    I too, just saw this thread. How exciting! Neo-Trinity doesn't know me from Adam, but I've always enjoyed reading his posts and appreciating his collecting knowledge. Good luck Gerald!

    This is FANTASTIC! My only regret is that I am sure I'll never go to Maine. I bought the Centipede Press 'Salem's Lot' from him a couple of years ago and he was an absolute wonderful person to do business with. Wishing him and his son the BEST of luck!!!!!

    I'm sure he intends on some sort of online presence.

    Just visited Gerald's website. I think we can look forward to some rare items and amazing quality.
    Take the time to look at his copy of The Hobbit, I do not think I have seen a better first edition of this book.

    Didn't he sell it, and the sale was a record auction?

    Bet King will stop in here a time or two I hope to visit and also hope that there is some affordable items. I feel there will not be but one can wish right?

    Many of the things that I saw with a price tag on them were very reasonable. *****THIS NEXT PART IS ONLY MY OPINION....PURE SPECULATION BASED ON WHAT I SAW**** I am speculating that most of his prices will be more in the "Betts Books" ballpark and not the "Veryfine Books" end of things. I could be wrong, and he is in business to make money, but that is the impression I got.

    That is really exciting news. I love how he outsourced a man hole cover from the city of Bangor for his shop to replicate the one from IT. This is so cool. I hope he makes a go of it and it is a staple spot to visit for all King collectors for a long time to come!

    Stopped in today and I must say that it was pretty exciting to walk into a brick and mortar King centric book store. He has some great stuff already and not everything is even out for display yet! Not to mention he is a very nice guy with great collecting knowledge. We had a good chat. Even though it is sold he showed me the asbestos Firestarter, a beauty! Oh yeah and I picked up not one but three books I've been looking for. This place is going to be dangerous. Lol.

    It is surely a dangerous place. Luckly for me I live just far enough away (2 to 2 1/2 hours) that I can't just make a spur-of-the-moment decision to go visit. That should protect my wallet a little bit.
    At least until tomorrow, when I take my wife up to see the shop and meet Gerald.

    You're lucky! Lol, I live about two minutes away. Not gonna be good! He asked if you and I knew each other and I said that we did indeed. Enjoy your visit tomorrow! Don't buy anything I might want. I got enough today

    JMHO, but this guy is taking his shot at being THE Stephen King & Collectible store in, Maine. I really respect that. Doesn't mean I won't visit, Betts it just means I will visit BOTH to search for the books I crave!!!



    Spoiler:
    I do have a "soft spot" for, David but would he really condemn me? LOL I applaud, Geralds' sense of STYLE!!! Competition is great for commerce!!!

    I wish Gerald ALL SUCCESS in his venture in Bangor....I have no issues with his being in competition with me...the important thing for me ALWAYS is that certain books find new homes to those that want and appreciate them...if I can fascilitate that process, GREAT, if Gerald does it, that is GREAT too!

    Dragline : Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
    Luke : Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand

    Congrats on the new venture, Gerald. I look forward to checking it out (online from the west coast, that is).

    Had some out of town friends visiting for BanGOREfest this past weekend and of course I told them to check out the store. And of course I went with them and bought three more books.
    12 step program STAT!
    He has some amazing stuff. A few display only items including a Napkins 1st and 2nd draft along with original pencil sketches for the S/L. I personally don't collect proofs but he has a ton, many signed.
    After going back I would have to say that price wise he is a bit on the higher side. David has spoiled us I think! However, he seems willing to negotiate. The first time I went in and bought three pricier items I asked if he would knock a little off due to buying all three and he did. I'm in the middle of another possible purchase now.....
    With that being said, I will ALWAYS continue to see what David gets in because they both have different and sought after items.
