Fan submitted reviews of Secretary of Dreams, Vol. 1, The (Limited Edition):|

These books are high priced because they are limited editions. They of course are all first prints because there will never be a second printing! Cemetery Dance has put out several Stephen King books this way. They always make 52 lettered signed editions, 750 signed editions, and around 3000-5000 gift editions. There is no second run of these books. These books aren't priced for your casual collector. And to nab one in the future, sign up for their email!

I myself cannot afford a copy of this title and very much would love to have one.. However, with this type of work I can appreciate the price.. There is a lot of work that goes into a graphic novel, even beyond the author. Chadbourne has to be paid as well and, it is after all a Limited Ed. and Collectors item.. I suppose if I had made an attempt to purchase this at it's release I may have had a chance.. I am however not going to give up on my search for one.. Thank You Stephen! Especially for The Dark Tower series it is a masterpiece..

I dont understand...is there an affordable release of vol 1?

I love Stephen King but the price of SoD vol1 is way out of my price range, volume II was also but I received it as a gift. Look at Little sisters of Eluria - $75.00 - no book is worth that. Come on Stephen - give us a price break....

I agree with the other posts, why are we hearing about volumn II when we couldn't buy volumn I??? I am a devout SK fan and have most of his books, why are there other books out of my reach (and price range)??? I priced Volumn 1 on line and the prices are outrageous, even on E-Bay!! I am still a devout fan but would like the opportunity to be able to buy SK's works, ALL OF THEM, before second volumns are released.

The guy is immensely wealthy by now, so what is all this about ? And whatever happened to the the rest of 'The Plant '?

I am disappointed as well that the first time I see this is when Vol II is being advertised on Amazon and only after I put in my pre-order for Mr. King's current release. I have all his books and went through the decade plus long wait for the entire Gunslinger series. Kind of kills the "dear constant reader" opening...

Wait a minute. This is just a collection of previously released material. I rescind my previous comment. I don't mind if the material is out there to be read and then re-released in a collectible format. That makes sense to me, I guess. Sorry.

I agree with David Argyle. I have no issue with special editions of books that have a full run in addition, but books that require a huge investment is not very fair for the "contant reader." Can someone explain it?

i am sure there are hundreds of collectors who have most of stephens books so why does he put some out of reach from us .a little unfair i think . regards david argyle

Where can I find The Secretary of Dreams, Vol. 1?
Posted By: Sylvanna Rayne - October 24th, 2008 12:53:42 pm EDT
...because the edition you're looking at is probably not only hardcover, but a deluxe or limited edition... If you were looking to buy a signed copy, the price will be even higher. If you want it at an affordable price, you can try searching for a paper back or second hand copy. This version here is also first edition.... Hope this helps...

No offense but i have a lot of King books and i thought he had A LOT of money why is this company charging us 75 dollars for a brand new book. I have seen better prices on some of his classics
