Stephen King Hodder UK Paperbacks "Kingbows"

These rainbow Stephen Kings (oxymoron amiright?) were published in 2007-2008 by Hodder UK, and while you can still find them, the condition is almost never as advertised! And this is coming from someone who has ordered a lot of "Very Good" condition paperbacks. These get rarer by the DAY so grab them up when you see them for a good price!

*Hint: Some of these have a white spine with the title lettering matching the cover. I'll star these for you!

The Bachman Books 9780340952252

Bag of Bones 9780340951422

Black House 9780007100446 (Notes: This is a shared ISBN with the black version. I haven't figured out how to tell them apart without emailing the seller to confirm it's the white and red cover, so this one is VERY difficult to find, a white whale!)

Christine 9780340951408

The Dark Half 9780340952610

The Dead Zone 9780340952689 (the coral with light pink cover - mine is 1st printing; hot pink with white cover - mine is 5th printing)

Everything's Eventual 1408 9780340952061 (black and gold movie edition - mine is a 4th printing - it's important to note here that the black and gold and the above red-orange ones share an ISBN and are IDENTICAL on the inside. I don't think they did two different printings for the movie - I think they did two covers depending on WHERE they distributed them.)

Lisey's Story* 9780340898956 (This one has a butterfly in place of the Hodder H on the spine! There are 2 printing editions, the first printing has a red title font and I believe all other printings have white. Same ISBN for both.)
