When I lived in San Francisco, I was just down the street from the amazing Borderlands Books, who would take orders for my books with inscriptions. I'd stop in a couple times a week and sign the special orders and they'd ship 'em out. Since moving to London, though, this deal has been a little harder to pull off -- a 9,000 mile commute to the shop makes this not very practical.
However, I've got the next-best thing: a bookstore in Canada and a store in the UK that are taking special orders for my books with signature and inscription requests, who will ship them out once they're signed. I'm doing the Toronto signing on July 11 and I'll be meeting up with the UK seller in late July. Place your orders before then if you want signed copies!
I'm doing a book-launch at Toronto's BakkaPhoenix on July 11, and the good folks there have graciously agreed to take orders for signed and inscribed copies of any or all of my books. Simply contact them before the 11th of July with your order and I'll sign it when I swing by the store -- they'll ship out the signed articles shortly thereafter.
Here are the shipping rates:
All shipping rates in $CDN and do not include the cost of the books:
Canada: 1 book $8, 2 books $10, 3 books $12
For larger orders, or destinations not listed, please email them directly.
Here's all the contact info:
For Europeans -- or those who are too late to order with Bakka -- your best bet is Iain Emsley's Aust Gate, in Oxford. Ian's offering free second-class shipping in the UK, and very reasonable rates to the rest of the world:
UK - First class: £2.00

Doctorow is one of sci-fi’s most exciting young writers, and one of the few with a genuine sense of humor. This is, even by his own bizarre standards, his oddest work yet — an absurd, cartoonish fantasy about a man whose father is a mountain, whose mother is a washing machine, and whose brother is a set of Russian nesting dolls. It all takes place in Toronto, where our hero finds love — and discovers a passion for installing wireless Internet connections.
