If you would like to have a book signed and/or personalized, you can send it to me at the following address:
P.O. Box 131941
The Woodlands, TX
When you send me something, please alert me by e-mail so I’ll know to be on the lookout for it, as I may only check the PO box infrequently otherwise. Please specify to whom you would like the book inscribed and where you would like the autograph to appear. For short stories, I prefer to sign the story itself rather than at the front, but it’s up to you.
All books sent for signing must be accompanied by a return addressed mailer bearing sufficient postage. Note that metered postage cannot be used for this purpose as the USPS will not accept packages with metered postage if the postmark date is not current. Only real lick-em-and-stick-em stamps will do for the return postage. I don’t make the rules, I just pass ‘em on!
Note also that the return stamps must be U.S. stamps. I can’t use Canadian stamps or European ones either. If you are outside of the country, you have two options — you can purchase U.S. stamps online or you can buy sufficient International Reply Coupons from your post office to cover the return postage.
To quote the eminent Joe R. Lansdale’s web site, “Books, magazines, etc., containing Mr. Lansdale’s work, sent without return postage, will be designated a gift and will be kept or disposed of in the manner Mr. Lansdale chooses. Selling the items is a favorite choice.”
Sounds like a reasonable policy to me!
As a less expensive alternative for The Road to the Dark Tower, just send me your mailing address, and I’ll mail out a signed bookplate like the one pictured here that you can stick inside your copy of the book for free!
