My friends are so lame. Or maybe I'm just lame enough to be excited about a book on a friday night.

Oh that is a shame...but then again Facebook is not *MoM*...here you will find plenty of L O V E and envy for this treasure.
Lord... Where and how did you come by this???
I haven't seen one of these, covering this story...others yes... I even have a few covering some of her other stories... but not this on!

anyways... CONGRATULATIONS on such a wonderful find!!!


P.S. NOT LAME AT ALL

I am assuming this is the copy that was recently in eBay? In that case I am very glad is has found a good home! It's a shame inceed that nobody oicked it up for that price and I, for one, can be excited about it. Well done, Kindan.

That is the one on facebook. When I saw it at $10 I nearly fell over! The Crystal Singer series is the reason I'm into McCaffrey so this one was big for me. I see you run the same searches as I do.

Congrats kindan, a new book is always cause for celebration. Not lame at all! I don't have any uncorrected proofs. I like the red cover. I have read and reread the Crystal Singer series many times.

Someone just posted up an uncorrected proof of Damia for about the same price. I picked it up too. Weeee! A good week. Now I've seen the Crystal Singer itself as a proof but those are up in the $150+ range, too steep!

Kindan,I saw the Damian proof on eBay and was tempted, but figured you were the bidder on this one too. I'm glad you have this new addition for your collection.

Well thanks for not upping the bid

I've been trying to pick up the ARCs here and there as I see them (and they're not bank breaking). In addition to these two I have Skies of Pern and Dragon's Time. Some of the old ones go for $$$$$$! There can't be that many of us demanding them!
