Rare Stephen King Items Offered from Rocky Wood's Collection
Hello Everyone,

Today's newsletter is a very special and personal letter from author Rocky Wood, whose voice many of you know in the Stephen King world.

Rocky recently contacted us to help sell his extensive collection of Stephen King books and items. Many of these are very rare proofs, UK / Australian only releases and there is only one of each item available.

We're very honored to help Rocky and his family in this endeavor. He has written a personal letter for the Overlook Connection readers and we've posted it below.

Some Notes on Rocky Wood, the author:

= Stephen King: The Non-Fiction by Rocky Wood with co-author Justin Brooks.

= Stephen King: Uncollected, Unpublished by Rocky Wood, David Rawsthorme, and Norma Blackbum.

= In late 2010 this collection was released by Rocky Wood and artist Glenn Chadbourne "Horrors: Great Stories of Fear and Their Creators"

== FREE SET! with every Rocky Wood Order: 1 set of Nightmares and Dreamscapes post card set. This set, created by artist John Mercer, features 9 postcards each with original artwork highlighting individual stories from the Stephen King collection.

Rocky has some wonderful items offered for sale. There is "so much stuff" that we're having to add a block at a time. Right now there are about 200 items up. We'll add more items every few days now that the first list is up. So Check Back!! More items are going up and there are lots of proofs, signed items, promotional and very rare pieces.

Except for operating costs, all of the funds are going to the Wood family in this endeavor.

We are here for you Rock, and I know everyone reading this today will support you anyway they can.

Y'all keep on Shining out there and Thank You for your support with this sale :-)

Dave Hinchberger
Owner, Overlook Connection Bookstore and Press

Please Note: No discounts / credits can be used for this collection as I'm sure you understand.

Dear Fellow Constant Reader
In this Newsletter our good friend Dave Hinchberger catalogs the first portion of my extensive Stephen King collection, which we are offering for sale.

As one of the leading experts on King's work, with four significant books about King and years of research under my belt (including no less than seven research trips to Maine from Australia) you might be wondering why I, of all people, would be selling my rare and valuable King materials.

And you'd be right to wonder. Packaging up this material for shipment to Dave was an emotional experience. Many of these magazines, newspapers, books and DVDs come with great memories of how I collected them over many years, some bargains, some not! But all treasures and sources for my King books and articles; and of course hours and hours of the type of reading pleasure Stephen King provides.

Unfortunately, I was recently diagnosed with ALS or Motor Neurone Disease (known in North America as Lou Gehrig's Disease). This is a particularly nasty disease - in simple terms it results in the death of the nerve cells running to muscles, which effectively kills the muscles or renders them inoperative. Each patient declines in a different manner, but over a period of time all are crippled by the disease, being left unable to speak, type or indeed move at all. Communication is restricted to blinking and eye movement. It is invariably (a nice way of saying 100%) fatal and despite decades of research there is no treatment (other than of the symptoms) or cure.

So, you can imagine the diagnosis is devastating for my family and friends. We are fortunate in Australia to have a reasonably effective form of socialised medicine but I still face many large costs around home care, modifications to my home, medical equipment and so on, as well as a decrease in income when I can no longer work. The most important piece of equipment I wish to fund is an Eye-Gaze device that allows disabled people to communicate via eye movements recorded while looking at a computer screen. This is amazing and wonderful new technology but costs around $25,000. I hope to purchase one and have it donated to Motor Neurone Disease Victoria for continued use after I pass on.

So, the funds raised my selling this collection will be applied to my medical and care needs.

But in many ways there is another reason for selling the collection this way that is just as important. As much as I valued these individual publications, screenplays and so on I know there will be other King fans and readers who feel the same way. I hope they will each be sold to a reader or fan who values them, will protect them and one day pass them on to other King fans as the decades pass.

So, Constant Readers, I hope you enjoy perusing this catalog and any of the items you may purchase. To learn more about ALS/Motor Neurone Disease please visit . They and similar organisations in your home country if you're not American, accept donations to help in research to eliminate this dreadful disease, or to assist in the care for sufferers.
