I have one, and the one I have is supposedly rather scarce, being totally transparent, so you can see the bits of plastic on the inside that were used as braking material.

Perhaps whitey can help.  I know he's still sitting on that -2 feedback.  That would teach this schmo a lesson about trying to convert everyone he sees via ebay.  C'mon guys.  I know someone out there has an extra account they're not using.  Make this happen.

It seems we've found the long 'third minus' printing, with the 4th printing cover but somehow retaining the 1st/2nd printing contents.  I'm still waiting for a L&L with Cthulhu, so I'll pass.  :roll:  Maybe we should make a "sellers who badly need to hear about Acaeum" thread...

Yep, I will pass too.

Perhaps we also need a thread showing sellers who should actually LOOK inside the books they sell, before stating something that is simply untrue.

Did anybody ask this schmuck about the descrepency?  I would gladly if it has not already been asked. :twisted:

Oh, nevermind, I'm doing it anyway. :roll:



Dear Seller,

  I was just reveiwing this auction on Ebay, and I happened to notice a major discrepency.  In your auction description, you list that this book is does in fact have the Cthulhu & Melnibonean Mythos within, but in the photo that you have provided, it is most certainly a later print that does not contain those Mythos. Could you please clarify the difference. Thanks for your time,

Brian

Well here is the follow up to my emailed question:

Dear bclarkie,



You asked:

"Dear Seller, I was just reveiwing this auction on Ebay, and I happened to notice a major discrepency. In your auction description, you list that this book is does in fact have the Cthulhu & Melnibonean Mythos within, but in the photo that you have provided, it is most certainly a later print that does not contain those Mythos. Could you please clarify the difference. Thanks for your time, Brian"



The pic is representative only(my camera is not working now). The book does indeed include the two mythos in question. Thanks for your interest.







So that I guess solves the mystery. :D

I am starting to think that the Coug' is actually a woman.  With the diapers coupon auctions and now this it just makes sense.  The most logical/obvious choice is usually the correct one.



Or.....maybe Cougar lost both his arms in a freak dolphin feeding accident and since he cannot type using a keyboard, has to use some kind of voice or eye-blinking interface to send emails, run his auctions, and other computer related skills.  This would explain the diapers.  He probably cant wipe himself.  This may also explain why he never posts on this board.  The interface isnt compatible with The Acaeum's software and all he gets are errors.  But he can probably read the posts and just not reply to them.  I can envision him sitting in his easy chair at home, sucking oatmeal (or some other liquidy food) through a straw and muttering to himself every few minutes about all "the bloody bastards" that keep making fun of him on the forum and how he is going to get even once he cleans up his shorts and makes up all the money he spent on all those H1's.



On the other hand, maybe he is an evil genius and just doesnt have time to visit us because he is too busy planning the end of western civilization.  Oh, wait.  Wrong person.  I was thinking of Maxwell.  :D
