I have no paper editions of my work in the UK, and so it is not surprising that I am pretty obscure in this country. However, a close canvassing of the huckster room reveals one dealer with dozens of the old DAW Books, the ones with the yellow spines. My first novel was one of the last ones in that format — shortly after 1984 Don Wollheim changed the look of the line and the yellow spines were gone. And lo and behold, here it is, a first edition of THE CRYSTAL CROWN. I immediately offered to sign it for the proud proprietor, and he instantly closed on the offer. I took a picture — must go back in a couple days and see if an autograph helped it to sell.
