    I have a couple S/L Joe Hill's, one personalised JH, and a couple other signed limited's by other authors. Aside from that I just collect books in general and horror specifically although aside from King and the above mentioned books I don't think I have anything particularly rare.

    Umm... not trying to be inaccurate, but as far as collections go... I collect Michael Crichton as an author but as series go I collect as many star trek books as possible.

    Great to see another Don Robertson collector. Robertson is the only other author I collect as well. I have everything in hardcover except The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread. And I need a copy of Make a Wish with a dj. I'm only missing one or two paperbacks. Most of his later books weren't issued in pb.

    Amazon is showing that Harper is going to reprint TGTSSB in April, but I can't find any confirmation of this on Harper Collins website.

    Awesome collection, idlewarnings! I don't think I've heard of Robertson before, but I'll remember the name now.

    Very nice collection, idlewarnings!

    Yeah, I actually first found the info on the re-release of TGTSSB in a Harper Collins Childrens "Summer 2008 Domestic Rights Guide" document online (now all they have online is the Fall 2008 Guide) late last year, but, as you say, the title itself doesn't seem to appear on their site. Still, if you Google the ISBN 0061452963, many places list it! I've pre-ordered it through Amazon, and I hope it does well, because I think, as Stephen King says, Don Robertson is a fantastic writer, and, unfortunately, relatively unknown...

    The cover art for the new edition TGTSSB is online at [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Greatest-Thing-Since-Sliced-Bread/dp/0061452963/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1205288644&sr=8-1"]amazon[/ame]. There's a quote from King on the cover.

    Oddly, I don't really think of myself as a collector of specific authors' works.... In fact, when I got the Stephen King books that I currently have, I thought, "Wow, my bookshelf now looks like the Stephen King section in a bookstore," and pondered (not seriously) the idea of starting a limited, informal library with all my books, CDs, DVDs, etc....

    But I have sort of collected other authors too, now that I think about it--if by "collected" you mean that I have a significant number of books (say, four or more) by that author, and intended to have that many books by the same author, and have read and enjoyed them. With that definition, then, I'd say I've collected the following authors in chronological order (of the authors' births):



    L. Frank Baum: I have all of his Oz books plus a collection of his short stories about Oz, and also his favorite of his books, Queen Zixi of Ix, or The Story of the Magic Cloak. Actually I'm not sure that counts, since all the Oz books are in a single series (and in a single volume)....

    A. A. Milne: I have his two books of children's verse as well as both his Winnie-the-Pooh books.

    J. R. R. Tolkien: I have The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, of course, but also The Silmarillion, The Tolkien Reader, and The Children of Hurin (just came out last year).

    Dr. Seuss: What? He was an author too, and he was probably the first one (or one of the first) that I ever collected.

    Kenneth Oppel: I have his Silverwing trilogy, plus its prequel Darkwing, and also the books Airborn and Skybreaker. Those are two separate series, so I think that's an exception to my "series count as single books" rule....



    To a lesser extent I've looked at Roald Dahl and Richard Adams, but I don't think I'd call myself collectors of them....

    And yet it wasn't until I started collecting Stephen King works that I really started thinking of myself as a "collector" of an author's works.... Weird....

    Nothing wrong with Dr. Seuss at all.
    A few months back a museum in the North Chicago suburbs had a show of original Dr. Seuss illustrations and I believe some sculptures.

    I really regret missing that, but I didn't find out about it until just before the exhibition closed.

    Yeah, I know what you mean....

    Speaking of Dr. Seuss, I have a book called Dr. Seuss Goes to War, which contains several political cartoons he drew for P. M. Magazine, propagandizing U. S. involvement in World War II. Kind of odd seeing his illustrations associated with such very adult themes....

    I tutor first grade reading in one of the local urban schools and when one of the kids picks a Dr. Seuss book, I'm not sure who enjoys it more, him or me!

    I saw a showing of Dr. Seuss paintings in December, I think in Laguna Beach? (Can't remember, too many beaches in LA/Orange County) He was pretty darn good, I liked it a lot. If I had the money I would have purchased one, there were some affordable ones that were around a thousand.

    I also collect quite a bit of Dean Koontz (and his 267 or so pen names!), F. Paul Wilson (there must be other Repairman Jack fans in this forum!), Robert R. McCammon, and Dan Simmons. Seeing all of the Dan Simmons collectors, is it safe to assume I'm not the only who got turned on to this author after getting Night Visions 5 because of the SK contributions to that book? I was hooked for life after reading Vanni Fucci, and have loved all of his work. As for starting points, if you enjoy SF at all, I'd definitely start with Hyperion. I'd alsao recommend going to the bookstore, picking up "Prayers to Broken Stones", and reading just the intros from Harlan Ellison and Dan Simmons, pretty funny stuff!

    I've enjoyed Dan Simmons ever since I read his first book, Song of Kali. It is truely a masterpiece.

    Shoveler we collect virtually the same authors. I have extensive collections of Simmons, McCammon, Koontz and Wilson. It's uncanny that you listed those four.
    I also collect Peter Straub, King (of course), Ray Garton and, lastly, Anne Rice who I really don't read anymore.

    I just love some of Simmons, and can't/don't want other stuff. The Sci-fi doesn't move me, and his latestand forthcoming seem slow and prodding.
    That being said, Song of Kali, Entropy's Bed at Midnight, Lovedeath, even the Joe Kurtz stuff were mindblowing.

    I collect authors I love to READ, as I'm sure most do here:

    -King
    -Neil Gaiman
    -Alan Moore
    -Dan Simmons
    -Tim Powers
    -Joe Lansdale
    -Ray Garton

    Are the guys that I have to have EVERYTHING from (well, everything humanly possible on a blue collar budget!), but I also actively seek

    -New Sherlock Holmes Editions, or Items
    -Tolkien
    -David J. Schow
    -Caitlin R. Kiernan (a truly fantastic writer, who is criminally under-read)

    The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread has been the lone holdout from my Don Robertson collection for years. I guess I've been waiting for the right copy at the right price. Apparently, $42 is the right price. This is an ex-library copy with glue on the inside boards, stamps on the page ends, and a missing FFEP, but I'm still absolutely thrilled with it. It's tight and clean and square. Except for the faded spine the dustjacket is a peach. I keep taking it off the shelf to admire it. I can't believe I finally own this book.

    Congratulations!
    I am not familiar with the title, but know Don Robertson has written some very interesting books-including 'The Ideal, Genuine Man.
