Wouldn't be the first time you've bid on a 'US Only' auction, heh? :lol:

I think you two are being overly expectant of pristine 1st GHs whilst tolerant of stomped on woodgrains (which are more common by a factor of 6-1 or thereabouts).
Does not compute, IMHO! ;)

Heh. If you wanted 'shagged' (or should that be 'used as intended'?);

aww... sorry! ;)

I doubt you'd want to sell it, anyhow, so let's just say 'ungraded'. :)

4 days to go.

Thx. :roll:

Good grief, that went cheap.... :?


Just got back from a few days away.  A big thanks to Mike for a UK proxy bid. :D Hope this turns out better than that MM he bid on for me.

   What a beautiful book.  I love these grizzled veterans of the Psychic Wars.  I wonder why it has extra, reverse staples in the spine?  Surely, a great warrior of old.

*yay*. Thanks, Mark! :)

Well, like I said those Lake Geneva printings tend to have their middle pages falling out by default (hence that comment re. no great fault (IMO) for the recent 1st GH, above).

As to the latter, alas Jim Ward didn't add quite as much as I'd've liked to have seen by way of annotation. :(
But you can feel that it was right in there, in the thick of the action. :D

Neat! You deserve a break after that, John...

   That was James Ward's book.  Nice.

   I have met the man.  I suspect he used it to game.

   Interesting stories he has:

   He told me that he first met Gary Gygax in a bookstore when he noticed this other guy who was buying all the same books as he was.

   I think pristine books are overrated.  Probably the saddest line on Ebay reads:  "Never read."

We can get Jim to come to the Lake Geneva convention, and I'm sure he'll scribble all you want.

Oh, so very, very tempting, Frank! :D

Cheap, later S&S in nice condition

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8797428423

$5 (+ only $2 postage) with 15 hours to go



Later GH, BLK and a potentially interesting Eldritch, again in nice condition

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8796334727

$34 with 23 hours to go

(Remember, it's easier to ask how many staples there are visible in the centre of the book ;))



SW paradise (or hell? :lol:)

eBay listings

15+ hours to go and some prices still very reasonable (even for non-SW phps!)

I did not recognize the bidder. Is the current bidder a Forum member? I have tried to make sure and not post items where the current high bidder is a Forum member.

6 seconds, actually... ;)

Yeah, that's the 'trouble'! I'd passed that one (and a few other similar items) along a few days ago for people to snipe on, just in case they hadn't been spotted by all-and-sundry.
Not that I don't want to see the seller get a decent price, of course, even though it's only a so-so copy of a (perhaps?) somewhat overvalued item. :)

Woohoo!  Stick it to 'em, Marlith!  :lol:   Snipers do not give any quarter; they should not expect any, either.  If your name ain't on the bidding list, you really can't cry foul.

And no quarter given or asked, even for those whose names are on the bidding list!
*reminds self to re-check Deimos's current bids*

Yeah, half the fun is surely trying to guess whether someone's going to be posting those 'interesting items' on here, or not? :P

Heh.  Sadly, I haven't got anything major on my radar at the moment.  It's been a slow couple of weeks for those of us out of the "woodgrain" league.  :wink:
