When you get your card, check out abebooks.com before buying anything on ebay. (On ebay some guy is trying to sell a COM signed facsimile for $325 when they cost only 40 pounds at PJSN). Abebooks have some amazing TP bits and bobs AND some things are not too expensive.

For example, I bought Sourcery paperback signed to Mike (ie, me), a Reaperman paperback signed to Mike saying "Boo" and a Jingo HB 1/1 signed with a handwritten letter from Colin Smith (publisher) saying it was a signed copy. Total cost for all three = 45 pounds plus postage.

Sorry Parkstee, I misread your original post. For some reason I thought you said the Truth.

Anyway, I have never and probably will never meet Sir TP. No matter what I buy, pales into insignificance compared to the fact that you have met him and I haven't.

I have some poster sized pictures of some of the covers by Paul Kidby. Pyramids is one of them, and the Luggage is another.

I have no signed copies but I will order one for me on the site soon, when my balance allows me to. I wish I had a glooper!
