    Harold "Hal" Kinney served as the Co-Chairman of the 1982 World Fantasy Convention (New Haven, CT), to which King refers in his description, but was perhaps best-known as the proprietor of The Bookie of East Hartford, CT, which was notable for its extensive comic and hardcover science fiction and fantasy offerings. This volume comes directly from the Kinney family.
