Item Description

This item is uncommon in the collector’s world. A personal item with a great autograph. You are bidding on an original & authentic signed postcard that was typed by Stephen King and mailed to one of his fans in 1981. It has been with the original owner since then.  In the past,  King had the luxury of time to write and send personalized letters and cards to his fans, and this is representative of that time.. This signed post-card has the following typed message, referencing two upcoming new works, Danse Macabre and Cujo. Size: post-card 5 1/2″ x 3 1/2″


Dear Thomas Wolf,

Thank you for the good words — glad you’ve enjoyed the book. Sorry to have been so long in getting back to you, but I have been at work on a new novel and have had to let the correspondence slide. The next book to be published, this spring, is a non-fiction work on horror, DANSE MACABRE. The next novel, CUJO, will be out this fall. Hope you enjoy them both. Again, thanks for the good letter, and my best to you and yours.

Be well,

Stephen King

PS. Good luck with your writing — sounds like you’ve got the most important quality — dedication.
