by Stephen King

For twenty years the officers in Pennsylvania State Police Barracks have kept a secret in SHED B. A vintage Buick which lures the troopers to come and take a look. Now young Ned Wilcox, son of Officer Curt Wilcox, has started hanging around the Barracks. One day he can't resist peeking through the windows... and it's finally time to share the secret. So the veteran troopers sit Ned down on the smoking bench and tell him the story -- every skin-curdling detail...

This was one of my earliest SK limited edition purchases. I still love it. Special kudos for going with a color scheme other than black!

I agree. I just recently obtained a Lettered FAB8 and it is a wonderful production.

This is one I want to get for my collection but don't expect to find one I'd be able to afford, at least not any time soon

I managed to get one but from somewhere else. Nicely done, one of the best looking of all my King limiteds.

There is a copy of this on eBay at the moment but I don't think I can justify spending any more money this month on books http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Stephen-King-From-a-Buick-8-Cemetery-Dance-Gift-Edition-/231163978200

That sure isn't cheap for a gift edition.

Yeah you can find better deals than that on Ebay. That seller is trying to scalp someone.

The seller has now reduced it by 20 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/231163978200?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Shame it's so expensive as this is definitely on my want list

Even with the price being reduced by 20, it is still almost 3 times the original price of $75 (approx 45). I think it is worth asking if there are any copies left available on Dan's awesome 'Out of Print' thread before paying over the odds for a copy of this book on Ebay. :)

Oooh, I'll give that a try... thank you :)

Pretty sure it has been asked for before in that thread with an answer of no, though I could be wrong. This is definitely up there on my list of books to get a hold of, as well as Secretary of Dreams Vol. 1

Ahh OK, I did ask earlier on the Out Of Print thread but was expecting a 'no' anyway, there are a few copies of SOD Vol.1 around it just depends how much you wish to pay for it http://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=10662975753&searchurl=an%3Dstephen%2Bking%26amp%3Bsts%3Dt%26am p%3Btn%3Dsecretary%2Bof%2Bdreams

Yeah, both SOD V1 and Buick 8 are out of my price range at the moment. Have to come into a good chuck of change to be able to afford either of them

To be honest, CD's gift editions are so outstanding, I would be just as happy with those as the limiteds. Yes, there is the slipcase vs traycase and signed vs unsigned, but as far as the "book" part itself, the CD gift editions are beautiful.

Oh yeah, fully agree. Definitely love the signed edition of IT that CD produced, but it is likely the only signed King I'll be able to afford. Not that I was really able to responsibly afford it, but I made it work, lol.

I definitely am more interested in the gift editions of Buick 8 and SOD V1, but only because I definitely wouldn't be able to afford the signed editions.
