Hi, I'm thinking about buying a copy of Anne Inez McCaffrey: 40 Years of Publishing, An International Bibliography. By Mathew D. Hargreaves.

Does anyone have one?
How much do you want for it?

Congrats!

The supplementary edition is harder to get a hold of, and generally priced above it's worth.

Yes, congrats! I got mine a couple of weeks ago and I love it! My hubby is not a fan, as I told him it is the book that was going to teach me about all the other books I need to buy! Heh Heh!

It's a beautiful work of love, a great book. And keep your eyes open Jube, cause it seems to have been down on price somewhat the past year or so, which is always nice.

Haven't seen the "two years" supplement in ages.

That 2 more years thing comes up on ebay about every other month or so. You shouldn't have that hard a time finding it.

Not a hard time, finding it.....hmmm.....it would seem that although I have no trouble with other AMC books, this one is not currently listed unless someone knows something, I don't. Not listed under AMC or Hargreaves. But I shall continue looking

Which ebay are you finding it on Mouse? The USA one? I've never even seen it on there. Maybe I'm searching wrong.

You're not the only one, Dragonbuddy. I've written in so many possibilities that it keeps popping up with "there is ....... with 249 listings, followed by ....... with 3 listings, then ..... with 56 listings". By the time one has gone through each menu, the eyeballs are popping out AND yes I've utilized the US and local versions of ebay and yes I know one can find bargains (Samsara having found 2 great books as an example lately, springs to mind - congrats on those ones!) BUT at the moment sellers are hiding them in treasure chests, it would seem SO if one of the cherubs that pop up here on MoM are willing to help, please send either Dragonbuddy or myself a pm as we'd be very grateful for the help? I for one would be eternally grateful for some help so please with a cherry on top, if anyone is willing to help, PLEASE?

I've had to resort to using one of Cheryl's choices as per reply #2 but it hasn't arrived and I think there's at least another week or so before it'll arrive because we had a public holiday on Australia Day.

Mouse, I want to know too so please kindly list because it seems unfair that you know but we don't. Any help would be gratefully accepted.

Mouse probably uses the regular US eBay (.com). It is true that that version often shows more items than others because, despit you ticking the "worldwide" box in your own eBay, the items offered by sellers who stpulate on their seller's form that they don't ship overseas=outside USA, will NOT be showing in any other eBay version. So it is a good trick to look at the seperate country's URL's/eBay versions (but I have said that before).

Despite that I disagree, and have disagreed, with Mouse on availability of certain items (on eBay), but that's just a difference of opinion, nothing more than that. There's aways the chance she saw something that was gone without an hour or a day... and not there when I looked.

Also, a good tip is to not forget eBay's www.half.ebay.com
why that site exists I don't know, but it regularly has items not listed on the eBay auction site.

and, of course, look on bookfinder.com for an idea of prices before bidding on eBay Maybe you'll decide to mail a bookseller there to mail a picture!

Jube said that she's tried that trick with half.com and said that one needs a USA address and that kind of sucks - sorry, that's her words - when she went looking the other day and hasn't got around to asking her sister for help yet. I think that's why she went with bookfinder or abebooks or something to get it. Won't know until I see her later or she can get on and say where. Whatever but she was moaning about something along those lines.
