Terry in Chiswick

Postby Who's Wee Dug » Fri Jul 23, 2010 6:58 pm

Buggerit, when I've moved back home along comes the Chiswick book Festival which was only 3 to 4 miles from where I lived ten minutes on the tube. :cry: would not have been able to go anyway as it's the same weekend as our BFS Fantasycon in Nottingham.

Do you think he was waiting for you to move before he agreed to visit??

Hooray!

Today's the day and I'll be there.

However, I noticed on the festival web-site that it says at the 'signing' after the talk:

"copies of I SHALL WEAR MIDNIGHT will be stamped with a souvenir stamp and a thumbprint from Sir Terry Pratchett, who after thirty years of signing books has succumbed to arthritis."

I already have a signed copy of the book. But this made me go "Oh!" and :( for Sir Pterry.

Signings have caused him problems for years, sadly. I know that he's had to have a bowl of ice on hand (or wrist) in the past because of the strain. :(

Signing with a thumb print could get a bit messy after a while.

Mind you, someone waiting in the queue could always start singing 'Someday my prints will come"! :oops:
