“In Mint Condition”
It is a phrase that has become very familiar to collectors. Whether you are a collector of fine books, antique watches, baseball cards, or comic books, you are always looking for something in mint condition. To be in mint condition, that special something must be of the highest quality. The best of the best.
Taking that idea and running with it, Ambannon Books has collected the very best in brand new, never-before-seen short stories, creative nonfiction, poems, and artwork from the members of the leading Stephen King fansite on the internet, TheDarkTower.org.
Join us on a journey through sixteen stories and poems of unspeakable horrors, inspirational bravery, alternate realities, and the dark side of things that seem so familiar, yet are simply waiting to consume you.
In Mint Condition: 2013 will be released in two editions: A Trade Paperback Edition will be available for $9.99, and a Signed, Limited Hardcover Edition will be available for $49.99. The hardcover edition will be limited to 100 numbered copies only, will feature brand new dustjacket artwork, and will be signed by the editor.
A portion of the proceeds from the Signed, Limited Hardcover Edition will be donated to the Haven Foundation in the name of TheDarkTower.org and Ambannon Books. The Haven Foundation gives financial assistance to provide temporary support needed to safeguard and sustain the careers of established freelance artists, writers and other members of the arts and art production communities who have suffered disabilities or experienced a career-threatening illness, accident, natural disaster or personal catastrophe.
