A super book in every way and rapidly gaining world-wide attention. 'Stay back, human, you do not know what you are dealing with...' A twelve year old criminal mastermind in a stunning and witty debut adventure. Don't miss out on what I am certain will become a very collectable book! Now into many reprints...

Signed by both the author and Muhammad Ali on a ladi in bookplate on the half title. A real collector's item, a pictorial story of the career of probably the finest boxer the world has ever seen and certainy the most entertaining! £150.00
IAN RANKIN - Let It bleed a fine copy £350.00
GEORGE R.R. MARTIN'S A Game Of Thrones book 1 of A Song Of Ice And Fire. A FIRST EDITION of a hardcover copy, a near FINE book in a FINE dustjacket. Book 1 in A Song Of Ice And Fire...generally accepted as the world first edition with a very small printing making it a very collectable item. The page edges are very slightly blushed with colour with one tiny bump to the bottom edge. The book has been read several times I would guess giving a slight looseness to the boards - it is however an excellent copy of an extremely rare book and is offered at a net price. £400.00.

SPECIAL...Fforde, Jasper: LOST IN A GOOD BOOK/Hodder & Stoughton. The year long wait is now over for the sequel to the super debut novel The Eyre Affair - it was well worth the wait and Mr Fforde does not let you down. Thursday Next is back on the case...There are some giveaway postcards but not as many as with the first book (about one in every three or four sported a giveaway). One bone on contention is the signature and Mr Fforde has made it quite clear on his great web site that there are several versions and ALL are his! One customer doubted the signature on a book I sent him so I referred him to the site and, since then, silence...But it all comes down to trust in the end between the bookseller and the customer. Jasper kindly signed my books for me over coffee and ginger beer on a sunny morning in a little bistro in Hay On Wye and he did a few Mk 1s as well as the new one and if that confuses I am sorry! Guaranteed, 100 percent, dyed in the wool, original genuine Signed copies complete with upgrade sticker and leaflet! (two only) £50.00 each.
