Default David Fairbrother Roe offers White Dragon cover print

David Fairbrother Roe offers prints of his cover for The White Dragon for sale through his Dragondayz website: http://www.dragondayz.co.uk/default.htm

He doesn't list a price but since they are mentioned as being very rare, it will be steep I suppose. Still, an excellent collectors item!

An added bonus: on the site are pictures to be found of David's work for the Pern books Dragonsong and Dragonsinger and Get off the Unicorn.

News: over on AMCF bot Tony and Apocalypse mailed the site and got back differet answers...

Tony received:
I'll get in touch with Dave and we'll sort something out. Should be within the next week.

Apo received:
We haven't fixed a price yet, we're still getting things sorted. I'm keeping track of people who inquire so I'll get in touch when we're up to date.

Good grief.... the guy that said he spoke for David did send you a mail after your inquiry, didn't he? But after that you heard nothing?

Ah well, he never asked you to order/pay in advance now, did he?

Maybe there just wasn't the demand they had hoped for? In which case they should (have) email(ed) peeps anyway, of course

Indeed, just the one email saying he'd get back to me nearer the time things were ready for sale and then nothing.
No monies were exchanged.I'm simple, but not THAT simple!
I might just make the effort and reply to his email at some point, I'll let you know if I hear anything back.
Just don't hold ya breath.

Wasn't in any way suggesting you are simple, Baggs But he could have asked... (despite your unsimpleness).

Certainly won't hold my breath, but might want to drop him a mail myself

Hm..email came back, saying no such address!
Maybe there's been a "parting of the ways" and Mike no longer acts for DFR?

Right, seems so, Tony.

The link worked when I put it up, Nefer, I think Tony might be right. The site doesn't exist anymore and I'm glad I downloaded all pics from it

Hello , I am new to this site so hope protocol will not be upset if I tell you that I am selling on of the rare signed prints of the White Dragon. It is signed by "Dave Roe" as he was called then and also by Anne.
It was given to me by David as a birthday present as we were friends at the time while he lived in Sussex. Sadly we lost touch.

The Sale is on Ebay for the next 10 days.

"View your listing: Print of Book cover: The White Dragon signed by Anne McCaffrey & Dave Roe 11/33 - 150793982818"

I would really like this print to go to a fan who will give it a decent display; I no longer have the right space available.

If you have questions, best through Ebay as I get a reminder

Thanks for any interest
Steven
