    I am the source of the photo of the unbound UK proof but not for the US proofs. Hutch and Pasiuk57 are the only ones that have the blue/gray US proof that I know of.

    This is from e-mail four years ago:

    Received this wonderful post on SK Collector from Michael at Fine Edition Books in the UK (they also have two pristine copies of Twice the Power for sale, if you're looking to add a copy to your collection):

    The collectors of Stephen King proofs in general and TWICE THE POWER in particular may be interested to know that Hodder printed the sheets and (blue wrappers) for a solo proof of the UK hardcover edition of FOUR PAST MIDNIGHT, but abandoned the project in favour of the TWICE THE POWER omnibus. To the best of my knowledge, only one flat, mint set of the unbound sheets of the solo FOUR PAST MIDNIGHT proof survives, complete with an immaculate, flat blue wrapper.

    TWICE THE POWER was not inexpensive to manufacture and is, therefore, in correspondingly short supply. A dozen battered copies were given to booksellers at the 1991 UK Fantasy Con in London - which is almost certainly the portal through which they escaped into the wicked world of the collector - but pristine copies are and always were in very short supply.
    The FOUR PAST MIDNIGHT solo proof sheets are almost certainly unique.

    Thanks for the great information Michael. Anyone know anything about the flat, unbound sheets set he talks about? And it would be great to be able to tie anyone's copies directly to the 1991 UK Fantasy Con; perhaps an insert from the event, or something along those lines. If anyone has more info on the items mentioned, please let us know.

    Hi George. Thank you for your kind words. I still have the complete set of unbound sheets of FOUR PAST MIDNIGHT, with an extra set of the SUN DOG pages. Still pristine and stored in a tailor-made Hodder box. Also still have the Sphere Books GUNSLINGER proof. Am looking for Grant limited ed no. 880 of DRAWING OF THE THREE. All the best .Michael
