I've enjoyed reading about everybody else's collections, so I thought I'd start a collection of my own.

Stephen King
Secretary of Dreams Volume 1 Gift Edition
Secretary of Dreams Volume 2 Gift Edition
It Gift Edition
The Green Mile (SubPress) Gift Edition
Under the Dome Collector's Edition
Stephen King Goes to the Movies (SubPress)
Nearly all of his other books in first edition...

Sadly, I don't have any books signed by King. :(

Orson Scott Card
First Meetings S/L 78/350 (SubPress)
Ender's Game Signed Easton Press
A War of Gifts Signed First Edition
Ender in Exile S/L 41/100
Speaker for the Dead Easton Press
Speaker for the Dead Signed First
Xenocide S/L 166/300
Children of the Mind S/L 74/100
Ender's Shadow Signed ARC
Shadow of the Hegemon S/L 36/100
Shadow Puppets S/L W/100
Shadow of the Giant S/L 26/100
Shadows in Flight Signed First

I also have ARCs and first editions of many of his other books; most of them are signed. Of note is an Easton Press signed first edition of Maps in a Mirror. I'd really like to get my hands on a S/L copy of Ender's Shadow. However, they're usually way overpriced when they come on the market.

Other Authors
Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon S/L (SubPress)
Angel's Game S/L (SubPress)
The Exorcist 40th Anniversary Edition S/L PC
Pillars of the Earth Inscribed to Me by Ken Follet
Franklin Library Copy of Dante's Divine Comedy
Signed Copies of Shivers I & Shivers III, Unsigned Copy of Shivers VII
Walpuski's Typewriter

Codered: Ender's Game was issued by Easton Press in a limited signed format. You can also get the original novellette in a signed limited, I think it's called First Meetings, Sub. Press released it.

One of my most wanted has been found! I was able to snag Angel's Game on eBay cheap.

Pictures to come tomorrow! I promise!

My EP version of Ender's Game is the most I've ever paid for a book... $290. I know that is nothing compared to what some folks spend on a regular basis on this forum, but until recently, I was a poor graduate student!

That's probably about the same as the most as I have spent on one book.

I spent $600 on EP's The Kelmscott Chaucer. But I was able to pay it off in monthly installments, otherwise, I never would have gotten it.

Damn!!!! I think the closest I've spent that much on anything for "myself", which doesn't include house, car, essentials.... was probably the $350.00 I dropped on my last pair of skates (and they were a good deal on sale too). LOL

1. Ender's Shadow S/L
2. Ender's Game S/L
3. Doctor Sleep Gift Edition (Help me out, Cemetery Dance!)
4. SubPress NOS4A2 by Joe Hill

7. Lord of the Rings / Hobbit in Either Easton Press or Folio Society (Widely available, but not in my price point.)

I really need to update this thread. I'll do that this weekend. But here's my latest addition, from the event in Kansas City. The signature looks a bit funny to me: his hand must have been getting tired!
