Wanna buy a Stephen King Autograph?

This fall, Scribner, Stephen King's publisher, is going to make autographed first editions of his novel "Under the Dome" available on their website. For the low, low price (read that last line in your best used car salesman voice) of....$200 apiece!

They are planning to sell 1,500 copies of the signed novels. Publisher Susan Moldow released a statement saying "This is fighting back against the disappearance of the book as an object."

Uh, okay.

At least the autograph collecting fans will be happy.

I can,t believe it anymore. The man is such a literal genious and one of the greatest writers today. and he refuses to sign anything unless it is paid for. I wrote him at an address and told him I was looking for an autograph for my wife who is one of his biggest fans. she has every book he has written, well the ones i could afford atleast, haha. he sent back a letter and said he does not sign anymore, too many fans i guess. such a bad thing you can see. He did not even sign the letter it was a computer generated letter. i was dissappointed.

I went to King's book signing in Atlanta in Nov. Even though the book lists for $35 the store to their credit sold them at their normal discount price at $24.50. I didn't even notice until I glanced at the receipt while standing in line. I also give King kudos for blazing through some 500 books (one per person) in just over an hour. Yet each autograph was the same no sloppy seconds. He even had time to take care of the stand-by line.
