    Thank you in advance!
    I sold a couple copies not too long ago of the red leather Storm of the Century for $45 and Secret Windows went for $60.

    Hope this helps

    Just wondering since there seem to be a lot of these "special" editions. What value do you think there will be for a UK Sleeping Beauties S/L in "shipping damaged" condition? I may be selling mine.

    Here is my damaged copy.

    Ouch!! I think that's the worse we've seen by far! I'd say you're due a total refund and whatever you can then sell it for.

    I'm not sure you could sell it at cost with that damage. I'd seek a refund.

    You could ask for a partial refund and then start an auction at $99 and see where it goes?

    Or maybe find a book repair shop and see if they can do anything.

    I have to wait and see what kind of response I get from Waterstones, but I like the idea of seeing if I can get it repaired. I may have to see what's available in my area. Thanks Becca.

    Had a look on ebay, but didn't notice anything recent; what are thoughts on the current value of CTCC anomaly edition?
    I saw a few on in a local store the other day. They had been remaindered with a black mark so they would be a bit lower in value, but still curious of current rate.

    Are you talking about this one?

    It shows a little spine damage. Recent eBay sales have been around $50.

    If they have a remainder mark, they are worthless other than as reading copies for children.

    I think that a remainder mark on a book would affect its stated condition and lower the value, but worthless seems a little harsh.
    Either way, I was just curious on CTCC and appreciate the thoughts.

    Not trying to be harsh, but it (remainder mark) takes a ~$40 book and makes it worth less than $10 IMO. Not sure what they are selling them for, but as stated, from a collectible perspective, they have no real value.

    Are "review" copies worth any more. I have a review copy first ed for Firestarter. Some one said that a first ed first print may be as high as $125? That is more that I thought. I also have a review copy of Misery. They both have a pic of King and a copy of the review. Plus a flat signed Carrie. Don't have a pic of that one though. But I will put it up with my new S\L Skeleton Crew that I just got.



    Thanks

    This is a nice link that has some prices on some of the more expensive King books. They mentioned that a signed Carrie can be worth $7500. The article is only a year old. That can't be right.

    The prices are off (kind of like a bad version of "The Antique Road Show"). A First Edition signed Carrie (in v to f) is valued about $1900.

    Of course this is just my opinion.

    $7,500 did seem steep. But some of the others seemed closer. Who knows. I think your value of $1900 is closer to the truth. Thanks.
    Now I wonder if my review copies are worth more. Probably not. Oh well. The stuff is still cool to have. I also have a Nightshift, first ed that is inscribed but it has some inside cover damage. So I am sure that would lower the price.
    P.S is a first ed Fire starter really worth $125? What about a first ed Dead Zone.
    Thanks

    Just for the record, I think your review copies look great.

    Thanks. When I bought them from Stu, way back when, there was no mention of them being review copies. It's just that I have never seen them (review copies)before. I like the review sheet. I think it looks cool. My Dead Zone is a review copy as well but it only has the review card, not the review page itself .
