    As for drooling on my books, well, I don't know, I'll have to think about that!
    I've been seriously collecting for, damn!, 40 years! But I was born a negative 60 years ago so I'm only 20.
    I'm missing some of the early 1st British PBs, but have most of them. I stopped collecting the British editions a few years ago because of the expense, but maybe I'll catch up on those one of these days. I've also been a little dissapointed with some of King's books lately (don't hit me!), so that kind of made me not pursue some of his other editions.
    As for Salem's Lot, I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. I think I paid about $250 for it and had absolutely no idea of it's rarity. But it was nice to find out!
    The thing that interests me with the 'Salem's Lot is that without the crease in the spine.... it wouldn't have come from the Doubleday art department stash.

    So does this mean that some of the $8.95 jackets weren't clipped and WERE available at retail outlets?

    Thoughts??
    As far as I know, and I wasn't there so this could be wrong, there are no jackets with creases, only the four that were in the 'filing cabinet', WITHOUT creases. I have seen speculations that up to a dozen or so of these jackets exist, but it is just speculation as far as I can tell. I DID NOT get mine at a retail outlet. I don't even remember how I found out about the 3 states of the jacket anymore, that was a long time ago.

    I guess it's up to Bob (Carlosdetweiller) to confirm if his 1st state DJ has the spine crease or not. With so few known specimens, statistics in favor of either hypothesis will change dramatically if his DJ has/hasn't got the spine crease

    By the way, I love the way you're presenting the different highlights of your collection (especially the copies of Rage with the Hulk )

    Do you think I should crease mine?
    If the version of the Doubleday story I recall is true, then you would have an EXTREMELY rare, potentially one of a kind book there. No creasing!!

    keep em coming.... great collection! very impressive.

    couple of questions...

    you seem to be pretty much a completist - i saw 2 white on red insomnias.... but no red on white... can't imagine as complete as your collection is you not having one or two... did i just miss them?

    also... since you it seems you bought your limited gunslinger early - do you have a complet set? if so, is it listed on the complete set owners thead here?

    I don't remember why, but I never got the other INSOMNIA. The 2nd one is a book club edition. There are a lot of gaps in my collection, it is nowhere near as complete as I would like it to be.
    I do have a complete set of DARK TOWERS, all the same number, as are Christine, Desperation, etc. The only one I don't have is BLACK HOUSE because I had no money when it was released. I really disliked BLACK HOUSE anyway, so I am not that broken hearted about it.
    I was not aware of the complete set owners thread. Thanks for letting me know about it!

    Your collection is a LOT more complete than mine ever will be. If you say 'gaps', I'm curious, which books would you still like to add to your collection?

    I think a recent update to the site got rid of the straight attachment option.

    Heres what you need to do:

    1) go to tinypic.com (don't need to sign up)
    2) find the file, open it - change the "Resize" option to "Message Board" and hit upload.
    3) Copy the "Direct Link for Layouts"
    4) Hit the insert image button and paste that link.

    5) Your done! Post your image!
