"I donít know about you but Iím often asked if a King book is a first edition? Is it worth anything? What about this edition or that? Well, since Kingís published a lot of books and itís hard to keep track of every edition this has always been questions thatís been hard to answer-until now. Now I can just point whoeverís asking to Veryfinebooks and their Stephen King Collector's Guides. Here youíll find what you need."

Stephen King was born in Portland, Maine in 1947, the second son of Donald and Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King. He made his first professional short story sale in 1967 to Startling Mystery Stories. In the fall of 1973, he began teaching high school English classes at Hampden Academy, the public high school in Hampden, Maine.
Writing in the evenings and on the weekends, he continued to produce short stories and to work on novels. In the spring of 1973, Doubleday & Co., accepted the novel Carrie for publication, providing him the means to leave teaching and write full-time. He has since published over 50 books and has become one of the world's most successful writers.
Stephen King has written more than fifty novels and two hundred short stories. He is the recipient of the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters and he also received the O. Henry Award for his story "The Man in the Black Suit." Among his most recent worldwide bestsellers are Under the Dome, Cell, Lisey's Story, and Duma Key.
"Extremely satisfied with the book quality, packing, shipping speed and communication. The signed Stephen King books I received were awesome! They are a 50th birthday gift for my husband and as a huge Stephen King fan he will love them. The books were exactly as described and the shipping was extremely fast - they made it to Australia in 7 business days! I only have praise for Very Fine Books' service - it was fantastic!"
