Default Nebula Award Stories Three

One of the few older anthologies that is missing in my Pern short story sub-collection is this book:



Nebula Award Stories Three, edited by Roger Zelazny. It's the oldest in a series of book with this title (with sometimes slight variations), published in 1968 by Doubleday & Co. It contains the short story Weyr Search.

If you happen to see one or if there's one in your attic, or in the one of your neighbours or friends, grab it and sell it to me please

I found this one in an attic, too... the author's attic So it wasn't to be mine.

Hi Hans,

I have got the possiblity to buy this:

Nebula Award Vol. 3 1970 (5)

(5) is the worst condition but should be ok for collecting.

Would you like it?

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."

Nina, I would need to know how it looks; condition 5 doesn't mean anything to me. I would go by your judgement but only if you have personally seen it.

Also, are you sure it is this book, because there are several books with the same title and it needs to be the 1968 Doubleday hardcover because I've already got the others.

Great

It'll give you a copy of the original Weyr Search story.
