The last order I got from PS arrived unannounced a couple weeks so I'm hoping this arrives soon, unannounced.
I like the slipcase and am glad the artwork is uncovered, at least on the side shown in T-Dogz's photo.

Next to be included in this collection thread is my Gift Edition of Insomnia. For many years this has been the most prized Stephen King book that I have owned. Until fairly recently, I had absolutely no idea of how to get hold of a signed edition outside of trying to source one through Waterstone's (virtually impossible). It was only when I accidentally stumbled across the Cemetery Dance website that I realised. :D

Beautiful copy! Haven't read it myself. How is it compared to King's other work? Is it horror?

Beautiful copy! Haven't read it myself. How is it compared to King's other work? Is it horror?

I found it to be a mixture of horror/fantasy, as it draws quite heavily on the Dark Tower. I thought it was enjoyably creepy but I can also understand when people say it is rather slow paced, as Stephen King takes his time to flesh out the characters somewhat.

It's not my favourite Stephen King book but it is still a very good read. :)

Next to feature on my collection thread is my copy of The Exorcist 40th Anniversary edition. Deeply upset that I missed the opportunity to buy a copy of this awesome book when it was first announced, I thought my chances of getting hold of a copy without being scalped by sellers on Abebooks or Ebay, was zero.

However, with Dan's kind assistance, I have now managed to get my paws on a PC copy Lettered Edition that is also remarqued by the artist Caniglia. :D :cool:

The signature page shows that this copy was mis-numbered at the publication stage and was then marked as a PC copy. This doesn't bother me too much as I managed to save an absolute fortune on the cost of this particular copy and it is still the same book as any other S/L edition with all the production values that I adore about CD:

My next entry is the absolutely awesome, Centipede Press deluxe edition of The Anubis Gates by Tim Powers. One of the greatest science fiction/fantasy novels ever published, The Anubis Gates takes literary history, lycanthropy, the Knights Templar, and a bizarre cast of characters into one of the most original and memorable time travel stories ever published. This book is one of my personal favourites of all time and I am thrilled to have a copy of the Centipede Press edition in my collection:

Yeah, I contact the artists direct to arrange remarques. It is a risk when it comes to shipping it to them though. If you are thinking of sending your book to an artist for a remarque in the future, the best thing to do is remove the dust jacket on the book and just send the book to the artist without the slipcase/traycase with it. This way, not only are you removing the risk of these getting damaged in the post, but the book will also be lighter without the slipcase/traycase and therefore will cost less to post to the artist. :)

I would love to see the remarque you got for your PS edition of Christine. Did you get Tomislav Tikulin or Jill Baumann to remarque it?

jigertz
03-04-2015, 05:30 AM
Jill Baumann remarqued it, and I love it. I also couldn't believe how reasonable her price was. It's one of the remarques of Christine posted on stephenkingcollector.com (and I'm pretty sure it's in my collection thread on here).

I was bummed about the damage. Even contacted PS to see if they had any extra slipcases they could sell, and they were out.

Since I don't plan on selling it anyway, I decided to just let it go. And it's better to have a small tear on the back of the slipcase than damage to the dust jacket. And the remarque is amazing.
