Yes, this book is priced much higher then normal market conditions would allow, but that's because it's really the same as a prototype
It's the same with any product, make a 1-off (or 2 off in this case) is incredibly expensive. WAAY more expensive then the product would normally sell for....The cost only goes down when you can mass produce the item in some quantity. Also, $1,000 of the cost was built in to get SK to sign the book (donation to Haven foundation)
It is a unique edition though, with it's own limitation page signed by King, I'll probably need to make a modification to the 'Salem's Lot page and mention this one.
Heard about a new SK project? Maybe there's a new book signing you know of - Post it here!
