Some near freebies

I'm down sizing my library ( ) and have the following to offer ...

Quote:
B. Aldis & Mike Wilks: “Pile (Petals from St Kaleds Computer)”, Methuen 1979 (1st UK HB);

I. Asimov: “Foundation and Empire”, Panther 1969 (1st UK PB);
“Second Foundation”, Panther 1969 (1st UK PB);
“Foundations Edge”, Panther 1983 (1st UK PB);
“Early Asimov 1”, Panther 1973;
“Early Asimov 2”, Panther 1974;
“Early Asimov 3”, Panther 1974;
“The Stars Like Dust”, Panther 19?? (1st UK PB);

{Most of these have the covers by Chris Foss}

Ed. J. Fairfax: “Frontier of Going”, Panther 1969(1st UK PB);

R. Heinlein: “The Day After Tomorrow”, NEL 1972 (1st UK PB);
“Starman Jones”, NEL 1976 (1st UK PB);

L. Niven: Ringworld”, Sphere 1973 (1st UK PB).
Except for "Pile" I'm happy to let these go for the cost of post & packing.

"Pile" = £2 + post & pack.

P'ter, I know Nick is a big Asimov fan, so I will see which of these he'd be interested in.

That sad to hear there P'ter, I can understand that! I still have a few at my dad's place in a coved box in a bad spot to get to. LOL

Just thought I see what you had to offer, and hope things are going OK for you and your kin.

I could be persuaded to take the Heinleins...

Those are two that I don't already have.

I would like to have the Heinleins, since my not-so-veiled hint went unnoticed.

How would you like to handle?

I'll find out p&p and PM it to you.

I think I've got your addy (somewhere) if I can't find it I'll tell you in the PM.

If the price is right I'll send them to you and you can reimburse me.

I've found that cash folded into an envelope within another envelope seems to work for the smallish amount involved. I'm happy with dollars.

P & P to the states works out at $15 including padded bag and insurance.

I do have your addy.

As yet, I'm not set up for it. Which is why I don't sell on ebay.

I'm happy with paper money.

PM me your address so I can mail you your money, then!

@ Shalyn: did I ever PM you my addy?

I can pay by Paypal now, I don't know about receiving payments.


Added to list (recently aquired):

Dragondrums (Corgi mpb 1st ed, 2nd printing 1981, ISBN 0 552 11804 4) condition fair to good;

Masterharper of Pern (Bantam tpb 1st ed 1998, ISBN 0 593 04293 X) condition good (some spine creasing).

P'ter,

Yes, you gave me your addy.

I've just been overly busy...and haven't been to the bank to get cold hard cash! I do everything by debit card now, so don't usually have any.

I'll get it to you one of these days, I promise. I'm just an extremely good procrastinator.
