    I got this over the weekend. It has a rather interesting provenance. This is a manuscript that was sent from Ralph M. Vincinanza's office (King's agent at the time. He passed away suddenly in 2010.) to a Dutch publisher. The publisher donated it to a Dutch Stephen King fan group which sold it. The eventual owner then sold it to me.

    The first page of the story 1922:



    And the first page of the story Big Driver:




    Thanks, Niels!

    Just received a grab-bag from Cemetary Dance that contained a signed copy of the chapbook 'Blood In Your Ears' by Kevin Quigley (it's all about audio books of King's books). Does that count?

    Just received my copy of Doubleday's 'The World Fantasy Awards Vol. 2' yesterday from ebay. It contains Jerusalem's Lot. MInd you, this anthology didn't see print until 1980, but in the introduction at the top of the page for King's story, it already says 'Stephen King is the most successful practitioner of horror fiction to have ever lived.' Boy, were they ever spot-on!!

    I'm also going to buy a book called 'The Sisters From Hardscrabble Bay' by Beverly Jensen. She had a wonderful story featured in The Best American Short Stories 2007 that was edited by Stephen King. Her story reminded me of something that Fannie Flagg would've written. Both story and book were published post-humously and SK had alot to do with that, from what I've gathered.

    Synopsis

    A tale of two sisters over seventy years that recovers the vibrant and unforgettable voice of Beverly Jensen In 1916, Idella and Avis Hillock live on the edge of a chilly bluff in New Brunswick-a hardscrabble world of potato farms and lobster traps, rough men, hard work, and baffling beauty. From "Gone," the heartbreaking story of their mother's medical crisis in childbirth, to the darkly comic "Wake," which follows the grown siblings' catastrophic efforts to escort their father, "Wild Bill" Hillock's body to his funeral, the stories of Idella and Avis offer a compelling and wry vision of two remarkable women. The vivid cast includes Idella's philandering husband Edward, her bewilderingly difficult mother-in-law- and Avis, whose serial romantic disasters never quell her irrepressible spirit. Jensen's work evokes a time gone by and reads like an instant American classic. Beverly Jensen died of cancer at the age of forty-nine without publishing her work. Since her death, her fiction has been championed by a dedicated group of supporters, including Stephen King and Joyce Carol Oates.
