    CyberGhostface's Collection

    I started "collecting" fairly recently so there's not a whole lot at the moment.

    The "It: 25th Anniversary Special Edition" will probably remain my favorite even when I get more. It is my favorite book of all time and I really love the production on this. The cover art is one of my favorite pieces, it's my desktop wallpaper at the moment. It's my first LE and I was a bit hesitant to get it given the price, but I figured I'd kick myself if I didn't.



    I'm a UMass Lowell student, so when Stephen King came over I was able to go to a semi-private Q&A session (about a hundred or so people). I brought It along in a duffel bag just in case and afterwards a handful of people had brought some books as well so I asked him to sign mine. I was a little nervous given his thoughts on limited editions but he was very friendly and was like, "Wow, Cemetery Dance!"

    Two recent purchases: The Dark Man with a signed plate from Chadbourne courtesy of the Overlook Connection...





    ... and the Gift Edition for Dr. Sleep.

    Finally my Joe Hill books.

    Subterranean Press's NOS4A2 (I'll put it on the bookshelf with the others once I get the slipcase)





    These were from a Joe Hill signing around when NOS4A2 first came out.









    He also signed a couple of other comics.

    Very nice start, CG! Thanks for another collection thread. Hope you'll keep posting as you collection grows. (And remember, a "collection" contains more than just special editions of books!)

    Very nice. Jealous of the Doctor Sleep book, and the special sig on your copy of It! I sorta want the Joe Hill book, though still not a fan of the cover being that it seems to fit for a graphic novel and not an actual novel. The art itself is good though, and for all I know it could fit perfectly with the story, which I still need to read

    Very nice, that Joe Hill N0S4A2 book sure gained some value fast, a hot item.

    Thanks everyone.

    FWIW this is my normal book collection or about a third of it. I have some more scattered around the house and there's another bookcase downstairs that's a bit disorderly at the moment. (If anyone's wondering those aren't first editions of The Shining and Cujo but book club editions I got from a library sale.) Also the book at the left corner is the pop-up edition of Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon.

    Thanks for starting a collection of yours. I too, didn't really have much, but it's still "my"/"your" collection, and that's what it's all about. I don't have any special editions at this time.

    Very nice, CGF! Every collection starts off small. (Besides, I spy a HC copy of the complete ficiton of H.P. Lovecraft, so that right there makes it signiificant!)

    I believe the Hill ones are. I think some of the more recent King ones are, but as for the older ones (like The Shining) they're generally second printings or book club editions. I've picked up most of them at library sales.
