The Gunslinger

Post by Teddy » Mon Sep 02, 2019 2:18 pm

I have a mint condition copy of a paperback of The Gunslinger which is an odd size and was wondering if there is any value to it. I believe it could be a rare find. Opinions are more than welcome!

Hi Teddy, More info is needed re your book. A picture would be great. There have been numerous editions of The Gunslinger published and it's impossible to identify what you have from what you have said.

Hey Teddy, yeah a picture is worth a thousand words as they say, but from your description is it possibly a PLUME paperback? Something like this perhaps?

I believe that you are correct. Unfortunately, that particular book is packed away. That being said, does it hold any value? If my memory serves me correctly, I have the copy you have displayed on the right side. Its mint by the way!

Dang it! I think I may have to unpack it! I need to know which one I have! Lol. Taking a second look, I don't remember my copy saying the dark tower beneath the Gunslinger title.
