Misprinted Swastika

Postby e_taylor » Mon Nov 13, 2006 6:58 pm

Question for you Slade:

You said there were about 200 of the misprints that got out before the recall.. do you know approximately how many of those you have signed?

Certainly over 100. I'd say most of them. The books were rushed out to Vancouver for an early signing, and it wasn't until Starra's post on this Board that we knew anything was wrong.

That's when Penguin gathered them in...but, of course, collectors were begging bookstores with stock to be returned to slip them one under the table.

I've got one...
Unsigned and all. I hard it preordered right away, so when it released there was copy for me here in tiny little Abbotsford.

However, I heard nothing of recall, and only noticed the misprinting when I came upon it in the book.
An unsuspecting collectors item ^^

Slade,
That would be amazing! I will be on avid alert for your next appearances in the Fraser Valley/Lower mainland.

Speaking of that, I have a few left that need a signing - is there a limit at the convention signings as to how many books you'll do? [/i]

E. Taylor,

The rule has always been, If you buy a Slade novel, you have a RIGHT to have it signed.

Buy a thousand copies and you get a thousand signatures.

The '07 Horror Convention..... I checked out their site and I'm confused... do you have to be a member to attend?

You purchase a "membership" to attend -- which is just a fancy way of saying you pay a registration fee. There is no such thing as a pre-existing membership.

Can you pay a cover at the door? or do you have to register in advance?

According to the website....

Attending Membership:
Until March 1, 2007 $120 US $137 CDN £67 UK
At the door (full weekend) $150 US $170 CDN N/A
Daily rates TBA TBA N/A

I assume that daily "memberships" will be available at the door. One of the Sladists may have done this in NYC (Kanuck?)...

some day Slade I hope to be in attendence of one of your signings. But now that i am embarking on an excursion to Seoul, Korea to teach for a year and my novels are in storage in Edmonton I must say that such a day will have to wait again.

Be safe!

Well, Cawdorgraves, you'll have a ball and a half too.!

And I too have the 'cock-up issue' :lol: :lol: of THAT book and himself signed it . :shock:

The thing I'd like to know, is, what kind of history teacher did Jay have, and were they anything like the boring old farts like I had back home,? and made history so bloody mind numbing!, because Jay'd make a bloody great history teacher.!

I just got back from the Bloody Words convention in Toronto. As a matter of interest for those of you who bought the misprinted first edition of SWASTIKA before it was pulled and pulped, an UNSIGNED copy is now going for $300.

You know what they say about the early bird...
