I have three signed Pratchetts (I think), and my copy of Whit signed by Ian Banks. He looked so pleased that the book had clearly been read a number of times (and more since).

i have a ton of signed books, some I got signed directly and others I bought when books were being released. I don't tend to buy second hand signed books as its a tad dodgy in a lot of respects but I will preorder copies to be signed on release. In this way they tend to cost the cover price and gain value rather than spending a small fortune.

Hopefully getting a signed copy of Soul Music for my birthday. Also have 'Breathers' by SG Browne.

Then there's a whole range of Vancouver Whitecaps merch that I've gotten signed haha. The sport is relatively small here so it's quite easy to meet the lads after the matches as they walk off the pitch

I have two books that Pterry signed the one time I saw him in person in Boston.

But for me what I treasure more are the emails from him I've saved after we had a little literary 'conversation' as a follow up from an alt.pratchett group discussion years ago.

Well, seeing as this thread's been revived, I might as well add something.

As I mentioned in another thread, I won a prize a couple of months back, and I got it recently. What it is exactly, I'm not saying, for privacy reasons. What I will say is that it is signed by a lot of people...

Very mysterious. I have a few short story books signed by all the contributors with some big names which are great.
