Hi

Does anyone have any info on a paperback version of liseys story published in 2006 in a slip case? Apparently this is 1/100 but only written in pen and I can't seem to find any other info on it. Is this a genuine item? Any idea of value etc?

First I've heard of it. There is a book club edition floating around that I think had a slipcase but nothing written in Pen and limited to 100 copies - If anyone finds different please include a link! :)

OK, so after some extensive research I managed to find out that H&S sent out only 100 of these items to readers in the UK as proof arcs. The price shot up to £33 on Ebay in the final few seconds of the auction.

Had email back from H&S... oops

Dear Andy,



Thank you for your enquiry. We did publish some proofs of LISEY'S STORY but each was numbered and allocated for a specific recipient in the trade or media as a gift. They were not then and should not now be on sale so I'm afraid we cannot provide a service verifying whether or not this is one of the proofs we produced.



It is a wonderful book however and we hope you enjoy reading it in any format.



With best wishes,



Cicely Aspinall
