    Don't worry. They're your books and you should enjoy them. To miss out on the pleasure and enjoyment they provide is to miss the point completely.
    Very true and thatís a great point. I couldnít agree more, really. I guess what makes me worry is the possibility that one day Iíll need to sell some of my collection to pay for an emergency, for example. The value from Fine to Near Fine seems to be a huge difference in many cases. It does seem ridiculous sometimes that I have these amazingly produced books that Iím missing out on 90% of the experience by only ever really seeing the spine or the case itís in. What I do now is look through the special books while I read a reading copy. That way I at least get to see the art and finish reading the book with the last few pages of the special edition.
    To each their own. I have read my Centipede 'Salem's Lot once a year since publication and the pleasure I have derived from each of those readings along with the anticipation as the next year's re-reading date approaches is priceless. The fact that SL is my all-time favorite book plays a huge role in the overall experience but if I had the coffin limited of The Stand or was getting the Suntup limited or deluxe Misery I would do the same.
    Go ahead and pull your favorite one off the shelf and give it a spin!

    Happy surprise!

    I order a couple of things from ABEBooks, nothing spectacular. Imagine my surprise when I opened the package!





    Love the way King slants the letters, big to small!

    Originally I was only going to order only the Letters from Hell Prospectus, but I thought let me see what else this seller has.

    It wasn't advertised as being signed? Either way, that's an awesome inscription!

    I just wanted to post a quick THANK YOU for including the link to your collection thread. I might just be dumb (no comments from the peanut gallery, please!), but whenever someone says there are more pics in their collection thread, I always seem to have trouble finding it. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place??

    Also, it's a beautiful edition! Congrats!

    ...it's getting late, you don't like anything on TV, and you're hanging around on TDT but there's no new comments on the main threads you're following, so you decide to dip into some collections for a few minutes...

    ...and then it's 1:30 AM and you remember you have work in the morning.
    Attention should be paid more often than respect.

    I bugged the shit out of Paul Suntup. I sincerely did.. still do even. I am surprised he even still talks to me at times! When he put out the rebound Eyes of the Dragon I was blown away. I begged and pleaded for him to do more... as others did. He relented. Firestarter was announced and floored the King community. I told Paul I really wanted him to do IT. IT is my favorite book and I knew he would give it the treatment it needed. As it turned out, there was already something brewing on that front. I was friendly with the artist (Bob Gusiti) of the original book and had did some business with him in the past. I told Paul I could help and get him on board. Paul was hesitant.. but I kept 'bugging'. I had my case maker at the time mock up the case and of course Paul took it to a WHOLE other level. He says to me... he wants to make them out of cast iron. I thought it was one of the best ideas ever. You have all seen that is a fact. Paul Suntup is a master at his craft and will be to his days end. This little story is to share why my copy is different from the other 26 produced. Bob Gusiti does not do remarques. When we were discussing the book and and what Paul was trying to do vision wise we talked about them. He was not having it so I left it. I have great respect for Bob, so him agreeing to sign signature sheets was amazing in itself. When I got them, he ended up doing a remarque for me. You see it in the other ones above all the signatures, but mine is double signed as Paul needed to letter it and do the Balloon information on how it was made. He had done the little remarque above his signature on a sheet. I am HONORED to have it. I will cherish this forever.
    PS: I ALMOST forgot... another chap I know decided to throw an extra signature in there too
