    Plus if I find some cool stuff that I don't know about. Will check eBay and maybe add to this list.
    I think that's about it. If I can get some of those, then I will see if want any others.
    JUST TO BE CLEAR, I DON"T MEAN THIS YEAR (2016). THIS IS MY OVERALL WISHLIST. I am not that well healed
    So that's it. I know many people here have many more then that. Once I get Carrie, Salems' Lot I will have all the First ed I want (EDIT: Now have both of those). Then I might work on some of the other Limited or just some others with an autograph. Thanks for looking.

    That's an admirable collection! You certainly have more high-end books than I do (I don't own any books signed by King). I'm looking forward to some pics of your bookshelves and to your participation in the discussions.

    Thanks Biomieg. The signed ones are interesting. The first one I bought was The Drawing of the Three. When I bought it I did not know it was a true S\L. I just thought it was a regular signed book. Then I was able to find books III-VII in one set. So I paid over time and eventually got them. I was also able to get a good first ed Gunslinger. After I registered my books I was able to get LSOE so I bought both the S\L and Art ed. The Night Shift I have on Lay away is singed also. I am not buying it becasue it is signed I am buying it becasue I hardly see an Night Shift books for sale. The Under the Dome was just a signed copy from the publisher.

    OK OK. I get the hints. I will put some up this weekend. Who would of thought that buying Christine would put me on a path to being a King Collector. That was way back in 2006. I have been collecting ever since. I had the 1990's nailed down on my own but the years before that I had to rely on eBay and private dealers. Also some it the early 2000's I had to get from dealers.

    I changed the two ARC's to Promo(for Promotional). I found out with the help of Jhanic that what I thought were proofs were something else. I am going to try and verify what they really are.
    EDIT: I think my Dead Zone may also be a "Promo" copy. I will check tonight.

    Here is one shelf. In the following pictures you may not be able to see every book I have listed because of where my book case is located but you can see enough of them to get the point.

    Thanks. It's kind of cool to hear some one say "I've never seen the review copies of those books before" on this site . I am sure though that the "value" is not that much more then a first ed of the book. But it's still cool to have something like that in my collection.

    Thanks for the welcome. I am nothing if not persistant. For some of them I.E Fire Starter, The Dead Zone and Eyes of the Dragon, I did not jump at the first ones I saw. Some of them had dust jakets that looked like they were eaten. I was willing to wait until I saw what I wanted. Cujo was the first book I bought back in 2006 when I decided that I wanted to start collecting. I have been building ever since.
