Thanks Martin :). I'll post as they arrive. I have a ton of what I call "Daily Drivers" down in the basement, mostly King, but figure everyone has seen those so no reason to post em.

As beginnings go, that's pretty sweet. I myself would like to see your "daily drivers". I hate to speak for everyone else but we are book fans that is why we are here, to say nothing of how they are presented, shelves, bookcases, racks etc. Bring it on! Mike

First of all guys I'd like to thank you each for encouraging me to post em. They have been boxed up in my basement for a few years since our last (and hopefully final) move. Although I did discover my son has been going into the boxes from time to time to pull a few to read. I actually found that very encouraging, considering all the distractions todays youth have, to actually take the time to read an actual book not on a screen. Nothing wrong with that mind you, just hasn't caught on with me yet. And thanks to CD for lighting the fire in me to read again with all the amazing projects that they do and to start my own collection late in the game. Anyway, hoping I'm doing this right.........

Brian861
09-09-2015, 09:37 PM
Also while going through the boxes, I discovered a few holes in my King collection of the trade stuff. Some I found out my son had as stated above. Maybe my daughter has some at her place too. If not, I guess they got lost in all the moves :-(. Here's the unfinished room I like to keep "the good stuff" in one of these days. 17077

Yea, it's all over the place Martin. Probably like my collectables will be lol. Not sure on A Time to Kill. It doesn't say on the copy right page. 'Salem's Lot Illustrated Edition is a first edition if it's of any significance.

I'm quite impressed with your vastly differing collection. So glad you posted pics. Also smart move on picking the slipcases first as they are harder to find once sold out and CD does an awesome job with them. Looking forward to more as they begin to pile up on you. Mike

Thanks Mike. I appreciate that. I know several have posted they are readers first, collectors second. I kinda see myself going in the opposite direction to some extend anyway. I probably won't read everything I collect but, to me, doesn't mean I can't appreciate it just the same. But I completely agree Mike. The slipcases are worth every penny. I'm gonna purchase the Bazaar one tonight.

Another ebay pickup that arrived today.

1708617087

Picked these up at a local mom and pop. Extremely nice and knowledgeable older lady. She too said she'd always be a reader before a collector. Maybe I am doing this wrong lol. She made me an offer of $100 on Riding the Bullet from Lonely Road and $150 for a numbered edition of Doctor Sleep from CD. Doctor Sleep is still in the plastic wrap and Riding the Bullet, although not wrapped, is in pristine condition. Good offers on both?

Both of those prices seem comparable with what you can get them for on ABE books. I would always buy from a local family business when possible and they seem reasonable there.

I think that's a little low for a numbered edition. Is it the gift edition? . The gift edition of Riding the Bullet seems about on target.

It'd have to be the gift edition I agree as it was in a slipcase and not a traycase. She may have thought the gift editions were numbered as well.

Returned to the mom and pop today and picked this up. "Mom" reneged on her initial offer yesterday for Doctor Sleep at $150. She claimed that Amazon sell prices were higher for the book and tacked on another $100 bucks. While we didn't shake on the deal yesterday, I advised her that (in my opinion) that wasn't a very good business practice. I guess I should have just picked it up yesterday but wanted to conduct my own research, i.e. get your opinions. Needless to say, it isn't pictured here.......

Tell her to look at eBay sold auctions, since that actually shows what the book is selling for. Amazon sellers can ask whatever they want, but they'll never make a dime if no one is willing to pay their price.

Edit: And frankly, after she raised the price like that, I'd have told her she just permanently lost a customer.

I did tell her that wasn't a good bar to go by but honestly didn't push the issue. I posted last night that she was knowledgeable. Maybe I spoke too soon. I almost didn't buy the other book from her but I haven't had much luck finding it elsewhere for reasonable and didn't want my pride to get the best of me. I might check around to see if I can find another copy local. If not, I figure my money spends just as well on eBay. I see no need to return to her place of business.

Brian, that 'The Shining' photo on the right shows the 'dangers' of shrink wrap, as per your question in your other thread.

