I have no idea which book it might have been because Terry Pratchett usually brings out at least two books a year. If you could tell us what year it was and what time of year, we might have more to go on.

But as One Man Bucket says, the only way you'll get a signed book now is by ordering from the link. And Terry doesn't usually do dedications any more.

Good luck.

It's a shame he doesn't. I got one from Paul, but I couldn't have asked him to sign one of my normal copies at Hogswatch because it said so in the rules. Getting a handshake from him was really cool, but I would have preferred a dedicated autograph. And we all know that unfortunately time to get one is dwindling :cry: .

Although I have had lots of books signed by Terry over the years I only have a couple of specific dedications as I don't ask for them. I'm quite happy to get the signature and maybe a comment appropriate to the book.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I was at the signing and I remember that particular one - I'm pretty sure it was Nation . . . I think your only chance to get another personalised book would be to make it to a signing and hope for the best
Does anyone else believe their dreams are actually an alternate reality?

I think you're probably right. Good to see you again Magrat. :)

Hi again Magrat. But I think he'd get a thumbprint, same as everyone else.

I think Terry has very good reasons for not signing/dedicating any more, which is a shame for those who missed out, but a thumbprint is still kind of cool :wink:
