    S/L Gunslinger and then The Drawing of the Three. If I could somehow get #464, that would be super bonus!

    The Stand coffin edition.

    Siep, is that the one that used the great idea of using some of "Bachman's" old cancelled checks to get the signatures?

    Nobody want's a Guttenberg Bible?!

    My grail now would be signed limited version of The Stand (Coffin or Bible edition, I've heard it called both). My previous one was "The Eyes of the Dragon" which I obtained a few years ago. Oh, and I would still like a copy of (my great missed opportunity) the Philtrum Press, "Six Stories".

    My near impossible would be a first printing of Alice in Wonderland.

    Hmmmmmm a UK 1st of Stephen King's 'Night Shift', a copy of 'Fluke' by James Herbert in a fine and unfaded dustjacket. They are the main two that i would love to get my hands on!

    I picked mine up a couple years ago...a signed 1st HC of Charles Beaumont's THE HUNGER AND OTHER STORIES.

    IMG_4719a.jpg

    These days it would be a signed 1st of Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD...which is impossible, as the only copies he's signed are the 250 copies that he's signed and left to his (now very young) son. I'm hoping when he son comes of age and sells these copies to make himself a bundle, that I'll be in the position to pick one up.

    I'd also love to have the 17-volume S/L HC series that Dennis McMillan published of Fredric Brown's mystery fiction.

    Oh, and a signed 1st HC of King's NIGHT SHIFT, a very seminal book for me.

    Bradbury Dark Carnival! I will save for it and get it one day. Just the idea of it is so cool. His first book, Arkham House, just neat.

    The first is a 1st edition, 1st printing set of The Lord of the Rings trillogy. This is if I had all the money in the world, as that's about what it would cost me. The second is a 1st edition, 1st printing of The Sword of Shannara. This a bit more reasonable and would probably only cost me between 500 and 700 dollars.
    Oh, you mean like the copy of TSOS I had as a kid and just donated to my city's public library when I was 12? In retrospect tho, I wish I hadn't done that...

    I've never really thought about it before, but I'd have to say a 1st/1st of The Worm Ouroborous by ER Eddison would be high on the list--signed if posssible. i don't even know if one exists...
