click for a larger image of item #29993, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon (NY), Scribner, (1999). A novel in which a lost girl channels the strengths (at the time) of Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Tom Gordon for comfort. Signed by King. With the bookplate of horror writer Stanley Wiater on the front pastedown; fine in a fine dust jacket. One of King's scarcest trade editions to find signed, presumably because of the difficult logistics of handling a Stephen King book signing in recent years, due to his extreme popularity. This copy was a gift to attendees at the dinner celebrating King's 25th anniversary as a published writer, which Wiater attended with his wife. A limited edition of this title was published several years later, and a pop-up edition of it was done as well. Signed copies of the trade first edition are exceedingly scarce. [#029993] $1,000

click for a larger image of item #30298, Stephen King Talks and Reads [Bag of Bones Audio Preview] [NY], Scribner/Simon & Schuster Audio, 1998. An advance promotional cassette for this novel that was positioned by King's publisher as more of a mainstream novel and love story than the kind of horror novel the author is most famous for. On the tape, King talks about the novel and reads a preview. Likely listened to, but near fine or better in the publisher's cardstock cassette case. With the card of a Scribner publicity director laid in. [#030298] $115
(NY), Plume, (1996). First thus: a collection of the four early Bachman novels, Rage, The Long Walk, Roadwork and Running Man, but with a brand new introduction by King, "The Importance of Being Bachman." The first omnibus edition, in 1985, had a different introduction by King. Stamp of another writer inside the front cover; fine in wrappers. [#030297] $95
(NY), Scribner, (2004). The two writers' account of the Boston Red Sox championship season of 2004. King and O'Nan, both longtime and long-suffering Red Sox fans, decided at the beginning of the season to collaborate on a book about the Red Sox season. As VIP fans, the two had more access to the players than usual, and their account is lively and engaging; that the Sox broke an 86 year-long "curse" to win the World Series that year couldn't have been better scripted. Signed by O'Nan. Fine in a fine dust jacket. [#915454] $70
