Is It Worth The Price?

    Hello all! I've seen this online, usually used, and cheap (add shipping, might as well buy it new!) I've read about it (SK wrote and there's photos of gargoyles?) So now, I trust all of you, is it worth the investment?

    I enjoy mine. I bought two copys. I got one with out a dust jacket. Then found one with a dust jacket for a few dollars. So had to buy that too.

    It does have a rather long and interesting essay in it by King and the photos are beautiful and haunting. That said, if you're a King completist (or on the way to being one) then it is well worth the price. I don't regret buying my copy when it was first published and paid full price for it, too.

    Depends on what you're gonna pay for it. It is a nice book....looks great on a coffee table, and is an interesting conversation piece.
    Don't over pay for it though....

    ...I feel it was well worth what I payed for it years ago, when it was first released...

    Have enjoyed my copy both to read/ re read as well as coffee table piece. Photographs are beautiful. As others said, depends on price you would pay.

    Thanks, all! Sounds like it's not just short text & pics.

    King's essay runs for 20 pages, although some of the text on each page only uses half (or less) of the page. There are a couple of gate-fold photos , meaning that you open the book to that page and then have to fold out the picture to see the whole thing). This is one title that I don't have a duplicate copy of. Must get one soon!

    Love this book and have fond memories of the day when I finally got it after reading about it in a book about King. I'm one of those who sees it as a King-book. but a different one, of course.
