    Thank you. Look forward to seeing what you are working on and the new adds to your collection.

    Wonderful, just wonderful.
    Sadly fewer signed 1st editions on display compared to a few years ago. However you have certainly gained some ground with these latest purchases.
    The signed “It” proof is fabulous, that really does deserve a tray case of its own.
    Congratulations Elliot. First class.

    Thank you Alec. Always much appreciated. It would be nice to see more people display their collections, especially signed firsts. I never thought of a tray case for the It proof. I'll definitely have to try to get something done on that front. Thanks again!

    Some new additions:

    I came across this while surfing around recently and thought it was a pretty cool Stephen King calendar. This was a bookseller incentive for promoting the paperback release of The Eyes of the Dragon.

    !988: The Year of Stephen King:



    I wanted something to protect and display my IT proof. Instead of trying to get a custom traycase made, I found a wood box that I thought would fit the bill. So with a little bit of customizing, I came up with this. I don't think it came out too shabby.

    IT presentation box:



    Inscribed Gerald's Game:



    I've been searching for a Stephen King inscription where he wished someone a Happy Halloween for some time now. As we are now officially in October, somehow, somewhere something aligned for me and I finally came across a Halloween inscription. Now, to be honest, this did put me temporarily in the red but it was well worth it. I've learned the hard way, when an opportunity has arisen and I've passed on it, I never get that opportunity again. So I clicked add to cart. For a 40+ year old insert and book, they were both in amazing shape.

    The Monkey insert from the November 1980 Gallery magazine as well as The Book of the Sixth World Fantasy Convention 1980 with a photo of King from the signing:

    Some new adds - October-November:

    Nakatomi Cycle of the Werewolf Portfolio:

    Rose Madder inscribed to Philip Rosenthal(television writer and producer who is the creator, writer, and executive producer of the CBS sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond):

    Thanks. It was a productive couple of months. Wallet is a little thin though.

    Elliot; you post so many jaw dropping pictures of outrageous King collectibles. Hard to make a comprehensive flattering post, but I must say I love the Bachman Books! Rare Rare Rare.

    I agree with Mike, awesome stuff.
    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...
