    Part of the advertising campaign for PS when it came out was that the book scared even King himself. It made for a splendidly anxious wait for the book (ahhh, the seventies--when interlibrary loan was the only way to get more than one copy of a new bestseller; then the dreaded "waiting" list! I always seemed to be second...)

      I still need to track down a 1st/1st of PS someday. It was the first King book I read and I think I would still consider it his best and my favorite.

          The US Pet Semetary is a difficult one to find in collectible condition, because the dust jacket is so fragile.

            Hmmmm. I didn't know that. But a few weeks ago Betts accidentally sent me a book I didn't order: a first edition of Salem's Lot....I think I should of kept it lol. I think it was worth a lot more money than what I ordered. But that wouldn't be honest even though I've always heard if you didn't order something and whoever sends it to you, you can keep it no matter what. Anyone know if that's true? It may be true legally but wrong morally.

              I think you hit the nail on the head right there.

                Yeah, I think so too. But if it was from some huge store, then should I keep it? It wouldn't be from one guy just trying to make it in the world. But of course, that would be wrong as well. It's like taking a pencil home from work. People don't think it's stealing but it actually does. But hell I've taken tools home from work that weren't mine and didn't even realize it. I brought them back because I felt funny about it.

                  I had a similar thing happen when Stu was in charge of Betts. I had ordered the UK Thinner proof, but he sent me the unbound pages instead (about a $200 difference!). I had no problem in returning the wrong item (though I'd have LOVED to have kept it) and got the proper item. No hesitation on my part. What is right is right.

                    But you know what? I sent it back and was supposed to be paid the return shipping for doing this HUGE favor (I didn' have to say a word to him that I received this book, and he was shocked when I told him about it), but he never sent me the almost $20 it cost to ship back, with insurance. I never brought it up since I assumed he'd keep his word and pay the shipping cost.

                      Well maybe you should bring it up. Complaining to us won't help remind him that he owes you that $20.

                              Government's putting it's maw into everything nowadays. But "Assholery" is awful subjective...I don't know how you can legistate it...

                                The bad news is if they did pass a law against it they would exclude themselves from the law.
