The A beautiful signed set.Critics have compared the Snicket oeuvre to Edward Gorey, the Brothers Grimm and Roald Dahl. They are melodramatic gothic-style cliffhangers, darkly lighthearted books with a contemporary sardonic wit… The inventive use of irony and language, including defining big words… shows that "kids have a nose for literature that is often underestimated" (New York Times).

        The New Lieutenant's Rap

      (n.p.): Philtrum Press. 1999. A limited edition created by King for a party to mark the 25th anniversary of his career as a published novelist and freelance writer, and given out to the attendees of the party. One of "no more than 500" numbered copies signed by the author, and probably a lot scarcer than that: there were reportedly 100 couples at the party who received copies of the book, and it turns up so infrequently on the secondary market that we can only conclude that, first, the attendees have generally held onto (or possibly lost) their copies and, second, that other copies of it have not been distributed (if, indeed, they have even been created). A "stopper" for many King collections. The story later appeared in altered form in Hearts from Atlantis. Here the pages reproduce King's handwriting and are bound in saddle-stitched wrappers with a peace sign on the cover. With the stamp of horror writer Stanley Wiater inside the front cover and on the last blank. Fine in original envelope. Together with a peace sign on chain, given out as a party favor. Fine in gift box with bow laid in. Also together with an invitation to the party; two place cards from the event; and two completed and marked copies of the official authorized Stephen King trivia quiz, as written by Wiater for the event. Four pages, 25 questions (these two copies receiving scores of 23 and 24 correct). . First Edition. Softcover.
