The Good Omens author revealed on Twitter that he popped into the branch at Piccadilly to pick up a book, and when he saw this display of his novels he couldn’t help doing something slightly mischievous – and incredibly exciting.
“If you build it…” I stopped off at Waterstones in Piccadilly to pick up a book, and given that I was there I quietly signed, well, not all of the books in this display, but most of them. #HowToConjureAnAuthor. pic.twitter.com/zrnwNaE0zi

Gaiman revealed that he signed “most” of the books on this stand, meaning there will be plenty of gobsmacked fantasy fans who will get an incredibly special treat when they buy a copy of Norse Mythology or Smoke and Mirrors.
The author has form – he’s known for sneaking into shops, covertly signing copies and posting about his actions on Twitter…
Edinburgh airport. Stealth-signed 3 books and then into the @WHSmith where they had a whole display of Norse Mythology. Signed them, obviously not stealthily enough as a helpful shop assistant pointed out the other books by me in the back of the shop, so I signed them too. pic.twitter.com/F0y5UsHxVy
