    I think there is an arc for the Plume paperback Gunslinger.

    I think you’re right. I have one for DOTT. It’s labeled, “Special Reading Copy.”

    Not strictly King related for my purposes, but do any of you guys know a good source for old newspapers? The Washington Post, New York Times, etc? From what I can find, it seems they only go back up to 6 months for back issues. I'm needing to go back several years. Any help would/will be greatly appreciated!

    Libraries. If they won't let you have the original, they'll certainly make you a copy.

    Or the library online. The Washington Post and New York Times and many other papers all have archives online. I know the The Houston Public Library databases have them.

    I'm surprised this one doesn't have the crease down the spine from where the 5 (maybe six) jackets were placed in a file cabinet for storage. I've only seen two throughout my collecting days and both had a crease almost perfect center down the spine.

    Maybe the picture or angle isn't showing it well.

    I had the same thought about the crease. It certainly doesn't appear to be there from that pic but maybe like you say it is the angle. Though you'd think someone in the know would proudly display that crease.

    It's not a fake. I am 100% positive about that. The crease is there, right between the black and white portions of the dust jacket, not on the spine. It is almost impossible to see unless someone points it out.

    How do I know? A little bird told me.

    I wasn't suggesting it was fake but was curious about where the crease was/is. I still can't see it but I am in no position to buy so my opinion matters not.

    I've heard about the crease between the black and white portion of the jacket, but have only seen the two that had a crease down the spine.

    A rare gem indeed for a completest (with some pocket money to spare).

    Most of the large libraries will have multiple copies. Over time that stock is depleted. The large libraries in the area of interest might still have copies though. It's best if you show up in person and charm the librarian a bit.

    Good luck!

    Wasn't an ARC, but was a 1st/1st The Shining paperback in VG ++ condition so still a keeper.

    I had a similar thing a few months ago on ebay: one of those big thrift stores had an 'uncorrected galley proof' of Pet Sematary for 10 bucks, with a stock image in the listing. Bought it, waited for two months, it was just a mass market paperback. I complained, sent some pictures back. I got a refund and did not need to return it. I love a free book!

    I'm posting these on eBay tonight--part of a small collection that we purchased today--but there seems to be little info on them, and not sure where to look. Thoughts/help?

    I have a nice Colorado Kid printed by the same Italian publisher. That's the first Rage I've seen. Very nice.
