    If any info is available it would be cool to hear...

    There isn't much to tell. Don, is a huge fan and supporter of the HF. Based on last year, when, Don went to his house and got two books signed I asked him to go for broke this year on four. From what I can gather, Steve is a big fan of him as well perhaps, stemming from the fact that they both live in proximity on the Keys. He also seems to be an "A-Lister" with, King's assistants and a real nice guy. I may have egged him on, but it was all, Don from thereon in.

    Perhaps, fingers crossed, we can make this an annual tradition, in addition to the grand prize. Next year I am thinking Duma Key, Desperation and The Talisman. Any ideas/suggestions? I have some thing really cool in mind for "The Talisman", but am not at liberty to say.

    A CD copy of The Shining with original art would be mindblowing too, assuming it's out by then.

    Not even close. 'Salem's Lot precedes The Shining, and it hasn't been shipped.

    Yeah true. And I think they've hit a couple snags (with slipcase makers I think), so it'll probably be delayed a bit too. Just wishful thinking

    I am very pleased that the remarques i have done in the Haven Fund Auction books have been so well supported. I am grateful that Stephen King and his staff have been so willing to take the effort to add a signature to the remarqued books and expedite them to the auction, as this allows the books such a welcome collectible and valuable added feature to an auction item. It is a greatkindness that King is willing to continue to support this cause personally. The entertainment industry and in publishing especially, dispensation for the independent contractors who are self employed does not exist when it comes to medical coverage, disability, or retirement funds. Many have honed skills over a lifetime, produce their creativity in solitude, and work their hearts out with the hope that someday they will catch the golden goose. Many work at the edge of financial viability. This fund is a lifesaver to those who provide so many with the benefit of their inspired works.
