The ideal gift for the King fan this holiday season. A Signed First Edition, personally signed by Stephen King directly into the book along with an original remarque by the artist Jill Bauman.

This book was obtained at the River Run Bookstore during the December 2nd book signing event in Portsmouth, NH. Only 400 people were able to attend this event, which makes this a rare find indeed. Only one book signing took place for this publication.

Scribner 2010. Stephen King "Full Dark, No Stars" dj/HC. Signed First Edition. First Printing with full number line as required on the copyright page. Fine/Fine. A great collectible for the King fan and reader.

Condition: Very Fine for both hardcover and dust-jacket.  Free of markings, writings, or stamps. Unread new copy. Now protected in a brand new plastic Mylar sleeve.


This edition is special because in addition to King's autograph, it has also been personally signed by the artist Jill Bauman and includes an original artistic remarque.

The remarque adds a special value to your book because it is a one-of-a-kind original. This detailed finished color drawing ties in with the subject matter of the edition and is personally and individually drawn for you by Jill Bauman.

Remarquing is only done on a select few books of each edition, thus making them highly collectible. Besides enhancing the appearance and collectibility of your edition, it gives you the unique opportunity to own an original piece of work by the artist.  This original color remarque depicts a scene from the "Big Driver" story. This hand-made piece of artwork was created with a no-smudge Verithin Prisma pencil.

About "Full Dark, No Stars"

"I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger . . ." writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up "1922," the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.

In "Big Driver," a cozy-mystery writer named Tess encounters the stranger along a back road in Massachusetts when she takes a shortcut home after a book-club engagement. Violated and left for dead, Tess plots a revenge that will bring her face-to-face with another stranger: the one inside herself.

"Fair Extension," the shortest of these tales, is perhaps the nastiest and certainly the funniest. Making a deal with the devil not only saves Dave Streeter from a fatal cancer but provides rich recompense for a lifetime of resentment.

When her husband of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a box under a worktable and she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage.


Reviews

"Like Different Seasons and Four Past Midnight, which generated such enduring films as The Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me, Full Dark, No Stars proves Stephen King a master of the long story form. Book Reviews “King [is] the most wonderfully gruesome man on the planet… The pages practically turn themselves.”—Carol Memmott, USA Today

“Full Dark, No Stars is an extraordinary collection, thrillingly merciless, and a career high point.”—The Telegraph (UK)

“A page turner.… King … seems able to write compact tales or gargantuan ones with equal ease.”—Janet Maslin, New York Times

“Might yield another classic… Solid psychological chillers.”—Columbus Dispatch

“Just as gripping as his epic novels.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch
