The Stephen King Collector’s Guide by Rocky Wood and Justin Brooks is a very special CD-ROM. If you’re a collector you’ll love it and if you’re just a reader you won’t. The Stephen King Collector’s Guide is, as I see it, purely for the collector that want’s to keep track of his or hers Stephen King items.

And in The Stephen King Collector’s Guide you can do just that. In lists you can mark of what you have and you can also put down what version you have, what it’s worth and if you have any extra that you want to trade or sell to other collectors.

What it doesn’t have is a lot of information about each item. That is not it’s purpose either but if you want that kind of information, The Stephen King Collector’s Guide is connected to three other books that will have all the info you could ever want. Those books are; A primary Bibliography of the World’s Most Popular Author, Stephen King: Uncollected, Unpublished and Stephen King: The Non-Fiction and in The Stephen King Collector’s Guide you can see what page in each of these books you can read more.

So, The Stephen King Collector’s Guide is the guide to use if you have a lot of different Stephen King items that you feel you want to keep track on. There is however some things that I hope will be changed in upcoming editions of the guide.

1) I would like a table of context (with a link to a specific piece) on each index letter. That would give you a better overview of the index. If you know what you’re looking for it’s no problem but if you want to brows…it’s not easy as it’s done today.

2) I don’t like the fact that you have to print out the pages to tick of what I have and what its worth. That way I loose the search advantages. I’m not sure if it’s technically possible but I would have preferred if I could tick it of in the electronically version and then saved it…

Lilja's final words about The Stephen King Collector’s Guide:

If you’re a serious collector you will benefit from using The Stephen King Collector’s Guide to keep track of your items. If you just have a few items and aren’t really into collecting this is not the thing for you.
