    ...and a video of the Occult Edition (not the greatest book video, but provides a deep dive if you need that):

    I have a special fondness for The Ocean at the End of the Lane because Neil named a character in the book after me.

    And now there will be a newly illustrated edition of this book. Here is a link to the forthcoming signed, slipcased, limited edition at Waterstones:

    Harper Collins will be publishing an unsigned edition which is shown on their website plus Amazon etc. But so far, no word on a signed limited edition. They didnít do it for the Good Omens Script Book either and released only a trade paperback.

    Oh, I had won a charity auction where the prize was getting a character in Neil's next novel named after me. And then time passed and he wasn't writing a novel. I had dinner with him one evening, together with my wife and kids, and he mentioned working on a short story that had become longer than planned and wasn't quite a novel but might become one. I reminded him about the auction thing.

    Neil said, "right, that's you!" and pulled out his notebook and made a notation in it. He then asked me to print my name clearly in it.

    "How would you like to be a South African diamond miner who commits suicide?"

    "Sounds good to me."

    My wife suggested that the character should have as gruesome a death as possible.

    Later Neil sent me a pdf of the draft manuscript, and I'd been changed from the diamond miner to a recalled childhood companion of the narrator. No suicide, no gruesome death, just an innocent childhood buddy.

    My wife said I got off easy.

    Because you need another S/L of Ocean. But it's pretty nice and cheap:

    Edit: I just realized this is the same edition that Waterstone's had a while back. So here is a new link in case you missed it.

    So I have been looking for a s/l of Angels and Visitations for years, but every one was priced way too high for my taste. I finally found one on eBay for around $200, so I went ahead and purchased it. Weird thing is that it is a lettered edition:



    I didn't even know a lettered edition existed. Does anyone have any other details on this, like the original purchase price?

    Thanks

    Yes, Congrats on HH's AG! The Cornerstone of any respectable NG collection (although I think HH's Anansi Boys is even more beautifully done). Can't believe these things are still readily available- and for a very reasonable price!

    I would agree on AB - I am guessing that it is just not as popular a book? But very well done - I have a copy with an awesome spider Remarque and I love that one. Plus there is a glassine like paper with an embossed web - that is just loose in the book - I had it in one copy but not the other - I imagine these were easily lost - I think they were placed over the signature page

    No, but I knew that when I purchased it. I have seen a few available at reasonable prices though, so thats my next purchase!

    I thought only the lettered editions were 'matched' though and the reader copies for the numbered edition were not numbered themselves?

    The readers copies were actually numbered - I have #95 & #47 I think its the first actual page - just a limitation number - nothing else

    Although I can't speak to this particular book, a number of publishers (Arion Press, for example) use letters to denote the in-house copies reserved for authors/contributors/etc. If it's functionally identical to the "numbered" version, that's my guess as to what's happening here.
    Please help me find:

    I didn't even know a lettered edition existed. Does anyone have any other details on this, like the original purchase price?

    Thanks
    Although I can't speak to this particular book, a number of publishers (Arion Press, for example) use letters to denote the in-house copies reserved for authors/contributors/etc. If it's functionally identical to the "numbered" version, that's my guess as to what's happening here.
    Iím sure itís something like that. Lettered or numbered, Iím happy to finally have a copy.
