    * The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon Proof with Letter by King.
    * The Gunslinger 1st Grant
    * If it Bleeds US proof

    * At least 1 more book signed by King of the 43 I'm missing.
    * At least 1 S/L KING books of the 11 I'm missing.
    * At least 1 S/L non-King book that has his signature out of the 30 I'm missing.

    My goals are suuuuper simple:

    Whatever Suntup numbered editions I can snag. Maybe a King?

    All the books I have coming from CD.

    The two lettered editions I have coming from DRP.

    The rest of the Series 3 Little Books including the promised King installment.

    The other two SST Lansdale Collections and whatever else Paul has cookiní.

    All of these are my current income goals. If income drastically improves Iíll hunt out a Numbered Suntup Misery.

    My goals are pretty simple, or should be:
    Cycle of the Werewolf 1st
    Pretty much anything S/L (as long as I can swing it money-wise).

    King goals are pretty simple:
    - Gunslinger S/L
    - Gunslinger 2nd printing (1984)
    - nice copy of NEL IT Collectors Edition PB
    - UK S/L, trades, and WHSmith/Waterstones editions of new King books.

    I may divest myself of a few King S/Ls this year. Not getting out of the game, just focusing a bit more.

    Non-King goals is a much longer list. Some specific Lettered editions (see my sig). More Suntup. Specific forthcoming titles from small publishers that have been announced by not yet preorderable.

    Besides Suntup, who knows. I would like to try and finish my 1st/1st set. As for S\L My dream books are Salem's Lot, and The Green Mile. Plus a 2nd state Salems'. I have given up on Misery. After that, who knows. I sort of go with the wind.

    I'd like to get a Night Shift 1st/1st even though I need all the Doubleday. That book and Salem's Lot were my first two King reads in the late '70s and they both hold special places in my heart. I'd also like to get the CD Doubleday books as I missed them because I wasn't collecting for a few years. Anything else I get will probably be whatever deals happen when they happen.

    Picked up the CD Doubledays.

    My top want for 2020 is the same as last year: a signed first edition of IT. Other than that I will continue to fill holes in the signed first edition collection as things turn up on the market. Happy New Year everyone.

    The number one goal for 2020 collecting is to stay healthy enough to keep collecting. I know I'll have to have surgery again, but if I can keep the hole/ulcer from getting too big, I can postpone the surgery perhaps until next January. I have a few things working but I won't say anything until everything has been finalized. Here are some specifics, though.

    1) Find another 15 signed books to top 250.
    2) Would like to find 40-50 proofs -- starting from zero again, I hope I can make it happen.
    3) Replace the missing numbered books that I sold for no good reason in 2016 and 2017. I think I'm down to needing 5-7 right now.
    4) Finding Fine bookcases for my German books -- Sie, Duddits, Nebel, etc.
    5) Stay healthy!!!

    Fingers crossed.

    How about staying alive?

    Funnily enough, I re-registered to the gym after not going for a year. And that same week, the country is on lockdown....

    My main goal is completing the DT S/L set. I have books 3-9 as S/L (not matching numbers, though) but my Gunslinger is only an as-new second edition and my DotT is a 1st signed by Hale.
    I do have another full set, comprised of the Grant gift set of the first three (3rd, 2nd 1st), a Grant 1st of W & G, and Grant artist editions of 5-9.

    Of course, I think that's a given for everyone. And I should have been more clear when I said staying healthy.

    I've been relegated to my bed for 3-4 months in each of the last 2 summers due to surgeries to repair a Stage IV sacral ulcer. I missed 1,000 hours of work last year and 600 hours the previous year. The ulcer reappeared last December but it is only a fraction of what it was. I need more surgery but by staying healthy (the ulcer doesn't get bigger, I don't get anything else that keeps me away from work), I can earn Sick Leave and Annual Leave so that I'll still get paid once I finally have the surgery. Hoping to stay healthy until surgery in January, 2021. Hope that clears up any confusion regarding my words "staying healthy."
