For Autograph Hound Super-Sunday our new guy Jeff Mariotte decides to let it all — or a huge chunk of it — hang out. I’m pretty sure he wasn’t kidding when he said he had a large collection of post-1980 crime writer signatures, or, as he casually notes:
“Here’s an assortment of Ellroy autos. If the title isn’t visible on the page he signed, I scrawled it at the bottom of the picture. Same for the year it was signed.”
I think the additional scrawled info went onto some kind of photocopy, not on the original book, in case any of you purist book collectors begin to experience heart palpitations.
