Book News Originally published in a limited edition (3,000) by Popular Culture, Ink in mid-1991, at a price of $110. Those who held off at that price might reconsider purchase at $35. "Encyclopedia" implies some sort of organization; this work is more accurately an exuberantly obsessed compendium. It contains essays, fiction, and poems by people associated with King, commenting on his work and personality; annotated indexes to characters, film adaptations, and unpublished works; concordances; interviews; and photographs.
