  • My copy of mathematical tourist is signed by the author Ivars Peterson.
  • None, but I'd happily let JK Rowlings drop her ink down on my HP books. :) Or if Walt Whitman wanted to rise from the dead for me?!
  • I have a copy of Triskell Tales signed by Charles DeLint, and by his wife who did the artwork.

  • The only autographed book I have is *Harvey Penick's Little Red Book: Lessons and Teachings from a Lifetime in Golf*
  • I have an autographed copy of "Out of the Shadows-Jenna's Secret" written by Chrissy Siggee. (I got a freebie for designing the cover for her.) I also had an autographed copy of "Never Cease" by Sue Dent, but recently lost it in a fire. :(

  • Oops, forgot second part of question--Mary Stewart; the Merlin series.
  • At least 10. Two were written by a friend. One was written by Andy Robustelli who played football for the New York Giants in the 1950's and who currently owns a few businesses in COnnecticut. I'm not sure of the others, one day I'll keep them in together in my bookcase.

  • "Ich war Hitlerjunge Salomon"-Solomon Perel, "The Satanic Verse", and "Midnight's Children" - Ahmed Salman Rushdie, "Ragtime" - E.L. Doctorow, "The Devil in the White City", and "Thunderstruck" - Erik Larson, "Beowulf" - signed translation by Seamus Heaney, "The Road to Mars" - Eric Idle, "High Society" - Ben Elton, "The Ordeal of Woodrow Wilson" - Herbert Hoover, "Sieze the Moment" - Richard M Nixon, "A Time to Heal" - Gerald R Ford, "Keeping Faith" - Jimmy Carter, "An American Life" - Ronald Reagan, "A Fresh Start for America" - George W Bush (compiled policy addresses), "Goldwater" - Barry M Goldwater, "Winning the Future" - Newt Gingrich "The Downing Street Years" - Lady Margaret Thatcher, John Major-The Autobiography" - John Major "Almost a Revolution" - Shen Tong I have literally hundreds on my wish list that I would love to have signed but due to the normal human life span, they are impossible. Many were never put in book form during the author's life. Most of my signed books are by politicians because they are more accessible than the average author. I would love to have Woodrow Wilson's "History of the American People" signed", as well as "Why England Slept" John F Kennedy, and of course any books written by Winston Churchill would be much prized. Splendid question!
