    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Poor Mike, he just spent his last nickle on books!

    You guys are great . I will keep trying though. And I didn't spend my last nickle. I just need to save a few more before I can get anything else. So much for me staying away. I should have known that was not going to happen.

    Ordered new stuff. Dave is the best. I got The Shining S\L WITH A EXTRA SLIPCASE AND DJ. I also got a S\L Dr.Sleep with a full page colored remarque of Rose the Hat and I got a Talisman US uncorrected proof. So yea, I went a little nuts. Plus I ordered 3 cases from The Collector. I got 11/22/63, Salems' Lot and Under the Dome. Looking forward to getting my new stuff. Pics of course, and maybe some pics of older stuff.

    Thanks. I make no apologies . Although some people may think I have gone crazy . I learned one thing. If you see something, and you have the means to get it, get it because it may not be there tomorrow.

    Congrats on the new pickups! Hell of a haul! I'm happy to see someone else getting into proofs.

    The tray case for 11/22/63 is one of the best 3rd party cases out there, you will not be disappointed.

    Thanks every one. Looking forward to getting all my new stuff.
    Yes, I am officially, slowly getting into proofs. I really think the Talisman is a great book so why not start with that proof. Getting a Dr.Sleep with a re-Marque is a bonus. That shining should also be good. I have bought 2 cases from The collector before. I bought a slip case for The Gunslinger first ed I have and I bought the tray case for The Stand. His stuff is really good but that 11/22/63 one looks so cool, I could not pass it up. And even though it's a 3rd, I still want to protect my Salems' Lot a little bit. I hope to swap it out for a 2nd some day. So now it's the waiting game.
    P.S It looks like Mon for the books

    Well, I got all three books. I am really happy with what I got. They all look incredible. I will try and post pics tomorrow.

    And now the Talisman proof (still in plastic)

    sorry for the blurry pic. It could be because of the plastic.

    Why does that TALISMAN proof remind me of Laura Palmer?

    Nice stuff though!

    I highly recommend watching TWIN PEAKS. I just bought "Season 3" and have watched all but the last two episodes in two days. Fascinating, weird, compelling, funny, sad, and oh yeah, did I mention, weird.

    Thanks Jack and Brian. I am very pleased with all I got. I now have to find more space because I am running out of shelf space.
    Twin Peaks is coming from Lynch so I would expect it to be weird. Maybe some day I will check it out.
    Now I am going to rest. Maybe.

    Slip cases from Tom are on the way. Expected by this Thursday. Plus, I sent Tom my remarque and he will put it up on his site soon I think.

    Thanks. It's my first one but hopefully not my last. I think overall it's a good haul. No we wait and see what comes next.
