We do indeed - it's just opened. :D

I went in there this morning and sure enough they have the Last Hero - but I suddenly thought - I have a copy, what do I really want with another? So I didn't bother. :D

They had the soft cover version there as well which had 16 extra artwork pages that the hardback did not have.

Thanks Dug, but no thanks. Although I've got the hardback, Sharlene has the soft covered version. Kind of you to offer though. :)

Not heard of Mirrormask though. Please let me know what it's like?
Best wishes,

There's a lovely little secondhand bookshop in Dover that was very useful recently. On my journey through the Discwold from the beginning I discovered that my collection was missing Small Gods (Shock, Horror!):shock: I knew I'd read it and couldn't believe I didn't own it. My collection is by no means classic, hardback after 'Hogfather, thanks to Him each year, the rest mainly 'pre-owned' paperback. This little shop seems to have the whole series in stock, including a few hardbacks. What I don't understand is why anyone, having read Pterry would ever want to part with one of his works. :D
I think the answer lies in the soil, ooo arrr!

That's what I always think on the rare occasions I see a Pterry in a charity shop. :?

I just picked up a paperback of 'Something Rotten' by Jasper Fforde from Poundland for £1.

The Works have some Patrick O'Brien books at 3 for £5. :wink:

There's a big Frech supermarket about an hour away and they have a small section of English books. The other day I was in there and they had a load of books reduced to 3 pounds each, so I bought "Revenge of Gaie". But what else did I see? A copy of Wintersmith for 3 pounds!
