Re: S.T. Joshi's new Cthulhu anthology will have a story from Tom

I saw my first copy of this anthology today.

A guy at a book signing I was involved with at Forbidden Planet this afternoon swooped along the line of authors and made directly for me with it.

"Aha!" I said "I knew this would happen."

So apparently there is now a single copy of the book in existence that also features my signature on the signing sheets.

Has anyone else received their contributors copies or sales copies? I imagine it would be very odd for copies to reach the U.K. ahead of the U.S.A.

Still haven't received my copy. I ordered fairly early, and live just a few states away from Centipede HQ, so there must be others still waiting on copies.

I think it might be a good idea for you to send a wee query to Jerad--you shou'd have gotten your copy by now.

It just arrived today, right after I posted that message. It's postmarked September 30, so it took nearly a month to go just over 1,000 miles.

Huzzah!

My contributor's copies arrived this morning. Now I have a dilemma. I don't know whether to break into the shrink-wrapped super-duper signed version in order to add my own missing scrawl to the signature sheets or not.

What a book ...

And what an honour to be in it!

I haven't checked but I don't think Neil Gaiman signed it either. There are one or two other omissions too, I think.

Those entrepreneurs who asked me squiggle in their copy at Forbidden Planet are probably hunting down the rest of the pack one-by-one to sell the unique copy.
