As we all know, us collectors love to see books! So, why not create a thread in which we can showcase our non-SK book collections and/or most prized collectibles? Please do so here; I also created a Stephen King collections thread in the appropriate subforum (click: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=356).

As for me, I'm only just beginning to collect my other favorite authors in hardcover 1sts, so I don't have anything to show yet, but I'm sure many of you have impressive collections of other authors.... so please share! :D This thread was inspired by ur2ndbiggestfan's amazing Jack Vance collection posted over in another thread.

Okay, just to trigger you guys a bit ;) here's my very modest but evolving collection of Michael Crichton US 1st/1sts:



Left to right: The Andromeda Strain, The Terminal Man, The Great Train Robbery, Electronic Life, Jurassic Park, The Lost World, Airframe, Timeline.
In front: proof, ARC, and trade HC of Sphere.

Very nice! I will post some pics soon, never fear, I'm trying out a different camera because I am dissatisfied with the quality of my pictures. I loved THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN and THE TERMINAL MAN but the only 1st I have is the US paperback edition of TTM! I also liked the movie he directed, THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY.

Always looking forward to your pics :) I've always loved Michael Crichton's books and a couple of months ago I decided I should start getting his work in hardcovers. And as long as you're not going for S/Ls (there are a couple of those) or his pseudonyms (John Lange, among others), Michael Crichton is an easy author to collect. There are only 19 books, plus proofs/ARCs if one is so inclined. And they're not that expensive either. I paid $69 for The Andromeda Strain and $55 for the Sphere proof, but the other books were all in the $7.50 - $15 range.

Here are my Robert Bloch books including Thomas Harris, who is also quite easy to collect.

End of Clarke, all Eisenstein, beginning of Ellison. I finally figured out how to take clearer pictures!
