No you should not know him. It is simply a robotic Chimp that was a gift from my uncle Bill. He responds to sounds and his eyes will actually follow you. Since the real uncle Bill lives across the country this one is pulled out at family gatherings and is called uncle Bill. The name stuck.

I have not had time to take any more pictures but since I got my copies of Centuries best today I had to take the time to snap a few photo's.

On the Thread about these books someone asked about slipcases that may fit and Dan mentioned the White and Black Slipcases fit the two volumes. I thought I would show how they fit:
32303231
I agree with Dan that the White Slipcase is a perfect fit and the Black is a little tight. It is not overly tight. I have multiple books whose intended slipcase is tighter.

02-03-2012, 02:32 AM
That's Ok, some of us are a little (or alot:rolleyes:) upside down. Or sideways, slantways, zigways, zagways....so the black slipcase is worth ordering for Vol 2? Is this the one that fits The Passage? If so, I can try it out then before ordering.

Martin
02-03-2012, 02:38 AM
I am unsure on the black slipcase. It fits fine without the Brodart cover but once that is added I don't think the fit would be good. I set this and The Passage side by side and this book is just slightly thicker.

It's approximately the same slipcase as the optional passage case, which is technically a case originally intended for Dark Tower Concordance. Although the ones we have left are actually the original cases for October Dreams / Stephen King Universe.

Are there illustrations inside the Century's Best, or is it strictly stories?

Martin
02-03-2012, 09:14 PM
Strictly stories. Each story starts with a comment from the editor about selecting that story for the anthology. I love that kind of stuff. I am also trying to associate the cover art with the stories inside the volume, not sure if Mr. Clark created the images with specific stories in mind but the detail has me believing they are for specific stories.

Decided to move a way from limited edition's for a few I got books that I got signed at author signings. I have actually only gone to see an author read from their books four times. Considering I live near Powell's books and they have author appearances multiple times a week that seams low to me. I am not sure why I feel this way but I feel like I am intruding when I see an author live. Ready is very personal to me and it just feels strange to be in front of the author. For that reason it must be one of my favorite authors for me to go. I must say on the few occasions I went I had a blast.

The first time I went was to see Terry Anderson and his wife read from his memoir Den of Lions. Terry Anderson was held hostage in Beirut for seven years and the books tells of his ordeal and of his wife's during the same time. I read most, if not all, of the books from persons held hostage during those years and I must say this is probably the best of them.

The second author reading I attended was at Powell's and I actually was surprised to see his name listed as a person doing a reading. I called Powell's to make sure it was correct before deciding to attend. The author, one of my all time favorites, was Peter Straub. He was scheduled to read from his new collection Magic Terror. I had no idea if he would sign other books or just the new release. I loaded my three favorite books into my car and went to Powell's about three hours before the event was scheduled. Upon arrival I did not know what to do with my books. I asked a clerk inside setting up chairs if the author would sign multiple books. He explained that each author was different and I should bring in everything I had, they would give me a receipt so they would know they were mine. I purchased his newest book and sat directly in front of the podium and began reading with my other books under my chair. About an hour before the event I was still the only person waiting. I looked up from my book and Mr. Straub was asking if he could sit next to me. I was able to chat with him about his current book tour and asked some questions about some earlier novels. After a few minutes he went to check in with the store. By the time he began his reading the chairs were full and many were standing beyond the chairs. When the signing portion began they began with me since I was sitting right there. I had the other books still in the bag and placed the new book on the table, I explained that I had no idea what he would sign so I brought a few older titles just in case he would sign them. Mr. Straub grinned and said 'You bought my new book so I will sign anything you brought.'

