The Night of the Tiger by Stephen King FIRST EDITION

| /

Originally written by King when he was 16 years old, this is the first appearance of this short story in print. He had submitted it to the same magazine as a teenager, and was rejected. Years later, he found it, reworked it, and submitted it again. It was accepted, of course. Carrie was released two years earlier in 1976. A nice bit of comeuppance for one of our favourite authors. 

Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine, February 1978. 160 pp. 
Softcover. Good+.
