    Default Book Collection: peripheral

    I've been reading Stephen King since the release of Misery when I was a mere teenager, but I only started collecting SK purposefully around 1.5 - 2 years ago. I’ve always had the "collector's gene", the "collector's bug" (whatever the hell this sickness is). I wish I had found this site and Betts Books before I started collecting – would have saved me making a few dud purchases.

    One of my collecting goals for this year was to start a collection thread here and - now that I’ve finally got these new bookshelves - here it is.

    It’s a very modest collection compared to the gargantuan collections on here. In terms of direction, my focus is pretty standard: 1st editions (both UK and US) and the S/L’s (of King's own work or anthologies). Primarily due to space restrictions and the fact that I can't get absolutely everything, I’m not collecting gift / artist editions unless it’s a particular favourite book of mine or there’s no S/L alternative (as in the PS Publishing series). And Lettered editions are beyond my budget.

    Finally, you may not be able to see them, but I also have three Asbestos Firestarters and one first state Salem’s Lot - but they're disguised as “Shipping and Postage Costs” from the US to Australia!

    Thanks so much Jon. And those shelves are IKEA standards - build em yourself in a day or, if you're handy with a hammer like me, around 2 weeks.

    VERY nice collection! I like how you have separated the US from the UK editions (as it should be done).

    I really like your bookshelves that display so well and don't seem to take over space in the room.

    The collection is amazing and my new collection is in my office and was only going to be Dark Tower as i have limited desk space to display. After seeing your collection though, I realize I'm in denial and will have to create more space like this when I buy some other King books outside of Dark Tower :-) Thanks for sharing. -jake

    Thanks Kris! Yes, I've tried to aim for NF+ on most things. Of course there's some notable exceptions - the US Salem's Lot needs a good hospital stay, and a few others where the blemishes are deceitfully hidden

    Wow, thanks Bob! And yes, the way the bookshelves are designed, a "left and right wing" division seemed best.

    Cheers Paul, much appreciated. Still chasing a few of the 1sts. Before I was a registered member here, it was actually seeing your collection that inspired my direction to get both the UK and US 1sts, so, thank you!

    Thanks Josh. I tend to buy in "bulk" because of postage (bulk from Betts, usually!).

    Cheers Jake. And yes, you're in denial. I bought the IT S/L and said to myself, "This is all I need, one nice book to pay homage to one of my favourite writers." Then it arrived, and I saw this tome, and thought. "Well, maybe one more" Then, "Well, I can't have this without having that..." And now I'm in SK collecting Anonymous.

    The bookshelves are IKEA - they look good but have a slightly "flimsy" feel to them... Only slightly, and I'm definitely happy with them. They come with an "extension" level for another shelf up the top (see Honkytonk's thread here - Chad has those extensions), but I couldn't fit it because of the damn picture rails in that room.
