    Default Book Collection: Elliot HP Spencer

    So, I've always been a collector, ever since I was a kid, be it comic books, toys, books. But I've only been collecting King for a few years. Always loved King, Barker and all things horror but had told myself to try to stay away from collecting King because of the cost and addictive nature of collecting him. Of course I failed. Collecting Stephen King is like when you get your first tattoo or you're eating potato chips, you just can't stop at one.

    With that, I'd like to showcase some of the items in my collection. I'm not much of a photographer so nothing fancy and in no particular order.

    Oy:



    CHRISTINE Signed 4/22/83, at Library signing in Billerica Mass.:



    Dead Zone inscribed at the 1979 FIFTH WORLD FANTASY CONVENTION:




    Inscribed Firestarter:



    Twilight Zone Magazine Annual signed by most contributors and King:



    Eyes of the Dragon #966 inscribed:



    COTW:
    Missing the original slipcase. Replaced with one from the great SK Collector.



    Insomnia:



    Night Shift:



    The Tommyknockers:



    One non-King sneaked in.
    Mefisto in Onyx by Harlan Ellison- Death Cell edition:



    More to come...

    Beautiful Elliot.
    Cannot get enough of the signed, inscribed section.
    You certainly have some delightful pieces.

    Thank you. Very honored. I really enjoy finding and collecting inscribed editions. I find I enjoy that more than collecting flat signed and/or limited editions. I especially like finding ones with quirky or unusual inscriptions.

    I am curious.
    What did you have Harlan Ellison write in your Mefisto?
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    I've always wanted a lettered edition of Mephisto In Onyx. Been looking (passively) for years. I do have the S/L, and 1st hardcover. It's also a great short story. Of course Ellison is a great writer.

    Agreed on Ellison and the story.
    I got this by pure happenstance, a few years ago. The dealer I bought this from, found this and another book I bought, in a storage locker he won in an auction.
    It's a bit pricey but Camelot Books has a copy for sale.

    Default Some newer and older adds.

    The Talisman was in OK shape but the low price and inscription was well worth it.

    I love the UK cover art to King's novels. I have to try to find more for my collection.

    These are delightful Elliot, everyone relating a time and an event.
    Signed limiteds and lettereds are still a massive part of any King collection, still cannot help thinking how much more history these carry.
    Lovely examples.

    Thank you Alec. Always appreciated! While I have a bunch of King lettered and limiteds and I love a well produced limited, I agree with your sentiment, there's a story and history behind the inscriptions that I find adds an extra level of enjoyment to my collecting experience.
