We are working on importing all of the guestbook entries from the old website (over 5,000 entries!!) into our new Guestbook. If you signed the old one, we have your entry and will add it here soon…
Welcome to the Guestbook!
I’m always eager to read your comments about my books and stories, so please feel free to pitch in. Here are a few things for you to know:
1) I answer the messages here personally.
2) No message shows up here until I actually answer it to prevent spam and other inappropriate postings. So there will sometimes be a delay before your message posts, especially if I am traveling.
Sign the Guestbook!
Hi Bruce. Sorry to sign your guestbook again. I wanted to say thanks for explaining about how the books were released, I'm blonde so sometimes things which seem self explanatory don't make sense to me right away. Thanks again. ~Amanda
Hi Bruce. I feel honored you remember me. Hmm, I wonder how that person is selling a hardcover book if there isn't one. Sounds like a scam to me. Yes, that would be great, even a hardcover boxed set would be awesome. As for my email address, I don't actually eat snakes. The first three letters are my first, middle, and last innitials and the last part is from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater which is one of my favorite Metal Gear Solid titles. If you're not sure of the franchise it's a video game series which has been going on since 1998 but they had couple of earlier games sort of prequel games in the 1980's. I was born in 1984 but didn't start playing the NES until I was around 4 or 5. Anyway, sorry to ramble but I appreciate you letting me know about The Unicorn Chronicles. Have a great rest of the week. ~Amanda
Hi Bruce. I'm one of your fans since childhood who became an adult, I moved from Warwick to Smithfield if that makes a difference in remembering who I am. Anyway, I was wondering if Into The Land of the Unicorns made it to hardcover (with the remade cover art). I wanted to get it and Song of the Wanderer in hardcover to go with The Last Hunt and Dark Whispers which I have in hardcover. I saw a listing with hardcover on amazon but it was from a third party seller and they were charging $500. No joke. Did you know your books are made out of gold? Just kidding. Anyway, thanks. Happy Fourth of July! ~Amanda
Hi Bruce! I loved your books as a kid, and it was great for me to kind your resources here, it really turned back the clock for me a while. I recently bought "The Skull of Truth" and loved it. Keep up the good work!
Hello again, Bruce! Today I was reminded of the Nina Tanleven books. I immediately came to this site to make sure I had all the names correct. Lo and behold, a 4th book! My inner child screamed out loud. I loved those books so much as a child. I ordered the first 3 right away. I can't wait to share them with my kids when they arrive. Thanks for being a wonderful part of my childhood!!
Hello Bruce! I am a college student now, but I still love your books, especially the Unicorn Chronicles and the Magic Shop ones. Those books introduced me to fantasy when I was a kid and shaped my love for the genre - unicorns have never been so awesome! Thank you for writing them, you've inspired so many people and brought the beauty of worlds beyond our own to our minds and our hearts. When I think of the world of Luster and its inhabitants, I still feel wonder and awe.
Dear Mr. Coville,
As a child and teen, your writing inspired me to many creative endeavors, and opened my mind the whole wide world.
Your "I was a Sixth Grade Alien", "Magic Shop", "My Teacher is an Alien", and The Rod Albright Adventures are my favorite books that I own.
Even now as I approach 30, I still read them, if only to surround myself in the vivid settings and deep characters you created.
I always wondered if you ever thought about continuing Pleskit's adventures as a teenager or young-adult? Or if you ever thought about writing more in the Magic Shop series?
Maybe it's the kid in me wanting to continue those awesome memories.
As one human being to another, I want to thank you for sharing with the world your incredible gift, and for making my childhood so extraordinary.

Hi This is from Mr. Barde's students who will skype with you next week!
Mrs. Burke is typing this message for students:
Your books sound really fun and I want to read the Foolish Giant.
I want to read the World's Worst Fairy GodMother.
I want to say, Happy Birthday and I hope you have the best birthday ever!
What inspired you to make the Mad Brownie?
We wish Mrs. Burke would let us go check-out books!!!

I'm in my late 20's now, but I'd like you to know how much I loved your books as a kid, and how much they made me happy and stimulated my imagination. I particularly enjoyed all of your short stories, the Unicorn Chronicles, and the Magic Shop series. I also loved the full cast audiobook versions of your books. I recently purchased "The Skull of Truth" from an audiobook website, and it brought back so many memories. I personally believe (though I haven't read all of your books) that it's one of your best works, and the cast is so good! (Particularly Daniel Bostick as Yorick - so funny and moving! I hope he knows how good he is.) Thank you for helping to create some really great memories for me.
