I almost exclusively by e-books these days. The only time I don’t is when: (a) the book is by a friend and I want a signed copy; (b) the book is by a writer I admire and I want a signed copy. I went a little overboard (for me) at the Nebula Weekend. Here’s what I picked up:
The list includes:
- Movement by Nancy Fulda, which she signed for me.
- Going Intersteller edited by Les Johnson and Jack McDevitt.
- A Talent for War by Jack McDevitt, which he signed for me.
- Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded by John Scalzi, which he signed for me.
- Corrupting Dr. Nice by John Kessel, which he signed for me.
- Lifeboard Earth by Stanley Schmidt, which he signed for me.
- Embassytown by China Miéville.
- Blackout and All Clear by Connie Willis, which she signed for me.
Missing from the picture, because it’s already up in the Little Man’s room, is Alpha Oops! by Alethea Kontis, which she signed rather artfully for both the Little Man and the Little Miss.
I already had digital versions of Movement, Embassytown, Blackout and All Clear. But now I have some signed copies, which is very, very cool.
