    Default Book Collection: Father Cody

    Well, after looking at more book collection threads, I realize mine is lacking (no, devoid of) explanations. Here goes Round 2!

    The case on the left holds my non-King collectibles. You can see Iím also a huge Adam Nevill fan, and, although I havenít yet read too much Charles L. Grant, Iíve hit collecting his works pretty hard. Luckily, what I have read of his I loved, so I donít regret getting a jump start on his books (for which the cover art I think is exceptional). Scattered throughout the case are several S/Lís and a lot of inscriptions. I plan on posting pictures of the cooler items once Iíve shown off my King collection in its entirety. One last thing about my non-King sling, itís categorized in alphabetical order by first name. Itís a long, boring story that Iíll sneak into your memory banks at some other time in some other thread.

    So, onto the good stuff. Bookcases a la King. My personal treasure trove of portable magic...

    Every trade edition you see, apart from Carrie, Salemís Lot, Different Seasons, and Skeleton Crew (the latter two of which are currently inbound to my doorstep), is a first printing. Iím pretty sure nobody really gives a shit about later printings but I want to be totally honest about my collection, and those four mentioned are not first printings. Yet, they serve an important purpose which is to calm my OCD.

    A few of these are slip or tray cased. A couple by The Collector and a few more by Jeff Whiley (who I recently learned works with Simon to get them looking as spectacular as they do). My plan is to put each book in a case when I consider myself ďdoneĒ with it. Right now, the criteria for ďdoneĒ is true first in NF/NF condition, but Iím fairly certain thatíll change to F/F sooner or later. Iím boring you at this pointó apologies!

    The bottom right shelf has a couple Gift Editions, a few ARCís, and the beginnings of my UK editions collection.

    On top of the cases are the items that are either too tall for a shelf or what I consider special (either now or at some point in the past). My DT collection isnít pictured as it gets a spot all to its own...Iíll post a picture of that another day.

    The picture I posted (ďshelfieĒ I think itís called? Haha) has already changed and Iíve got a bunch of cool stuff on the way, so, Iíll post an update when everything is settled.

    Thank you all so much for your interest! It makes this obsession a healthy one. And not to make this sound like a cheesy award acceptance speech, but I have to specifically thank HONKEYTONKSMASH, peripheral, and Webstar for being so darn helpful bringing me up to speed on practically everything I know about collecting King. Every one of my Pís & Jís came from those guys and Iíve yet to stump them on a King collecting-related question.

    Very nice stuff there. Bachman books and what looks to be a great copy of Nightshift. Nothing to be ashamed of there.

    Thanks, Mike. Iím ecstatic about them, especially Night Shift. I wouldnít have believed you if you told me six months ago that Iíd have a first edition NS.

    Just saw you've started a collection thread here. Brilliant stuff, mate..! A lot of cornerstone King items here... And you know those bookshelves already need an expansion (at least there's room to go taller).

    Very impressive.

    Thanks, brother! I wouldnít have known what those cornerstone items were without all the very much appreciated guidance by you and Chad. Itís a mystery to me that the two of you havenít blocked me yet on Facebook!

    Ugh, yeah bookshelves... the Constant Struggle. I checked out IKEA like you said and think I found the perfect solution.

    Those Bachman books are very nice. I don't have them either. I should have gotten a set many years ago but I was not a PB collector. I've since changed my mind and the prices have rocketed.

    Thanks, Becca! They definitely took some saving up for me. After the 10th or so trip to local thrift shops it finally sunk in that Iíd have to bite the bullet and pay up, haha. Good luck with your hunt!

    I wasnít going to post this but after looking through some of the other amazing collections that include magazines, ephemera, art, etc., I realized it may not be as irrelevant as I thought. If it is, please do tell me. The last thing I want to do is pollute the board with crap.

    Theyíre replicas of the comic books seen in the Creepshow movies. The artist who made these had scanned the props used in the movies to create the prints for each of the combined 30+ full color pages. Theyíre not official, and theyíre technically not limited (theyíre made to order from an artist on Etsy), but Iíll be damned if theyíre not cool as hell.









    I have them displayed next to the Creepshow 2 Limited Edition Blu-ray with insert:

    All in color for a dime! They look great.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.
