    Default Michael Whelan, Artist

    I just wanted to announce that Michael Whelan's new and improved web site has finally been launched. You can find it here:

    http://www.michaelwhelan.com

    This has been a work-in-progress for well more than a year, but I think the wait has been worth it. You judge for yourself! I am proud to say that I had a hand late in the process in assisting Audrey and Michael in getting it ready.

    That is a nice site. The pictures load quickly. I saw the announcement about the LSOE, but no pics.
    Thanks Wiz.

    Probably because it's one of only 99 prints. It's on canvas, and signed.
    It's actually far less than the original, which I'm only guessing would be 10K+.

    The website looks great!

    It should definitely go in the new Links directory.

    Audrey worked long and long on getting everything just right for the site. It would make her feel good to get some feedback from some of you on how much you like the new site!

    Are you implying that Michael and Audrey are not members of TDT.com?

    I like the site as well. Here's a "collectors" question:

    Assume that I inquire about the possibility of Michael inscribing my 2nd Edition Gunslinger. Aside from personal value, would it increase or decrease the street value of the book??? I would obviously never sell it, but one day, when I'm gone.....blah, blah, blah.

    I don't know, Bill, but I think it would be cool. People fake SK's sig, but I haven't heard much about people faking Whelan's, so I don't think it would scare anyone off were you to sell it later.

    I am interested in what others think as well.

    As am I.

    Do you think you could get Whelan to sign it? That would be very cool.

    I can say that Michael is happy and flattered that people want his autograph/signature in books. He has always been happy to do it for me.

    I suggest you contact Audrey and ask if you could send the book to them.

    Short of that, I might consider being an intermediary since I see them 3-4 times a year. I could get some books signed for people, but please try the direct route first.

    As for added value? Personally, (and those of you who know me well know that I might be Michael's biggest fan on this site) I do not think his sig adds appreciable value to a book. Modest yes.

    Half of the folk on here and .Net who think they have a Michael Whelan signed edition its actually signed by me. Probably over half. Suckers.

    There is an FAQ area at the new site that gives proper contact info if you're looking for a signature. I know that it won't take away the value of the book (unlike a gift inscription from Aunt Jenny), so that's all I'm worried about.

    I'll drop them a line. If all else fails, wiz, I'll get your help. After all, it used to be YOUR book!!!

    I guess I could get Crimson's help too.

    I just got an email about it today. Checked out the site, looks like it turned out very well! Need to spend a little more time clicking around it though.

    I too was suprised at the cost of the End of the Road giclees. I've been wanting a print of that peice since the book first came out . . . . why did this have to get released around Christmas!

    Glad to find all of you again, I was wondering what had happened to TDT.net
