    My copy of 'Knowing Darkness' just came in the mail today.





    Also some interior shots under a spoiler cut just so it doesn't get too long...

    Spoiler:
    Bonus inserts (double-sided). Apologies for the glare.

    Thanks for those 'interior shots'. I still haven't taken mine out of the shrinkwrap. Maybe I will some day!

    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Just got Grant's gift set for The Talisman and Black House, two of my favorite SK books. I'll probably be taking a sabbatical from collecting limiteds for the foreseeable future, short of a must-have announcement like Let the Right One In.

    These aren't really new, I've had them for a couple of years from my trip to Maine. Got them both from Bett's.

    The latter isn't my picture as mine is tucked away in the attic until next Christmas, but it's what it looks like.

    So long story short, the UK hardcover for 'Let the Right One In' is now OOP and it's the only hardcover with the correct English title translation (the US edition being 'Let Me In'). I don't know how 'valuable' it is as some have sold it for $25 while it's gone from $50 to over a hundred elsewhere.

    Regardless it's one of my favorite novels and I was lucky to find a slightly dinged copy for very cheap. I recently got it a brodart cover and slipcase from Jeff Whiley for it. I suppose such protection is unnecessary for a book that's already used but if I ever come across one in better condition at least I'll have something ready.

    I really liked the US version of the movie and I've been wanting to read the book. I guess I'll start looking for a copy.

    Well I recommend you check it out if you can. It's a lot better IMO. The author of the book wrote the screenplay.

    Also a warning, the book can get kind of graphic.

    Well I mean there's stuff like descriptions of pedophilia and child abuse. It has a purpose within the story and there's worse stuff out there I imagine from writers like Ed Lee but I still found it hard to stomach.
