    Just noticed that in the pic the book looks like it's made out of leather. Doesn't quite have the same 'look' when you actually see it tho.

    And that is when you have to get them, as they are hard to find, that's what makes it so much fun (and aggrevating). I mostly find them at Goodwills or Half Price Books. You might be able to go online to HPB and see if they might have some for sale. I know you can get them thru amazon, too.

    Sometimes you can get them cheap because there's not a big market for them.

    Sweet! For some reason the UK edition of Skeleton Crew seems to go for a substantial sum. Don't know why. At least whenever I've seen it in a used bookstore or online.

    Sweetheart, it's all about location, location, location. They charge 1.99 for a hardback and .99 for paperbacks here in Spokane at Goodwill. I think in Seattle it's 2.99 and .69 respectively.

    Just really makes you wonder how these things end up at Goodwill, eh?

    I hope you're looking for those elusive Bachman paperbacks every time you go in there......

    I want the next one you find!! I can never find that anywhere. I always seem to run across The Running Man. Rarely The Long Walk. Never Rage.
