Whenever I go to a local used book store I check through a few Kings hoping to find a signed one. No luck yet.
Great find! 'Salem's Lot is one of my King top 3.
Don't stop looking! I once found a beautiful un-read hardback copy of Insomnia that was signed. Snatched that one up r-e-a-l fast! I've always wondered just how that book made it to a thrift store in a small town in Washinton (the same town where that interstate freeway bridge collapsed a few months ago).

The signature appears authentic to me but no idea what to think of how it got to a library--unless someone donated it and didn't realize a signed copy would be valuable. Or why the library didn't!
Maybe they didn't realize. Our library has a signed, hardcover, limited run print of one of Jack Ketchum's books, worth thousands the last time I checked, and it's still on the shelf. Crazy people. SO tempted to 'lose' it last time I checked it out (lol), but I couldn't live with myself. Stupid conscience.

I'm such a droofus--I never thought of looking for signed copies. I just do a "Have it...have it... have it..." and move on. Will be checking from now on!

We still have some John Irving and Jack Ketchum signed books left that they donated to benefit The Haven Foundation. We've since discontinued the on-line store part of the Haven Foundation web site but if you're interested, let me know. They're not limited editions but I can guarantee they signed them. Working from home today and can't remember the titles but should be back in the office tomorrow.

I'd be interested in either of them myself, Marsha.
