    Ron I’m shocked that there was something I could point out to you! I think this signature is printed on the page. Perhaps they threw it in as a way for Crouch to sign off on the series? I just wish they would have stated something about it on the copyright page or something.

    I highly doubt that his signature will be printed or auto pen in the Gauntlet editions. I wouldn’t expect anything less than an authentic signature.

    He signed his Little Book from Borderlands.

    Take a magnifying glass (or I'm sure there is an app) and see if there are any breaks in the ink. I'm not entirely sure but I don't think an autopen leaves any breaks. Maybe someone could correct or confirm this?

    Classic Autopen:

    Computer generated autopen.

    If it were autopen I think you would see the indentations.

    Check out the reverse of the signed page. Typically you can see the indent in the paper where the author pressed down to sign, especially with the lesser quality of paper in trade editions.

    Crouch is likely on Twitter. Anybody want to ask him?

    ​It'd certainly be quite a bummer if he ends up using an autopen on the Gauntlet Pines...

    It certainly seems to be identical.

    Is your signed copy identical to Jeff's two copies?

    Wow, I see what you mean. If those aren’t autopen, he has a superhuman ability for consistentcy…I don’t see any variation whatsoever. No idea what the story is behind that, but I’d also be curious to know… it’s pretty odd to see an autopen session for a midlist author and a non-Covid-era pub date.

    hahahahaha Maybe this is the same signed book from a parallel universe that somehow slipped into ours so now there are two

    I haven’t heard of anything like that, though I suppose anything is possible. But I can’t imagine it would be economical for the publisher to bind in a (real) signature page in a mass-market tpb, and a facsimile signature without context seems unlikely as well. My suspicion is that it’s just a coincidence, and maybe there are subtle differences in your two that just aren’t readily apparent…?
    Here are the digs side by side. I can’t find any variation.

I have two copies of the trade edition and the signatures are identical. Even down to where they are on the page. I really don’t think it’s possible that they are really signed but I’m not finding anything online about a facsimile signature.
