    Just adding my congratulations on your wonderful collection. I really like the way that you present it as 'all books are equal' and keep each book title together. I'm not sure I could show that level of 'book humility' - I'm far too proud of my meagre limiteds and prefer them to be put together.
    "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

    Hey, Stroppy. . .thank you!!! Ha ha. . .I don't know if it's book humility, or anal retentiveness! I order the books first by author and then chronologically by title. Ordering them based on monetary value, or all trades together and all limiteds together, would offend my sense of OCD. Heh.

    Dr. West - Thanks, man! That's Maine magazine (March/April 1977 issue), which features the first appearance of the short story "One for the Road." It's outrageously rare, and had been on my dream-list for over 20 years before I was lucky enough to find a copy!
    Here's a better view:


    And yes, that massive pile of cash on the cover is about how much I paid for the damn thing. . .

    Ha!
    By the way, I am selling a 1st/1st copy of The Shining on eBay - it's in fantastic condition and is pricey, but worth a look if you're going for quality. . ..my seller name is "MountainStreamBudo"
    I also have other King 1st editions up this month, including a 1st Dead Zone, 1st 1990 Stand, 1st Long Walk, and others. . .

    Feel free to post what you like in your collection thread, but if you want maximum exposure to a sale item, I suggest putting it in the Collectible Classifieds thread. Most people reduce the price compared to that on ebay as the seller will not be charged the ebay fee. You may also request to be paid via paypal gift (and again not be charged by Paypal) but be advised this reduces the buyers rights if the sale goes wrong and as a (relatively) new member, some buyers may not have the same level of trust to warrant this. (no offence intended by the way - just letting you know what to expect )

    Noah, when I first started on the forum I was also a little lost but once you get familiar with how everything is organized, it will be easy.

    What I found really helped me was to just link directly to Calvin's Corner, and then you can see all the most recent/active threads on that page if you scroll down a little.

    Of course, you should also browse around the other sections, but like biomieg says, Calvin's Corner is where a lot of collectors spend their time Here's a link.

    Wait, you can limit which forums you want to monitor for your "Unread posts" button? LOL Crap I've been here for many years and didn't know you could do that. Is there a tutorial?


    Pardon the interruption, Noah

    Fwiw, I don't subscribe to any thread, I just constantly hit the "What's New" Button at the top of the screen below the title graphic when I'm logged on. It also works when you aren't logged on.

    Racerx, Zelig, Merlin1958 - guys, thanks so much for the positive vibe and for the kind words. Most of the people with whom I've interacted here have been incredibly warm, kind, and welcoming. I'm not sure what that other nonsense was all about, but even if people disagreed with my selling prices, it probably could have been handled in a friendlier fashion. Oh, well. Onward & upward! Thanks again, all!

    Agree brother. Private PM is the classy way to go. There is also a thread you can go to where the Experts can assess what you should ask. VERY helpful and then it is an open forum. Glad to have you!

    Webstar - Thank you. These days, "fair market value" can easily be determined by looking at average sale prices on eBay, ABE, Bookfinder, and other such sites. Again, it's all about condition. . . sure you can find a 1st edition of The Shining for $20, but it's going to be a beat-up POS. I feel like my asking prices reflect both the scarcity and CONDITION of the books. . .and with that said, I will step back and allow this argument to die already!
    Thanks again for being so cool!!!

    The 30 June 1995 issue of USA Weekend is still available from the publisher for $4.95. I asked them if I could get an unfolded copy, and they said it would not be a problem if I collected it.
