    Im tempted to start collecting bootlegs now. I love that Vonnegut bootleg, with or without the misspelling.

    I like the misspelling. It's kind of perfect.

    I think I have a few John Updike bootlegs somewhere.

    I generally have passed on them though. They are cool, but they are usually not highly collectible. That does make them more affordable.

    The misspelling definitely adds to the cool factor!

    Isn't she the daughter of Aaron Spelling, the famous TV and movie producer?
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    Agreed that the misspelling makes it a neater book!

    Also, youre right Brian about the collectability. There are a distinct minority of bootlegs that are collectible, 95% arent. So it definitely makes it a relatively affordable area to collect. Im at the point now where I will pick up most bootlegs if they are less than $10, but otherwise I only seek out bootlegs for authors or books I already collect. Id love to have more SK books and to complete a bootleg Dune collection.

    I do have a smallish collection of Updike firsts I really liked the Rabbit series and the dustjacket theme (why did they have to ruin it with Rabbit Is Rich ). My first edition Rabbit, Run was one of the books I got for an amazing price because a bookstore on Fillmore Street went out of business in ~2008 .

    I must admit, I didn't realize that people collected bootlegs, and it sounds fascinating. I learn all kinds of cool stuff here.

    (I'd kill to see your Dune bootleg collection)
