If anyone is interested, I have a handful of copies of the first Hodder hc printing of King's FULL DARK, NO STARS, which is retailing at £18.99 cover, but which I am offering at £12.50 (Pound Sterling) plus postage. It is listed on ABE and I only have a few copies.

I was surprised Full Dark, No Stars was not discounted by more in the UK. I paid £12.50 for it at Waterstones, and Tesco are selling it for £12.

The much larger book, Under the Dome, was only £9.99. Collections usually sell for less than novels.

Well, thank you for alerting potential customers to alternative sources of supply.
Very thoughtful, indeed.

Don't forget to compare the total cost including shipping. Sometimes the book can be a little cheaper but more expensive shipping can bite you.

Congratulations on treating the audience to a line of bargain basement sophistry, which is, certainly, in keeping with your budget-conscious approach to reason, relevance and manners. What, pray tell, has the nature of the "good King community" to do with the matter in hand? What would your response be, I wonder, if you advertised an item for sale in these pages and a third party undermined your chances of parting with it by hyping up the availability of an identical item elsewhere.
Even though my objective was to make cheap copies of the book available to the patrons of this board, I had no great expectations of achieving significant sales - if any - on this forum.
However, the detractor's post served no purpose other than to, gleefully, poopoo my offer and ensure that anyone interested in the book would go elsewhere.
What you are presenting as a mere matter of economics, enlightened members of the genus homo sapiens view as a matter of manners and ethics.
I shan't dwell on it as, in economic terms, calling it "a trifle" would represent an
obese and ungainly overstatement. It is a minimal investment in stock which, if it fails to move now, will, assuredly, do so in the years to come at a much greater profit. However, I find the petulance and pettiness and lack of vision on the part of poster shnnrc01 a little disappointing.
