Join Christopher Paolini on Tour Through the UK! Tour Dates, Stops, and More!

  • Mitchicp

    are the 3 signed books hard cover or paperback

    • Coasterking

      what are you refering to?

      • Mitchicp

        the signing doesnt he sign the 3 books for you i just want to no cause i havent been to a book signing

        • Coasterking

          This is hard to answer. The few ive been to were for book releases so we could only get one copy of the newest books signed. Cause there were thousands of people there to meet him. since what you would go to is diffrent i dont know how it would work. I would call ahead to where he is going to be and ask what the limits are for the siging

  • EternalShade

    Mm.. Too bad i dont live in the UK.

  • Emeric

    So, Mike, I guess you don’t know anything about his international tour yet?

  • Irock13198

    is the podcast even recorded?

  • Anonymous

    There seems to be a mistake in this page; he isn’t touring the UK, he’s touring England. Funny how those two seem to get mixed up (as a Scot it feels pretty much like the equivalent of being told someone is touring all of the US only to find they’re giving you’re state a miss, but I digress). I can only hope he’ll visit the rest of the country after Inheritance is released *crosses fingers for Glasgow*

    • Saphiraimafan

      Its okay, i live in england and he isn’t coming withing 200 miles of me 🙂

    • Ceth

      More interestingly, only really the south of England. Which says a lot. *cough North/South divide cough*. But then again, who wants to get caught up in a semantics debate, eh?

      Honestly though, I’m fed up of Americans referring to the UK as ‘England’. That’s far more insulting than referring to England as the UK. The latter is more correct than the former. At least by referring to the country as the UK, you’re not discluding Scotland from the equation altogether.

      Oh, and my mother is from Glasgow too (father is from Stafford, but eh). Funny how its a small world on the internet.

      • Jack

        Maybe, they never mention Scotland, Wales Or Northern Ireland, because they’re so inconsequential, I mean really what have they done? Englands the main power by far of the UK. That’s probably why people say UK to mean England, but I agree they should differentiate between the countries specifically, or if they mean all of the nations, then say UK. XD

    Any chance of Christopher coming to NZ?

    • BWD

      I’m pretty sure he’s doing a world tour sometime after Inheritance’s release, so coming down to Australia and NZ and stuff 🙂 It was mentioned a few months back I think o_O

  • Fun fact: I wrote the long biography used as the featurette in the Fantasy Con souvenir book… so if you get a copy, you can point and go “Shur’tugal in print!” 😛