Do you mean where it appears to be pressing the sides of the slipcase against the book? Or was there something else I'm missing? Wrapping has seen been removed. Photos were snapped right out of the box. Should have waited until it was removed. The cover on this book is wicked good.

Brian861
09-23-2015, 08:36 AM
Also gang in reference to slipcovers, I've got all my Dark Tower 1st Editions here with the exception of The Gunslinger, which I'm pretty close to pulling the trigger on, but would you guys recommend the individual slipcases offer by "The Collector" or the slipcases offered by Grant? Me personally I'd think it would be better to keep them housed separately instead of together but there's a lot more expense involved going that route vs. with Grant's. Thanks as always.

Yes, not sure how long a slipcase could be wrapped like that before the bend is permanent.
Some great additions - even though I strongly disliked 'Insomnia', that edition is fantastic. Ziesing did some quality books in the 80/90's.

Thanks! The cover on it is pretty wicked also. I really enjoyed "Insomnia". "Revival" is the one I didn't care for at all. That being said, I'm sure I'll end up with the UK edition just because.......

Did another close inspection after reading these and I'm happy to report all the corners are nice and sharp. Not sure if glare or the shrink-wrap itself was causing it to appear that way.

Thank you Sir! I was going to branch out to all types of stuff but I thought it better to try and have some sort of containment lol. Otherwise it gets out of control and crazy expensive so King will be my main focus. I'll probably keep some non-King CD stuff that comes with the clubs. Big fan of Brian's stuff also but I'm still waiting on a few things before I post what I have so far of his.

Thanks! Me too on The Shining, it's a pretty cool edition with some amazing artwork. I was really on the fence with "IT" but decided to go ahead and pull the trigger on it. I definitely should have grabbed this edition when it was first offered at CD. Would have saved myself some wallet hurt for sure. Also I don't ever see it getting any cheaper to obtain so I thought I'd better get while the getting was good.

For clarity's sake, that's not a CD edition of Joyland you have on order. That edition is still being done by Hard Case Crime, CD is just offering one of their slipcases (though you can also buy the book from them at the same time).

Probably will be eating ramen for a while but hey, ya only live once right?! I was really amazed when I opened up Centipede's edition. Wow, had no idea how big that book was! I went cheap and didn't get the traycase with it. Regretting that now. I'll have to have one made or at least a slipcase. I didn't care for Revival all that much but had to have it for my collection all the same. Still, I feel, like with most things, folks should try things out for themselves.

Your collection has been growing at a staggering rate! I'm really jealous of the Green Mile from Sub. Press. I've really been wanting a copy myself! I agree about 'Salem's Lot, I too was astounded at the size of that beast when my copy arrived. Fantastic edition, I just wish it had the photography included.

I'm jealous of the Viking reprints of The Dark Tower. I need (NEED!) the first three volumes and eBay is always out of line. Of course, I haven't put forth a ton of effort from other sources.

Of course, now seeing the UK versions - I almost want those instead. Those are beautiful.

My "dealer" knows my weaknesses and benefits from them greatly lol! Seriously though, I've been lucky to have been given the opportunity to purchase some great editions from fellow collectors at some really fair market values. Their loss is definitely my gain collection wise and I appreciate them greatly for that; although I'll probably end up living in a van, DOWN BY THE RIVER!!!

I really, really like the Viking and H&S editions. I never planned to buy so many editions of the same books but I don't regret it a bit.

I'm sure you know, but if you're collecting it, there were actually two trade paperback books. Cycle of the Werewolf, which is just the graphic novel and later they release the book Silver Bullet, which had the graphic novel AND the script from the movie.

As far as I know, there was only a trade paperback of both for the regular release. I believe there was a limited edition of the standalone graphic novel. Not sure if it was just a just a gift edition or if there was a signed edition.

This is definitely in my top 5 of favorite SK writings of all time. I took several photos here to try and show just how early in his career this really was. I sometimes forget that there was a time when you could carry all his books under one arm easily. I also love the dedication to Joe here as he's well established in his own right now.

