  1. If you could possibly add even one additional shuttle astronaut, that would be most appealing. Chris Hadfield would male an interesting guest and would certainly guarantee my purchase of a ticket. Thank you all.
  2. A few more Astronauts would go down well. I see Eileen Collins has been booked up for one venue in UK already!
  3. Please Dave, Jason Could we have Mike Mullane, Helen Sharman, Pam Melloy Please and Thankyou.
  4. Mike Mullane would be an excellent choice. 'Riding Rockets' was an amazing read. I enjoyed it three times.
  5. The main thing is that he IS coming. Couldn't ask for more than that. While I am here, could you please please try and get Helen Sharman for this show. You can do it Dave and Jason. Thankyou
  6. There will be plenty of SPACE related suggestions. Please may I request the return of our own home grown cosmonaut HELEN SHARMAN
  7. Excellent suggestions there Helmut. Please please Showmasters, could you get Helen Sharman again.
  8. Wow. Thanks a million Guys. For me a fourth opportunity to meet one of the nicest guys on the planet. 2014 is looking to be a great year already!
  9. It's on Amazon UK. The release date says 15 Jan 2013, so it's out and on sale. The publisher is Purdue University Press. With all his experience in space he'd be a great guest and the reviews for his book have been very positive. I totally agree. Having now read Jerry Ross' book, I believe he would be an excellent guest and probably keen to participate and promote his book.
  10. I would like to add my name to the list of those who would love to see the return of this very gracious lady. Showmasters, you can do it if anybody can!
  11. This year's show continues to be highly enticing. Well done Dave and all concerned.
  12. That's an excellent piece of news,Guys. By making the announcement as early as this you have provided an excellent opportunity to get some good items together for signing. Very well done. As usual, Showmasters are TOPS.
  13. This thread will be full of laudatory comments for Dave, Jason, Paul and justifiably so! because they are amazing guys.
  14. Dave, I very much like your posting on Walt's fees. That statement is very much in keepiing with the the AUTOGRAPHICA ethos 'customers come first'. Thankyou team. The days are going to go slowly between now and then.. Plenty of time to get 'health issues' on track. Allan
  15. Another 'Eagle Has Landed' fan is well satisfied. 2013 Show is already shaping up well and its only January.
  16. With the Spacelab/STS-9 anniversary in November how about bringing over Ulf Merbold as a start to European guests. This is one aspect which has missed out in the past. European astronauts are attending space shows much more frequently now.
  17. Professor Brian Cox would perfetly combine the role of lecturer and signer. He has already been signed up before he will be joining Astronauts and other distinguished scientists, An advantage for Autographica would be in his fees, particularly travel. Journey would only be from Sheffield to Birmingham.
  18. I observe a presentation highlihed for this month IN ParisFebruary 23, 2013 Paris, France Jean Francois Clervoy STS-66, STS-84STS-103 Leopold Eyharts Soyuz TM27 STS-122, ISS-16 Pamela Melroy STS-92, STS-112, STS-120 This lecture, combined with Autograph sessions would be brilliant for Autographica 2013 Please give it a cosideration Team.
  19. When others fail, the Showmasters team get results. Well done guys, you are amazng. This is a great start to your list of guests for 2013.
  20. Showmasters Team, you were all brilliant. What you have achieved over the years is now a National Institution and part of our Heritage. Long may you continue to serve up this wonderful event. Give yourselves a huge pat on the back, because you unquestionably deserve it . An even bigger THANK YOU from all of us.
  21. I would like to say thank you to all who were involved with the Photoshoots. Everything went a dream and the instant availability of the end products was a terrific plus. However, I wanted to make a special mention for a photoshoot helper whose name I don't know. I have a diffcult medical condition which make walking / standing around extremely difficult and painful. I get by with two crutches. There was a young lady organising the queues on Saturday afternoon (glasses, dressed in black and white). She came out of the room periodically to announce who was being photographed at a particular time. That girl had endless patience and the way she helped me as a disabled person went well beyond the normal call of duty. For me she made the photoshoot happen and I couldn't have managed without her. So may I say a HUGE THANKS to this lovely person. You restore my faith in humanity.
  22. Totally agree. Story would be an amazing guest who would attract many collectors, and we all know that he knows how to deliver a rivetting lecture.
  23. Helen Sharman pleased. I missed her last time but i gather she was a great success.
  24. I heartily endorse both the above comments.
  25. I notice Ed Mitchell is indicating on his website that within his 2012 programme, he will be attending Autographica. Could Showmasters confirm or refute, please ?
