    BTW pictures of the innards are no big deal. There's only 1700 books, and most of those are claimed already. So if you want to demonstrate niceness and fawn over the pictures and whatnot, feel free!

    Got mine today. Woot! Just leafed through it this morning, and going to really look at in in a bit. It's very well done, at a first glance.

    Got mine last week,but been too busy to page through it - although I did thumb to Annie Wu's pic, and one of me mates (SFSlim) is the subject for Audrey Penven's photographic depictions of Spider....

    @Art -- might be an idea to start a thread specifically to arrange getting the books signed by as many participants as possible. Maybe a con calender / directory with the contributors?


    I don't think I'll be able to get to many cons outside of Europe... (none actually)... but I'll be at my table in the Local Artists Alley at the Belgian F.A.C.T.S. convention after the summer, so if any of you lot are coming over...? ;)

    Got my contributor copy late last week (here in rainy Western Washington), and finally got a chance to really pore over it. It's a terrific package, and the team that put it together (I dealt mostly with Susan Augér, who was characteristically awesome) deserve major praise. It's amazing.

    Lea Hernandez's Magical Truthsaying Bastard Spidey two-pager had me howling with glee/joy/mirth.

    I cannot stress how amazing it is to be published aside so many important people of my fading childhood as well as people that I see as peers today.

    I'm proud I shoved Richard Pace the info and that piece of his is within the book. It's so very stunning.

    The team made this book with love. Every bit of it.

    I've bought Art Books in the past that were utter crap compared to the attention to detail this one has.

    Got mine too! Looks amazing!

    One question though, were people asked to contribute or was it a submission thing? I notice that photos were allowed and am kind of sad that I didn't contribute.

    And I found out that people were approached. Contributors also gave suggestions for other contributors and my name just wasn't brought up. Ah well! It happens. Quite sad that I didn't contribute, but ridiculously happy for those that did. Can't wait to go through the book and relive the magic.

    Just got mine today. Stunned over the page-to-page quality in this book.

    Gotta thank Jack Crowder for passing the info along so I could get in under the wire.

    @oldhat: At first I thought it was invitation only, untill Felipe Sobreiro asked me (one day before the deadline) why I hadn't submitted anything. So I got my ass in gear in cobbled up a Fred Christ, sent it off to Susan, and hoped for the best. And, apparently they still had some room for me. :)