An absolutely gorgeous copy from CD. Purchased this totally as a collectable only due to the fact of the interview conducted by CD's own BJF. I'm a huge fan of his and try to collect anything he pens his name to or writes. So Brian, if you're reading this, be careful if you happen to be passing through the heartland on a cold, wintery night by car. You just might wake up with a few busted ribs and legs in a strange room with a ream of paper and an old typewriter beside your bed ;)

Another addition to my SK 1st/1st collection. This has always been a very special book to me as it's how I discovered SK (in the written form at least). This book was given to me in high school, by my then girlfriend, in paperback. And I quote, "Read this, she said. You like weird shit". My first read of a "grown up" book strictly for pleasure. I of course had seen most, if not all of King's movies up to this point, but when the name appeared on screen, "Based on the novel by......", I never paid it any mind. I'm a pretty slow reader by nature but I tore through this book in less then 72 hours I'd bet; couldn't put it down. I returned it to her and said, Wow! You've got to get me more of this Bachman dude's stuff! Her reply, "You do realize you just read Stephen King, right?" I said, "You mean the dude that all those movies come from?" She had been reading him for years; I didn't have a clue. So I immediately hit the town library after school one day and checked out the max limit. The following summer; that same girl purchased for me my very first SK hardback by the name of "Misery"; in which she inscribed a very moving note that only the ignorance of high school love could believe that would endure. Although the cover has long been destroyed; (In the many moves I've made over the years I image) I still have that book to this day..........

I've been wanting the Turtleback edition just to help complete my hardcover SK collection. No other reason.

And while I don't have any remarques, I've always collected things that I enjoy and never with the eye for resale. Seen too many hobbies get ruined by people only buying because it'll be worth more later. Heck, my industry has that same problem generally speaking.

If you like something, then that's reason enough to own it.

Brian861
01-12-2016, 09:44 PM
I thought about getting out of the series initially based on the quality of the other books but the allure of having the same number throughout kept me in. Glad I stayed based on the quality of this edition and hopefully it will only get better moving forward with 'Salem's Lot on the horizon. I don't really care for the slipcase art though as it doesn't match the dj art like the rest. Sticks out like a sore thumb a bit amongst its companions.

Theli
01-13-2016, 02:01 PM
It is a lot lighter colour (being white and all...) than the other slipcases, but not all of them had the same art for the slipcase as the book itself. I know for sure that neither edition of Thinner had a matching slipcase to the cover. To be honest I actually really like the Skeleton Crew slipcase, might be my favourite of the bunch so far, part of what is tempting me to make the purchase... We shall see, can't own everything and to each their own!

Brian861
01-13-2016, 07:08 PM
We shall see, can't own everything and to each their own!

True. I was thinking more along the lines of matching colors rather than an exact match to the DJs where the other books were concerned. My favorite slipcase cover art from PS is Carrie in the series. I like how they placed the program for the prom on the outside for that fateful evening......

Thanks, Siep! My best friend, who is a bit of a gun nut, pointed out to me that the Wolves Remarque looks to him to actually be a cap and ball revolver used in our American Civil War. Roland's revolvers of course used (uses) cartridges from our infamous Old West days. Even so, I think it's my favorite Remarque that I own so far. I've also got a bid in for the latest Haven auction. Seems there's always something I'm willing to buy :D

Brian,
Any idea what the extra barcode stickers on the backs of ours are? My limited does not have this.

Not sure unless they are there to denote Vincent Chong as the artist?? That's probably also indicated on the CP I'd image too. I didn't look. The numbers are exactly the same on both books and match the barcode on the back cover to the left. Maybe a question for Pete or Nicky. I don't want to remove them in case that's some kind of qualifier down the road but it appears there is printing under them. Does yours list Chong's name above Smith's where my stickers are?

