Important Announcement re: Facebook

February 12, 2023

I have been completely locked out of my Facebook account due to the inability to transfer 2FA tokens from an old phone that died to a new one. Sadly, I’m not alone and Facebook does not offer any solution to this problem. (Other than lots of sketchy “hackers” offering to help as long as I had over all my account information. That’s not gonna happen.)

Personally, I’d love to never use Facebook again, but losing access to the Facebook Page for this site is quite a loss. I’m still investigating and am holding out a tiny bit of hope, but who knows if/when I’ll get back in.

In the meantime, I’m still on the dumpster fire that is Twitter (@collectkoontz) so feel free to follow me over there.

The Collector’s Guide to Dean Koontz is now online!

May 7, 2018

Welcome to the brand new online version of The Collector’s Guide to Dean Koontz!

What makes this version different than the previous two?

  1. This isn’t just a blog. The blog continues as part of this site, but there is SO MUCH MORE.
  2. This site contains the content of what was going to be in the many-years-late print book from Cemetery Dance Publications. There still may be a book someday, not for now, it’s all available to you, for free, here on this site.

Though today is the official launch date, there’s still a lot of content that’s not on the site yet. As of today, I’ve entered everything from G-Z with some exceptions.

For those of you that like stats, at the time of this post there are 445 guide entries containing 1,044 individual editions and the site as a whole has 1,270 images. By my estimates, only about 50% of the content is in the site right now.

Feel free to comment, submit new content, I just ask that you first read Noah Mitchell’s Foreword, my Introduction, the About the Guide page, and the FAQ, before asking too many questions. There are a lot of answers already on those pages.

In the weeks and months to come I’ll continue to enter more content slowly but surely. Be sure to keep an eye here, or on Facebook or Twitter for continuing news and new content announcements.
