Is that going to be the third book with Stephen Baxter? :D

The unsigned might be for a reason. I have a first print run of dork towers comic issue 15 signed by the author/artist of which there are less unsigned copies than there are signed! Basically the printer broke during the first print run so it needed up being a very limited run and they were being sold at dragoncon where kovalic was a guest!
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

So is it unlikely to get your books signed by Mr. Pratchett at conventions? Also des he only sign new books at books signings? Like Raising Steam will only get signed at his next book signing.
Is there many fake signatures online? Actually are far signatures that common online for any authors?
Geez look at me with all the questions and I'm only in the door.

He's just about physically unable to do signings now and just about the only way to get signed copies is by buying new books from PJSM Prints.

That's not to say that if you met him, he wouldn't sign something - it's just getting more unlikely. :|

Tony, your post makes me so sad.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
