So I'm getting my books signed by Joe Haldeman - for those of you who don't know the name - Joe Haldeman is an SF author, best known for his novel Forever War, but he has written smeg loads of other stuff and is definately one of my favourites.
So getting my books signed - a large pile of my books, plus some copies of Forever War, one from Mikey, one from Nigel.
He opens the first book - Mikey's book - and reads the inscription on the front page "To mikey, one of my favourite SF books for you, happy midsummer, from renee" Smiles, says 'thats sweet, and signs the book, then he signs Nigel's copy. Then looks suprised at the large pile of my books, some of them quite obscure and out of print and hard to find. And starts signing them, He finds my copy of 'Mindbridge' And see's the inscription, "to Renee, found this, thought you might like it, from Mikey" - Smiles - looks up at megan and asks "Who's Mikey?" Megan responds "A friend of Renee's", He then asks "Who's Nigel?", Megan responds with "Renee's boy". He smiles a evil grin, and asks "Does Nigel know about Mikey?"
Megan laughs at this point.
I have all my books signed by Joe Haldeman - one of them twice - because it was bookplated when i got it, and I have a new book - a collection of Haldeman short stories!
I am happy, and I have a funny ancedoct! Current Mood: amused
