Great Find!!!

Post by Omphalos »

Normally I hate to brag, but.....

Just bought a signed, numbered Putman slipcased copy of GEoD, in great condition, for $25.

O_O

They have any more?

I've only been able to find GEoD starting at $115 for the standard hardcover signed by Frank.

I could not believe it. Ita one of those atores that specialize in PBs, but they are starting to branch out. I dont think I stole it from them, as they had a decent markup on it, but still, I almost (almost) feel guilty.

Nice one :)

You've triggered me to do a few searches for my next FH signature - they all seem rather expensive, but I did chance across this:
Immaculate, unread uncorrected proof of the final volume in the set of six 'Dune' novels penned by Frank Herbert and the second to be first published in the UK. It's a pristine copy in immaculate blue wrappers, a spine as tight as a lifelong lush during happy hour at a 24/7 free alcohol buffet and pages so clean that washing powder manufacturers are sending envy-fuelled fan letters AS NEW. Please note that this is an uncorrected proof and NOT a hardcover . AS NEW and SIGNED BY FRANK HERBERT. Complete with an oversized PROOF DUSTJACKET that is larger than the proof and which is, therefore, wrinkled in places (the dustjacket, not the proof).
:shock=:
And that, children, is how the little bunny rabbit got his fluffy white tail.

As a minimum, we must demand from SF that it be wiser than the world it speaks to.

      I admit the asking price is more than a little out there, but you're not curious to see what didn't make the MacKenzie Interview edit?
