"Okay, okay, I say, in the third grade I cheated on my history exam, in fourth grade I stole my uncle's toupee and glued it on my face when I played one of the wise men in our school Christmas play, and then in the fifth grade I pushed by brother down the stairs and blamed the dog..." (One of the great scenes featuring Chunk and the Fratelli's / page 108)
Stated "First Printing: June, 1985" with proper number line to the "1" on the copyright page. Signed by James Kahn directly on the title-page. The holy grail for Goonies nuts like this bookseller... Hard to find copies of this book in any condition these days. Based on the screenplay by Chris Columbus and story by Spielberg. Hint of wear to edges. Small brown spot to spine, which remains uncreased. A very respectable copy of the cult classic that launched a generation of treasure hunters, myself included...
Kahn is the author of his own New World Series that includes "World Enough, and Time", "Time's Dark Laughter" and "Timefall" as well as "The Echo Vector." 80's geeks (collectors) like me know Kahn as the author of "The Goonies", "Return of the Jedi", "E.T." and "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom."
