  1. I recently came across a copy of this book inscribed to the author and film writer, Phillip Nutman. It is number 16 of 20 and the inscription says “To Phil, Dragoncon 2010”. My understanding is that this was only given to friends at Dragoncon and was not published anywhere else. Is that true? Any ideas what this book may be worth? Any information would be appreciated. It has some fun and interesting samples. Not looking to sell, just curious about its value since it is so rare.
    Thank you.

    1. Hi, Lynn!

      What fun, that you have a copy!

      That book was published in haste and just on a whim. I wanted to share some of my works-in-progress with a few friends at that Dragon*Con, so I threw together some sample chapters — warts and all, as they say — and turned it into a limited edition book. When people asked me what I was working on, it was simpler to hand them the sampler than try to describe some of my more complex research ideas.

      Only 20 copies of that book were published, and all were gifts to people I chatted with at the convention, usually in the “green room” between our speaking gigs and panels.

      Some of the book samples never became books. Others were radically changed from that sampler. A few were published with content similar to what you’ll see in that book.

      I’m not sure that it’s especially collectible right now, but some of my fans are very enthusiastic and take pride in owning everything I’ve written.

      In 20 or so years — maybe less, if I’m more focused with my research and writing efforts — it may be valuable. For now, I haven’t a clue.

      Cheerfully,
      Fiona
