text and the covers the same size, it is unusual to find a copy in excellent condition. This edition is unread.
