    I'm thinking the same here.

    I'm thinking they got 200 bookplates from Steve, gave away 110 and sat on the other 90 to do other giveaways and such and just decided to sell them.

    I quit doing that along time ago, it got old and discoraging. I kept getting the same form letter below.

    I doubt I will buy from them again. I'm sure they don't care or anyone else for that matter. This is stinky though so I'm out.

    I agree, Tommy that they don't care and honestly why should they. Folks were still falling all over themselves to get a copy at a great price. Win win for them. And if they were to release another signed King title; I doubt anyone here would pass on principle.

    Pretty sad, but true that a collector's ethics only extend to the next deal.

    It seems like this was, at best, a fiasco on Folio Books' part, but do we know for sure that the books sold recently were part of that 100/110 series? I know someone posted an account of an email exchange with Folio, but who at Folio did they communicate with? Has that info been confirmed?

    Anyone else who purchased the signed edition find that their book plate seemed to be loosely adhered to the page? Mine's on there, but at least one corner appears to be lifting.

    It just makes it easier for people to find the sale. That's a good deal if they are still 1sts. I haven't heard anything about second printing.

    There is a room full of desks, in an undisclosed location, where people are writing King novels and signing copies of Folio's The Shining by the thousands.
