I was looking through craigslist today and found someone selling 8 King books for $15. Nothing out of the ordinary...except a copy of Salems Lot with the phrase "A new novel by the author of Carrie". From what I can tell, the BCE don't use the word "new". I will pick it up no matter what, as i don't even have a Place Holder copy yet, but curiosty (and no small amount of hope) has got the best of me.

Thoughts?

EDIT: Picked them up today and it is a BCE. Oh well we can always dream, right? ;)

Sure can :) Mainly just check if there's a price on the DJ. No Price = BCE.

Unfortunatly, i could only go by the one picture posted by the seller. The entire thing turned into a "Lesson Learned" thing anyways. The place was so nasty and the seller was so weird that I was just trying to pay for them and get out. I never even opend the bags to see what I was leaving with!

Two BCE, one with a totaly roached out DJ, and a beat-to-crap library copy. Plus they all reeked of smoke. (after five minuets, so did I) :cry:

So I pretty much payed $15 for a much more valuable lesson... Never be in so much of a hurry that you don't look at what the heck you are buying!

I have a copy of Bag of Bones with no price on dust jacket but number line with 1 - 10 on it. Is it a BCE or first edition ?

Sometimes they use up the unsold 1st edition books until they are all gone, then they print more. The no-price on the DJ is the same for them all.

It might just be a 1st edition book with a BCE dust jacket.
