    Hate to bug...but since last update was over six months ago assume we are still just waiting on signed sheets? Just a thought...but since it takes two years to get signatures from him, maybe send part 3 signature sheets now as well? Who knows he might sign them all

    That was a smart idea to send both sig sheets at once!

    That is some good news. While it may not give us any idea on this one right now at least we know when it is done you can move directly into part 3. Great minds!!!

    Unless Guillermo signs the sheets, there isn't much else we can do. Everything else is ready for the printer.

    Thanks Brian! I'm sure you're as eager to get the sig sheets back as we are!

    Same as always, unfortunately. His manager says his schedule has been crazy, but he will sign the signature sheets as soon as possible. I will shout the news to the rooftops the day the sheets arrive back.

    I'm telling you, you need to fly someone out there to sit outside his house until they're done. Side note, my bags are packed.

    I find walking around naked with a shotgun usually speeds things up a bit, just a suggestion

    I can't claim to know what it's like to have the schedule of somebody like DelToro (or Gillian Flynn--had to throw that in there), but, at least in my head, it doesn't seem like it would be that difficult or time consuming to write your name on a piece of paper a bunch of times. Or is there something special involved that I'm missing?

    You are absolutely missing the true essence of signing...it's not just putting your name down on a piece of paper, it's a state of being, a mindset that's so incredibly hard to put yourself into it can take years to find that perfect moment. And to sign only a certain number of sheets each day? Impossible! One must ensure that all sheets are signed in one sitting or else all sheets previously signed become worthless. The reader absolutely can tell if all sheets were not signed on the same day.

    Trust me, you would care if you received this book and noticed that your signature sheet was not signed on the exact same day in the same sitting as all other signature sheets. Chances are it would be so repulsive you wouldn't even be able to even look at the page without sobbing uncontrollably.

    To reiterate, signing cannot be forced, with instances of the best signers taking more than 100 years to truly sign their name.

    All kidding aside, I do hope Del Toro signs these soon! I can't wait to receive this...The Strain is one of the most impressive books on my shelf and I'm looking forward to paying for the third part!

    Thanks for putting these great books together Brian, they are always worth the wait.

    Brian, have you guys ever had to scrap a book because the author never signed the sheets?

    No, not yet, knock on wood! We did have one book where the author had the sheets before the mass market paperback was published and we didn't get them back until several years after that edition had gone out of print, though. Luckily, our edition of that book wasn't announced yet, so our edition just ended up being a nice reprint edition that no one knew was coming. For the most part, with a few exceptions where we HAVE to announce based on someone else's schedule (usually a big time author's New York agent/publisher), we try not to announce books until the signature sheets are signed unless we've worked with the author before and know from experience how super reliable he or she is...
