Let's reserve this thread for any non-musician signed books and other items, at least until a dedicated forum exits for those posts.

Ooh, nice! Cheers.

Looks like Foyles have it too. I would post the link but the site has just gone down for me.

Nice - I'm in. Looks like it will be a fun read!

Donald passed away today. So sad. I don't want to be that guy, but I assume these are going to be cancelled now.

Really interesting to know if tip ins usually get done well in advance, or right before the publishing. Hopefully we luck out and still get them

makes me wonder if the book itself was even finished. it was a memoir and from what I read they say he was sick for a while. I guess we will find out when all these places either don't refund or start refunding.

I would expect that the book itself was done if cover art and distribution date was already locked in. The only question is whether he signed these. Given that we knew these were up for pre-order several months ago, it's a distinct possibility.

This could be the rare case where a book is announced just before the author died, released after he died, and may have had the last known signatures he completed. If so, it could be an instant collector's item.

I've always been a fun, and always wanted to meet him, but never really got the chance. I have met Kiefer, however, and he is just as interesting as you would think.

Vintage Donald:

That's such a weird film. I saw it only for the first time a couple of years ago and I'm still getting flashbacks - lol.

The cab driver character in the remake was a cameo for Don Seigel, who directed the original version. Right after the opening credits the priest on the swing where school children pick pods unknowingly is none other than Robert Duvall. The remake pays homage to the original in many ways - the most memorable being Kevin McCarthy still running around in traffic since 1956 screaming "You're next! They're here!"

PS - It can be difficult to say which film is more successful. One thing I noticed - in the 1956 version nearly everything is solved with a drink and/or cigarette - even unfinished bodies without fingerprints on billiard tables!
