Guys,

I'm currently looking to continue the completion of my King 1st's collection .... Two, in particular, I'm looking for ....

1) Salem's Lot .. 3rd State (Father Callahan);
2) Four Past Midnight ... 2nd State ... (doesn't have Stephen King in gold letters on the cover).

If anyone has either (or both) of these, drop me a line :cool:

Sorry, I just checked mine and neither are.

Thanks champ, appreciate you taking the time out to look through your collection for me :cool: You'd think that the 2nd State Father Cody Salem's Lot would be more difficult to track down, but nope, not this time :confused:

No, my Salem's Lot is an 11th state and Four Past Midnight is a first state.

Is the SK on the front of the jacket gold or black (just curious) ? :D

Grant, I've never heard of the second state of the Four Past Midnight jacket. Where did you hear about it?

Me either John (and wasn't I peeved that I'd missed the reference before????).

The link (for the www.skcollector.com site) is http://www.skcollector.com/1st/fourpastmidnight.html

Yeah, that was the UK edition - not really sure what the cover of the 2nd state actually looks like (the skcollector site doesn't include a cover shot) :(

I noticed that. I checked all the sites I know of, the ones on skcollector, and with friends who I know have some SK HCs. Have you emailed skcollector and Betts to see if they know anything about it? I assume you have.

Grant Wootton
01-27-2012, 04:14 AM
Yep, sure have (just waiting on a couple of responses) - I've looked high and low for these two, and, although (on paper at least) they should be readily available, seems that this isn't the case at all ....

Alright !!!! One down, one to go (wasn't quite an inexpensive as the one you scored John, but has the advantage of being unread) ... Now all I require is Salem's 3rd :D

I figure I'll just pick up a fine copy of a first edition, swap jackets and donate the book that I just bought. I should be able to get one at minimal cost.

And congratulations!

Grant, I got my copy of the Four Past Midnight today and, irregardless of the photo in the auction, it has the gold Stephen King. I'll keep looking and make sure I ask before I buy the next time.

Damn !!!! Sorry to hear that John :( I'll let you know how I go with the copy I receive (probably still at least a week away due to shipping time).

How is "state" being used here? I can't figure it out. Printing run?

Dan Hocker
03-19-2012, 02:36 PM
State usually refers to changes within a print run. Sometimes it's as simple as with the UK 11/22/63 Where some of the dust jackets have red text and others have a silver text. Other times it's typo within the book itself.

So did your copy arrive Grant? Gold letters or not?

Gold letters Pete, made the same mistake that John made - should have asked rather than assumed that a picture posted on eBay was wholly accurate (would say that the flash angle made the writing on the front cover look white). Have looked on eBay and ABE periodically since, but haven't come across one as yet :D

Speaking of SK 1sts, do you have all three states of The Tommy Knockers, Mr. Woot? I've got two of them, with "stephen King" in red and white,. I haven't beem able to find the silver (with blue light coming from the title instead of green).

Yep, and I have the 4th state too, that's the one where, if you hold it at an exact 72 degree angle towards the west when the sun is at its very apogee, a purple laser beam shoots out your ass and vaporises the family cat :p

Does it work for neighborhood cats? I may need to own that book.

Thats too bad Grant. Good luck on your hunting then.

It's not all bad Pete, gives me something to chase (along with one of two others) :D

peteOcha
03-26-2012, 08:48 PM
Indeed, it does. I've got plenty to chase so I'm not worried there. Need to chase more of the green so I can chase the books! :)

Grant Wootton
03-26-2012, 10:26 PM
Unfortunate that the pursuit of the latter necessitates the chasing (and acquisition) of the former :)

Sad but true. Why can't the fact that I would give them a loving home and treat them well be enough for me to have them?! :)
