Just to clarify. The book King will be publishing is the one with the working title Lisey's Story and an excerpt from that one can be found in McSweeney's Enchanted Chamber of Astonishing Stories which you can order here.

Thanks to Rocky wood and Monday Lad.

There will be a limited edition of Transgressions (with King's story The Things They Left Behind in) by Ed McBain. I have no info on whether it'll be signed or not but the price is $200 and you can pre-order it here.

Thanks to Bev Vincent.
