    Hi all!

    Tim here, 33. I have always been an avid reader, and first discovered SK when I was 10 and my older brother left a paperback copy of The Shining out. It was the one with the cover that Paul Suntup decided to print here:

    https://shop.suntup.press/collection...t=811699961866

    so I have ordered two of those prints as gifts - one to myself and one for my brother.

    I started collecting about 5 years ago, slowly at first, but now I'm completely hooked. I'm a completist by nature so I don't think I can ever start seriously collecting SK because there's simply too much! But I do like first editions, proofs, and limiteds of my favorite of his works.

    In general, I collect books by my favorite authors (SK, Tim Powers, Gore Vidal, Richard Laymon, and others), first editions and limited editions of any books I enjoyed reading, and I have a particular soft spot for books that are beautifully or unusually bound, regardless of content.

    My biggest collection is Centipede Press, which hits the sweet spot of limited editions of books I enjoyed reading and books that are nicely bound. As a completist, CP is interesting because in the early days there were often several states of the limited editions and it's interesting to see how they evolved. One day I might be able to complete the full collection and I am in the process of making peace with the fact that they won't all have matching numbers .

    I've stumbled across these boards several times in the past when searching for Cemetery Dance, Sub Press, and Centipede Press info, and have lurked for awhile. I was hesitant to make an account because I'm not a full fledged SK collector, but there simply aren't that many outlets for book collectors in general to talk about collecting and to compare notes, and this seems like a welcoming and generous community even if SK is not the focus of one's collection.

    I'm very glad I finally signed up!
    Looking for the following Centipede Press books:
    • Any book with limitation number #52
    • Chimera #2 (any #)
    • Don Brautigam Portfolio with Brautigam & Koontz signature (any #)
    • Deluxe (Roman Numeral) editions
    • ARC/Proofs

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?
    My parents had a copy of Wizard and Glass, which they kept on their shelf, after attempting to read it, I discovered that it was part of a series. At the time I didn't have the internet so I couldn't just buy it; I roamed charity shops hoping to find a copy of The Gunslinger, but I found nothing aside from The Wastelands (but I felt I couldn't start there either). Eventually I saved enough money to purchase the revised version from Waterstones, thus began my journey.

    Who is your favourite character?
    I would say The Man In Black, or Randell Flagg, if you will.

    What is your favourite book?
    My favourite book from the series is The Wastelands. My favourite book in general? Clive Barker's The Great and Secret Show, though I'm re-reading a lot of my King books (including The Dark Tower books) so that may get thrown off of it's pedestal at some point.

    How old are you?
    Young, 18.

    Where are you from?
    England.

    Do you have a nickname?
    Data, because I'm full of useless information.

    How did you find this site?
    I looked up The Dark Tower, and there this website was.

    I'm currently sorting out my account, so my apologies if something looks 'off'.

    Welcome, folks! It's so much more than just a SK site. Little something for everyone.

    Peripheral, I can't help but notice that your profile pic is an art piece by Matthew Barney for his cremaster series.
