Whatever the print run, they seem to be popular :-)

Holy crap!

I was sent three contributor copies from Chaosium.

I should sign one and put it for auction! Maybe with the printout of the 1st draft with all of my editing notes...

I've been watching none_more_black's auctions off and on for a while.  He seems to specialise in the monographs, and they almost always go for more than the Chaosium list price (even the still in print ones).

I don't know whether it's just that shipping them to the UK is prohibitive for most people, or if people just don't know the actual price, or what.

Up to $56 now and still an hour to go. He does do rather well, doesn't he?

I am thoroughly stunned by that auction.
The book is available through the online Chaosium catalog for $15 + shipping.

Unless there are some UK eBayer's that will only purchase from UK sellers.

$15, good joke! SHHHHHHUSH, already!

I think it's the, "Ooh, I haven't seen that one before", effect. Or else it was you bidding under several aliases. 'Fess up.

:D  If only it was that easy to drive up the value of items that you intend to sell

I think I'll go with my original plan of listing one of my contributor copies along with the 1st draft with edit notes.
Might interest a few people...  :wink:
