    Which reminds me... Here are a few issues of Grave Tales that Joe Hill signed for me, which was pretty mighty cool:

    I also managed to get Peter Crowther's signature too. He seemed surprised to see the comic, albeit in a good way!

    I love the scaly-textured cover on the UK trade paperback of Horns:

    The UK trade hardcover of NOS2R2 loses out to the US's NOS4A2, IMHO, but is much improved with a signature and a doodle on the inside:

    And I suppose we can't really talk Joe Hill without mentioning this:


    Mr Mercedes by Stephen King (UK Hardcover) by lucian.poll, on Flickr

    I don't know why, but I really like the cover to this book. Maybe it's the cool glossy rain effect when you hold it up to the light...

    Thanks, Theli! I should get my WFC 2013 haul out of my system just in time to attend this year's shindig in Washington. That's right, folks, Mr Poll is heading Stateside!

    I haven't quite figured what Washington offers gawping tourists in early November, but Google Maps proudly informs me there's a Burger King in the middle of The Pentagon, so obviously I'll have to check that out.

    Hi Martin! I think my copy may be an early-bird as I've got an ad running inside.

    Any suggestions you have are most welcome. I'll be staying at the same hotel in which WFC is taking place, which is the Hyatt Regency Crystal City near Ronald Reagan Airport - so not-quite-Washington-but-pretty-close. I'll be there a few days either side of the event to do a wee bit exploring.

    I found a few bars in DC that promise a good old-fashioned pub quiz, which amuses me no end. Yes, I'll have travelled thousands of miles to take part in the very thing I need only cross the road for (literally), but for once I'll be able to use the team name "Norfolk n' good" and not have everyone in the place groan and have me thrown out.

    I am afraid I can be of no help then as I am in the other Washington.

    Nice additions. Love the UK edition of Mister Mercedes. Better then the U.S. cover.

    It's like the publishers knew something about our climate!
