Also these days many jackets show quite a bit of fading as well." (From the Stephen King Collector website). We show above pictures of the actual jackets for the books we are offering, please look closely, all have some spotting.

Portfiolio: Berni Wrightson's salute to Stephen King's—CYCLE OF THE WEREWOLF—with 12 color and 12 black and white illustrations. The folio contains a two-page piece by Stephen King that does not appear in THE WEREWOLF book, an essay entitled: "Berni Wrightson: An Appreciation—"As a writer, I value exactness of image—Berni's work has this. I love that sense of kinectic energy, the illustion of forward motion—Berni's work has this as well. Most of all, I value imaginative flair, and all the risk-taking that it entails. Berni's work gleams with that.. . seeing such a faultless replication of an image which existed only in my head, really is impossible to explain. Quite simply, Berni made it real. He has that gift. The results of this partnership of story and image have been greatly gratifying to me . . . Thanks Berni."—Stephen King.
