    Default Which would be the best book as a Grand Prize this year?

    Non-binding poll. We are now only ~6 weeks away from the Fundraiser closing (5/19/2014).
    Which book do you think would be the most desirable to have King inscribe to you (the winner)?
    I would have more options, but it is unlikely we could acquire a S/L "the Shining", or a S/L "Doctor Sleep" to have King inscribe.

    As there are no planned signings, Mr Mercedes seems a good choice.
    "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

    Not that Mr. King ever turns the book around very quickly, but Mr. Mercedes isn't due out until June, right? The HF ends 5/19/14. Unless he is supplying the book I suppose. Hmmmm.

    U.S. Mr. Mercedes 1st is my vote.

    I for one would not mind waiting until June were I lucky enough to win.

    The book will not be supplied by the winner.

    I would assume Doctor Sleep would be donated by CD or by a member of this site, or purchased with funds from the fundraiser.

    I would assume The Shining would be donated by SP or by a member of this site, or purchased with funds from the fundraiser.

    I would assume Mr. Mercedes would be donated by Scriber or King or CD or by a member of this site, or purchased with funds from the fundraiser.

    I didn't vote. If these are the only three options that we are allowed to send him, then that is understandable. But at the same time, with the exception of Rage (for obvious reasons), I don't see why the winner couldn't provide the book him/herself that they truly want to get signed/inscribed. Not causing dissention here, I just don't see why that wouldn't be an/THE option.

    Agreed with emphasis on 'greed'

    i think the inference is that this would allow you to make a valuable book even more valuable if you could supply your own...

    3 years ago, the book got lost. Fortunately it was a gift edition of FDNS that CD donated, and Chadbourne had remarqued. Cd donated another book, and Chadbourne did another remarque. Had it been something a member had sent in, it might not have been so easily replaced.

    Did a picture of the remarque ever get taken? be interesting to see if that book ever turned up on ebay....

    The book definitely made it to King's office, but somehow got misplaced.

    Your 100% right. Most of us have a book in our collections that are near and dear for one reason or another.... and would like that signed. I envy so many here that have had the chance to meet Sai King.... alas I may never get the chance. What about a 1 hour meet and greet with King himself for the top prize? lol

    Knowing there is a slight chance your book could be lost, what book would you yourself submit?

    Hypothetically (because I really don't want it to get lost) I would have King sign my Skeleton Crew proof... but only if he used his 1980's signature

    Otherwise, my vote goes to a Mr. Mercedes trade 1st/1st hardcover.
