    Not everything on my shelves are all books:



    Love this when the lights are out...:



    This is a repurposed tablet loaded with King artwork that I have running a slideshow most of the time. It also plays 50's/60's rock 'n roll that I ran speakers (earbuds, actually...) into the back seat of "Christine". It's pretty wicked to walk in to the room and hear "Little Bitty Pretty One" playing from the car!

    Marvel collection:



    Dark Tower collection:



    And a cool trinket I found in a shop in Gettysburg, PA while on vacation. It sits nicely on the wall next to my books!



    When I started collecting King books, all I could afford were paperbacks with the rare hardcover now and then (except for the Dark Tower series, which I bought strictly in HB). I had pretty much all of his works untill I lost most of it to a tree that fell on my house during hurricane Irene. Since I was insured, I decided to rebuild my collection with all hardback books, even if it meant picking up BCE's (Book Club Editions). Now I have all of his works in hardbacks, with the exception of "Cycle of the Werewolf", "The Green Mile", and 1st ~ 3rd edition "Dark Tower - Gunslinger".

    The only signed/numbered editions I have currently are books about King, not written by him. They are "The Stephen King Companion" by George Beahm and "Road to the Dark Tower" by Bev Vincent. But I intend to get at least one signed King book some day, if only to say I actually have one!

    Thanks everyone! Yeah, the only three I truly need now are the Land Of Enchantment "Cycle Of The Werewolf", a 1st ~ 3rd Printing 1st Edition "Dark Tower - The Gunslinger" (before it was revised), and a HC "Green Mile". I already know which one will be the easiest and least expensive to get, LOL....

    Which one? If you are referring to the brown box in the 10th pic, that's just the cardboard box that the Marvel "The Gunslinger" Omnibus came in. It looks like this....





    The only HC edition of "Gunslinger" I have, aside from "Little Sisters of Eluria" Artist Edition, is the Viking one...

The book comprises seven long essays and features about the life and work of King, and is one of the scarcest King collectibles.

Collings; “Stephen King Meets the Jim and Tammy Zombies” by Howard Wornom; “Stephen King: Dreamweaver” by Stephen J.
