    We can always start with the front cover. At any time additional images can be added.
    I just think it would add the the site to have a Proof catalog.
    The only other bug in the soup issue is that whomever submits the scans needs to help by providing the basic info-Title, pub year, etc. etc.
    No need to rush, but it would be/will be another valuable addition to the site.

    I do have a scanner and 9 or 10 proofs/arcs, etc. If I can find time, I'll help you out.

    In fact, put me down for:

    On Writing ( Scribners ARC in pictoral wraps)
    Hearts In Atlantis (Scribners ARC in pictoral wraps)
    Bag of Bones (Scribners ARC in pictoral wraps)
    Rose Madder (Viking Proof in maroon wraps)
    From a Buick 8 (Scribners Proof in light blue wraps)
    Desperations (Viking Proof in white wraps *with Steven King*)
    Insomnia (Viking Proof in red and white wraps)
    Wizard and Glass (Grant proof in white wraps *excluding art*)
    Lisey's Story (Scribners ARC in wraps with facsimile letter on front)

    and if you want:

    Prime Evil (NAL ARC in black wraps)

    I'll get these in the next few weeks (I'll be in Hawaii late next week).

    Do you think we need a scan of the back, if it's completely blank????

    How rare is the Random House uncorrected proof of Black House??? Anyone guess what the market value would be?

    It's not the scarcest of King's US proofs, but it should still go in the $200-300 range.

    It was in really worn condition though. Not a true example of current pricing in my opinion.

    Yes, I believe it had some serious water damage. I'll hold out for a better copy.

    Thanks, John. Proofs are so hard to judge, because we don't know the exact print run on many of them.

    Stephen King BLOW OUT SALE - 26 PROOFS & ARCS CHEAP

    Critical Path are selling a lot of 26 proofs in NF+ to VF condition.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Stephen-King-BLO...QQcmdZViewItem

    I wonder if I should start a proof collection?

    It's not a bad price for what you get, if no-one goes much higher. The four Green Mile proofs go for about $200 each anyway.

    There's only one proof in the whole thing that I don't have--the Gallery of Horror one--so I'm not interested for myself.

    I can think of worse ways for starting!

    It would be worth it for a newbie. As of now it's under $50.00 per proof, and they look to be in great shape.

    I would say yes too, but I think the site would explode! Either that, or we would all die of heart failure and there would be no one left to enjoy them.

    Ah, what the heck, bring 'em on!
    Captain, Road Prison 36 : What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.

    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

    It would be a fast start! Most of those I don't have. Oh, I also don't have $1000.00!!!

    I'll build my collection one piece at a time.
