    I have seen Bev Vincent's online guide to the first editions which is great. Also, know about stephenkingcollector.com which lists original pricing and numbers of copies in each run. Does anyone know of a book that combines the two? Something that shows most everything in print with pricing, runs, how to distinguish firsts and other interesting facts (bad dust jackets, etc.)

    Thanks.

    If there is one, I'm not aware of it. I would think the constant revisions would discourage anyone from doing it as a print version and even as a digital version unless someone was willing to give away the updates, it might alienate their target market.

    You might see if you can locate George Beahm's book 'Stephen King Collectibles'. It has tons of valuable info in it, but it only goes up to 'On Writing'. chronologically. It does show what the going prices were (at that time) for King books and will give you valuable info on what editions were printed, etc. I wish there was an updated edition available. Good luck!

    For a while, I was working with Beahm on updating his Collectibles, but we've since lost contact. I think he's go on to other things.
