I cannot say that I am a collector of signed copies of books, but I do have two of them. One is by Andre Norton (which I cannot find right now) and the other is my prized copy of Dawn by Octavia Butler. Ms. Butler was exceedingly gracious and she humored my gushing praise like a true professional when I met her in Orlando some ten years ago. Sadly she is no longer with us. (Love you, hun. Your awesomeness lives on!) Do you have any signed copies? Did you meet the author? Were they how you expected them to be?
