    This is JK Potter's copy of the Deluxe Centipede Press Prospectus for The Shining. As David mentioned 4 of these were made! Now that Jared's copy & JK Potter's copy are in the DT.org community the only copies left are King's & his Lawyer's which will probably never make it into circulation. Cover of my copy, different than David's cover as it seems maybe 4 different covers were done?

    Bruce-

    I admit to owning another person's Tom Gordon.....I bought all other Wiater items from Ken Lopez bookseller as a package but could not bring myself to pay the $1250 for the Tom Gordon with bookplate which was the only item listed separately (why I do not fathom), so I left it there as I already had the Gordon from a partial party set already.

    AND HE STILL HAS IT.

    Very nice. What a shame it didn't receive approval. The professionalism of the proposal is outstanding.

    King vetoed it
    "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

    Thanks for the kind comments everyone! I never thought the day would come when I'd sell a couple 'Salem's S/L's & not use the money for more of the same title, I know that sounds weird maybe but my 'Salem's collection is my P&J. I'll share some more info from the prospectus when I have a little time, its been way to hectic here in Colorado!

    Hello all. I'm a member; but I'm very private and a bit shy, so I often "lurk" (I hate that term-it reads like I'm up to no good) about on this site. Although I enjoy and appreciate thedarktower.org, I seldom post anything. However, after viewing this thread, I felt moved to make the following profound statement: WOW!

    Don't ever be shy about being a "Lurker". Part of our membership requirement for Calvins Corner, you have to be deviant. Your lurking habit means you fit in very well. Welcome. Look forward to hearing more about your collection, likes, and dislikes.

    wondering if I could get Whelan to use me to model for pennywise.... I have the hair for it... at least if he catches me in the morning.

    Ockhamistic, I second what the others have said. I also "lurked" for a while in the early days but very soon became somewhat addicted to the site. Now posting new acquisitions and having discussions with other members is one of the highlights of my day! This is a phenomenal community. It's good to have you out of the shadows. Welcome!

    I lurk in tons of threads (this one included) I don't have the knowledge of King works as many of the other folks here do, but love to learn and see all the cool goodies.

    "Clothes of Brass, hair of brown
    Seldom need to breathe, don't need no wings to fly
    and a heart of stone and a fear of fire and water,
    Who am I?"
    "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
