    After much thought on this subject my choice would be a signed first edition of The Martian Chronicles. As I have said many times that is the book that got me hooked as a reader.To own a first edition signed by the man himself would be the greatest.

    The EP treatment of The Lair of the White Worm certainly made the reading experience much more enjoyable!

My heart skipped a few beats, to say the least. Perhaps only a "first state" dust jacket would be worthy of this thread, but since there are only four or so of those known to exist (from what I've read), I'll take the ~$800 second state for less than twenty bucks as an amazing find!
    Pictures?!

    A couple of mine are on the way, S/N Cujo and Christine.
    I'd also like a S/N Firestarter and Skeleton Crew.

    I think the ultimate for me would be a first print, first edition of The Hobbit, before it was edited to fit more comfortably with the LoTR series. Though some first edition or signed copies of Dracula, Frankenstein or The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde would be pretty damn cool too. Unfortunately I'm not rich so...

    Unfortunately, I've only got the numbered edition:







    Very nice book, of course, but that lettered edition is the one I really want.

    My copy is to Randall Flagg and in the note line it says Tithe

    Sorry you had to sell off some of your collection. I would love to see the program books!

I'll have to take a pic someday and post them here...they really are the favorite thing in my collection. I personally value them very much as I treasure my World Horror Convention memories, and they are full of such wonderful contributors, the genre's best from many years!
