I was excited to see the news of a limited edition of The Shining going on sale, but when I got to the site all the signed copies had already been sold out. This happens every single time I find out that signed copies are for sale, they are already sold out. Am I doing something wrong? How do other people get to these signed editions before me every single time?
Does anyone out there have any advice for how to get a reasonably-priced signed book by SK? Since he has not done any signing tours in or near Pittsburgh for the last 30 years (that I know of) I haven't gotten a chance to just get an autograph from him in person, which would obviously be the cheapest option. I'm not one of those people who has to snap up every copy he can get his hands on, I just would like to own one signed SK book before I die!
Any ideas or tips for reputable and reasonable book dealers would be appreciated.
