    Probably will shock most of my collecting peers here but I'm just not into collecting King's sig. Not really into collecting anyone's sig really outside of BJF. I know, double standard, sue me :P. Seems most non-King limiteds come with the author's sig anyway, but it's in no way shape or form a deal breaker for me if it doesn't. I guess maybe because I missed out on a time when you could go and get it personally inscribed while standing in front of the man. Albeit if only for a few seconds. But still, there is something a little personal in that. A flat sig or an inscription to someone else honestly doesn't do anything for me. Not banishing those you who collection them; we all have our own interest. I reckon I was just having a soapbox, thread hijacking moment. You all may carry on now .

    P.S. And no, Mike! I wasn't being a dick . Sorry, brother. Couldn't resist .

    Not shocking at all. With the current premium being asked for King's signature on a book many of us have walked away from getting them. I have about 13 books with King's signature and have paid from $20 (Quietly now) to $300 (Secretary of Dreams). I love these books but with the current prices being asked for King signed editions I would not own them. I love what Cemetery Dance is doing with the Doubleday years and the fact they do not contain King's signature does not bother me in the least. On the other hand if the price was much higher I would not purchase them with or without his signature.

    Great points, Martin as always. IMO, the lettereds are ridiculously priced but there is an obvious market for them as they seem to sell out within minutes of public announcement; if they even make it to public announcement. So can't blame the publishers for publishing them as this is just good old fashioned business sense; supply vs. demand. And if given the opportunity and I can afford it at the time, I'm seriously debating on getting The Stand lettered due to it being my all time favorite.

    Contest announcement from veryfinebooks to get us back on topic. I didn't do the social media thing and only entered using my email but it still stated I was entered. I never win these type of things so it honestly doesn't matter.

    I have no issue with the publisher producing them or charging what they charge, they just are not for me.

    LOL! Remember, buddy. We're both apart of the insiders club Besides, you'll have to beat back the previous lettered owners to get a copy. I'm sure they'll get first dibs. Always the secondary market where you can expect to pay through the nose.

    Think my pay-through-the-nose days are over.
    At least, I hope so.

    Although....what am I saying here. I've paid through the nose for the PS Thinner (lettered) plus the upcoming Skeleton Crew.
    And will do the same when (IF!!) the lettered 'Salem's Lot is announced.
    Almost hope it won't be...

    I've seen you ask this question several times and you appear to have been placed on ignore. Might be for your own good as ya say .

    Not that it's that much of a collectible, but does anyone know (or able to guess) is the relatively ordinary Bill Hodges trilogy box set from Scribner's likely to be around for very long? On one hand, it's not from a specialty press (CD, PS etc., which is why I say "relatively ordinary") and so there could be a number of copies; on the other hand, while End Of Watch will be around for eternity, not everyone is going to want to buy all 3 books at one go.

    I ask because I'd like to jump into that series, but I'm juggling a few potential purchases in the $50 - $100 range, and if this type of thing doesn't last long (despite its mass market nature), I'd have to take that into consideration.

    I purchased the trilogy (from CD) during one of their half price sales. Since it comes with a signed lithograph and the books have different jackets I think there will be some collectible value.

    There will always be some collectible IMO to any thing related to King. And according to a fellow TDT member; there might even be a variant of the DJs for this set. One in black, one in white. If you Google it, you'll see both. There is still some question however whether or not all the books in the set will be true 1st/1st and if the books themselves will vary from the true 1st/1st. Will be interesting to see how it plays out. I too have the set on order from CD.

    FWIW, I was just wondering if this set will still be there if I wait several months to pick it up (small goals).

    I don't see why it wouldn't be personally.

    I don't see how there's any reasonable way Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers, as part of this set, could be called 1st/1st.

    I would see it more as 1st printing of a 2nd edition.
