Well, so far so good so far as international shipping is concerned.

Orders are coming in, books are being weighed, packed, and shipped.



Assuming that there are no problems en route, or with customs on the other ends, maybe this will fly and we can make all our fans overseas happy. So keep those emails and orders coming.

Oh, and speaking of autographs, my friend Diana Gabaldon dropped by the JCC the other day, and signed a few more stacks of books for us. So we have replenished our supply of OUTLANDER titles (have you guys been watching the series? it's amazing). And Diana also signed some hardcovers of one of the anthologies she's in, SONGS OF LOVE AND DEATH. While the supply lasts, we can offer copies of that one with four signatures: the two editors (me and Gardner), plus Diana Gabaldon and Neil Gaiman.



Happy reading!

So happy you're doing this, thank you (definitely cheers an immigrant in the UK up ;)
Will definitely place an order once I've got a job and am not a poor student anymore.

Also wondered if some illustrated editions of Song and Ice and Fire will ever be released? The dream, of course, is seeing Alan Lee and John Howe have a go at it!

There have been illustrated editions of all the goods, from Meisha Merlin and Subterranean, featuring art from some of the world's greatest fantasy artists.

I love the anthologies (Rogues was my favorite) and had no idea this was being released! Looking forward to it. Do you have a chapter George or have you abstained for son of Kong?

World of ice and fire
Is the world of ice and fire signed? All the others are labeled as such, but not that one. I want to get it for my brother for his birthday. We are both huge fans, excited about the season finalize and sad that the season is over so fast.

All the books sold by the JCC are autographed.

I ordered a signed copy of AGOT, because of how valuable that book is to me.

But what should I order if I want the most signatures from various authors for the lowest price? One of the anthologies, I would guess.

If you tell me who Jon's mother is with your autograph, I'll pay double with a tip!!!

I've also been shopping around for a Valyrian Steal Yeti cooler/icechest. It's apparently light weight and holds ice for months. The problem is no one seems to have one in stock, so I'm guessing Valyria is the only place to find one. It's how Euron keeps his Shade of the Evening chilled on long voyages.

Oh my god, I LOVE Jacqueline Carey! I've reread her Kushiel Legacy so many times. Btw, even if you end up killing every single female off in the GoT series, thanks for making so many badass women. Can't wait to read your Women anthology.

Btw, I don't know if the last comment posted, but did you happen to sign the leather-bound editions through this link? Thanks! And thanks for offering these, totally made my day.

Sorry, should have read all of your comments. I see that they are. Thank you again for signing these! :)

Oh dear...
Me and my lame self didn't realize you were doing this and there it is, those damn leather-bound ones are sold out. How about this, I will send you an amazing GoT scarf (ok, well, it's pretty good at the very least!) and I will also give you lots of money (meaning $85 + shipping because to me that IS a lot of money, I don't even buy real crabmeat here people) and you can maybe add a few more signed boxed sets to the site! (Or to me, that's fine too.)

Pretty please.

With sugar on top.

I have nothing more to give.

I thought the whole point of having your book signed was to keep a memento of meeting an author you admire. Why do people buy the books pre-signed?
grrm
Jun. 25th, 2016 04:04 am (UTC)
Ah... because they are collectible? Rare?

And often a good investment as well. A signed first edition of an important book can be worth quite a bit over time. Even signed paperbacks can be valuable and sought after.

Of course, much depends on the book, and on the author.

I'm afraid I have an extremely low opinion of Diana Gabaldon and Outlander. But then, I'm Scottish and a historian…

International shipping
Hi George! I haven't commented in a while, but I just had to say thank you for supporting the US post office by mailing all those books in the priority mail boxes. I know international shipping can be a real cost burden. I only wish there was a way I could give you, my favorite author, a discount.

Cheers! And I hope the writing has been going well. Can't wait for Winds!

Re: International shipping
The USPS should bring back Sea Mail. The world still has plenty of ships. No every parcel needs to go priority.

Are all of the 4x signed Songs of Love and Death sold out? The only edition I see on the website says they're softcovers, whereas this post says Diana only signed hardcovers. And I can't find specific info on the softcover listing saying who signed those.

Thanks for making all of these books available for purchase!

No, plenty of signed hardcovers of SONGS OF LOVE AND DEATH still remain.

(Well, maybe 'plenty' overstates it. Try 'twenty.')
