    This is a great collection. Just got the British version at a used bookstore. I was wondering though, my version has the signature of Christopher Lee at the end of the introduction. I am wondering if it is just printed on there or if it is real? I am assuming printed. Does anyone know?

    I don’t have a copy of Realms … to hand, Jonathan, but I’d guess that it’s printed. Mr. Lee’s ‘signature’ graces Peter Haining’s The M.R. James Book of the Supernatural and just about any collection to which he’s provided an introduction or foreword.

  3. It is a printed one Jonathan, he signed his autiobiography books and a few film books but never mind signed by him or not its nice to have a descent book to read.
