    I knew you couldn't pass it up, Grant I'm holding off on this one. I have the Grant edition on order, and I think that'll do me just fine.

      I'll need to do my DMG hunting of TWTTK after the April release - it'll cost a bomb, I'm sure, but the LSOE I have is way above the 800 mark so was unable to secure a signed limited

        Same here, but I did enter the lottery, so who knows. Years ago, when the Philtrum Press The Eyes of the Dragon was released, the same thing happened and I ended up with a copy after all.
        You can of course always get one of Bett Books DT sets....TWTTK guaranteed!

          Hey Siep !!!!! Welcome back !!!! Had looked at the DT series held by Betts, but even I couldn't justify the cost on that set of puppies

            A bird (don't know if I can tell the name) sent out a newsletter about a 200-copies signed limited edition of TWTTK (not facsimile) for UK. Couldn't find info anywere so I asked him and he told me that the publisher have not made a public annoucment yet...

              Oops - looks like I had inside information without even knowing it

                I would verify that information with King's site before investing any money. As far as I know, the only UK limiteds of Wind are the ones with a facsimile signature.

                  I'll check it with my guy in the UK when I finish work today - I've no doubt at all that the offer made is genuine, and will certainly check on the bona fides of the originating source.

                    It seems that Hodder & Stoughton has published a 200-copy limited with a REAL King signature of The Wind Through the Keyhole. I don't know if this edition is numbered or not. Again, this seems to be different from the 700-copy "limited" edition H&S published with a facsimile signature. I don't have a copy of this one, but I've seen one offered for 425, which is beyond my means at the current time.

                      Woo Hoo !!!! Thanks John, this is the one I picked up a copy of last month (knew my guy in the UK would come through for me - see earlier posts on this thread)

                            Still a crazy price imo, i do have the money spare for a copy but i can't justify it!

                                One of the things that concerns me is that the 700-copy edition with the facsimile signature states that it's a facsimile ONLY on the shrinkwrap--nowhere on the book itself, at least as far as I can see. Is the edition with the "real" signature numbered, as is the other edition?
