Over the Christmas period I managed to take some time off work to relax, and also to do a bit of book hunting. Hopefully I'll bring you some pics soon which includes buying some cheap Jonathan Capes that I found for sale.
Meanwhile here's some books I received in the post over the holidays. The first is a hardback first edition of William Boyd's "Solo". This is the Waterstone's red edition which includes Boyd's own signature and the date of release - "26/9/13". I've read on other websites how cool the dustjacket and cover is with the addition of the bullet holes, and now holding it in my own hands I couldn't agree more. It's also great to see the Cape logo on the side again.
I also received a US "Uncorrected Advance Proof" edition of "Blood Fever" by Charlie Higson published by Miramax Books / Hyperion in 2006. I know I've mentioned this before but as a collector the number of cover variations for the "Young Bond" novels is daunting to say the least. I'll try and scan this cover and add it to the website ASAP.
