    Indeed, the Heine edition is one of the best looking sets out there.
    I was very sad as they said that they won't put TWTTKH in the same look.

    I really can not understand that. But this goes hand in hand with the german "one word title translation"-policy

    For the order - i decided that they will stay mixed - i like the look, and it will
    match my DT Shelf which is growing ;D - more to come later!

    First of all the missing Gunslinger/Schwarz

    Thanks a lot - maybe i will get the chance to get it signed one day,
    i guess that will be a worthy addition to the s/ls as the s/l DT1 is a little out of my budget ;D

    But i just got 4 1/1s that will bring me down to 16 1/1 missing - so this was a good day ;D

    Priest I claim you as a new Minion! All you need to do is donate $5 to the HF fund and (optionally, though I highly recommend it as the search for the right one is cool) change your avatar to be minion based.
    Let Bill know in his thread that you have donated and you will become one of the 'Minion Family'

    Your job then is to spread the HF word - seek out new donators and generally participate in the HF fund raising extravaganza!!

    Today i have added three long searched books to my collection.

    A 1/1 of Nightshift, Salems and Shining
    The Salems lot is a second state 1/1 but the condition of all three books is amazing.

    I really was surprised, that the Nightshift has no marks or damages at all,
    after all this years.

    For me, there is nothing comparable in collecting, then having the chance to get
    a flawless piece of what you might search for ;D

    It was fantastic to get my hands on that precious copies.

    Welcome home my beauties, welcome home!

    Impressive, those are in amazing condition!
    "I fancy it's the limitation to a thousand copies that is the chief charm and value of an edition deluxe. I don't expect to read this edition deluxe myself, although you needn't tell that to anybody else. Frankly, you know, I don't suppose that anybody ever reads an edition deluxe. No one puts bric-a-brac to any very practical purpose. There's some human instinct which makes a man treasure what he is not to make any use of, because everybody does not possess it.

    All of the above - I also really like that 'SALEM'S LOT.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...
