    This information is incorrect, I have II-VII of #191, all of which I bought directly from the publisher. I actually found this forum and this thread because I was googling in an effort to locate #191 of Gunslinger, so I was surprised to see that someone had the complete set!

    Thanks for the info. I get some of my information, as you can see, from other sources. Thanks for clearling that up. I will amend the data.

    Hi, and thanks for the welcome! I've got nearly all King books, minus the extremely rare ("The Plant", for example), but not all in the limiteds, of course! My first limited was Firestarter, bought it when I was 14 or so for something like $65 (I was obviously a huge fan at an early age). Missed out on "The Gunslinger", but saw it listed on the "Other books by Stephen King" page in some other book from around that time, I think maybe Insomnia, so I did some fast research and got a 2nd print, then got in on the lottery for the limiteds and got DTII-DTVII. The other limiteds I have are Black House, Salem's Lot, Desperation, and Regulators, plus some anthologies.

    Folks -

    Where is the best place to start looking to purchase a single (numbered under 500) book.

    There's no way I could afford a whole set, least of all not until I hit the lottery or something. I might be able to swing a single book though.

    Hey, maybe someday my name could be on this amazing list!

    What are they going for, individually, approximately?

    Thanks in advance.

    Turtlex-
    You have come to the right place!
    A full same-number set will set you back approx $10,000, but since you are looking to swing a single S/L issue (under 500), then I think these ranges are appropriate for a single book. Others might differ slightly on the prices. [Note: there is a premium for a same-number set, which is why the individual prices when added do not reach $10,000]

    DT I Gunslinger $5000-$6000
    DT II Drawing of the Three $700-$900
    DT III Wastelands $400-$500
    DT IV Wizard & Glass $600-$700
    DT V Wolves of the Calla $400-$550
    DT VI Song of Susannah $350-$450
    DT VII The Dark Tower $400-$550

    I have a single Wastelands #168 that is not part of a larger same-number set, and I think I have a higher Wastelands #964 (I'd have to check) also a single that I would be willing to sell if that holds any interest for you at all. Let me know.

    Just my two cents worth--the price of the DT VII may go up the closer to the issue date of the Revised Gunslinger from Grant comes, if, as usual, the owner of the DTVII can get the same-numbered Revised Gunslinger.

    Wiz -

    Thanks muchly for the information - so very helpful. I am interested too, with perhaps purchasing a book from you, but will have to see how my tax return figures out. Would it be okay if I PM'd you later on?

    Wiz - Thank you kindly!

    Mr. Rabbit Trick - Wow, if I can just interject here - I finally got an opportunity to click your link to your King Collection - VERY impressive.

    If I may ask, where do you keep them all? Do you have a special bookcase? Or slipcovers for each?

    Very cool.

    They are all kept in Brodart or plastic sleeves, in the fitted wardrobes in my spare rooms, at the top of the house. The rooms are constant temperature controlled, and the doors keep out any light. We do not use the top floor for anything else.

    I do not have bookshelves for them yet, although I have searched in vain for anything suitable.

    I'd say the size and quality of your collection warrants finding a good carpenter/woodworker and having some built custom for them.
