    If you could pick any book from any genre to be a signed/limited, what would it be???

    And yes, for the signed part, the author has to be ALIVE!!!! LOL!!!

    So, which single title would you most want? Only one title.

    Me. I would want a signed limited of Lord Foul's Bane by Stephen R. Donaldson!!!!!

    That's a tough one. There was a thread like this at one time, but soley for the horror genre. Thinking outside of that...

    Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin. I'd love to see it illustrated as well, what with flying horses, thieves swinging from stars, and sleigh rides through impossible winters.

    I'm sticking with horror...and there might already be an S/L out there but I would love to see Swan Song by Mccammon.

    This is the first thing I thought of .... I know there is one out there but I'd like to own it. I wasn't blown away by the art, the time I saw it. I'd like one with art by Mike Perkins or a Bryan Hitch ... maybe Bernie Wrightson.

    One that doesn't exist to my knowledge and falls outside the realm of horror would be "A Deepness in the Sky" by Vernor Vinge with all kinds of art etc. Interestingly, I would absolutely not want to read it that way the first time (or tell others to) but on future reads, I would love to have a special edition.

    I would love to see a deluxe edition of "One Hundred Years of Solitude", my favorite book.

    After I had first discovered specialty presses and Dark Harvest, I was happy to find they were only 1/2 hour drive from me.....and then I found out they were out of business.

    Ben Franklin's personal journal, because then I would sell it and have enough money to buy many other books I can't afford.

    Thanks for the photo. After seeing the cover I think I've seen this before and (somehow) promptly forgot about it.
