SIGNED by Michael Marshall Smith, Neil Gaiman, and Alan Clark in this signed limited edition of only 500 copies.
Luck? Don't talk to Jack Randall about luck. He didn't keep up the payment on his, and it ran out a long time ago. The good fortune box is empty. A loner veteran of a savage war, he's spent the last five years buried deep, hiding out on a Spares farm with people who can't even spell luck.

Forced to flee this last bolthole, Jack returns to the city that used to be his home. All he wants is to score a little money and disappear with the people he's trying to save. Unfortunately, he's got a talent for attracting trouble-the kind most people would run screaming from. Jack Randall isn't most people. That's part of his problem. His escape from the Farm with six of its inmates (well, five and a half) brings him head to head with the man who destroyed everything he once held dear.

He has to make a decision: take revenge or turn away?

In a startling odyssey of fear, black comedy and the surreal, Jack Randall discovers that the choice has already been made. The demons in him take on the demons without, and all he can do is stand back and see who wins.

Review:

Imagine a future--next year, perhaps?--in which the wealthy clone themselves at birth to provide spare parts for their bodies as they become needed. Drop into that scenario a tough but compassionate ex-cop who decides to liberate seven "spares" from the farm where they're being kept until needed, and you've got a lively, very moving combination of genres that has already been bought for the big screen.

From the Publisher:

The Overlook Connection Press is proud to bring you this novel in the author's preferred text in hard cover for the first time. With "first" publication of "The Lost Chapter" from Spares, and three short stories that relate to the novel. Guest introduction by Neil Gaiman (author of The Sandman, Neverwhere, and Stardust) and an afterword by the author, Michael Marshall Smith. Now it's your turn. . . Have you been Spared?
