    No way! Way too rich for my tastes- only way I'd spend that much on a NEW limited lettered is if Steve flew to my house and signed it in front of me and then READ it to me. I only go for the regular signed limiteds and/or the trade copies. Most I ever spent on one of his books was for a copy of the limited of The Stand (price of an older used car!) but it was something I'd wanted for a long time. Got it from David at Bett's Books!

    I was lucky enough to get the Limited Stand from a bookstore in Lansing MI (The Haunted Bookshop) while I was working in the city. I paid a total of $750 for it (this was in 1991, when the book had come out about a year earlier.) The seller wanted $850 for it, but I went in with 15 $50 bills and laid them out on the counter. Worked like a charm! The book was (and is) still in its original shipping carton.

    Well, my original shipping carton is in the closet but the book (in its 'coffin') is in a glass-fronted bookcase.
