If wishes come true, I'll be dancing with cats and horses.

Did that grab your attention??

He, he, actually I'm dancing, , singing "la, la, la", , bouncing off the walls, , I'm so excited. WHY?

BECAUSE I FOUND 2 OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS:

IF WISHES WERE HORSES AND
NO ONE NOTICED THE CAT.

I found them at Minotaur in Melbourne, the other day. I swear my friend got so bored with me that she left the shop in disgust and 2 minutes later I've found these. By the time we got home, they were finished.

Hooray for you! I love those little books. The very first convention I went to that Anne attended I stood in line for her to sign No One Noticed The Cat. I've often wondered if she was surprised that it wasn't one of her more popular series books, but I'm just a crazy cat lady. It means a lot to me!

Great find Like Hans, I'm curious to know which version you found, the little hardbacks are really fun, but some of the larger versions are equally attractive

Good luck in the hunt for number three

Those three books are among my favorites, not only because they're a quick read (tho not sure I've read them quite that fast!) but they are very good stories! Congrats on the find and hope you can find the third soon if you don't have it already.

I had to trot downstairs and see which paperback edition I had. It's published in Canada by Wildside Press. Cover art is by someone named Charles Bernard. The cover has sort of an "Arabian Nights" feel, to me!

You mean to say that there's a 3rd one? Oh crumbs (shards)! I'll have to ring Minotaur and put a request in now! Or check ebay!

Okay as to the 2, I found. Normal paperback size, Cosmos is the publisher and Charles Bernard was the cover artist. Priscilla had the right idea that it has an "Arabian Nights" feel about the covers, anyway. Hope that helps someone out - new version of a book cover that's already out, perhaps. I'll have to scan them and see if someone on MOM staff can put them in (or can I do it myself?)

I've got the 3rd one coming from the USA, off ebay. Home is a 3 1/2 drive from Melbourne so 2 short stories can be comfortably read in that time, even when one is talking, LOL!

Went to one of my so called "Local" bookshops and managed to pick up a different copy of *Exchange of gifts* and also *Serve it forth*. I'll scan them in and "photobucket" the books for all to see. I'm so excited!!!!

Oh, yes. That's the No One Noticed the Cat that I have in paperback. (I've also got that in hardback that I took to the first Dragon*Con I went to and Anne signed it for me). I'm starting to try and decide what books to take with me to Albacon. My husband and I are going, as well as my son and his girlfriend, so I figure at 2 books signed per person, that is 8 I must decide on. One will definitely be my hardcover Moreta with the Whelan cover, another The Dolphins of Pern (because my son did a drawing based on the cover and I sent it to Anne years ago, it's hanging on her bulletin board to this day), and the lovely play that Flinx sent me. That's three, and I've got plenty of time to poke through and pick out a couple more. Oh, I've got a hardback copy of Masterharper of Pern. Might take that as well. Decisions, decisions! I just hope people don't show up with suitcases of books expecting her to sign all of them!

Priscilla - you can BET there will be folks there with CASES full of books! At her SFHoFame induction I took 6 books with me because I couldn't decide so I was going to have Anne choose which 2 to sign. It wasn't busy and she ended up signing all 6, luckily. But there were people there with cases on wheels full of books! Not only for Anne, of course, but there were several that had lots for Anne to sign. I hope she didn't go overboard with the signing for them and won't overdo at Albacon too. Good luck with your books!! You'll have such a good time!

We had to really limit her at Eurocon and I can imagine the rows and crowd will be much, much larger at Dragoncon, so... I wouldn't get my hopes up of getting lots of books signed. Not that I wouldn't be happy fr everyone to have as many signed as they want but it's not reality, she's really, really getting older folks

And Jube, trying out the nifty features of Photobucket at the second attempt eh?

Yup, I'm getting really good at it, thanks to you. Hope I impressed everyone. By the way, Hans, you didn't answer my question about the 3 books (Dragonflight, quest and white dragon) you had for sale but then I haven't had time to look at that thread in particular so re-asking the question again... If you're unable to get them signed at Dragoncon, I understand but I would still like them, if possible. I've checked all my emails etc but nothing from you yet???????????? so just wondering.

I forgot to ask also, if anyone's interested, look for "TIME GENTLEMEN, PLEASE" by Pamela Marriott on Ebay.com.au, it's all about the pubs/inns around Port Fairy and surrounding areas. My mum is trying to sell them as she wrote the book and has asked me to pass the message on to anyone who is interested in Australian History. So I can honestly say I have an author in my family too! She would like some help, please and if you ask her really nicely, she'll sign it too for you as it's a limited edition of 1000 copies. That's my one and only plug for something on ebay so far, that's by someone I know. So if interested, please give a yahoo for it and have a look. Thanks from my mum. And for me too, I like to give her a surprise or 2 for Mother's day.
