CARRIE: The 40th Anniversary Edition: A NOVEL by Stephen King; PUBLICATION DATE: April 2014; EDITION: Signed, Slipcased Jacketed Hardcover; COVER, ENDPAPER and ALL INTERIOR ART: Glenn Chadbourne; PRINT RUN: 974; Signed by Glenn Chadbourne, James Lovegrove and Kim Newman, plus a facsimile signature from Stephen King; INTRODUCTION: James Lovegrove; AFTERWORD: Kim Newman; Carrie, a brand-new blustering debut novel about a put-upon girl with menstrual problems written by a young wannabe writer, was indeed a humble beginning. And it was a big chance for its publisher. Carrie was written on King's wife Tabitha's portable typewriter while the couple and their then two children were living in a trailer. It started life as a short story intended for Cavalier magazine, but King dumped the first three pages. Fortunately, his wife noticed the pages in the trash and fished them out, advising her husband to go on and finish the tale . . . but he went one step better: he expanded it into a novel. Thank God! (or Should isay Mr and Mrs King)
