So, what do you all think about this? Has anyone heard of this before?
While not unheard of, it's rarely done. Stephen King added a good bit of stuff to The Stand, back in 89-90. He also re-editied the the first in The Gunslinger series as well as some minor additions.
Harlan Ellison just released his second novel ever published and out of print for decades, and added I think 100 new pages as well as redoing the whole thing.
Oh and King also released a revised Salem's Lot a few years ago as well, with new material, and an appendices of about 50 pages of excerpts and cuts that were made from the original.
