ITEM: I’m donating a 1st edition hardback of Scrivener’s Moon, which is the sequel to A Web of Air and Fever Crumb and the latest installment of the Mortal Engines sequence. I’ll sign it and, if the buyer wishes, I can do a drawing on the title page as well.

    I’d like to start the bidding at £50 for this one, please.

    I bid £140. I love Mr. Reeves work and have collected the entire Mortal Engines sequences in hardcover.

      Dear Mr. Reeve,
      I’m what you call a “kindly old man” and I can see that Ali B. is as big a fan of your brilliant work as I am.

      I’ll raise my bid to £150 and I wonder, if Ali matched my bid, you would consider allowing 2 winners?

      Ali, since this for such a good cause, if Mr. Reeve can not accept my proposal, if you raise you bid to £175, I’ll drop out of further bidding.

      If I won, I was going to request a dedication to myself and my 3 beloved cats and ask that you sketch Grike with my 3 cats on or near him :-).

      I’ll be waiting anxiously for your response. I’m in Nevada, USA GMT-8 (I think) PST.

      • Philip Reeve says:

        Dear Mr Barish,

        That sounds more than reasonable; I think I can rustle up an extra hardback copy. I can’t promise a very good likeness of the cats, but I’ll do my best!


      • Jed Barish says:

        Mr. Reeve,

        Thank you!

        Ali, are you in?

        I’m SO excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Bill Fannin says:

    I bid 160 GBP.

  9. Ali B says:

    I see another bidder has offered £160. I’ll offer £170. It’s for a great cause.

  10. Jed Barish says:

    I’ll match that 170 from Ali if that’s OK Mr. Reeve.

    I agree that this is a great cause.

  11. Bill Fannin says:

    It is a great cause, so I bid 175 GBP.

  12. Jed Barish says:

    OK, I’ll go to 180 GBP. Maybe Philip, Bill, Ali and Jed can all move somewhere together and pass it around 🙂

  13. Jed Barish says:

    I do believe the cats and I have got it!

    Bill and Ali, you can buy a signed copy at:


    for GBP 13.

    Bless you both for caring so much about our unfortunate brothers and sisters in Japan.

  14. Jed Barish says:

    Mr. Reeve,

    Please let m know where to send a phoo of the cats. I understand that they won’t look identical and I’ll b thrilled with whatever the outcome.

    Thank you for your generosity.

    Jed Barish

  15. Jed Barish says:


    I think Mr. Reeve would let you get a copy by matching my GBP 180 bid. Why don’t you write and ask him?
