    Cool idea, very intriguing.
    Can you share a little more depth to the project, layout, king of information you'll be providing, etc.
    Maybe share one example of one book, like a moderately difficult one.
    Is the plan to have 1 page per book.
    My apologies if this has already been covered.
    Thanks

    The book will be 32 pages, pocket sized (3.5x5) and printed here in the US . . . As we're in the editing phase, sharing the layout isn't feasable at the moment . . . and as it's only 32 pages, it won't be one page per book.

    Each book will be listed by publisher, publication year, cover artist, and cover price . . . then there will be the markers. I'll be listing stated edition, number lines, gutter codes, printing errors, dust jacket states and color of binding, boards and endpapers for each book.

    I can finally chime in on an autograph authenticity opinion. That King Signature is a FAKE! Not a 1977 sig. Attack! Ha! Such a cool idea.

    Default Book is at the printers!!

    For those following along with the progress of A Guide to U.S. First Editions of Stephen King, the book is currently at the printers as I type! They've promised to send me some snapshots of the book when it hits the press later this week!! It's a very exciting time . . . now I am ordering up the shipping supplies for later this month when I begin fulfillment!!

    If you haven't ordered yours yet, there are some left!!

    Hey PMKane, I tried to order a copy but LightBox says "there are no shipping options for the items in your cart", I'm located in Canada - are these only available for US buyers?

    That is very strange . . . I've sold more than a few to Canada . . . and a bunch to both Spain and France . . . I am looking into it now . . . can you try again for me, please? (if you're still interested - sorry, that was presumptuous!)

    An update for anyone curious or having similar issues with shipping - Paul was quick to answer PM's and send me an invoice directly to ensure that I could still get a copy. Very happy with the fast communication and service. Looking forward to this Paul!
