    Noticed some interesting patterns in the "signatures" this particular individual puts up for sale. Especially the placement of them.

    My guess is they use some kind of stamp/pen because none of the books actually looked like they've been signed via SK's own hand. They have the appearance of an authentic signature, but notice the placement on all of the books up for sale or that have been sold. Maybe I'm overthinking this, but I'm highly suspect.

    FOR SALE:

    *The Dead Zone (UK)

    SOLD:

    *Cujo

    *Christine (UK)

    *Carrie (BCE)

    *IT

    *Pet Sematary

    Carrie and The Dead Zone are exactly the same signature. Either a stamp or an auto-pen.

    Wow, guys, great pick up (yep, Chad, you said it man). The seller mentioned on Facebook that he picked them all up at some auction when he was in the navy years ago (~20 years ago?). Anyway, great pick up...

    Carrie



    The Dead Zone

    This person has been selling these stamped signatures for quite awhile.. assumed everyone knew about these.
    I’m guessing sorta maybe this individual made a rubber stamp imprint from a front board of one of the trade editions?
    Does anyone know if this is the same person who does the giveaway pen thing? (supposedly rewards personal pen to the author after the author has autographed)

    Not only forged, but used a black pen. Every signature King did in London was done with a blue pen.

    He was actually trying to sell a fake on a King group? Wow, he’s either telling the truth or he thinks King collectors are pretty stupid.

    He was selling an S/L in my group. I couldn’t call him out publicly cause it was definitely a signed limited. I did however Call him out privately as I didn’t want to go off on him unless it was a mistake. I would LOVE to here more from Cook and others here that have more ammo for me. He is an artist who has multiple blogs and has work out there and most scammers do it anonymously rather than jeopardize his career and what not. He is either VERY good at lying or he Is honest. I bought a book off him and he refunded me and said when it arrives look it over and ask the masses. I will be posting it here and on my group for thoughts and opinions. Doesn’t seem good though and at the same time... it does... again, could be the mark of an expert scammer. He even has a blog where part of it talks about fakes in the art world and how to watch for forgeries. Anyone else here ever deal with him?

    Wow. He could be one of those “hide in plain sight” kind of scammers. Wish I could help but I’d never heard of him before this.
