    Thanks.

    Sure....it's a "Sharpie" signature....but it's an old King signature.....and it's dated the month after publication.

    And I love the flyer.

    I have a few older King signatures with sharpie. Nothing wrong with that at all Rick. Good job, great purchase.

    I noticed there's another signed book on ebay with that same flyer:

    Signed Copy Of “The Shining” By Stephen King

    US $135.00 starting bid, no bids yet. Might interest someone here?

    that's cool, that adds up nicely! So it may have been inscribed at Brentano's, while he was on tour for the book.

    ha, that's very nice, thanks for that!
    So it looks like it was done in the limosine, driving, not at the signing.

    Yeah she was obviously showing King the sights so a good chance she was an employee.

    I did find this. Not sure if it qualifies. I did see a Tommyknockers dated that day that a seller said he got signed at that event. Wish I would have bid more. That is what lead me to research and find thus

    What about the Best American Short Stories event in 2007? Should that also be included?

    that's cool, that adds up nicely! So it may have been inscribed at Brentano's, while he was on tour for the book.
    Here it is:


    This week, I acquired a set of photos of a King signing for Firestarter that I was told are from 1980 at the Strawberry Patch.

    The pics have good ole bearded Steve at a table with shelves full of FIRESTARTER behind him.
    The table has a sign on it which states, "STEPHEN KING IN PERSON MON MARCH 29th".

    Is anyone familiar with that store? The little research I did suggested in might have been in Franklin Massechusetts.
    We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring
    will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

    Yes, that's right, I read that one too. Impossible to find out now which one it was.
