    Fantastic!!! Good to see some pics, I was wondering about which book you'd sent to Mr. King and this is absolutely a prize item

    Woohoo!! I am so glad that made it to you and I was just wondering how it all came down.

    I'm always glad when it goes to a true King fan.

    INFO:

    This is a Grant Trade Gunslinger 1st Edition

    The book is Fine in an almost perfect Dust Jacket and as you can see it is in an after market slipcase which is as new.

    It is signed by Donald Grant; signed, inscribed and doodled by Michael Whelan; signed, inscribed and dated by Stephen King.




    Sorry, but I don't know how to make the pictures bigger...these don't do the book justice. If it can be done by any of the mods then please feel free to do so or, if you can advise me how, I can post them in the 'Pride and Joy' thread if needed. I've also tried to download the pictures to my Gallery album but for some reason they won't load. I'd be more than willing to send pictures in a email, so if anyone is interested please contact me and I'll be happy to oblige.

    There are a number of people without whom this would not have been possible and I would like to extend my most sincere thanks to all involved...

    ...Matt and all you guys at TDT who organised the signing with SK...my very good friends at DMG, Marsha De Fillipo, David Williamson (Wiz), Michael Whelan and of course Stephen King himself.

    My apologies if I've missed anyone.

    Thanks again
    Alex-

    Was glad to give the assist on the Whelan signature and doodle. I think his inscription is CLASSIC, playing off of King's the way it does. Wish I had that in MY collection.

    Well done! A REAL Gem!!

    Dragline : Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.

    Thanks to all for your comments...they are much appreciated.

    I was wondering...the monetary value of the book is not important to me...but I am curious to hear if anyone knows of any other 'Gunslingers' which have been signed by all 3 of Grant, King and Whelan.

    Anyone?
