I have a copy of Starfaring - an early, August 1976, game by Ken St. Acnre published by flying buffalo.   My copy is stapled  Most copies I have seen are spiral bound.    According to RPGNet   8-1/2" x 11" spine-stapled booklet. Black on red cover by E. Hogan. Copies which are spiral bound with pink covers are unauthorized reprints (per Rick Loomis of Flying Buffalo).
Do any of our members know anything about this?

Hello Old Timer ;-)

If you go to page 20 of the "Interesting Non-TSR Items Currently on eBay", you will see a few posts about Starfaring, just in case the link below does not work.

Thanks,

I hadn't looked at this for over 20 years and wasn't aware of the difference until I saw both types for sale as 1st editions.

Hi Old Timer,

Too funny that you asked about Starfaring and then there are two (2) new listings on eBay ;-) I am amazed how often that happens.  8O

Weird... Less than one year ago i spotted several of these books listed in UK for less that 50 pounds and they were not sold immediately... Is it possible that one year later and on the other side of the Atlantic price has a similar lever?
