I have some UK 1st editions a friend wants to aquire - how does one price these? I know this website prices US 1st editions with a standard pricing - should I just add $10 or $20 for UK 1st editions?

It depends on which first editions you have. Some of the UK firsts are fairly scarce, so that's the main factor. Also, condition is important as usual.

I would not recommend simply adding a set amount to the retail price. This is true only in the case of King's more recent books, which, in the US, have immense printruns (over 1 million copies, usually!)

You may want to try Betts Books online for exapmles of retail. i.e. Misery is $50.00 retail. Good Luck

Bett's is a little high in this regard.

I would say:

$10 - The Dark Half, On Writing

$20 - Tommyknockers, Four Past Midnight, Misery

$30 - It

But even that is heavily dependent on condition, as well as if the jackets are priced or the blank export ones.

I have a related question regarding UK firsts. I don't know much about UK editions of King's books and I ran across a copy of Pet Sematary and was wondering how you can tell if it is a first edition and if it is a first edition what it is worth. Both the book and DJ are in fine condition.

The first Hodder & Stoughton edition should state on the copyroght page:
Copyright 1983 by Stephen King. And have no other dates or reprints.
The jacket price is £8.95 and that's what it is still worth.
