    Unfortunately, on the receiving end of the order process, it's like being barraged by friendly fire. No matter how you try to prepare for it, the deluge of requests coming in quite often overburden the servers, which is what happened today as well and until SP was able to have their hosting service allocate more bandwidth, it was causing the site to go down.

    I was able to order a signed limited of The Shining after "only" an hour and 10 minutes of trying. But I got one!

    I bought "Guns" by Mr. King. Don't want to work. Just want to read.

    So, I had my little trip to Seattle and did my bookshopping and this is what I got:
    a really nice trade paperback UK edition of Blaze
    an excellant hardback 'Collector's Set' of Just After Sunset that has the dvd of 'N' in it (never even opened), it was on the clearance bin at Half Price Books for $2.00-yes, only $2.00!!!

    Best of all was the paperback of 'Discovering Stephen King' by Darrell Schweitzer that had two postcards in it- one was from Stephanie Leonard (who is King's sister-in-law and one time editor of 'Castle Rock- The Stephen King Newsletter) and the other postcard is handwritten which I believe is in Stephen King's writing!! You be the judge:

    Got this at Half Price Books also, all for only $10.00!! I'm pretty sure that it's King's writing- I think he usually signs 'Steve' when he knows the person. Even if it's not his siggy, it is still a bargain.

    I made my last payment on my Gunslinger 1st. I seriously cannot wait. I may cry when it arrives.
