Library Addition: First Hardback Edition of Matt Hughes’ Fools Errant

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Mike Berro recommended Matthew Hughes as a Jack Vance-inspired writer quite a while back, so I’ve been looking for the first hardback edition of his first novel ever since, and one finally popped up at a decent price.

Hughes, Matt[hew]. Fools Errant. Maxwell Macmillan Canada, 1994. First hardback edition, a Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket, signed by Hughes. Bought from an online seller for $35.

And here’s Part 2 of those London Worldcon pics.

Note that some pictures are labeled “…and company.” This is code for “I’m slightly less embarrassed about not remembering your name a year later than I would be about getting it wrong.”
