    Grant, I got my copy of the Four Past Midnight today and, irregardless of the photo in the auction, it has the gold Stephen King. I'll keep looking and make sure I ask before I buy the next time.

    How is "state" being used here? I can't figure it out. Printing run?

    State usually refers to changes within a print run. Sometimes it's as simple as with the UK 11/22/63 Where some of the dust jackets have red text and others have a silver text. Other times it's typo within the book itself.

    So did your copy arrive Grant? Gold letters or not?

    Gold letters Pete, made the same mistake that John made - should have asked rather than assumed that a picture posted on eBay was wholly accurate (would say that the flash angle made the writing on the front cover look white). Have looked on eBay and ABE periodically since, but haven't come across one as yet

    Speaking of SK 1sts, do you have all three states of The Tommy Knockers, Mr. Woot? I've got two of them, with "stephen King" in red and white,. I haven't beem able to find the silver (with blue light coming from the title instead of green).

    Yep, and I have the 4th state too, that's the one where, if you hold it at an exact 72 degree angle towards the west when the sun is at its very apogee, a purple laser beam shoots out your ass and vaporises the family cat

    It's not all bad Pete, gives me something to chase (along with one of two others)

    Indeed, it does. I've got plenty to chase so I'm not worried there. Need to chase more of the green so I can chase the books!

    Unfortunate that the pursuit of the latter necessitates the chasing (and acquisition) of the former
