He already did that once before, in trade for a book I had for him

I'd even be happy if someone (Golder? Gidget?) bought me NEW ones; and I'd also be happy to send them the money first.

Hans, have you tried the French amazon? It looks like L'aube des dragons is available. Unfortunately it says that the other two are 'actuellement indisponible'. Hope you find them.

Which German books are you looking for? There are hardly any Anne McCaffrey books in bookstores near me; I think I have only seen 3 books, and that was in the comics shop that also sells fantasy and sci-fi books. I have seen that they have a lot of Anne McCaffrey books on the German amazon, although, I haven't tried reading her books in German yet. It might be cheaper for you to order them on the German amazon, than for me to buy them on amazon.de and then send them to you. I'll of course help you if I can, just let me know.

Not looking for the new ones; those I can order through the net indeed. So, no good secondhand bookshop where you are?

There are a couple of antiquarian bookshops, so if you let me know which ones are missing in your collection, and how much you are willing to pay for them, and in what condition, I will look for them for you. It is always fun to go book hunting in such shops.

Reading this made me wish that I had a few french books for you Hans. We have quite a few used book stores around us that we go to often. But they are only English, but I would help if I could!
