Like if this guide is helpful

    Stephen King is one of the most sought after, and collected authors of our time. But for some reason there tends to be some confusion when it comes to identifying his first editions. Each book is listed with year of publication and first edition identifiers.  I have also stated books that were first released as paperback or book club, and prices because later editions may change in cost.  The Bachman Books are listed seperatly.
