    The Suntup news was mentioned as an offhand comment in a post by Paul on TDT.org. He has since teased that he's sourcing rusty chains for an upcoming edition of an unannounced book.

    My copy just arrived. I must say that it is a very nice book for a trade edition, and the signature makes it well worth the price even if the story is "meh". (I haven't read it yet, so I can't say.) I almost looks like he signed these with some kind of fountain pen.

    It is a beauty for a trade edition. And that signature looks like it belongs on the side of a vintage Thunderbird. I hope I like the story but this was a great purchase already.

    I ordered this book a loooong time ago. Everyone starting getting theirs so I tried to check on my order status and B&N said I had been inactive for too long and had to reset my password. I get in and check and it shows no orders for the past year. I thought well hell maybe I imagined the whole thing so I ordered another last night (even cheaper now and still signed copies left). Came home today and the first one was sitting there waiting on me. The shipping notification came in five minutes ago. LOL I guess I'll have a really special signed reading copy now.


    EDIT: and I do agree it is a lovely trade edition

    Yes, Harris has very nice, precise cursive handwriting. He did an inscription in my 1st HC of SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, and all his writing is like that.

    Got mine today. Looks largely the same. The H and I are a little different. My vote is real.
    Looks like mine has the longest line for H, goes all the way to S.

    If it helps, there is a paragraph in the new book that will make you think of Mr. Lector.

    Received my copies yesterday and one has a remarque. I'd have to believe these are authentic signatures. I'd post a picture but not sure how.

    I would love to see the Remarque. I do have not heard of anything other than a signature up to now.

    Yeah, I was really surprised when I saw it. It's a simple picture of an owl in the upper right corner above the signature and I guess you can call it a doodle or remarque. Whenever I figure out how to post the picture of it here I will.

    I still do not have my book. The estimated delivery remains last Saturday and when last scanned it was in Fife which is a good 140 miles from me.

    Mine was slated to arrive on Saturday. It did not.

    Now it appears that it should be delivered today.

    A rarity for sure I'm thinking. Mine arrived on Saturday.

    Still no book for me. Tracking appears to show my book taking a little vacation in Fife, maybe it is looking to buy a mobile home, before taking the trip south to see me. Tracking still shows an estimated delivery of last Saturday.

    I wonder how many of these he signed? I was at my local independent book store yesterday and they had 7 copies of this book. All had his signature
