    Default 2013 & 2018 The Years of Stephen King Breaking Your Pocketbook

    Sorry for the dumb thread title. It is subject to change, deletion, merging, or archiving.
    Purely unnoficial, and keeping in mind that the official year of release doesn't always correlate to when King wrote or actually signed the book/story/guitar/portfolio, etc. 2013 has been a remarkable year for King, and a very expensive year for King Collectors

    Here is a rough count of King S/L's by year:

    1980-1
    1981-2
    1982-4
    1983-4 (Cotw Portfolio)
    1984-2
    1985-1
    1986-0 (Ouch!)
    1987-2
    1988-5 (DTI Audio, Letters From Hell)
    1989-4 (DTII Audio)
    1990-4 (Rainy Season Print)
    1991-4 (Signatures)
    1992-1
    1993-1
    1994-3 (Insomnia Portfolio)
    1995-2 (Betts re-binds House Next Door)
    1996-5
    1997-3 (Cujo Guitar)
    1998-3
    1999-1
    2000-2
    2001-0 (Ouch!)
    2002-2
    2003-2
    2004-5 (Does TGWLTG really count?)
    2005-2
    2006-1
    2007-4
    2008-0 (Ouch!)
    2009-4
    2010-6
    2011-7
    2012-5
    2013-8
    2014-?

    Interesting. My purse is feeling the pain thats for sure.
    Without research I think 2001 was the year of his accident and thots of retirement so that explains zero for that year.
    What happened in 2008?
    Actually what happened 2012 where he wrote so much to be published in 2013??
    reality continues to ruin my life

    6/19/1999 was when King was struck and almost killed by a distracted driver.
    That may explain why he really didn't have a S/L novel out from ~1998 until 2002.
    1999 The New Lieutenant's Rap 500+24 Proofs=524

    2000 Life in the Cinema 52 + 450 = 502

    Yes, but I don't believe it was released as a S/L.

    Thats what I get for trying to be clever after too much wine and past my bedtime.
    I completely missed "SLs" in your initial post.

    That drawing is so fucking rude.
    Notice how the number of SLs are steadily increasing the past few years?
    Time to budget for 2014. Maybe ten or more will be released

    Well, there's a scene on "Family Guy" in which SK gets hit by a car, decides that a man getting hit by a car would make a good novel, and finishes writing that novel before he lands.
    I guess the process is a little bit slower than that, some years...

    I know some of these may have been paid for prior to 2013, but if you bought 1 lettered and 1 S/L of each of these titles you would have spent quite a bit:


    2013 The Big Book of Necon Lettered – 52----$1,000
    2013 The Shining - 750 #'d + 52 Lettered = 802---$2,950
    2013 Doctor Sleep - 750 #'d + 52 Lettered = 802. Indeterminate # of PC's---$2,950
    2013 A Book of Horrors - S/L - 100 (83 for public sale)---$995
    2013 The Century's Best Horror Fiction - 52 Lettered - 25 Artist Edition = 77---$3,000
    2013 Joyland - 26 Lettered - 724 Numbered = 750---$275
    2013 The Dark Man: An Illustrated Poem - 500 #'d + 52 Lettered = 552---$2,100
    2013 Doctor Sleep UK – 200---$300

    $13,570!

    The rapid pace of releases in 2013 was awesome - I say keep it coming in 2014! It's not like you have to buy everything being offered, but it is nice having a choice among some tempting titles like The Shining, Doctor Sleep, and Joyland (which turned out to be a fairly good novel at a more than reasonable price).

    Besides if you get it at issue price, you can always resell if you decide it is not a keeper.

    Very bad taste in my opinion. Near death traumatic experience he may never fully get over. Why would someone poke fun at that? The driver's Thumbs Up is particularly unnerving

    I would guess that it is due to the "25+ anniversaries" that are now starting to crop up. IMHO

    That list makes me happy that I don't collect anthologies or lettered editions!
    "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.
