    I've been quite lucky in love and have had only two truly brutal breakups in my life; the second gave me that Green Mile collection. I still haven't read it.

    Thanks, William and Andrew! You guys might already know this but the memo scans in 'Salem's Lot were provided by a member of TDT.org, Bob Jackson. Not sure if he's a member here. Don't recall ever seeing him post if so.

    Two is two too many, my friend . But, unfortunately, we've probably all experienced it. I read The Green Mile book by book as they were released in serials. Then again when it was released in HC. Hopefully you'll pick up a reading someplace if you don't want to touch your original gift. I feel you're missing out on King's best stories if ya don't. And one of, if not the best movie adaptation to date IMO. Shawshank and Stand By Me are pretty damn good too.

    My dinged The Shining Folio edition. The one that Martin, really, really wants . (Probably without the ding though).

    Nice addition. Too bad about the ding though.

    Most definitely, Siep. I'd highly recommend it. Matter of fact, I'm hoping they'll do more of King's books.

    Thanks, Dan! I got a fellow TDT member's dinged copy so I knew beforehand. He offered me a deal too sweet to pass up so I can live with the ding. Sad thing is his replacement copy also came dinged . Real problem for this particular edition. I'm thinking most were damaged pre-shipping as I've heard the packaging was excellent. A little QC on Folio's part probably could have prevented so many from going out. They are replacing all damaged copies without requesting the damaged book/slipcase back though. I'm not sure if they have just extra slipcases alone. I probably should email them just to inquire.

    Nice copy of Skeleton Crew too!

    I really struggled with whether or not to get the PS edition of SKELETON CREW. Ultimately, I decided to pass...but I'm still not sure if that was the right decision.

    I don't think you'd be disappointed, Ron. It's the best in the series so far IMO. Really sets my hopes high for their 'Salem's Lot.

    Some really great guys over at TDT.org hooked me up with a US and UK inscribed copy of The Fireman. I'll list the UK edition first.

    Nice! Love the phoenix/firebird drawing for The Fireman. Very cool!

    I get vaguely irritated when the authors don't sign on the page with the limitation. Joe Abercrombie's Goldsboro limiteds are like that, too.

    Maybe the limitation page is tipped in after the author has signed?
