    I could not agree more Frik. Books as i'objects d'art are sensual, the choice paper,the rippled covers,or smooth leather, the ARTWORK-if you do not open it, you MAY never read it.It may be forgotten. As the French say Arrosier C'est La vie- Drink up Have a good time -also Eros C'est la vie la vie .Eros that is life. Pleasure get it while you can. think if you open and look at a limited first ,first,signed edition you are one of a few choice people. It makes you. very honored,to have that rare relationship,with the author,illustrators,book designers, and graphic artists that very few have. Open it ,unless you are ONLY interested in investment.

    Actually I'm looking to purchase almost all the 1st editions of Stephen King books.

    My wife and I seperarted almost 2 months ago and yesterday I noticed the my gift edition of Lisey's stoty was out of the wrapper so I pick it up took it out of its slip case to find the it was marked all over in permanent marker and pages were ripped out. Then I noticed that The Stand Complete and Uncut was gone and so was Dreamcatcher. Now I was really starting to worry so i started going through my Stephen king books and so far 22 of them have either pages torn out or marked on. Now theses were all first edition hard covers The Stand , Christine, Cujo, Different seasons, It, the bachman books, Thinner, She missed Carrie thank god. Creepshow, Insomnia, Nightshift. and so on most of these books i had before we ever met. I started getting Stephen king book 30 years ago And some of theses I finally got the real first edition instead of the bookclub edition. the shining was the only one i had to get for the real first edition. Now starting all over again. So once my house sells it will be time to start buying again. She also marked over 3 of my Cd books I recently bought . Glad she missed the rest of them ... There done bitching .....

    Wow. I'd suggest taking her to court for that. I'd suggest destroying things she values too but that could result in issues with the law lol

    Ouch!!!

    And I thought losing an original "The Empire Strikes Back" movie poster to a vindictive...hmmm...was bad.

    I can appreciate the 30 years of collecting King's work. I've done the same thing...

    Damn!

    Can't wait to get my hands on A Dark & Bloody Ground by Ronald Kelly!

    Of course, I'll have to wait 'til 2012, as he's still writing it...

    But he says that it will be published by...Cemetery Dance!

    Corfimation? Denial? Not comment?

    well I just noticed last night that My first edition of Creepshow was marked all over on inside.. including creepshow thats 8 more I found marked on total 30 so far. I havent finished looking through all my Steven King books yet. Scared to look at anymore. Each one I open pages are marked on.. have to look carefully because sometimes only one page is written on and can be easily missed...still have another 40 or so King books to go through.

    Dark Carnival

    Try this again. Dark Carnival, Bradbury's First book. Published by Arkham House. "The Homecoming." One of my favorite short stories. This is a lottery book. One Day!!! Just the idea of this book gives me chills. History!

    Did you get Gauntlet Press reissue edition? It had a really nice optional slipcase with Bradbury art on it.

    Sheez- you really should have unloaded the dishwasher that one night...

    Seriously, I am sorry for your loss. Not the woman but the collection. That is horrible.

    That looks like a smart production, who's the publisher?
