First you rob a bank. LOL. Prices vary signficantly depending on which book. If you are not too choosy, you can pick up one (like "Revival") from Betts in the $200-300 range. I wouldn't buy off of ebay because there are many forgeries. Rarer and more desirable first editions of books like IT or The Stand generally go for a lot more if you can even find one. The Dark Tower forum is a great place for King collectors. I think they have a classified section where you can note a request that you are looking to buy something King related: thedarktower.org

I am a huge fan of Stephen King and my son has also grown to love his writing as well.
My question is, how can I get my hands on an autographed copy of one of his books for my son's birthday?
Bett's is definitely a great place to start, usually with the best prices. In a few weeks the new book comes out and there will probably be some signed copies available from the book tour.

Crystal Did you ever get a book for your son? I have copies of End of Watch. It is a 6th printing i picked up from New York Library of Congress. I usually give them as gifts to fans (not collectors). Weird collectors dont usually like 6th printings. I love ALL my signed king books! I DO NOT sell King books, but if you never got a signed book let me know. I DONT SELL I do horde though.

I never did get him a copy, I got busy with what life throws at us.
It’s crazy how time flies when you get busy with family. My son also got 4 weeks leave, so of course I spent as much time as I could with him.
I would still love to get my hands on any autographed book by, Stephen King, still my son’s favorite author.

Oh my goodness, I did get it & I love it!
I was out of town till today so my neighbor had the package. I gave it to my son & he was absolutely in shocked and so pleased.
My son however is a bachelor and wants to keep it here in my bookcase for safe keeping. I collect autographed books for myself by attending author events (mainly contemporary romance but really, I love all books) & I recently purchased a beautiful bookcase with glass doors and humidity control. I’m pleased to have it here so when my book club meets I can show it off, it’s in perfect condition. Thank you so much!
Please let me know if there’s anything I can send you from Washington state, rumor has it we have pretty good coffee and smoked salmon (I don’t care for either but you might) lol
Thank you again!

Sorry to bother you. I was wondering if you might help me find an autographed Stephen King book? I want to gift one to my friend of 22 years who loves Stephen King and is having some health issues. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
