The New Lieutenant's Rap
Publisher:Philtrum Press
Publication Date: April 1999
Limitation: 500
Original Price:
Illustrator:Michael Alpert
No. pages: 24

The New Lieutenant's Rap was given out at the 25th Anniversary of Carrie on April 6, 1999. It was never offered for sale to the general public, and the value of this book depends on whether it includes just the book, trivia quiz, or the peace necklace and envelope. Approximately 28-42 copies were left on the table and thrown out by staff that night. King was so disgusted that he took the remaining 380+ copies and placed them in his office safe in Bangor, Maine where they remain today.
