Did anyone get this email today?

I probably won't get it but I thought it was one for Mr M. Collector :)

Exclusive Fans' Edition of I Shall Wear Midnight
Including ONE signed copy!

To celebrate the publication of I Shall Wear Midnight, a very special hardback edition has been created just in time for Christmas, featuring a magical cover image made up of fans' faces.

At the end of October, over 2000 of Terry Pratchett's fans submitted their picture for the chance to appear on the book's front cover. Perhaps you were one of them.

The special edition is now available to pre-order exclusively from Amazon.co.uk* ahead of publication on 2nd December. The names of the fans featured on the cover are printed on the inside of the dust jacket.

Hidden amongst the stock of this special fans' edition is just one copy which contains the signature of Sir Terry Pratchett himself.

Pre-order your copy now to stand a chance of owning this unique book.

Best of luck.

If I get the signed book, do I get to visit the chocolate factory, see the Oompa Loompas and ride in the big glass elevator?

I have to admit, I'm a bit annoyed at what appears to be a cynical money-making exercise by Terry and his publishers.
