    As I said....drooling time's here.
    I see some wonderful items, Tom, including some amazing slipcases.
    (btw, I ordered one of those Dolso Night Shift cases, realised the order was not about a limited book-edition, but about a limited slipcase edition and right away cancelled my order. Now I just don't know if I did the right thing...).
    I do have a question I hope you can answer. Although I own numerous editions of certain books, they're all different editions. Why collect many copies of the same editon, like your four Dark Tower VII copies? I know more people do this, but I just can't figure out why.

    Very nice!!! (looking him up in another window.)

    And the website answers my question about the Gunslinger case as well. When I get a book i think is worth one of those, I'll look into it.
