Default Harper Hall Trilogy

If this thread is repeating a previous conversation, my apologies. I haven't been online in ages and seem to have completely lost touch with what's happening in MoM (I still think of it as the KT, so... you get the picture)

Here's my question: does anybody know if there's a single volume edition of the Harper Hall Trilogy? Because that is something I would love to have.

What with the DRoP omnibus, On Dragon Wings, 1 vol edition of Crystal, The Planet Pirates and other such single-volume collections, I'm assuming there must be a single-volume edition of the harpers somewhere, or at least in production? But I don't know if the fact that I'm in Australia (and the distribution and industry is notoriously complicated and difficult) is why I haven't come across this edition, or if it simply doesn't exist... yet.

And if it doesn't exist: gross oversight, I must say.

Anyone out there know something more definite about this? Or even (*gasp!*) where I might get my hands on one?

Thanks!

It does exist, but I think it may only be as a US bookclub edition. I'll check on that later tonight for you.

An online used bookstore or ebay will be the easiest places to get your hands on one, since it's not sold new in stores.

It's still available through the Science Fiction Book Club. Don't know if they ship to Australia though. I just bought it for a family member. Item number is 827552 and it's priced at 12.99 USD for members.

There is definitely a Sci-Fi Book Club edition. I'm a fan of omnibuses--multiple books in one convenient package. I also rather like the dust jacket picture. I dont' have it here in Mass so I can't check the edition or anything.

She can't buy direct from SCFB as she resides in Aus, though.

You guys are awesome, as usual!
Forgot how much I love it here. Hopefully now that I'm done with the studies I'll be able to stop by regularly.


Thanks for the tip in the SFBC, I'll see if I can get someone in the US to buy it for me and then mail it to me. I'll be moving to mexico in about two months, does the SFBC deliver there?

Thanks again, you're all lovely!

The Harper Hall tirlogy is regularly offered on eBay, so if you can buy from there, Khanath, your problem is solved.
