Thought I said "go for", not "($) worth". ;)

Those are somewhat rarer than the original TBHs, tbh: strongly suspect there was only one print of each, whilst the others were still being reprinted through those dates.
(Mike might still know the answer to that, if anyone managed to obtain his email address whilst he graced us with his presence...).

well i offered her what i thought was a fair price anyway and was accepted right away so both parties very happy - which is the main thing i think.

what do they normally go for ? i think i have only seen 26 - dont think i have ever seen the others.

That was the latest single issue, yes. In which case you'll remember the price that went for. ;)
(Rather too high, IMHO).

Well, it certainly ain't comparable with both parties being "very happy" with $50 for an instant woodgrain sale. ^^

I'm really going to have to dig those issues out again at some point; have been wanting to read them several times, recently. There is another box here, somewhere, and I recently found the list of 'zines I had towards the end of uni (i.e. after a few dozen had "walked"). Should have about half the TASs, too. Definitely still "good stuff", IIRC.

Speaking of Beholder I just posted a link to an auction with #6 in it. It is mixed in with three other zines so it can't show a true issue price but with proper exposure it might give someone an idea as to value.

Probably won't help since it's the second-least "valuable" item in that bundle.

Now, the only decision is whether I should bother posting  twenty "interesting items" on /two/ threads to cover this up, or not? ^^

as there were no bids at the very early time, i didnt deem there to be a problem, so went for it!

yes indeed i am VERY happy with these. print version doesnt matter. i would just like 1 of each issue released.

just letting y'all know that these arrived this morning. i am VERY happy with them lemme tell you yoohoo! my god the package was something even BTB would be proud of. was so secure it took me 10 mins to get into the flaming thing!!

Chuffed. Right. British slang.

We Americans never use slang, of course.

Savvy?

i like it JH very funny :)

chuffed adj. Someone who describes themselves as being chuffed is generally happy with life. You can also get away with saying you are unchuffed or dischuffed if something gets your back up. Make sure you only use this word in the correct tense and familiarise yourself with the meaning of the word chuff too.

:D

As in, for instance, when I got my signed and mint copy of The Compleate Tavern, I was "chuffed," until I found out that there were cardstock maps that went with the original.
