When Disney Imagineers installed hologram guides for the Magic Kingdom using teenage models, they had no idea the technology might backfire.  But backfire it did: some nights when the kids go to sleep, they wake up in one of the Disney parks as a hologram.

Winner of the Edgar Award, Shamus Award and Anthony Award – the first author to win all three – international bestselling author Harlan Coben’s critically-acclaimed novels have been called “ingenious” (New York Times), “poignant and insightful” (Los Angeles Times), and “superb” (Chicago Tribune).

“Signed by the author” stickers

 Some signed first editions come with a sticker on the front of the book saying “signed copy” and it seems those copies are signed on a blank page. Are these books signed for large distribution?  Is your Clive Cussler Trojan Odyssey signed on the title page?” (Dave, New Jersey)

John responds…The sticker that you refer to is placed on the book by the publisher simply only to indicate that the book is signed.  Typically, they are signed on a blank page (referred to as a tip-in) that the author signs in bulk, and the publisher inserts them in at the bindery.  There is some controversy as to whether this type of signed edition holds the same value as a book that has been signed on the title page.  VJBooks does receive some books signed in this fashion from various publishers.  However, Trojan Odyssey is signed directly on the title page by Clive Cussler .
