Bargin find

Postby Who's Wee Dug » Fri Jun 10, 2011 1:37 pm

When in Edinburgh yesterday, I found The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman 1st ed H/C, the one with the Chris Riddle artwork on the cover and it was signed by Chris Riddle, for only £2 in a charity shop. :D

Yes I missed it when it 1st came out, went to a reading and signing but it was a ticket only affair and I did not have one, so got it signed at our BFS convention last year in Brighton. :)

Bloody ticket events.
On Neil Gaimen I just bought another bargain of a book called Fables from The Fountain, a book of short stories dedicated to Arthur C Clarke. Its got 19 stories, one by Neil, another by stephen Baxter and others and its signed by all 19 writers. Cost 20 euro but i still think its a limited run hardback so i think its a great bargain :D
