    There’s a listing on Amazon for a copy of Last Human by Doug Naylor signed by Rob Grant.
    Now, either they’ve got it mixed up with Backwards, they’ve got Rob mixed up with Doug, or there genuinely is a copy of Last Human signed by Rob Grant up for sale on Amazon.
    I want it to be the last one. I want someone to have approached Rob with Last Human, perhaps not even aware he didn’t write it, and Rob looking at it for a second and thinking “yeah alright”.

    Is the correct response.

    Dammit Ben, I had the image prepped before I even opened the thread.

    Hah. Perfect. Image provided by the seller…

    Let’s try that again.

    Yes it real! Hahahahaha brilliant.

    I just bought it in case anyone was wondering. I was going to buy Last Human anyway, and I can’t pass up owning this. Maybe I’ll get my copy of Last Human by Doug Naylor signed by Rob Grant signed by Doug Naylor.

    I hope he was laughing as he signed it.

    You’ll have to change your name to Daniel though, Ben.

    At the weekend I found a signed copy of Shappi Khorsandi’s novel in a charity shop that was dedicated ‘to Amanda’, so I’ve got an even bigger problem facing me.

    #223073

    Dave

    I think that the book’s owner no longer being someone called Daniel only adds another layer to the joke.

    What if Rob Grant had not continued to sign the book after Last Human?

    #223075

    Pete Part Three

    I like to think this book will be one of the few remaining artifacts of human civilization in three million years time. The future inhabitants will ponder “Who was Daniel?” “Who was Rob Grant and why has he signed a book written by someone else?” and “What is a book. anyway?”

    Hello. Lurker here. This has reminded me of this poster curio I’ve had stashed away for the Last Human, by Grant Naylor: https://imgur.com/a/raGcB

    Gotta love the art on that. :)

    #223084

    performingmonkey

    Seriously though……the actual heck with the book?? Maybe various things were being signed and Rob goes ‘fuck it, I’ll sign that for you as well’? Doug needs to see this cause it’s bloody hilarious. :D also it should be owned by someone called Daniel, or Danny or of that ilk I mean for fuck’s sake.

    #223089

    Dave

    also it should be owned by someone called Daniel, or Danny or of that ilk I mean for fuck’s sake

    No no, a book that’s written by Doug but signed by Rob should definitely be dedicated to a Daniel but owned by a Ben.

    Are you really Alex Collier? If so, hello. I enjoy your work.

    #223092

    International Debris

    Discussion point: why is the book with four main human characters the one called Last Human?

    #223094

    Pete Part Three

    Would dearly love to read the original draft/treatment/idea of The Last Human. The art Alex posted was in the Smegazine, alongside an interview with Rob and Doug where they confidently said “it takes place the day after” or something.

    Should have been called “Only Human”, mind.

    #223097

    Ben Saunders

    Just read one chapter of Backwards then the second chapter of Last Human etc to get an idea.

    (Can you believe they ever thought that would work?)

    #223099

    alexcollier

    I *think* it was mentioned on the series 7 doc that R&D did attempt to work together on the Last Human, writing alternate chapters? Though I may well have remembered that completely wrongly, or just made it up by mistake. Always thought there must have been some progress made for a publisher to knock out posters, anyway.

    Also, ta Taiwan Tony. Deeply flattered that you think anyone would pretend to be me.

    #223100

    Taiwan Tony

    What? You’re like a comedy/art hero of mine!
    When I lived in London I did a few open spots (at the Bedford) with Simon on the same bill and I never bumped up the courage to talk to him. But you both were hugely important to me. It’s a proper thrill to see you here. I’d suggest you might want to appear on a Series XII DwarfCast with Ian if it wouldn’t make me jealous as fuck.

    Anyway. This is all getting a bit BDTS/Step Into My Office.

    Why did they combine four human characters into one Last Human though?

    #223140

    Jonsmad

    Ben you need Backwards signed by Doug Naylor for the set.

    #223142

    Jonsmad

    Ah, THE Alex Collier. Nice one. Hello

    Will you sign my back issue of Zit?

    #223147

    Ben Saunders

    Does Doug do signings? He appears at publicity events and I guess Dimension Jump but I don’t think I can afford DJ

    #223148

    Jonsmad

    Not sure got my doug signature 3 DJs ago and, The next DJ is amazingly sold out already in just four days.

    Because Craig has agreed to sign Brittas Empire DVDs

    #223149

    Ben Saunders

    Took me a whole 20 seconds of considering a reply before I realised the joke, there. I was going to ask, does Chris not usually sign Brittas DVDs? Why not?

    #223150

    cwickham

    Doug was signing at DJ 2015, but he wasn’t part of the official signing session and you had to accost him in the corridor if you happened to see him.

    #223184

    Jo TORDFC

    Doug just attended Stoke-Con-Trent, so might well do other appearances. No idea if he has any confirmed though.

    …you had to accost him in the corridor if you happened to see him.

    This is not true.

    #223185

    Ben Saunders

    There’s a sitcom where one of the jokes is how difficult it it to say somebody’s name because their first name ends with a K, and their second name also begins with a K. “Stoke-Con-Trent” reminds me of that.

    #223189

    cwickham

    This is not true.

    To be fair I didn’t actually get anything signed by Doug because I thought he was part of the main signing session and he’d left by the time I was out of that, so it’s possible I’ve got this wrong (should have clarified that originally. Sorry about that). But he was definitely signing programmes somewhere at some point in the day.

    #223207

    Jo TORDFC

    Yeah, we had to set up a separate session with him as the autographs were a last minute decision, we did try to let everyone know!

    #223212

    cwickham

    Ah, I clearly didn’t hear and then got the wrong end of the stick. Apologies!

    #223214

    Jo TORDFC

    No worries! :)

    #223215

    Darrell

    I think a mod needs to step in here, it’s getting a bit aggressive.

    #223217

    Jo TORDFC

    Do you need a hug Darrell?

    #223220

    Darrell

    I blame the storm. It’s broken me.

    #223221

    Ben Saunders

    I’ll break you, you cunt

    #223223

    Pete Part Three

    Well, that escalated quickly.

    I just came off a three hour phone conversation with cwickham and they’re leaving the board.

    I hope you found their modelling portfolio first.

    #223289

    Coincidentally, this is what everyone who’s seen my modelling portfolio says.

    Why did you combine three hours into one phone conversation though?

    #223313

    Seb Patrick

    I’m glad somebody bought this, although I’m slightly annoyed it wasn’t me.

    #223338

    Ridley

    Is it too late to mention the Jethro video signed by Bono?

    #223340

    Pete Part Three

    He is not Bono, he is rubbish.
