Not quite the holy grail of discworld fandom but i managed to get a copy of the USA book club 1984 edition of Colour of Magic with the Alan Smith cover in fine condition with a dustcover in great condition for around £20 delivered. Can't believe the price. Much cheaper than even the Facsimile they did recently. Bloody Bargain. :D

Well done getting them for that price.

I want those as well. I have two, but someone spilt a liquid beverage on them, I did get both for 25p, I know, but I would like decent copies.
Best wishes,

I just picked up a first edition hardback of Robert Rankin's Toyminator from Poundland. They only had one copy left in the Cardiff branch, but you might find it in your local Poundland. :D



(Yes chris.ph - it was a pound. :P )

Found ISWM hardback 1st edition in a charity shop it was not due to go on sale so I paid £3.00 and got it now or it would have been £2 if I had waited for it but someone may have got there before me so it was worth the extra £1.00. :D

Some good finds there guys! I saw a first edition hardback of Nation in a charity shop the other day for £1.50. But it was the American edition and I didn't really need to get it. Hopefully someone who doesn't have a copy will pick it up. :wink:
