    We did discuss this at .net. He really "degraded" his signature to what you have pictured there. I would also agree the sig you have shown is consistent with his newest signing style, and therefore is legitimate.

    Hell, it might have been me that started the convo on .net. I remember coming across this same situation last year.

    I appreciate the feedback. If you guys want to merge this into another thread, feel free. Or we can just sit around and talk about Phil.

    Between the 1st and 2nd Editions of DotT, which artwork do you collectors/readers prefer? Neither really "tickled my fancy" but I think the revised stuff is a little darker and better suits his style.

    I agree that the revised paintings from the 2nd edition were darker which probably fit the story better but I still prefer the original paintings from the 1st edition. From what I heard Phil was not happy with the original paintings and wanted to do all new paintings for the 2nd edition.

    Yup, that's definitely Phil's signature. I happen to be staring at seven signed prints from the 2nd edition of DotT that I have in my cubicle, and it is consistent across the board.

    BTW, I much prefer 2nd edition to the first. They are among my favorite artwork in the series.

    Six months ago I interviewed Phil Hale for Insomnia Magazine and he told me that he asked Robert (at grant books) if he could change all the artwork for DOTT. He didn't earn any money for it!

    Thanks everyone. I managed to snag it for $50, so depending on the condition of the book (listed as mint) I think it's a good deal. I'm planning to get my 7 books signed by at least the artist. Since I've already got Artist Editions of 5,6, and 7, I just need to track down Mr. Whelan, Dameron, and McKean to make my set complete.

    That's amazing that Phil offered new artwork for no compensation.

    I have it but have not spent much time with it yet!

    As a side note, I will be visiting with Rocky when he visits Washington, DC in about six weeks! I first met Rocky at the Stanley Hotel in 2003 at the Shining Masquerade Ball/Annual SKEMERCon. He is a teriffic guy and knows his King information quite well!

    I attribute his first CD Book, The Complete Works of Stephen King as the primary source for helping me to win in each of Calla Wolf's King Trivia contests! And for the second one I won a 1st Edition Carrie so that was well worth it I'd say!

    I also have one, but, like CRinVA, I haven't had that much time to go through it. It seems very informational, but one problem I have with it is that to enter information about your specific volume, you have to download the appropriate page(s). I know that to do otherwise could involve some real programming problems, but...

    Bob, when you see Rocky, tell him Hi for me!

    Thanks, Karen. I remember you mentioning the signed books at Grant and I missed the boat on those.

    Great thread.
    Since it really isn't a tutorial thread I may just move it to the main Collectors area.
    Hope that is ok.

    I never get tired of opening this gem up. Here's our hardcover that we sent halfway across the country for Bev to sign. I'd love to find a way to get Glenn to sign it as well!!!

    We've got a trade paperback that we take on road trips. It's a great way to pass the miles on by.

    Contact the folks at Cemetery Dance -- they might be able to put you in touch with Glenn. He's a great guy, one of my favorite people.

    Thanks, RF. And, thanks Bev! I'll try to contact CD and see what happens. Brian F. works there, doesn't he? I could go for the tri-fecta!

    Default Request from Hutch

    A few days ago I visited to my own site http://www.stephenkingbuy.com

    When I got there I noticed the site had lost some of it's functionality. Sunday and Monday I worked until 5 am and 4 am working to restore all that was lost and while at it I suddenly found myself doing a redesign.

    I would appreciate any feedback you can give me as to it's design and functionality. I also created new links to identifying firsts and forgery protection as well as new page designs for both of those.

    In the future I plan on adding a page to identifying UK firsts as well.

    On another subject, a collector sought me out for signature verification. He said he heard I was a frequently suggested source for verification. As always I offered my opinion via email of the item in question once he submitted clear images. He wanted more... he wanted documentation for insurance purposes or to verify value for his family if he were deceased or ill. He offered to compensate me for my time. I told him I consider certificates of authenticity worthless I would create a letter of opinion. I watermarked a couple of his images, imbedded them in the document and wrote my evaluation. As for compensation, I suggested he simply pay me for my time with the amount to be determined by him. He was delighted with what I sent him and compensated me fairly.

    Does anyone think this type of service if done right has value, is in demand, and is something I should offer on a regular basis?

    Personally, I value my own opinion so much that I find little value in seeking other verification. ( my attempt at humor )

    Dave, the only caveat on supplying a "letter of opinion" is that you are doing it without actually seeing and handling the book. I, myself, would be rather uncomfortable with that. There could be flaws in the book that would devalue it but are not visible in a scanned image.

    Site looks really good Hutch. I believe Johns advice above is really sound.
