    Thanks everybody. I also have the same opinion. Among the red flags for me is the "For" that looks like nothing compared to the existing signatures especially around the time : https://www.signedanddated.info/

    Itís so awesome to be able to get a collective opinion about different signatures. I got completely screwed on my first ďautographedĒ book. It looked fine (to my untrained eye) in the photos, but in person it was a very obvious forgery. Doctor Sleep. I got it cheap by auction, which should have warned me then, but I was younger and dumber. I was so disgusted one night that I scribbled through the forgery - now I have a very expensive reading copy.

    I wonít ever buy a signature again, unless itís a S/L or comes from someone reputable. No more eBay sigs!

    The seller wasn't really pleased when I told him it was a fake.
    He replied "Being a fan doesn't make you an expert. Furthermore you are trashing my uncle's memory. Do not contact me anymore and stay jealous"

    (The story with his uncle is that he says in the description that his uncle brought the book to the USA and brought it back signed after a public broadcast of 'The Stand' miniseries where he met King". Apparently he was a special effects consulting on the series, whose name doesnt seem to appear on this page : https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108941...?ref_=tt_ql_cl)

    This is a classic ploy: concoct some bogus story to make the listing appear more credible. When they immediately go on the defensive after being called out is also very common. There are, however, some sellers who appear "genuinely concerned" when informed they're selling a forgery.

    I think it's one of King's newer cramped style sigs. I say legit.
    The Insomnia is a beautiful signature. Congrats to the jbenz.

    Quick question : did Stephen King's assistants used autopen when they were signing for him?
    Was autopen mechanism ever used in the King world, or just facsimile?

    Also, when a letter was signed : "SK/ss"
    Any idea of who was "ss"?
