Rare Stephen King book up for auction to raise funds for shelter

0

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 said there are only 550 copies of the book in a special collector’s box.

Auction proceeds will go to the Emmaus Homeless Shelter’s emergency fuel fund in Ellsworth.

Emmaus director Sister Lucille MacDonald told WABI-TV it’s an “ingenious” way to help people struggling to buy heating oil.
