    One quest down!! I finally found a not insanely priced copy of the Easton Press edition of A Night in the Lonesome October Roger Zelazny. Iíve looked for a number of years and finally found one on ABE. Patience really paid off, saving me a couple of Hundred $$$$$. I was tempted on a number of occasions, but just couldnít bring myself to pay the prices people were asking. Not too many more left on the list!!! MDH

    I had to get rid of a lot of my super rare Stephen King collectibles over the recent years to pay some bills, as well as my GIANT collection of small press magazines (probably 1,000 of those). BUT, right now I'd have to say my holy grail might be my almost complete set of World Horror Convention program books from year 1, signed by most of the guests of honors plus other contributors and guests. I'll have to take a pic someday and post them here...they really are the favorite thing in my collection. I personally value them very much as I treasure my World Horror Convention memories, and they are full of such wonderful contributors, the genre's best from many years!

    Sorry you had to sell off some of your collection. I would love to see the program books!

    I think the ultimate for me would be a first print, first edition of The Hobbit, before it was edited to fit more comfortably with the LoTR series. Though some first edition or signed copies of Dracula, Frankenstein or The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde would be pretty damn cool too. Unfortunately I'm not rich so...

    A couple of mine are on the way, S/N Cujo and Christine.
    I'd also like a S/N Firestarter and Skeleton Crew.

    I don't have many Holy Grails in my collection, but last year I happened upon a "second state" first edition of Salem's Lot at an antique store for $15. My heart skipped a few beats, to say the least. Perhaps only a "first state" dust jacket would be worthy of this thread, but since there are only four or so of those known to exist (from what I've read), I'll take the ~$800 second state for less than twenty bucks as an amazing find!

    The EP treatment of The Lair of the White Worm certainly made the reading experience much more enjoyable!

    After much thought on this subject my choice would be a signed first edition of The Martian Chronicles. As I have said many times that is the book that got me hooked as a reader.To own a first edition signed by the man himself would be the greatest.

    I read that in my first year of high school, I remember it blew me away at the time. Oddly enough I don't think I've read any Bradbury since though.

    Managed to order EP's edition of The Lair of the White Worm, but couldn't get the man to let me order The Phantom of the Opera, even though they still have them in stock. Oh well, I'll try again in a couple of days.
