    Congratulations again, Kerry. Plenty of jealousy, but no hate today.

    Am i correct in assuming that these are quotes from each book? When he signed my Finders Keepers... he wrote the characters name behind the quote and then signed his name.

    Yes they are.

    Mr. Mercedes:

    He muses on the terrorists who brought down the World Trade Center (he muses on them often). Those clowns actually thought they were going to paradise, where they’d live in a kind of eternal luxury hotel being serviced by gorgeous young virgins. Pretty funny, and the best part? The joke was on them . . . not that they knew it. What they got was a momentary view of all those windows and a final flash of light. After that, they and their thousands of victims were just gone. Poof. Seeya later, alligator. Off you go, killers and killed alike, off you go into the universal null set that surrounds one lonely blue planet and all its mindlessly bustling denizens. Every religion lies. Every moral precept is a delusion. Even the stars are a mirage. The truth is darkness, and the only thing that matters is making a statement before one enters it. Cutting the skin of the world and leaving a scar. That’s all history is, after all: scar tissue.

    Finders Keepers:

    Morris assured himself that shit did not mean shit and went back to his cell. Not exactly a penthouse apartment, just six by eight, but at least there were books. Books were escape. Books were freedom. He lay on his cot, imagining how pleasant it would be to have fifteen minutes alone with Cora Ann Hooper, and a power nailer.

    sentinel had a well thought out request.

    I was shocked that King inscribed all three books, but sentinel presented three requests that King was willing to do.

    If sentinel had asked for three quirky personal inscriptions, King would have done one book.

    Example requests that would likely have been denied:

    MM: To the #1 Collector in the world, and a great Mercedes Benz repair person, Best Stephen King

    FK: Stow this book in a case and bury it under a tree. Best, Stephen King
    P.S. Where is the tree?

    EOW: I'm going back to the other two books and writing "KERRY" underneath the inscriptions. Should make them more personal. Best, Steve

    Here is the EoW passage:
    Charlotte Gibney and Henry Sirois had treated her more like a mentally defective child on a day pass. Holly is a different woman now, but traces of the old Holly still remain. And that's okay with Hodges. After all, everyone casts a shadow.
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King
