    Richard Laymon’s THE WOODS ARE DARK...and I pop up from behind my RC Cola logo and show off my face and my dog. Beware the cuteness (the dog, not me ;-))!

    Yep, I bought that one as well, also at the time of publication and for the $40 cover price. Even at the time it seemed absurdly low (well, both of them did) and I guess maybe Monteleone did it out of principle, to take a stand against gouging (or maybe it was a thank-you to his customers...?), but whatever his reasoning it made for a great day.

    Nice book. This may be the only signed limited I truly kick myself for not buying at launch. It was affordable and within my budget.

    I passed up a whole lotta 1st ed. HCs of that book before I sprung for that Fine/Fine copy. It was so large and so cheaply produced by Doubleday that spine sag and other condition/longevity issues are commonplace on almost all 1st eds. of that massive book. Add to that the fact that most copies also have worn dustjackets since it's a (early) King book and thus extremely likely that it's been read and re-read, possibly by multiple people. So it's tough to find a 1st ed. / 1st printing copy that essentially looks like it just came off the bookstore shelves...but sometimes patience wins out.
    I'll be patiently awaiting its arrival

    Sounds intriguing, Theli. I’ll temper the hype, then, but keep it on my to-get list.
