Thanks.

Sorry for being mysterious about it, but it's a rather unique prize, and my real name is on record for having won it, so I can't divulge exactly what it is. :shhh:

Seems fair enough.
Just had an email form an author saying there's a signed book in the post for me because I reviewed his book. :D :D

I have a few signed cd's lying around, most of them signed after by the artists after gigs, or during interviews (I have worked for a large Dutch rock/metal e-zine for ten years, during which I got to interview a number of artists face to face).

My signed Terry Pratchett stuff (only The Long Earth and the Going Postal Blu-ray) were bought through Paul Kidby's site. I'd prefer to have things signed "live", but you don't get many chances for that here in the Netherlands, where there just aren't many book signings by the authors I like.
