    Default King Hardcover Trade Lot - Giveaway

    Iím creating a placeholder here as a heads up. Iím going to be doing another giveaway, but this time with a little game/puzzle. I should be posting this sometime tomorrow. The game can be played for both interested and non-interested parties. What I mean by this is, Iím going to post a picture tomorrow with instructions. The first person to answer correctly wins the lot.

    You can still play if you are not interested in winning the prize, just make sure to state Ďnot-interestedí next to your answer/s. If that is the case the first person that is interested to answer correctly will actually get shipped the lot. If a non-interested player answers first, they get bragging rights.

    Just so you are aware, the lot includes hardcover trade editions, some 1sts (Iím not going to list which ones, but donít get too excited, all of my rare 1sts are on my shelves). Of course some may be second printings, or BCE, but most are in good shape and most DJs are in brodart.

    I wonít reveal the answer until the following day giving time for anyone that wants to play to do so. Iím going to try to make this a bit tough, probably closer to medium toughness so that itís not overly frustrating.

    Hope itís fun. Good luck to all that play.

    Ok, a quick heads up, I'm going to post this shortly. In looking through the books again, all but one are 1st editions. Now, please keep in mind these are and have been readers copies. So some are in better condition than others. Some have previous owner tags/inscriptions, some have markings etc. There are a couple that are in very good condition, but I need to make it clear that this is not a pristine lot by any means. However, with it being a free giveaway, I'm hoping folks won't mind.

    Okie doke, getting ready to post pics now. I am not sure how easy or difficult this will be. A part of me thinks too easy, but could be just because I know. Remember, if you are playing just to play, but not for the lot to put 'Not Interested'. Next to your answers.

    Good luck and hope this is somewhat fun.

    Below is a list of 8 King Trade Hardcover books. They are stacked and I have only provided just the bottom of the DJ spine. The black line is just for distraction. The goal is to correctly name all 8 in the order as pictured from top to bottom. Some are pretty easy to spot right off the bat, others hopefully not so much. Might be too easy, we'll know soon enough.

    Bonus - this is a section of the cover of another King book, curious if you can guess this one too.

    1 - On Writing
    2 - Tommyknockers
    3 - Everythingís Eventual
    4 - The Stand (Uncut)
    5 - Dreamcatcher
    6 - Needful Things
    7 - From a Buick 8
    8 - Cell

    Thanks to those that played. Below is the actual image.



    First Place: StroppyGoblin (Not-interested)
    Second Place: PennyUnwise (Not-interested)
    Third Place: C1TIZEN_X

    Within, I think, about 5-10 minutes of posting the first photo I received a PM from StroppyGoblin with the correct answer. So even though he didn't post here, he gets the glory, but was playing to play. Also PennyUnwise guessed correctly, but does not need the books. So that means C1TIZEN_X you are the first interested member to post the correct order. Congrats.

    Zidan - thanks for playing, you were so close. Also, I hope you are feeling better and were able to rest up yesterday.

    No one has guessed the bonus cover correctly yet. This one is tricky. Very tricky. I was going to mention a couple of things, but any details would give this away in a heartbeat. So all I can say is that the picture is from the bottom right section of the front of the Dustjacket. The person that correctly guesses this, gets the bonus book.

    Okay already. What's the bonus cover a picture of? The closest I could come was ROSE MADDER, but it didn't quite match.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    I canít give it up just yet. I thought about a few clues, or even just one, but it would give it away. I can tell you that itís tricky and not as common. Itís also not part of the books that everyone is likely thinking or looking through. This one is a bit more out of the box and not everyone has it. In fact, I think only those that do, will be able to guess it.

    Hope that helps

    The bonus picture is from the variant cover of Gwendyís Button Box from CD\NRB.
    "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
