SOLO's elusive exclusive (Update)

Because so many have asked, I just wanted to let you know that I have indeed heard rumors of a special edition of Solo that will sell for £150. It even briefly appeared on Amazon. However, I have not been able to nail down any details on it. If you are in the UK, you might want to ask about this in any local independent bookshops in your area. In the past Bond exclusives have been limited to independent stores and not wildly advertised online. And if you hear anything, please post in the Comments below.

"I'll never tell."

UPDATE: So this exclusive has finally made an appearance in a handful of bookstores around the UK. The edition is leather bound in a slipcase and limited to 100 signed copies. Many sellers are listing the book on eBay and elsewhere at what I consider an obscene markup. Buyer beware.

    2. Kevin -- is THIS all you have to report about the event? You were fortunate enough to get a press credential and be there -- how about telling us something that we couldn't get from official official press release? What was the question you asked Boyd and what was the answer? This is why you were there, no? To report. Throw us a bone!

  5. Wow! That's even cooler than a Solo LE. But WAY out of my price range, I'm afraid... I can't wait to see pictures! I wonder where one hides a secret compartment big enough for a deck of cards on a book as small as CR?
