Post subject:  Autographs

The subject has been in at least two different threads, so I'm going to start this one to collect the information.

I seem to have sold or otherwise committed all six "extra" copies I purchased for the purpose of autographing/inscribing and mailing out, and I think I've got everybody who asked for that special service -- Nick, Peter, and, Ed, I think you haven't actually asked for it yet, but if you do, no problem, I can cover it.

Since I actually converted the five author copies that had arrived to this purpose, I'll have to wait till the next batch arrives (should be imminent) to do actual mailing.

Several people have expressed a desire for a paste-in of some kind, so it's time for a show of hands -- who would like theirs in the form of a 3x4 self-adhesive label with signature and possibly an inscription? These are essentially mailing labels from Staples so a very standard size/shape.

Who would like some other format?

Discussion welcomed here but the actual "order" should be e-mailed to me, and the easiest way is bill@whpattersonjr.com. Be sure to include your mailing address and any other information about it.

Well, if you're willing to spend the time mailing, I'm happy to mail my copy to you....which means buying a second copy, so I can read it in the mean time. I'm sure you're upset about that! :)

I'll be taking advantage of your offer to get a signature plate. I suggest that you ask people to send you an SASE and you can handle them on a flow basis. TANSTAAFL. ;)

Good idea. The arrival of the SASE triggers the making of the autograph label. I've been trying to handle requests by email, which is always chancy.

It may or may not become burdensome at some point and that would tend to put a cap on it. Good thought.

I'm going to pick mine up from you in person in November, so you have time to get another batch in before then.

I recommend having at least a couple of dozen copies in personal inventory at any one time. It is of course a deductible expense.

It may also be necessary!

Though, ofcourse, one would wistfully prefer that they were in constant use . . .

Let's see as of 8/18/10 I've got half a dozen copies at home and half a dozen more to be picked up at the mailing service.

I'll be interested in comments (not on this thread) as the family types read through it. After "and now I've got to sleep for ten hours).

I suppose it's okay to put mailing address here: 357 S. Fairfax Ave. #226, Los Angeles, CA 90036. This is also the mailing address of the Heinlein Journal
