Hi folks,
I'm curious, why is this book so hard to find? I've only seen it on Noble Knights priced at $65.00. Couldn't find any eBay auctions, past or present.

Cheers,
Chris

I believe he's referring to the book released through Troll Lord Games along with Cosmos Builder, Insidae, etc. The one in that auction had nothing to do with Gary.

I thought I'd seen them listed before, but haven't really been paying attention.

EDIT: Ninja'd!!

Amazon for half that:  http://www.amazon.com/Gary-Gygaxs-World ... 93127522X/



Retail was $30.  I'd think you'd be able to get one for $15-20 with some patience.  I don't know about this book specific, that's sort of a generic estimate.

Now I remember seeing that before.

If at Amazon for under $30, one would indeed think it could be found for around half as much on e-Bay... eventually.

NKG is not always so much higher is it... wonder what the deal is there?

RIght, the Gygax version published by TLG. I saw you can buy it on Amazon for under $30 but also so some crazy prices like over $100.00! I was curious because I have a NM copy and couldn't tell what a reasonable expected value would be on eBay. Thanks for your responses.  :)
