First trade edition of this horror novel about government intrusion and pyrokinetics, boldly inscribed by King in the year of publication: "For R— and B— With best, Stephen King 8/22/80."

"I like to scare people," said Stephen King. "I like to go for the jugular" (New York Times). "Rooted in the topical realities of the notorious CIA drug experiments… Firestarter has the nitty-gritty reality we've come to expect of King," fulfilling "John D. MacDonald's prediction that King would get away from writing books about 'spooks and spells and slitherings in the cellar" (Leiber in Fear Itself, 111-12). First trade edition, first printing, with no edition statement or printings noted. Preceded only by a signed limited edition published in the same year. Basis for the 1984 film starring Drew Barrymore. Underwood & Miller, 254. Horror Literature 4-131.

In bright price-clipped dust jacket. A fine inscribed copy.
