    I look at it as art which could be used on the book or framed or just kept separate. Having one signed by King and framed would look nice.

    To me the desirability is more in having the uniform look on the bookcases than in actually raising the value of the book club editions. I don't think they'll really do that. Personally I don't know that I'd even put them on books myself. I do like the design though and the idea.

    Yes, if you purchase #50 Carrie, when Salem's Lot is released, i will ask you if you'd like to purchase #50 as well.

    Sentinel, these will be dust jackets for books that aren't worth much to begin with. If anything, our dust jackets will make them more valuable.

    I like the designs but... that's it. Except if books didnt have any covers, i wouldnt like to put a new/different one from the original on a book, and i dont see bookcollector doing it.

    May i say that there is no actual BOOGEYMAN Stephen King book? ^^

    I want these for the simple fact of being able to have a matching set of his books on my self. No I don't expect them to change the value of a bce, but I love the idea of having them all lined up on my shelves in a uniform way. JMO

    And since I already have most of his books in bce form it works well for me.

    Can't call dibs yet, just be the first one to request #1 when they are officially announced and it's yours until you don't want it anymore, lol.

    Wow, Shannon!!! That's a great list!!! Nothing but the best of luck to you. Now, I am not an expert on BOMC editions (except how to spot them passed off as 1/1 lol) EACH of the above listed titles got BOMC treatment?

    Oh, and do me a favor? Scratch "Faithful". I'll just buy it and burn it!!! LOL

    I'm not so sure if all of them got BOMC editions once they started having 1,000,000+ first printings and such. But our goal is for the dustjacket to fit the cheapest, most easily accessible American edition of that title. For example, Rage, Roadwork, etc., will probably be sized to the paperback Signet editions.

    Very interesting. I think I may just keep my eye on this and wait until you've got a few published and then see what I can do. Color me intrigued!!
