|Forbidden Planet, Shaftesbury Avenue, London|
I'd been to the Quercus offices earlier and signed 21 copies (9 a repeat order which ain't too shabby and 12 for Carl a collector in Wales) so I was hoping that this was a good omen. All-in-all it didn't go too badly. I signed 19 for FP's mail-order customers and 35 for walk-ins. The great thing was how pleasant everybody was, the customers even taking the time to explain what lining is (a dedication quoting from the book). We came up with something novel here: Nelli wrote a greeting in Russian from one of the lead characters, Vanka Maykov. Everyone liked the posters too...I've got to remember to keep the remaining 200 for other markets.
