Auction of rare Stephen King book to benefit homeless shelter
ELLSWORTH, Maine — A signed copy of a rare Stephen King book is up for auction at a Maine bookstore, with proceeds going to a nearby homeless shelter’s emergency home heating fund.
The copy of “The Regulators,” written by horror writer and Maine native King under the pen name Richard Bachman, was donated by a customer of Scottie’s Bookhouse in Hancock.
Owner Michael Riggs says only 550 copies of the book in a special collector’s box exist.
Auction proceeds will go to the Emmaus Homeless Shelter’s emergency fuel fund in Ellsworth.
