I’ve been teasing this project on Facebook for a few months and today it can finally be revealed!

Dave Hinchberger of The Overlook Connection Press has been working with artist Glenn Chadbourne to produce a series of new dust jackets for Stephen King’s novels. Each cover is limited to 500 copies and singed by Mr. Chadbourne. Each jacket also includes a new essay from King-world authors ranging from Rocky WoodStephen Spignesi, Bev Vincent and even Anthrax’s Scott Ian.

Guess who was asked to write the jacket text for Sai King’s Dreamcatcher. Yes, yours truly!

Let’s just say it was the most difficult and fun writing assignment I’ve ever had the honor of completing. The fact that it had to come in at approximately 450 words, was a challenge all on its own.

You can see all the covers currently available @ and check out my contribution specifically there too.

Me, I’ll be framing one of my copies just as soon as it arrives.

And Dave, thanks for asking and having enough faith in me to give me the chance to participate in this project.

Recently I’ve been working on setting up a ton of public access PCs and getting all of the systems to talk to each other when it comes to our ILS, printing software, and computer time management. All of this deals with software “types” I’m familiar with due to my 2003 book The Neal-Schuman Directory of Management Software for Public Access Computers, co-written with my friend Louise Alcorn. Granted, none of the software I’m using today even existed back then, but the issues haven’t changed all that much.
