    Default Other Collectible Authors: Classifieds, Wanted, Market Value

    Since we have an 'Other Authors' subforum I thought a separate thread for buying, selling and appraising non-King books might be appropriate. If not, the mods know what to do

    My question for today: what would be a good price for a 1st/1st Song of Kali (Dan Simmons) in collectible (but not necessarily perfect) condition? There is one on eBay for $125 (BIN).

    I think this is a great idea.

    Ref. SONG OF KALI, assume that you mean the Bluejay edition? There are a couple on ABE, signed (bookplate, NF) and unsigned (Fine), in the $125 price range. I don't have experience with either seller, but their ratings are good.

    Thanks, Matt! I'm not in the market for a copy yet but I'll keep $125 in mind.

    A signed Bluejay 1st HC of SONG OF KALI used to be around $250, an unsigned around $175...now a signed Bluejay is around $200, and an unsigned around $125. The Headline reprint HC can be had for pennies on the dollar. The signed/limited/slipcased Earthling edition, which upon publication diminished the value of the Bluejay 1st, runs around $250.

    The Earthling edition may be dropping a little bit, or it might have just been a really lucky end of April for another eBay shopper and myself.
    • On April 21, someone snagged a copy for $129.99 with free shipping in an auction- they were the only bidder.
    • A few days later I managed to get a copy for $120, also with free shipping, through a best offer; the original asking price was $130.
    I had been looking for a copy for a couple years. That was the first time I every remember seeing any offered or sold anywhere close the $120-130 price point. I think $175 was the previous low I'd seen, and that was an auction a couple years ago; I also believe that one had pretty high shipping.

    Interesting. Yeah, I readily admit I haven't kept up on the current values for the various editions of this book...those prices I mention above were valid perhaps a year or two ago, but given the softness of the collectible-book market and the ebbs and flows of various authors' popularity, it doesn't surprise me that there has been a decline. FWIW, I have the Earthling S/L, and it's a great production of a wonderful book.

    Isn't the Collectible Classifieds thread open to all books, not just King? I ask because I truly don't know...I know I've seen some, but not clear on if that's condoned or frowned upon.

    It is, AFAIK, but it seemed logical (to me) for this subforum to have its own dedicated thread. I think there's also a Comics Classifieds thread outside Calvin's Corner?

    I did consciously decide to keep it limited to one thread, as opposed to King items, which rightfully have several threads for selling, appraising etc.

    Keeping with the Simmons theme:



    This one is not as hard to find as it was in the pre-internet days (and before LOVEDEATH) was published, but still a neat thing. This is #82 from the 300-copy edition, and is Fine with just a bit of light handling.

    $50 including shipping to any US address.
    International $45 plus shipping at cost

    It's open to all books, but HIGHLY encouraged to be King books. Ideally 90% of the ads in the CC thread will be King items.

    "I fancy it's the limitation to a thousand copies that is the chief charm and value of an edition deluxe. I don't expect to read this edition deluxe myself, although you needn't tell that to anybody else. Frankly, you know, I don't suppose that anybody ever reads an edition deluxe. No one puts bric-a-brac to any very practical purpose. There's some human instinct which makes a man treasure what he is not to make any use of, because everybody does not possess it.

    I say it every time it comes up here: what a great book- in a great edition. It's a top 5 book for me in every way: Content & Form. DH's Carrion Comfort is on that short list as well.

    True - and I'd add DH's Swan Song (Robert McCammon) to that list as well.
