    I kind of specialize in King's pre-publication works. Here's a link to the proofs I own:

    Still not helpful to ME figuring out how to get them early but rad nonetheless.

    The intention by publishers for distributing ARCs is to get them to people who will review them (hopefully favorably) in places where those reviews will be seen and pique interest and sales.

    Oh.

    I guess that means me reviewing things for all of us here at the SKMB wouldn't pique too much interest as interest is already piqued.

    Fine. I'll wait like the rest of the world.

    I know when to give up.

    Or try to find a gig doing reviews for a publication that would merit getting an ARC.

    That would actually be really, really fun.

    But I'd have a hard time being mean if I knew it might affect someone's paycheck/art.

    I can be the "find the good parts in any book" reviewer!

    Wow, that's quite a list! Have you told the board how you got started doing this? I've seen reviews here and
    there from those who have access to stories prior to the general public. I live out here on the perimeter so it's
    difficult to fathom how some things happen. Are you associated w/the publishing industry, otherwise?

    I just became interested in acquiring the proofs when I didn't like waiting for the actual book to be published. Juvenile, yes, but that's what started it. I found that I really enjoyed finding all the pre-publication items I could. It's a real challenge. I also have a goodly number of manuscripts, F&Gs (Folded & Gathered), etc. Of course, I have almost all the US and UK first edition/first printings, most of the signed limiteds, anthologies with King's writings in them, almost all the magazine with King stories (I'm missing a couple issues of Ubris), lots of the comics, and books about King. I also have many of the art portfolios that have been published. Now that I'm retired on a more or less fixed income, it's become more of a challenge.

    I've been collecting King proofs for more than a decade. It's become almost an obsession.

    I'm not associated in any way with any publishers. I started by searching eBay, ABE, etc. and made contact with people who were willing to part with their copies for a price.
