Hey all,

I just recently joined the site, and I was wondering if any of you have ever come across a Hell's Half Acre 1st/1st (Will Christopher Baer)? I have signed 1st/1st Kiss Me, Judas and Penny Dreadful, but I cannot find a Hell's Half Acre! I have scoured every website I know to look, and nothing. I would definitely be enthralled with a signed copy, but I would be happy just to find one at all! 

Does anyone know where to find a copy? Or has seen one before? My collection is rather small, and I would definitely appreciate any insight you all can bring.

I think HHA was first published by MacAdam/Cage, right? The other two were originally from Viking, and then M/C released hardcover versions of those two around the same time as the first of HHA, all in the same style. At least that's what I thought. I have the M/C first-edition hardcover (along with the other two), given to me as a gift from Richard Thomas for doing audio production on the limited edition of his first novel. I also have first-edition hardcovers of both Vikings and the paperback omnibus (which I've worn the hell out of). I don't want to part with any of them, just saying I've seen and own them.

Haha, me too, which led me here. I've killed the account. Now Thuggish looks like he is raging against mystery bitches.

Did the account also want to meet up with you in London for discreet sex? If so, I have a real problem with that. I don't condone double-booking.

Just deleted two out of my inbox myself. 

(In regards to my original post, I found the book.)

I thought maybe Thuggish was talking about Nathan, and oh man, I'm still laughing.

It definitely looks that way now that the spam comment is deleted. Lol

I too keep getting the emails from somebody wanting to meet up in London...

Also - I'm pretty sure I have a 1st/1st of Hell's Half Acre. I wouldn't part with it for anything though. Sorry.

Yea I got six of them as well. The skill used to make those could be used to make peoples lives easier. Like sentient laundrymats.
