Easton Press – George Bush “George Bush, All The Best” Signed Limited Edition, Leather Bound w/COA [Sealed]

Though reticent in public, George Bush has openly shared his private thoughts in his correspondence throughout his life. Fortunately, since the former president does not plan to write his autobiography, this collection of letters, diary entries, and memos, with his accompanying commentary, will fill that void. Organized chronologically, the volume begins with eighteen-year-old George’s letters to his parents during World War II, when, at the time he was commissioned, he was the youngest pilot in the Navy. Readers will gain insights into Bush’s career highlights — the oil business, his two terms in Congress, his ambassadorship to the U.N., his service as an envoy in China, his tenure with the Central Intelligence Agency, and of course, the vice presidency, the presidency, and the post presidency.

Stephen King “Bag of Bones” Signed First Edition, First Printing dj/HC [Fine/Fine]

Bag of Bones is partly inspired by Daphne du Maurier’s classic Rebecca, but there’s more than homage in this novel of horror and romance. Like du Maurier’s Manderley, King’s scary old place (on the shore of Maine’s remote Dark Score Lake) is haunted by the late lady of the manor. There are many gory ghosts afoot, though: men, women, and wailing kids. The hero, a thriller novelist, stirs up hell’s plenty of angry shades while investigating his wife’s death. It turns out she either had a dark secret herself or was onto some dread scandal lurking in Dark Score Lake. As in King’s previous book, Wizard and Glass, the fabric of reality is thin, and nosy narrators are in peril of plunging right out of this world and into a rather hostile other world.
