I was fortunate enough to be able to get to the “local” launch of The Rainbow Orchid in E. Grinstead, where the local bookshop (called “The Bookshop”) played host to a party for Garen. There was some eating and drinking, and meeting of like-minded fans, plus free badges and chance to meet and talk to the man himself.
Garen was most hospitable, and cheerfully sketched and signed books for anyone who asked - it was a real pleasure to meet him!

There are a few photos to be seen on the tintinologist Facebook page here, if you are interested.

I'd love to buy a copy but at $27 Australian dollars for Volume One, I might just wait until all three volumes are available and then buy them together. Looking good!
Some good photos there Jock. The cake looks to good to eat.

There is a UK website that sells The Rainbow Orchid for under £5 (as of this posting) and offers free international delivery - The Book Depository. This is pretty much the best offer I've seen :-)

Thanks for the help. That's a great place. I love the Book Depository. Can't believe I didn't think of it earlier.

JUst a quick note that the third and final installment of The Rainbow Orchid will be available in about a month.
As a taster, Garen has posted a grid of sample images over at his blog, and gives details where you’ll be able to catch him making promotional and convention appearances over the coming year.

Thanks for the heads-up on that, Jock. I've been looking forward to reading this.

I'll re-read the first two while I'm waiting, so as to remind myself of all the ins and outs of the plot!

Does anyone know if these are still available to buy? I'd be really interested to read these! Thank you.

Hi Rhods1989
I'm not sure where you're based, but yes, from a quick look on Amazon's UK site just now, at least a couple of the three volumes seem to be available new. And all of them, as well as the all-three-parts-in-one-book Complete Rainbow Orchid edition, seem to be available second hand at reasonable prices, either through Amazon or sites like Abe Books.
I hope that helps. :)

Thank you Balthazar! I saw the three-in-one book not long after I posted so I will check that out. They look brilliant so would love to check them out.
