    Got these books today at Half Price Books. The Regulators is a 1st Edition/1st printing. They also had 2 copies of the hardcover of The Gunslinger from the Viking 2003 printing. One copy was on the bookshelves and didn't say anything about what printing it was, the other was locked up and being sold for $95 and pretty sure the note for it said 1st edition. Not sure if I should pick that one up or not, though I want to get all the DT books in hardcover and only have 5-7 in that format so far

    Anyone have an idea if it'd be worth paying that much for a 1st edition of 2003 edition of The Gunlinger?

    Great purchase! As to the Gunslinger, I don't really know, but I can tell you that I would pay that much myself for a copy, seems like a good deal to me if it in fact is a 1st edition.

    Of course I care.

    Haven't read it yet, but knowing how I am with King, even if it's not so good I'll still like it.

    That is what I was thinking as well. Might have to go back tomorrow and take a look at it to see if it says anything inside the book about it being a 1st edition. If it'd been the 1st Edition of the original version I wouldn't have hesitated at all, lol, but they aren't dumb enough to sell one of those for $95

    $95 seems a little steep to me for the ones that i have seen sell on ebay, but then again it goes down to if it is in mint condition and that you can see before you buy so there are no risks involved. Patience and a little hunting could get you one ofr lower than $50 i feel. I have to keep telling myself that collecting is a game of patience

    True.
    And although I'm a very patient individual, whenever I see an item I'm interested in and I have the money available, I pounce.
    I'd rather pay some more than risk the chance of missing out.

    My latest editions, not horror related, but still, they're books.

    Nice, been tempted to pick up The Alchemist before, never done it though. Never seen the graphic novel of it though.

    Decided to wait on picking up that copy of The Gunslinger for now, will probably look elsewhere for it and get it cheaper instead

    I haven't read it before either. And this was the first time I saw the graphic novel for it as well. Since it was the last copy i decided the time had come to finally check it out.

    Definitely pick up the book. I thought the movie was a bit of a let down after reading it.

    The movie compared to the book is crap in my opinion. I felt that the book was sooooo much better. But thats just my opinion. Give it a read and see for yourself.

    Got these the other day:

    SPoW 001.jpg

    This is Moorcock's Pyat Quartet. It details the remininsces of a most unreliable narrator through the major events of Europe in the first half of the 2oth century. It's supposed to be one of the best things he's written, but I'll make up my own mind.

    Epic last name, epic lifetime of epic works. He was part of a group of SF/dark fantasy writers who brought speculative fiction into the forefront in the 60s and 70s, influencing 4 decades of witers.

    Today, China Mieville writes what is called "New Wierd" ficition, but in the 60s and 70s it was called New Wave. For me, there's nothing new or wierd about what he writes.

    From Moorcock's works you can recognize the beginnings of The Dark Tower series; don't know if King claims Moorcock as an influence or not.
