    Default 2016 Collecting Goals

    My goals are still modest:
    • A couple early US/UK 1st/1st mass-market paperbacks, especially the Signet Firestarter!
    • Get some more Dan Simmons and other author's 1st/1st trade editions;
    • Perhaps a King S/L (most likely one of the classics, or Six Stories).

    Any help with reaching these goals would be much appreciated!

    My goals are fairly modest as well:
    • Get my first King S/L that is a King book (have three that are multi-sig items)
    • A first edition of one of the Doubleday books. None at this point!
    • And very specifically ... Sins of the Fathers double signed by King & Block
    • And in the non-King world, a first edition of Godwulf Manuscript by Robert B. Parker. Only one of his I don't have a first of

    I'm looking for a signed trade edition of Bazaar of Bad Dreams.

    I'd like to get a signed trade of the new End of Watch in addition to the US proof and, if printed, the UK proof.

    I'm also hoping to get any proofs I don't already have.

    I have quite a few goals, and I don't expect to reach them all, but hopefully a few.

    Get more remarques
    Get a flat signed trade hard cover, probably 'Salem's Lot
    Get at least one more signed limited, or maybe lettered edition
    Get my first proof
    Get an artist edition and/or remarqued copy of CD's 'Salem's Lot
    Work on collecting the trade hard covers (or artist editions) of the Dark Tower series
    Get more gift editions and 1st editions
    Maybe get One For the Road if I find it for a reasonable price

    That is a VERY lofty goal. I really hope you do, as I'd love to hear the story and see the pictures.

    It keeps bugging me that I don't have the books in this first list, so maybe I should make it a goal to get them this year.
    • UK 1st Danse Macabre
    • LSOE Artist Edition
    • Easton Press Dead Zone
    • Just After Sunset UK 1/500 Limited
    • TWTTK UK 1/200 S/L
    • UTD UK 1/500 S/L
    • Bag of Bones UK 1/2000 S/L
    • King, etc. paperback

    I'll also plan on expanding my paperback collection.

    Then some others if funds/availability permit.
    • Signed Mr Mercedes
    • Signed BOBD
    • Signed End of Watch
    • End of Watch proofs
    • 3-5 S/L editions, incl. EOTD & Firestarter
    • 3-5 signed 1st editions

    And of course, a 'neo back story' would be icing on the top!

    2015 was a big year for me crossing off some major collecting goals, especially reuniting my DT S/L matching set (over #500).

    I would like to:
    • add a few more early King limiteds
    • expand my UK collection (specifically in the early titles)
    • add more remarques and maybe an original art piece
    Wanted: Human skin edition of The Book of the Dead. Will accept PC copy.

    2015 marked the year I seriously started collecting. My collecting goals for 2016 are to:
    - Buy a nice set of bookshelves to house my current collection. They're all over the place now.
    - (Have some courage to) Start a thread / share photos of my collection on this forum's Collection Thread.
    - Get 3-5 S/Ls of King's own work
    - 1-2 S/L anthologies
    - UK Bachman 1st paperbacks
    - 1-2 interesting proofs
    - Carrie UK 1st

    My collecting goals for 2016 and beyond,

    2016

    To get at least another 24 proofs before the end of the year.
    To get a few more missing US 1st - but probably not the Doubledays yet.
    To get any new books End Of Watch etc., still uncertain on Deluxe PS Skeleton Crew

    2016 and beyond (these have been on the list for a few years)

    S/L - Danse Macabre, My Pretty Pony (With Booklab traycase).
    Lettered - My Holy Grails and therefore unlikely - The Green Mile, The Regulators and Firestarter.

    1. Pay off the CC bill that 2015 left me with!
    2. Get new bookcase built
    3. Maybe 1 or 2 more S/L's
    "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

    I wish you all good luck with your goals ! May the fortune be on your side


    As i reduced my collection in 2015 significant out of reasons -
    there are not so many goals left for the moment.

    I am quite happy with what i got in 2015, as this was the best of all years in my collection life,
    so my true 2016 goal is to see more pictures of your fantastic collections (!)


    But if there is something that would give me shivers to get in 2016, this would be
    1. A new Knowing Darkness Artwork
    2. One of the missing Dark Tower #PC Editions, especially the Gunslinger or Wolves of the Calla
    3. The #101 Gunslinger

    2016 Goals:

    - Double my bookcase space by buying three more cases in the same style as the three primary cases I already use.

    - Hire a local professional to come out and install high quality UV window tinting to all of the bookcases so I can stop worrying about it.

    - Buy more signed King, Gaiman, GRRM, Vonnegut and other authors that catch my interest. No specific plan at this time.
