Current prices for first printings in fine condition are as follows: The exclusive Limited Edition stamped copies can be had from around £39.99, a Doodled hardback copy from £44.99, a signed hardback copy from £18.99, and unsigned hardbacks from £12.53. So, there is still chance to get a collectable book at a great price.
A Fete Worse than Death is a fantastic book. I'm looking forward to the next installment. Check out the website and join the Jack Haldean forum: Plus, if you get the correct answers to the quiz questions below, you will be entered into a competition to win a framed signed publicity postcard and a Royal Flying Corps cap badge which Jack Haldean might have worn. Submit your answers to Dolores Gordon-Smith at her website. The winner will be announced by Editor-in-Chief Craig Stark on July 15th.
NOTE: Some of the answers can be found only on the website.]
The name of the winner and the winning cocktail will be posted on the website after the competition closes.
So, be warned, if you read this book your partners will be in for a tough time. You will expect nothing but the best manners and behaviour. A new wardrobe of clothes (or suits), meals in the best restaurants, and at the very least a butler and an upstairs maid.
Good luck, chaps!
