    Okay, moderators - delete this if it's OTT!

    Hey, if you now anyone who is interested, or are interested yourself, I'll be at Forbidden Planet in London to do a stock signing (for Sable Keech HB and Brassman PB), on Saturday 18th Feb from 1-2pm. this isn't a sit-down job, but if anyone wants a copy signed to them, and are in the vicinity, come in and ask the staff. I'll be there from about 12.30 (though mostly not visible, being ensconced in some stock room surrounded by heaps of books).

    Thank you for the news, Neal.

    And just to add to that, SFFWorld hopes to be sorting something out with Neal around that time - once he emerges from his pile of books!

    Just to re-iterate: this is not a 'signing'. I'm going to Forbidden Planet to sign stock and pre-orders. I won't be sitting out in the open to receive my clamouring fans (ho ho). Just if you are a collector -- here's an opportunity...

    Oops ... Hobbit, some developments on that front. It seems it is now a genuine sat at a table signing now. With posters and stuff too...

    Hey Neal! I live in NYC so unfortunately I won't be able to make it this time. But I wanted to welcome you here anyway, so Welcome to SFFworld.

    Thanks for the welcome, Gary. Maybe when I finally get to go to New York I'll look you up ... maybe carrying a signed copy of The Voyage of the Sable Keech and demanding you pay me for it!

    Anyway, the signing is still on, but I give fair warning to anyone who turns up that I may look a little red-eyed, since there's a launch party a couple of days beforehand and I have now reached the age of the two-day hangover.

    Does that mean that you're at the age (or past the age?) of the two day party, though? :D

    Working on the principle: avoid hangovers, stay drunk? I fear I have passed that watershed where the pleasurable effects of alcohol are outweighed by their aftereffects, though I'm a very slow learner and that doesn't stop me.

    Looking for a thread on which to say - hi Neal! And to make my excuses on the book signing, which are ironclad, since I'm currently sweltering in Melbourne. (Yes, folks, it's 38 degrees C here, and I don't like it). I wouldn't mind being in London this minute...

    Man, Neal, you need to get over to the States. Heck, I'd even fly out to NYC to hang out with Gary if you were coming to town...

    Alison, okay I'll accept that excuse. Surprisingly nice and bright here in England today, but you don't go out without a woolly on.

    Mathain, one day, one day. It's definitely on the 'to visit' list.

    I have a question, are the posters available anywhere else? Living in California it would have been a bit to far to get to London...;)

    Skaidon (excellent name) there's a very limited number of posters about I'm afraid -- normally printed up by Macmillan when there's any sort of event.

    Thats a shame, I would have loved one. I love the previous artwork on your books, especially The Skinner. Keep up the great work, I eagerly await your latest release, of which Im in the process of ordering :)

    Neal, will you be doing any other signings for Hilldiggers or is it just this London one?

    I may be doing one at Waterstones at Lakeside in August, though that's not confirmed yet. The problem is the date clashes with something else.

    Waterstones Lakeside.

    OK, I’ll be doing another signing at 6pm Thursday 9th of August at Waterstones in Lakeside Thurrock, so if you’re in the area, come and buy some books, say hello, get books you’ve already bought signed! See you there.
