        Yep that's based off of stamping used on the lettered edition. If this one goes well I think the plan will be to do them for at least all the Doubleday stuff, and maybe more. I'm actually really looking forward to the ones for Salem and Shining.

          Another DAYS OF THE DEAD conference question. I've never been to an entertainment conference before. Not one where celebrities set up tables and signed autographs and such. So I have no idea what to expect. What I want to know from those who have gone to things like this is--do they charge for autographs? I thought that if I brought something to sign and waited in line, I could get whoever to sign whatever for free. Now I'm realizing how naive that must be. Can anyone tell me how it goes down?

            I'm pretty sure it all depends on the event. I've been to ones that it's all free, ones were you get "signing session tickets" to portion / spread the line waiting out, and to ones where they cost money.

              Ive seen it go every which way.

              At ECCC this year, almost everyone signed everything for free with the exception of Jae Lee who charged either $5 or $10 per item, but didnt charge me since I bought a print. The artists that signed a ton of stuff were aware that if a line formed, Id get out and give someone else a chance. Chris Claremont charged $10 a sig and seemed to have no limit. Some people had BOXES of stuff he was signing. I never got anything signed.

              Katie has gone to a few MLP cons and autographs always cost and theyd sign whatever as long as you had a ticket per.

              And quite often there was a time limit - autographs between 1-3pm sorta thing.

                Thanks for the insights, guys. I guess I'll just have to see how this goes. All the cenobites will be there (except Doug Bradley!) and I have a stack of books I was going to have them sign. But if I have to pay then I might have to rethink how much I bring. I don't want to lug a stack of books around. I'm going to reach out to the event organizers. But it helps to know what others have experienced. Thanks!

                  Never before have I hated winter so much as I did yesterday. It took me 8 hours to make what's typically a 1 hour drive home from the office. I ended up taking today off, just because I couldn't look at the inside of my car anymore.

                    I was talking to my manager who is located in PA, he mentioned how bad it was. He said his daughter has a four mile drive and it took her two hours. I can't imagine an eight hour drive home, that's just nuts.

                      My worst commute to work was 4 hours but I did have an 8 hour commute home once. Fortunately I am able to work from home when needed.

Enjoy your feast, families, football, long walks and leaf raking!! And to our Canadian friends, good on you for getting an early start!

                          Right back at you. Happy Turkey Day everyone. Try to enjoy it even if you are forced to endure another year of cornbread dressing and oyster gravy...

                            Happy thanksgiving, everyone!

                            On a side note, what in god’s name is “oyster gravy”?

                              Also: What's with Joe Lansdale's signature? I've never seen two exactly alike.

                                I would say it's because he signs so much stuff so often, but Gaiman's signature is much more consistent and he signs more things, faster.

                                Plus there's the added bonus of not having to worry about eBay purchases having real signatures or not - because who truly knows.
