I'd be interested if the quality, price, production location, limitatation and content were right. I'm not sure I'd be interested in £350 / 500 copies, especially if the content is really just an aggregation of already published material with a bit of connecting filler (which may or may not be the case).

I still think the CoH SD is a wonderful book, but it was overpriced. S&G was flawed, but still has merit, though overpriced and FAR too many copies.

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.
