Rare Stephen King book for auction in Maine

A signed copy of a rare Stephen King book is up for auction at a Maine bookstore, with proceeds going to a homeless shelter’s emergency home heating fund. The copy of the ‘‘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 says 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.
