Default Duplicate books......

Hello Everyone

I have some extra copies of Anne McCaffrey books if anyone is looking for them:

Dragonsong - UK 1st Edition (I believe) hardcover but it is a withdrawn from circulation library copy "SPOKEN FOR"

Dragonsong - US Hardcover large print (16pt) "SPOKEN FOR"

Dragonsinger - US Hardcover 4th printing "SPOKEN FOR"

The People of Pern - US Paperback "SPOKEN FOR"

The Dragonlover's Guide to Pern - US Paperback "SPOKEN FOR"

Let me know, I am not charging anything for these books. I would rather see them go to someone that appreciates Anne McCaffrey's wonderful writing instead of giving them to a used book store or good will.

Well, that is very gracious of you, Solitary.

You have a paperback of The People of Pern? If yes, it is a binding unknown for me for this book and I would gladly buy it. If it is a hardcover I'd be interested in it if it is a non-bookclub edition.

Hello Hans - The People of Pern is the soft cover (paperback) version. I am working on getting a picture of the book cover for each to put here but this morning........photobucket decided not to cooperate

I must admit I have the hardback in my collection too, Solitary. But I'm a collector of all Pern (related) books in all states and I don't have a PoP paperback!

I will gladly buy the paperback from you. If you do want to give them away free then let me at least pay the cost of postage from you to The Netherlands, so it won't cost you anything.

Something about that Dragonsinger cover just "strikes" me. I would be happy to buy it as well, or at least send you postage. I'm here in the US, if you're interested you can PM me for address. Or, if you have room in your luggage perhaps you could bring it to Albacon? That is just a thought, and perhaps mailing is easier, rather than taking up space you'll need for things you want at the convention? This is very generous of you, by the way!

Didn't realize you did not have a copy of that softcover PoP. I don't know about elsewhere, but here, there used to be a bookclub that published all hardcovers in paperback form. *shrug* I have one, I thought they were just common.

the DLG - is it the original publication or the "DLG-2" - the updated version? Because I'd love to have it if it's the updated version.

Judging by the cover, it's the DLG2. You can tell from the green border, as opposed to a yellow one on the original DLG. See (tiny) pictures of each cover at the top of this page.
