I've just become the proud owner of a signed hardback copy of Unseen Academicals!!

It came with a thank you note from the woman at the publishers, for helping with the leaflets.

Sweeeeeet. :)

I have occasionally joked that I will have the worlds most valuable Discworld collection by dint of the fact that none of them are signed.

This is not for want of trying of course, it just so happened that I wasn't in town on every one of the occasions Mr P was coming for a signing. :roll: It was the same when the stage production of Guards! Gaurds! with Paul Darrow was touring.

The week it came to my home town, I was moving to Hull. Where it had just finished its run there.
