    jhanic's Stephen King proof collection

    As many of you may be aware, I specialize in collecting proofs of King's works, including anthologies, etc. Because I have neither the time nor the energy to start another thread showing my collection, I am posting the link to my collection from TheDarkTower.org:

    http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/...-jhanic-proofs

    I want to emphasize that these are books that I own. I don't own everything, of course, but I'm trying!

    I welcome any comments and/or corrections.

    Collecting Stephen King proofs...kind of a niche field in which to collect.

    Still a little envious though. I'm sure the sense of self satisfaction is immense as a result of such a compilation.

    I don't limit my self just to the proofs, though. I also have almost all the US and UK 1st/1st editions, most of the s/l (only one lettered edition, though), gift editions, etc. I really like the proofs, though.

    My latest (thanks, Hannes!). The proof of Full Dark, No Stars with the white tape spine:



    This gives me 96 US proofs, 43 UK proofs, 54 anthology proofs and 18 proofs of books about King.

    Yeah, that's the last proof for Full Dark I needed. I have the regular blue US proof, the CD proof, the UK proof and now this one.

    Two more anthology proofs.

    The Living Dead (with Home Delivery):



    A Life in the Cinema (introduction):



    The ARC of A Life in the Cinema is different than the previous one I posted. The previous one was labeled as the "Launch Party Edition". There are some minor differences between the two.

    Very awesome collection, I saw that you have the two Regulator proofs do you also have the two Desperation proofs? Those 4 are the center piece of my small King proof collection.
