    Curious as to how many of the Asbestos Lettered Firestarter editions are either owned by Members of this Forum or, at a minimum, the whereabouts are known.

    Just post your Letter and I'll update the list. If you don't own a particular Letter, but know who does, let us know.

    Alec has letter U.

    (it's on his collection thread, so I'm sure he wont mind me stating it)
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Mike's copy was letter M, I believe. Gerald has several copies (including prototype) but I don't know the letters.

    To follow up on the Gerald connection, when I saw him last fall he showed me the copy he had on hand and mentioned it was heading "back to Japan" and that the owner was nice enough to let Gerlad keep it for a while to display. I did not catch the letter either, say sorry.

    Looks like ownership or, at a minimum, whereabouts of 9 of the 26 have been accounted for. One could conclude that the remaining 17 reside with private collectors or have been trashed, scrapped or caught fire.

    Last one sold for $17,500 at Betts. From my perspective, given scarcity, likely worth every bit of it, if not more.

    I would concur with AKC that the remainder are in private collections.
    Some may well have been read or damaged, however it would be my guess that there are a lot more private collectors that prefer to remain below the radar, than we give credence to.

    I was curious about this thread's existence when I didn't see it in the first 4 pages of threads. Now that I found it, I'm a bit surprised that it hasn't been updated in 2+ years! Not even a bump for currency. All I can add is that letter "A" belongs to Alex Berman and letter "O" will change hands next week -- along with Kris now owning letter "Z."

    So for that letter O being auctioned at Heritage, is the front cover splitting off? Of is that some illusion? There is no mention of it in the description.

    A thread front page will only get updated when there's a change AND if one of the mods here "owns" the thread; as AKC isn't with us anymore, this one got marooned.

    I'll pick it up; master list updated for Letters A, O and Z. Any other changes out there that anyone is aware of?

    Thanks for pointing it out John.

    I think it's just a reflection; there's no mention of that kind of damage in the description. But it does look remarkably like a split and frayed cloth cover.
