    I'm keeping mine a bit lower this year, continuing with last years themes.

    1. Continue my CD GE set with remarques
    2. Get Grant Edition/artist editions of the DT series
    3. Continue collecting 1st ed.
    4. Acquire one or more proofs
    5. Get a signed 1st edition hardcover book
    6. 1st edition The Shining from Folio (signed, or remarqued would be a big cherry on top)
    7. Upgrade my 'Salem's Lot copy if I can find a 1st ed. without a dust jacket for cheap
    8. Other random GE that tickle my fancy (thinking mainly Grant edition of The Talisman and the PS copy of Night Shift)
    9. SK signed Anthology (maybe Book of the Dead)
    10. Original art from SK artists
    11. AE copy of CD's 'Salem's Lot


    I'm actually in the process of acquiring one of my holy grails (thanks to a member here), I wouldn't even have added it to my year goals as it seemed close to unobtainable to me. So I am pretty excited about that.

    Well here we go

    1.) Firestarter S/L
    2.) IT S/L
    3.) EOTD S/L
    4.) Christine S/L
    5.) Cujo S/L
    6.) Talisman S/L
    7.( Regulators S/L
    8.) UK 1sts still needed (Carrie, Salems, NS)

    Basically hope to acquire one of the top 2, at least 2-3 of the next tier and keep a look out for the rare UK titles. And probably expand the proof collection a little here and there. And keep an eye out for cool inscriptions. Ought to be fun!

    Hey. You. Yes, you.

    Have you read Shadowland by Peter Straub?

    You've already read him in The Talisman and Black House - there's no excuse for not going further!

    If you haven't read Shadowland - just do it.

    Do it.

    • Corner the market on undamaged Charlie The Choo Choo UK limited editions, and San Diego Convention editions.
    • Attend Stephen King, Owen King event(s) and obtain a signed copy of Sleeping Beauties.

    I over exceeded my 2016 goals by A LOT so 2017 should be fairly smooth sailing.
    Any upcoming S/L's (hopefully a Sleeping Beauties happens!)
    Hopefully a Strange Weather S/L also happens
    Possibly a Thinner first from Gerald.
    Continuously check in with Gerald, David, and Kim in case they have something I decide I need
    Continuously buy from CD


    EDIT: also would like a Gwendy's S/L

    You see he sold them ALL in less than a minute?

    Also, who is Kim?

    And lastly... I think you could see a S/L of Sleeping Beauties... just because King wants to help his boy get going... perhaps a tour if not though....

    I didn't see that! Wow! Good for him, I'm happy he's seeing business. Thank god I just had it as a possibility. Lol
    Camelot's Kim. I should have specified. Bought a few things from her and have always had a good experience and who doesn't like gift wrap?
    I would love to see a Sleeping Beauties S/L(as would all of us). I brought this up in another thread and it seemed to be mixed as to whether or not there would be one. I agree that it would get Owen's name out there as he isn't anywhere near his father or brother yet. People are going to buy a regular trade regardless because of SK's name being attached but since CD has worked with both Owen and Stephen one can hope.....
    Someone else brought up a valid point that an S/L might take away from Owen as it would be all about Dad in terms of collectors but hey if the book is being purchased....

    Continue to refocus and rebuild my collection on the lower end for both King/Hill and stay on top of King/Hill new releases as they become available. To attend a Sleeping Beauties signing, if one is scheduled close and a Joe Hill signing if close. Oh and continue to hit up the good folks (Chris) here for Hill sigs .

    Last year I didn't focus as much as I wanted in my goals as in 2015 but it has been a really great year for my collection. So I'll list the items I didn't get last year plus some new goals:

    * The long walk UK 1st
    * The running man UK 1st
    * The Plant #1 or 3 unsigned
    * The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon Proof with Letter by King.
    * The Gunslinger 1st Grant
    * Gwendy's Button Box S/L
    * Sleeping Beauties US proof
    * Sleeping Beauties UK proof

    * At least 1 of the 22 1st fiction appearances' magazines/newspapers I'm missing.
    * At least 3 of the 15 1st fiction appearances' books I'm missing.
    * At least 2 of the 28 promo items I'm after.
    * At least 3 more 1st edition books signed by King.
    * At least 2 S/L books I'm missing.
    * At least 15 of the 138 magazines I'm missing that include an original non-fiction piece.
    * At least 10 of the 38 books I'm missing that include an original non-fiction piece.
    * At least 2 of the 173 newspapers I'm missing that include an original non-fiction piece.
    * At least 1 of the two Spanish editions I'm missing.

    Since I completed my last Grails list, I have a new one. I'm pretty positive it'll take a lot of time to get these but I'm not aiming to get 'em in the near future:

    * The Regulators - Lettered edition
    * Stories of Suspense
    * One copy of The Maine campus with a S. King piece on it.
    Wanted list:
    The girl who loved tom gordon ARC with King's letter
    The Plant #3 Unsigned.
