    Paul has done a great job mixing in various blockbuster books with more obscure titles. Something for everyone. Beyond the "anything King-related" books my wish list boils down to three books:

    I know this is a long shot but is there any way to get a pen or something McCammon used in the writing of the book? That would be a great souvenir.

    I'm not usually a big fan of short stories, but McCammon's "Blue World" is as good or better than anything that I've read. Compares favorably with the best of King's short stories.

    Is the "second" cover on the reverse of the outside cover? Didn't want to mess with the book too much but also don't want to throw it away if it was in one of the many boxes that it came in.

    My s/l arrived this morning via FedEx! Had to sign for it. It was packaged like something out of Fort Knox. I got copy #33. King's signature is very small.

    That's an incredibly aggressive publication schedule given the quality of the product and price. I don't know how Paul does it. One downside, though, is that it basically seems to turn anyone who...

    The Lettered BM looks fantastic. Not a big fan of the Numbered, though. The spine design is interesting but it looks very fragile.
