    Now that you mention it, I do now vaguely remember that I was able to get on a list for those getting a book from a live signing event that Bradbury did in conjunction with the event. I can’t recall, though, how many he signed of the 2500 run. 100? 200? Less? No idea, but good to have that reminder r.e. the add’l cache of my copy, so thanks!

    New . . . $75 . . . #humblebrag

    Apparently not all copies were signed - a couple on eBay with the same limitation page, but no signature. And the one that is signed isn't signed on the limitation page and is PRICEY.

    I'd really like to own a signed version but unsure of which version. (Ideally not a random "hey we found some bookplates so we stuck them into random things" that GP does . . .)
    I think you'd be pleased with this one, though its value has gone up significantly since I bought mine for $75 new / upon publication. It's a true limited-edition w/ nice endpapers, dj, true (and bound-in) sig/limitation sheet, illustrated, heavier stock paper (book has some heft), sewn binding (I think), etc.

    Long Beach Public Library Foundation / Angel City Press. This was specially published (though it's a handsome, well-made volume) for the "Long Beach Reads One Book" program. Pub'd 2005.

    Same. Arrived last night around 8pm...less than twelve hours after I ordered it. Gotta love the instant gratification of Amazon Prime...

    Although I have really enjoyed what I have read from Bradbury he is not an author I have ever sought out. I do have several books that include him and a few of his.

    I actually purchased Killer Come Back to Me today at Powell's.
