    I got this over the weekend. It has a rather interesting provenance. This is a manuscript that was sent from Ralph M. Vincinanza's office (King's agent at the time. He passed away suddenly in 2010.) to a Dutch publisher. The publisher donated it to a Dutch Stephen King fan group which sold it. The eventual owner then sold it to me.

    Full Dark, No Stars manuscript box:



    The first page of the story 1922:



    And the first page of the story Big Driver:




    Thanks, Niels!

    Thanks! I guess I'm mostly interested in the prepublication stuff of King's. Of course, I have lots of other of his books, magazines, etc. also.

    My latest purchase is the forum grab (my first CD grab bag too!). Really....since I discovered CD in October, my book purchases have increased. I only have one outstanding order now. I am sure that there will be more in the very near future though. As far as latest purchase that arrived - it was items from the dinged book sale, as well as a ARC that showed up the other day.

    Signed copy, from The Strand bookstore. I paid less, even including shipping, than the retail price of the book. I couldn't pass it up!

    I just got a copy of the limited (signed) trade edition of The Providence Rider from Subterranean Press. Total cost was $23.31 for a signed slipcased copy!

    Man, tough decisions to make now. Have a $50 certificate to use wherever I want and not sure what I get right now, lol. If I was interested in more titles from Dark Regions I'd be tempted to get their doomsday stocking deal, but there are too many things there I have no interest in for me to risk it. Tempted to go to Barnes and Noble and get their HC edition of Jurassic Park/The Lost World, but not sure what else to get. Would have even more money to spend on stuff, but still waiting to get money I have been waiting on. May end up waiting on Jurrasic Park/The Lost World in favor of something else too.

    Thanks to my library, I spent a few dollars this past week and got about twenty of the "Executioner" paperbacks; a paperback of the first print of "The Green Mile" as an all-in-one volume; a first print of the paperback "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon"; and a paperback (can't tell which printing) of "Come Out Tonight" by Richard Laymon.

    The only drawback to library sales is the stupid pinkish-purple tags they put on the spines of the books to indicate price, but with a little work I can usually get them off without doing damage.

    Well, with the money I got for Christmas I didn't buy anything from Barnes and Noble. Instead, for a little under $50 including shipping, I got a copy of the Thunderstorm Black Voltage edition of The Mountain by William Ollie that was originally $75. Very much looking forward to getting this one
