    Thanks ELazansky, Randall, & ur2ndbiggestfan.
    This was only the 2nd time I've slightly opened my S/L legends.

    Yes, it's a special number from my family.

    I originally had a different number but ended up trading.
    The 1st S/L king book I purchased (DT II) was at an antiquarian event in Portland for about $100, needless to say the disease took over and I was hooked. Not long after there was a another listing on eBay, somebody was breaking up a set of 3 #79's. I asked if I could trade 1 for 3 (plus money) they agreed.

    Thanks for asking

    Contraband 2 A pretty decent copy, the back just as nice.
    "The Hardcase Speaks" name misspelled "Stephan King" & "The Last Vampire: A Baroque Fugue" by Tabitha King.

    Joe Hill "Better than Home" true 1st/1st.
    Signed in pen inside front cover (no drawing of baseball)
    I specifically asked him to "not" draw the baseball on the front with black sharpie. (can't stand sharpies)
    he seemed a little put out at first but he shrugged it off, recapped the sharpie, signed the inside cover in pen.

    I love the 79 shelf! I'll certainly keep an eye out for any #79s I see.

    Great collection!

    I've actually never seen a photo of the front covers before, always just the spines still in the slipcase...

    Thanks for the cover pics! Mine are STILL shrinkwrapped!
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    My 7th World Fantasy Convention Limited's #79 & #221
    This is different sort of cool, on page 79 is a short story "The Bird and the Album", an excerpt from chapter 13 of a work in progress, a new book named "IT".
    Of the majority I see listed for sale, the owners have no idea of the number/limitation sheet on the last page.
    Also has an advertisement in the back promoting "Cujo"

    Sorry my error, regarding the Fantasy reader.
    I wrote S/L, mine is numbered/limited not signed.
    Quite a few were signed by various authors during the event, I don't believe there was ever an attached signature sheet.

    Want to sneak in both my UK Schindler's Ark & US Schindler's List books
    The UK "ark" is in amazing condition for a true 1st, My "List" jacket is not great but I'm still quite happy.
    For me, these were hard to come by.
