Amazing collection Warren, massive King fan here too and over the years managed to get a few first/unusual editions (though sold/traded most), he's still my go to author.

I'm a tad... no, make it very, jealous!

I cant see anyone getting this collection out of my hands, it's been a long time coming and I'm glad to have finally made a start.

Not sure how much people know about rare and key King first editions, but I just added this to my collection today.

It's an almost pristine condition true 1st/1st. For anyone who knows what that means with regards to this book in particular... as you can imagine I am walking on air today

I don't know if anyone here is familiar with Clive Cussler, but I once got a signed copy of his first book, first edition of The Mediterranean Caper. It was at a garage sale for $0.25!!! I was so excited! I put it in the bookcases with the other books, then didn't think much more about it. Several years later, I noticed it was gone. Someone must have taken it, but I have no idea who.

Very cool, Warren. Does that printing have the color plates throughout? I've the soft-cover first printing of The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger with the color illustrations. It's a bit dog-eared but treasured regardless. I've a couple of the gunslinger graphic novels, too.

Pia - Huge Clive Cussler fan, too. I've read everything until he started collaborating with others. Just not the same. That signed copy going missing is a shame.

Magnificent! Fine work, sir.

Looks like youíre in the market for a Pet Sematary hard copy. Thatís my personal favorite to the point where Iím legit disappointed with Kingís own feelings about the book (although those are his to have, of course). Powerful stuff.

Nice Dark Tower collection too. I myself only have some rando paperbacks that arenít even from the same publisher. Plus I borrowed the first three and no longer have them.

Oh, does King not like Pet Sematary?? It's one of my favourites of his, too...

King's been on the record about this a decent amount, so you can definitely read up on it. But paraphrasing, I think it was a little too heavy and ugly for him. I believe at one point, he suggested it seemed to imply that "nothing works and nothing's worth it." It's heavy, definitely gets ugly, and the lack of answers hurts, as it should and as it does in real life. These are strengths to me and what make the story feel so real and powerful, whereas they seem to make King feel uncomfortable to this day, almost to the point where maybe it wasn't such a good idea to have written it or shared it with people. That's pure speculation on my part and just geeking out, but that's the impression I've gotten.

We're both in agreement that it's probably (definitely) his scariest novel though. I lost sleep up to my 20s from the 1989 movie, not-so-great 80s acting notwithstanding.

It's the only book that actually scared me and kept me awake at night. Was it +/-1984? I remember when and where I read it.

I should really know that! When I'm holding this beauty in my hands I'll let you know, but I'm fairly certain it does.

I'll be adding the graphic novels to my collection at some point, but probably only after I have a complete collection of 1st/1st's.

I filled the Pet Sematary hole the other day, along with The Talisman and Cujo, all 1st/1st's.

Quoted from Warren


Hardcovers all the way! Unless of course the first edition wasn't a hardcover

And speaking of first edition paperbacks, I managed to fill some pretty important holes in my newly acquired collection today; 3 out of 4 of the early Bachman books. Rage will have to wait as that thing is rare and super expensive... if you can even find one. But this was my haul:

Roadwork
The Long Walk (My favourite King book)
The Running man (Love, love, love this book as well)


Update to this...

I scored a copy of Rage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To be fair it's a NEL first edition not a US first edition but still incredibly rare and the only King book that will never be printed again because of the subject matter.

I will still get a US first one day when one pops up, there is actually one currently on eBay but the condition is average at best and it has some water damage. My NEL copy though is near fine.

Score!!!!
