I am offering for your bidding pleasure a very rare magazine titled "Contraband #2" published by Contraband Press on December 1, 1971. The booklet is in very good condition. On the top left quarter of the front cover it looks as if a small strip was peeled off the top layer of the cover. The pages are unnumbered with no sign of coloring on them. There is what looks like a dried wet spot on the title page of the Tabitha King story which bleeds through to the previous page. Please see scanned images.
There is a story in this 2nd issue of Contraband by Stephen King titled "The Hardcase Speaks". The poem runs four pages. His name was mispelled as "Stephan King" on the page atop his story and on the outside back cover of the booklet. The story in the booklet after Stephen King's is titled "The Last Vampire: A Baroque Fugue" which was written by Tabitha King. Her poem runs for seven pages. This is a very rare item and would certainly make a great addition to any Stephen King collection.
