    I'll take half a dozen, no...wait a sec...
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    This is incredible, like something King completed as an emotional catharsis. I would love to read this text.

    I've forgotten how badly I've always wanted to read this piece (having missed the early Castle Rocks)- it hasn't been reprinted anywhere else, right?

    VERY interesting....I have held that very "book" in my hand...The seller consigned a WHOLE lot of stuff through me but this particular "book" he had no idea as to the value, so he asked me NOT to list it with his other stuff....seller is one of the original supercollectors and was still in collecting mode in 1998 at Bett's Bag of Bones signing that Stu Tinker organized. This signed one-of-a-kind item is pretty cool (as I said, I've read it, and held it in my own hands)...what is most interesting to me is that he finally went to Emmanual at VeryFine to sell some of the stuff that did not sell with me (I sold about 75% of the stuff he gave me).

    Dragline : Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
    Luke : Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand

    I get that this is an amazing revelation and item. But what is the benefit of Emmanuel to showcase this? It's not even for sale. Is this to increase his prestige as someone who brought forth the golden chalice? As we are all aware of another seller who used to post impossible items that they 'found'. Is this in the hope that an offer might be coming? David, our trusted caretaker of Betts on the other hand, is discreet having handled this previously. Kudos to David.

    I might get stones thrown my way for this...but there's just too much 'revelation' lately by big sellers, from Camelot with the special SP Shining to VFB. All from sellers, that's all I'm saying.

    Is the text any different then what was published in Castle Rock? That is a great essay but if someone printed got page one signed and then had it bound - not sure that it is THAT special. Manuscript obviously a different story...

    This is a really cool item and it was interesting to read how it came about, where it came from, etc.
    I do see Juliana's point though...which is what is the point? Perhaps it is to legitimately share an item not many knew about or perhaps it is in the hopes of someone making a huge offer for it.

    I had the 'B' copy of the lettered FIRESTARTER in my hands once. Does that count?

    If David or RF or Merlin or myself or anyone else here had come out with the cool story and let everyone know about the book, would the same thing be said? Personally I'd rather know that something exists than not, that way I can file it away in memory for future reference when browsing those yard sales and flea markets because you just never know what you'll come across. I appreciate that Emmanual thought enough of the item, and the Stephen King community, to tell the story and post photos. Is he propping it up with hopes of an offer or big future sale? Well yeah, maybe, perhaps ... and so what if he is? He's a seller, it's a business, and good on him for knowing how to raise interest in his product. If David had done the same would anybody here have said a word? I enjoyed reading the background story, loved the pictures (read the text in them as I have never read the original essays) and say thanks to Emmanual and Very Fine Books for bringing it to light!

    I can't speculate what their motivation is, but I'm glad I got to see it. Ditto SP The Shining.

    Perfectly said. Just because they're a book seller doesn't mean they can't be a collector too and want to share their cool finds with the world.

    If nobody talked about their books, I'd probably be reading paperbacks by random authors I didn't even like.
    I hired Donald Trump to fire people like Yovanovitch.
