Canny investors

No real surprise here:
FIRST editions of Ian Rankin's books fetched £900 at auction yesterday.
On Tuesday we went to hear Michael Fry and Allan Massie at the Book Festival. I'd already obtained a signed copy of Michael Fry's history of the Highlands and my wife queued up for Allan Massie to sign a copy of his new book. And whom should I spot in the queue? None other than Ian Rankin, eagerly clutching an about-to-be-signed first edition!
