All right - those boxes on the front table - are they Warhammer stuff? (I can't quite make them out)

Dan Abnett?
Gav Thorpe?
Andy Remic?

Well, I think I recognise the decor of that particular bookshop. Is it WJ Stuart? He novellised the film of that store....

Kim Newman's doing the latest booksigning announced on their website? Didn't Elspeth Cooper do a signing there last year, along with Brandon Sanderson, Trudi Canavan and every other SFF author in the world? I'll also throw in Aaronivitch (works in Covent Garden Waterstone's) and Joe Abercrombie (did a signing last year and did an interview recently).

well clearly Robert Silverberg will be in
Is that because the lights are on in the picture, so you're assuming it's Nightfall?

No because its the LAW that Robert Silverberg must feature in every Fantasy anthology.

Still struggling on the Forbidden Planet one. Unless it's a trick and that's Overlord in the background?

Oh, that's Forbidden Planet? I've not been there for, er, more years than I care to remember. It looks different....

A picture of a bookshop? That's pretty broad clue.....

When you find out the answer it's actually a pretty good clue *grin*

Oooh Oooh, I know the answer!

Cannot wait to reveal these names   :)

I had the same thought about the first one - Mark Charan Newton

But as the car is apparently a Ford, I would be more inclined to opt for Richard Ford ( or Jasper Fforde, maybe ) for that one.

Overlord may be relatively new to the fantasy addiction which now controls his life, but I suspect he has already succumbed to the genre's bad puns. That car's definitely a Ford Capri - we used to have one when I was little. But it's also a coupe...
