    To put the collecting on hold for the year and spoil my daughter even more than usual.

    Of course the first part won't happen and the second part will happen any way!

    First and foremost - finish unpacking my collection and displaying it prominently in my new home library. Also, cataloging the items in the Home Library app so I have a record of my collection.
    Then, my goal is to catch up on reading. I still haven't started Finders Keepers and I feel like I'm so behind!!

    Of course there are items I'd love to add to my collection:
    The Bachman Books (NAL hardcover)
    The Bachman Books (paperback)
    Rage (Signet paperback, Bachman)
    'Salem's Lot (Doubleday 1975 - third cover state)
    'Salem's Lot (Doubleday 1975 - first cover state)
    The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger (Grant 1982)
    The Plant (Philtrum Press)
    Roadwork (Signet paperback, Bachman)
    Six Stories
    Volume 5 of Castle Rock Newsletters (having an incomplete set is driving me mad)
    First Words
    The Fugitive Recaptured
    How to Write Tales of Horror, Fantasy, and Science Fiction
    The Stephen King Companion

    My goals for 2016 regarding collecting King's works:

    * One for the road illustrated
    * The long walk UK 1st
    * The running man UK 1st
    * The Plant #1 unsigned
    * The Plant #3 unsigned

    * At least 1 of the 12 1st fiction appearances' magazines I'm missing.
    * At least 5 of the 13 1st fiction appearances' books I'm missing.
    * At least 2 of the 19 promo items I'm after.
    * At least 3 more 1st edition books signed by King.
    * At least 2 S/L books I'm missing.
    * At least 30 of the 145 magazines I'm missing that include an original non-fiction piece.
    * At least 10 of the 33 books I'm missing that include an original non-fiction piece.
    * At least 2 of the 165 newspapers I'm missing that include an original non-fiction piece.
    * At least 1 of the two Spanish editions I'm missing.

    Since I completed my last Grails list, I'm creating a new one. I'm pretty positive it'll take a lot of time to get these but I'm not aiming to get these in the near future. It'll probably take me several years and that's why I'm considering these grails:

    * The Regulators - Lettered edition
    * Stories of Suspense
    * One copy of The Maine campus with a S. King piece on it.
    Wanted list:
    The girl who loved tom gordon ARC with King's letter
    The Plant #3 Unsigned.
    Maximum Overdrive Cardboard truck

    Last year I was unfocused in my collecting, too scattershot (sometimes you can't turn down a good deal). That's not to say I didn't acquire beautiful items. Everything I acquired last year was great but the standouts are: US s/l Prime Evil, Green Mile Sub Press Gift set and From A Buick 8 gift edition. Thanks to everyone who helped me acquire these and the other items.

    This year I will try to focus on signed items though that is still broad. It gives me wiggle room.
    Wants:
    Insomnia S/L
    Joyland S/L

    Have:
    Dark Man Proof - blue cover
    Very Best of Best New Horror - PC copy
    Smoke and Mirrors - PC copy

    Captain, Road Prison 36 : What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.
