  1. John Picacio just tweeted: London Friends: Who wants to meet in King's Cross / St. Pancras for a Loteria / ASoIaF meetup Wed. / 7p-9p? DM me.
  2. Yeah. They are quite similar, although I'm sure GoBadChicken would know. Parris didn't know about them at the time I met up with her (Dec 2013) either.
  3. Another 'Rare' Game of Thrones related item is the US Bantam ARC that came with the silver foil cover and a sticker on it. The ARCs were originally handed out with the Youll cover, and when the silver ones arrived, they added the stickers to them and stopped handing out the ARCs with Youll covers. The silver jacket is the one that was used on the hardback, so it's bigger than the ARC and the top and/or bottom are usually a bit dinged due to the size difference. I've seen people trying to sell an ARC (without the Youll cover) with a beaten up silver jacket and no sticker as though it came that way. Anyone know if there were actually any handed out like that without the sticker?
  4. On the Adopt-a-Book program at Duke, one of the books from the collection is a 1st/1st UK Game of Thrones inscribed to Charles N. Brown. There are 2 other books in that adoption - $150 USD to help pay for clamshell boxes for them. https://library.duke.edu/about/adopt-book-program . Inscribed copies are rarer than non-inscribed, however not sure of the affect on price. Also on the Adopt-a-Book program is a set of 3, that includes 2 Stephen King titles - Salem's Lot and The Shining. Not sure if the Salem's Lot has one of the $8.95 jackets or not.
  5. There are more than the 7 Youll found copies. Not many - apparently GRRM has a few (in double digit quantity - no mention of condition), The Youll ones are mint (signed by Stephen and Jamie Youll) and are unfolded except one of mine. GoBadChicken (ebay seller) told me that they had one years ago but sold it, and Elio (Ran) told me he hadn't seen one for a long time when I was getting one of mine signed at Worldcon in Finland. This one at Duke looks to be from the Archives of Charles Brown (founder of Locus Magazine and the Locus Awards) that was purchased by Duke. The cover is pictured in this article about the collection. Cool that it's on display! It looks to have a hard fold on the side. https://blogs.library.duke.edu/blog/2019/04/30/locus-collection-tracks-the-stars-and-universe-of-sci-fi/
  6. It was the 15th anniversary of Harper Voyager not "A Game of Thrones". They released other books with the purple coloured boards around the same time. https://voyageronline.wordpress.com/2010/08/30/hip-hip-hooray-–-hardbacks-for-voyager’s-birthday/ I remember a video that was on the Harper Voyager site at one point. I believe there were some other or different books in the video as well. The copyright statement of this version does have Robin Hobb and 1995 as the copyright date, but it's just a production typo. 1995 is the year that the Robin Hobb book in this group of 15th Anniversary books was originally printed (copy/paste error or oversight). I think that it being the 'Original' copyright page, is a bit off the mark for that reason. The UK Voyager Classics version of Fahrenheit 451 (printed in 2013) copyright page has copyright statement with GRRM's name on it, and there is another book in the Voyager Classics series that also has the wrong copyright statement. I think these are quite common errors and don't add any value. The 15th Anniversary books aren't as common on ebay for sure, but I know a few people who have one. I did spend some time looking for all of them as I did want a full set, but never found them. I have seen only 1 other 15th Anniversary book on ebay - the Feist one.
  7. 5 - Everything seemed too rushed and the teleportation of the raven was bad. I would have had them still 'attempt' to send a raven - good idea, but that should have taken too long to help them as it turned out. Bran would probably sense something was up and he could have communicated somehow (flock of crows for example) to Daenerys that something was wrong pretty quickly and the time-travelling ravens wouldn't have been necessary.
  8. :P Yeah, that's right.. any lettered Meisha Merlin.. If you could swing the 'G' 'RR' or 'M' copies, that would be swell.. :dunce:
  9. I'm looking for any Lettered MM Agot.

    I'm selling a Game of Thrones cover proof. I don't think you can see it on ebay in the U.S. even though I am selling it to the U.S. (I've not sold 10 items on ebay so it doesn't show there) Here is a link. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Very-Rare-Game-of-Thrones-Jacket-Proof-George-RR-Martin-/271632837751?pt=Antiquarian_Books_UK&hash=item3f3e942c77 Feel free to make an offer here or on ebay.

    I thought they did Storm as well, but now I'm not sure if I'm remembering correctly. You can still get them in bookstores in Finland, ordering online is sometimes possible, but I found them in most bookshops when I was there. I will be going back in September. Thanks for the close-up shots!

    Very cool, agot-library, I can't tell if you have the Finnish illustrated ones, but a very nice collection!
