Still haven't managed to pick up a CSWE at a "sensible" price, here. :?

Can't go far wrong with the usual recommendations, IMO; viewtopic.php?t=1267

Yeah, from one of my pics; not that I was ever a fan of waving cameras around the cats.

Strange what I can find in these ol' folders, though...

Kitty with good taste? ;)

Yep; though I'm struggling to stay on-topic, now, tiggy! :)

Happy hunting on that other JG material & good luck to the players if they haven't yet tried Tegel ;)

Here is a Dark Tower auction for you.  "Near Mint" is a bit of a stretch, but the price might be right.   8O  :)

   BTW, I got my two copies of Dark Tower for $9.95 and $5.00.  The first was on Amazon.com and the second was an Ebay auction.

"Condition is Mint. This issue is bagged". I wonder why... Image



(Maybe if I ask them, they'll tell me that's actually a stock image! Image)





Thanks for the smile! :D

What? If it wasn't for that very obvious staining(and disgusting looking) all over the cover, the moderate staple rusting, all of those dog-eared pages on the bottom corner there, and lord only know what is going on in the inside there, that sucker is mint. :roll:  Gawd if that thing is mint, I would really hate to see what Near Mint looks like.  :x

Both, of course.  :D

Depends on the difference in cost, really. If it's any kind of substantial difference, playable suits me just fine.

You can buy a downoad copy for $2 IIRC. Someone here may know where from. It'll be good enought to read and play until you get a minty copy for the collection.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

this is a *bump* for this topic, but also to mention relating to Jasonw's Dark Tower that he has listed in the classifieds....

i have had a fair few dark towers and in varying conditions. that one seems pretty good and with you mentioning the staples but not showing a pic, might have deterred a collector from bidding. that said, most collectors prb wouldnt bid on it until about the last 5 seconds.

imo i think the opening bid was quite high $15. thats higher than i have seen a few of them sell for! though normally they would sell for higher, but a high start price can sometimes put ppl off.

not only this, having a "0" newb open the bidding isnt exactly what peeps like to see either....

but hey there ya go...discussion underway.

seems a decent copy for a 1st print.

Good points Al,

For those that might be interested here is a view of the spine showing the staples. As mentioned in my eBay writeup it is a patina, and not a crust  :)

The inside pages are very nice and bright and the pages pass my sniff test  :lol:
(no musty smell, etc.).
