John Varley is selling some autographed Heinleins
"I know many of you have asked when my next novel, Irontown Blues, will be published. The answer is that I’m pretty sure it will be
in the Fall, September or October."
"Which means I have to hand it in by April 30. Since it’s not finished yet, this has been a cause of quite a bit of anxiety for us. I
am working hard every day. I am pleased to say it’s coming along well."
"But I am way over the original deadline, and this time the publisher has said they will not extend it again. Meantime, the well is
running dry, the bank account virtually empty. So it’s time to bite the bullet, dig into the vaults, and have a garage sale online."
"I am selling four hardcover first editions of books by Robert A. Heinlein. These books are all autographed, and three of them are
inscribed to me, personally. On the Antiques Roadshow such books are referred to as association copies. That is, a signature of a
famous author with a dedication to another famous person. (Well, within the science fiction community I am sort of famous.)"
"The Cat Who Walks Through Walls"
It looks like the "Job" and "To Sail Beyond the Sunset" are sold already.
