Trying not to stalk Mr Pratchett, but...

Postby alanscout » Mon Oct 18, 2010 11:54 pm

does anyone have an idea of when he will next be avilable to sign books? I have, after much searching, tracked down the copy of colour of magic I lost way back when, and wondered if it would be good etiqutte to ask him to sign it for me? :D

TONY!

There was only one signing for I Shall Wear Midnight, on the 1st of September; there won't be any others. That's all I know, but I don't think there's anything else planned...

(Unfortunately, I have only the French-language Vademecum archive to support my assertions; the source links don't seem to work any more)

Your best bet is one of the Cunning Artificers get togethers, the next one is at the end of November

Or keep an eye on the News page at PJSM Prints website. :wink:

But be aware that Terry is not signing books so much now due to his health.

Welcome to the site, alanscout, or you could attend one the Discworld conventions he will be going to that would be your best chance of a definite signing. :)

Welcome to the site.

I recently got a signed copy of I shall wear midnight and I think its fair to say that Terry's signature is now almost unrecognisable.

I doubt that he will be signing for much longer.

Well he experimented with 'thumbing' instead of signing at convention. Saved his wrist but he ended up with a bright red thumb from the fingerprint ink.