I was not able to get anything signed from the third author I attended an appearance for. It is also the only appearance I payed for, and it was well worth it. Stephen King appeared at Benaroya Hall in Seattle to promote Lisey's Story. Seattle Art's & Lecture (SAL) was putting the event on and sold two levels of tickets. Basic General admission and Premium. The premium ticket included a guaranteed seat in one of the first four rows and a reception after the reading. They were very clear the Mr. King was invited to attend the reception but would only attend if he was feeling up to it, upon arriving we were told it was unlikely he would attemd the reception since he was not feeling well. Persons with premium were welcome to bring three books each with no promise that they would be signed. Upon arriving the hall was packed but with our premium tickets we were able to sit in the from row center. Mr. King came out, told a couple of funny stories and then read from Lisey's story. Upon entering everyone was given a card to write a question they would ask Mr. King if they could. After the reading a lady from SAL came on stage and read several of the questions to Mr. King. His answering of the questions is the portion of the event that I remember the most. The reason is each time he would begin answering the question and then tell a story that the question brought to his mind. By the end of the story everyone was laughing and I had always forgotten the question. Without fail each time he would re-state the question and give a direct answer. That will always stand out in my mind because there is no way I could have do what he did. The reception had very good food and drink but no Mr. King. After the reading though no one seemed to mind, we all just chatted about our favorite King stories and the event we had just been a part of.

The fourth and so far final author I attended a reading for was Joe Hill. He came to Powell's to promote his second novel Horns. Seeing both him and his father I was amazed at how similar they come across. They have the same sense of humor and both seam uncomfortable with celebrity. Thanks to Mr. Hills posts on his blog I new in advance that he would sign everything you brought as long as you waited until the people with five items or less went first. I still felt uncomfortable bringing very much.
After his reading he took questions and for the first few people he called on he gave them a set of light up horns. I was able to get a pair of the horns and even got them signed.

20th Century Ghost was signed at his Powell's appearance.

I received a signed bookplate from a promotion when pre-ordering a copy of the paperbook Horns. Not sure what I will do with it yet but I may frame it with my horns. The UK 20th Century Ghosts is unsigned.

The General's Wife was published in 1982 by Donald M. Grant. The book begins with 'The Story's Story' in which Mr. Straub explains that this novella was originally intended to be in the novel Floating Dragon. He also states that he looks upon Stephen King's It, Floating Dragon and The Talisman a trilogy. I purchased the book off eBay long ago but if I remember correctly it was not a for sale book, rather it was given out to the 1st 1200 attendees at a convention of some sort. It is a beautiful book and a fantastic story. My wife does not read horror and I suggested she read it. She read it in one sitting and loved it.

These are meant for comic books, but I bet they'd work pretty well for chapbooks as well. I have 4 of them filled with comics atm, just haven't gotten around to printing color labels / covers to go on them yet.

Although my wife would love for me to sell some books she has also accepted that I plan on keeping them. As my collection has grown and the existing bookcases have approached capacity she has even suggested ways to add book capacity to the house. She has some good ideas and when I get around to doing what she suggested I will have to post pictures.

Thank you Squire, some are very good and some, not so much. I chose to post them without adding my thoughts.

Stumbled on that one at a used book store many years ago. It has been a long time since I looked at that one but I think it is a good one.

The only book I have from Stephen King's Philtrum Press, and it is not a King story:

The Ideal Genuine Man by Don Robertson
50595060

The production values of this book are very high. Wish Philtrum would publish more.

I believe this is the first book to contain both Stephen King and Joe Hills signatures. I have the Signed limited and the Slipcased Signed Limited but since the look identical I only photographed the Slipcased version.

Great collection, Martin. I've been interested in The Devil's Wine for some tome now, but it keeps taking a back seat. Thanks for those posts!

The Devil's Wine great, several really great authors in a style you do not normally associate them with.

That is interesting, I wonder if I just got one that was incorrectly sized?

Haha oh well, it has a broadart cover on it too, so i don't understand why yours doesn't fit!?

Martin

Mine is so tight that without a broadart cover I have to get a fingernail on the top and bottom of the book and gently slide it out. At some point I will probably put a broadart cover on and store the book next to the slipcase. Glad yours fits though, hopefully mine was just an anomaly.
