wow, If you own the first 6, then getting hold of the rest isn't all that hard (I've had to hunt down all 18 just recently and only need to find Equal Rites and Sourcery now)
Numbers 10-18 are still in print and pretty cheap, then it's only 7, 8 and 9 that you'd need.
There are loads of no. 7 Pyramids around for about £15-£20 and no. 8 Guards Guards isn't too sparse yet (goes for about £20-£30) so it's just Eric that's rare and goes for about the £40-£50 mark

The first 6 rarely go for under £70 I've noticed (all of this is from scouring eBay by the way)

My only problem with the books is they're really fragile - I've had a few arrive with bent corners and dents... so they really need to be packed well when they're sent

Did anyone contact Paul Kidby re: additional books in the Unseen Library series? I'd be interested, too.

BCA is down to 7 titles: Moving Pictures, Reaper Man, Witches Abroad, Small Gods, Maskerade, Interesting Times, Soul Music. For the rest you'll have to search & shop.

Just a bit of a warning: I have found BCA to be very poor on customer service. And most of the bumping I've seen is because they pack and handle very poorly. Be prepared to return the ones you receive and ask for better copies if you buy from them.

I don't have an answer for you I'm afraid, NoCoolUserName - but welcome to the site. Hopefully someone here will be able to answer your question. :)

Hi NoCoolUserName I'm a bit Confucius Image about why would anyone contact Paul Kidby about Unseen Library series additional books. I Have obviously missed something here. :?

My library is suddenly hugely lacking...

I'd like to get afew, maybe of my favourite ones, nut the price is pretty steep for them, alhough they are leather bound, and someyimes signed. I'll probably get my favourite ones on ebay at some point, if only to say i have a few. :D

BTW sorry i've been away for a wee while. Exams and stuff, not so good.
