    Congratulations George, that is an excellent addition to your collection. Great book and another matching number.

    I bought it on release, received number 172 about 16 years ago

    Recently realised that my near 3 year old was born on 17.2.17

    Nice little tenuous link there, date.month 172. Just found my number 😊

    I love that edition! Congrats!!!!!!
    Thank you David!
    Beautiful. Definitely on my want-list. Congrats.
    It really wasn't on my want list UNLESS it was my number; then Holy Shit!
    Congrats, George! A prize for sure! And Zaius is good people. He sold me a handful of King S/Ls and encouraged me to sign up here.
    Yeah he is!
    Wow! That's an awesome pick-up! Be sure to Mylar the whole thing... the black cloth is a dust and finger print magnet.
    Yep, already done!
    Awesome grab. SKís best signed
    I think there might be some counter-arguments from the crowd on that one, but it is nice!
    There is a big one Congrats!
    Having never seen or held one in person, I really had no idea how big it was; this thing is a shelf-bender!
    Congratulations George thatís a beauty!
    Yeah it is!
    A big congrats on the Salems'. It's a great ed. I am still on the hunt.
    They pop up a few times a year it seems, just a matter of getting lucky & having the funding; I got lucky AND Greg gave me a payment plan, so lucky on both accounts!

    Keeping on theme with Georgeís post, hereís something you donít see everyday. Forgive me for the artsy photos, but since I never dreamed Iíd be taking pictures of my own copy of this book, I couldnít resist going a little overboard.

    Hereís the story, I happened to take a tired glance at eBay around 3 AM my time, just before closing my eyes and going to sleep, and saw this beauty freshly listed by a seller in Australia. I knew if I slept on it the book would be gone by the time I woke up, or somebody would have bid on it (it was an auction with BIN option), so I had to make a quick decision. While I was tempted to bid myself, I had no doubt in my mind that an auction would end up going over the BIN price. Or just as bad, an eager buyer would contact the seller and try to make a deal outside of eBay, and the seller might cancel any bids and end the listing. So I basically had two choices: I could buy it or I could always regret not buying it.

    As you can see, I went with the first option, so I am delighted to share with you 1 of the 4 unnumbered deluxe copies of the Centipede Press Salemís Lot.











    The page block is truly amazing






    I couldnít help taking this picture!

As that's "my" matching number I was pretty happy to see it and of course dropped Greg a note asking details and price. I figured it was the CD or PS edition; it never even OCCURED to me that it might be the Centipede edition ... until he came back with a price a whole lot higher than I was expecting! It actually didn't process when I first read it, I was thinking "He's outta his mind" until it hit me that it had to be the CP. Absolutely floored me, wasn't even on my radar for ever finding!

    A few quick emails (mostly me saying "Holy Shit!") and the deal was done; couldn't be happier to receive this one in! A huge shout out to Greg for hooking me up!

    Glad to help a brother out - enjoy!
