A Heads up!

Postby ChrisF on Mon Aug 04, 2008 1:56 pm

Hey guys, I just noticed some one on Abebooks.com is selling 3 copies of the 1st printing of Better Than Home signed by Joe for $250. If you look at the picture, it has the same signature my forged books have that came from kickbuttbooks.

So watch out.

Also the seller right below the $250 version is also selling a signed copy. There is no picture, but it supposedly has the same signing date of 3-5-07.

Thanks Chris...not that I'd have $250 to spend on it anyway, but I have to say if I did and I bought this I'd be screaming mad! Someone should report these people. This is fraud, pure and simple.

Thanks for the warning. It angers me, but at the same time I guess I'm immune to it. There are fakes of everything and it's....just plain old wrong. URGH.
Thanks for the warning, though. That was nice of you.

So any recent sales by them are automatically bad or what? Please see my other post if you can find it. I seem to have misplaced it but can reference it again here: http://s831.photobucket.com/albums/zz232/MountainMan41/Joe%20Hill%20Books/ How can I get Shane or Joe to verify the authenticity of these pics.

Thanks for your quick response to my earlier post.

Im sure that when shane notices the post ...he will give u an opinion. Or you can give him a PM..

Now, my own opinion, and I mean..my own opinion...is that I wouldnt buy from them because Joe has already had a round of trouble from them.
Now, like i said before...i actually think that the one in the picture is not fake( thats my opinion...but shane and of course Joe are the people to ask)....but considering the history of kickbuttbooks..i wouldnt touch anything that they have....

and the best place to buy a signed book of Joe's is from the bookstores that he visited on his tour...thats what the majority of the people here do...thats what i do.

Could someone tell me where to find the "Spoiler" button. I have looked in FAQ for info and I haven't found it on the screen (doesn't mean it's not there.) I have already made a mistake and don't want to repeat it.
Thanks
