Don't worry about it. Explore away. Thread resurrection is fine by me :)

I think I've moved 4 times since that thread started, including once interstate, and once across the Tasman sea.

I'd second pretty much everything Urulöké has written.

I see a very slow market where sellers haven't yet accepted that prices have essentially collapsed and there are simply very few active buyers. No one is in any hurry to sell (so asking prices often have not adjusted) and no one is in any hurry to buy, so items are not selling unless the seller has adjusted the price accordingly. I can't see much changing, other than sellers will gradually reduce asking prices and more books will start to come back onto the market. Without new movies, there probably won't be a resurgence in collecting interest to the level we saw in the early-mid 2000s.

Overall, I see this as a positive. We will eventually return to a sane and balanced market and it will cease to be driven by hype and the desire to make a fast buck.

Saw this on Reddit. I hadn't really considered that errors would still be getting introduced. I expect the core text is fairly safe and unmucked about with by printers, these days.

I am struggling with a defence on this one, but as a description of an illustration it is not part of the core text, which has safeguards hopefully to stop changes like this happening.

Why it was changed is quite a mystery as it was correct in the first place?

I have informed HarperCollins of the error and hope it is rectified as soon as possible, they have responded and they are aware of the issue and investigating how it happened!


Yeah, I emailed as well when I saw it, but I suspect my emails just get filed to trash, so I should probably just leave it to you...!
