I've always had everything that TP ever laid pen to but only in paperback. I bought Jingo! as a hardback and have never looked back since. Problem is that it's costing me a fortune to work my way backwards replacing the PB's with HB's. If you are looking for a perticular PB let me know and I( will mail to you free of charge. If you have HB's prior to Jingo! I will pay a good price for them. lmk

Right. I'm finally sorting out the book shelf and with mine and the missuses book collections combining along with my tendancy to buy multiple issues i will have a few books to offer up as promised in the next week.
I look for nought in exchange but for the books to recieve a good home.
There will be a few terrys along with other books.
Might evenm throw in a collectable or two :D

It's an American proof of Thud! - I don't think that counts. If it did then Sharlene would have a load of proofs as she used to get them sent to her when she had the bookstore.

Yes, I don't think the American ones are so much proofs as an advance copy for bookstores and reviwers to read and be able to comment on.