I think it's pretty cool also, Jason. Although my mother-in-law would strongly disagree with us both :D

** sorry just realized this did not carry the photos forward. It is in reference to the PS 20th Century Ghost differences between the unsigned and signed editions. **

Finally got around to comparing these. My signed limited edition came with a slightly damaged dust jacket. To replace the dust jacket Pete sent me a copy of the slip cased unsigned edition. With both dust jackets wrapped around the book. In essence replacing my dust jacket and giving me another version of the book. Now here is what I have found in regards to the barcode sticker. The signed version has no barcode at all on the dust jacket at all. The barcode is on he bottom of the slip case keeping the dust jacket nice and clean. The unsigned edition has the barcode on the lower left of the back of the dust jacket and then a sticker on the lower right of the back of the dust jacket cover the words 'Cover Art by Vincent Chong'. You have also commented about the poor quality of the unsigned edition slip case. I think you displeasure comes from the way the surface is glued to the case. It is a two piece wrap with one piece covering the front, top, bottom and side with another piece glued to the back to complete the cover. This method leaves unsightly lines and just kind of has an amateurish look to it to me. The signed edition slipcase is a single piece that wraps around and glues at the top and bottom. Leaving a much cleaner and professional look.

Thanks, Martin for checking it out. Your words regarding the unsigned slipcase are a lot kinder than mine by far :). Really it would have been better to just leave the unsigned, unslipcased rather than throwing a halfass attempt at it. Anyway, I've beat on that dead horse long enough. Some dislike the book quality itself of the unsigned but I think it's fine. Lesson learned however that with PS, you're going to have to step up for better quality. At least their SK anniversary series looks like it's now headed in the right direction.

I doubt the unsigneds will have any significant value over time but I'll keep the DJs in their original state (won't remove the sticker) since that's the way they were released. I'll hang onto the inferior slipcases as well but might upgrade to an aftermarket at some point. Not a priority by any means though.

Still debating if I should get the PS 20th Century Ghosts (Joe Hill) limiteds.
Some apparently are not impressed with the quality of these books, others are.
What do you think, Brian??

Based on the photos that Martin posted, I'd go with a limited. Plus he's been around the block long enough that you and I both can trust his opinion I feel. My issue never was with the book quality, only the slipcase. When they release The Fireman, I know now to go with a limited vs. trade. I've ordered the trade through CD anyway and they produce superior slipcases so that purchase was a no brainer for me.

Siep,
I have both the signed and unsigned version of this book and I would agree with Brian. The actual books are the same with the exception of the signature sheet. The differences are in the extras. The signed version includes a slipcase that is better constructed and has art that goes with the stories. The signed version also has the extra pack of art and the DVD with the two shorts made for stories. In my view the signed version is the way to go.

I am pretty sure I have not taken any photo's yet. Unfortunately I am still spending most of my time in bed. I am only able to be up for a few minutes at a time and am not able to take pictures yet. Hopefully I will be able to add them to my collection thread soon though.

Doh!! I think it actually was Andrew's that I was referring to. I guess I just had Martin on the brain. "We all shine a little" :). Feel better soon, brother. My apologizes.

I know who you're referring to, Andrew. His glass it seems is always half empty on every subject rather than half full. As long as you're happy with your purchase is all that matters. Looks like an outstanding edition to me from what you've shown. Plus all the goodies to boot!

I don't like EP's books either. Maybe the insides are really nice, but the outsides are most definitely NOT my cup of tea.

To each his own, of course. I certainly didn't mean to imply a personal preference was invalid. Calling E.P. books 'crap' just seemed a bit silly. I'm reading one today and personally find them of high quality.

But enough said by me on this, I shouldn't have mentioned it in the first place. Brian, apologies for derailing your thread!

It's all good, Andrew :). Consider it an open ended thread where all can come to palaver on varies subjects of the day :). Besides, having a discussion in my thread feels like having friends over for the afternoon. Easton books look really, really sharp to me as well. Especially when you see a ton of 'em on display in someone's collection. I only own the one though being it's a King book. But I like the look and feel of it.

No worries, Jason if you're not a Easton man. We like what we like and tis what makes the world go round, my friend :).
