The Stephen King Library Desk Calendar 2012 is now shipping from the Book-of-the-Month Club and they've really hit a home run again this year. The theme is The Dark Tower and the cover is a cool 3-D hologram, but the flat scan in this post doesn't really do the effect any justice.
Editor Jay Franco did another incredible job editing the calendar. He brought together a great group of contributors and they really cover a lot of ground, which is impressive considering how BIG a topic like The Dark Tower is!
Contributors include Matt Bergin, Peter Brett, Justin Brooks, Myke Cole, Matthew DeVirgiliis, Samantha Etkin, Jay Franco, Brian James Freeman, Robin Furth, Stephen Jewell, Daniel M. Kimmel, Fotini Marcopulos, Jon Oden, Micol Ostow, Tricia Pasternak, Rome Quezada, Jeff Somers, and Bev Vincent.
Here is the official sales copy from the Book-of-the-Month Club:
If you're a fan of Stephen King, chances are you avoid pet cemeteries, you have a healthy fear of clowns and when you think of the Man in Black, it isn't Johnny Cash who comes to mind. But there's so much more to the Master of Horror, and in our Club exclusive Stephen King Library Desk Calendar 2012, you get to spend a year inside his sinister universe. Packed with essays, juicy details and fascinating trivia, this year's calendar is also full of excerpts from all the Dark Tower books, articles from professionals he has influenced and more. Plus, it features quizzes—like Mid-World Word Trivia, which tests your knowledge of High Speech—and notes on the future of the series. This calendar is packed with so much, it's scary!
