Movement in the right direction…

The Macbook is getting closer.  I’ve been waiting a long time to have my very own computer again – a whole year!!

Also, yesterday I picked up editor Judith Merril’s SF’57 off eBay.  It’s a copy that’s been kicking around there for a while and the price has dropped during that time to about half what it was originally listed at.  I got it for $12.  It looks to be in Good condition, and at that price, a pretty good deal I thought.  A copy of Travelers of Space with a Fine jacket together with a jacketless Five Science Fiction Novels (both edited by Martin Greenberg) went for $103 on eBay today.  Wow.  I have both books, Five Science Fiction Novels in better condition with a jacket (see the Close Up) and my copy of Travelers of Space is also in Fine condition (it hasn’t made it to the blog yet but it’s in similar condition to my copy of SF’56).  This puts me in good heart as to the value of the copies I have.  Especially as the jacket of Travelers was noted in the auction to be ‘married to the book,’ whatever that means.

  1. Means the seller got an unused dj (probably from Don grant) and put it on a dj-less hardcover which didn’t look very good indeed… The mysteries of Ebay!

    • I didn’t know that. So ‘married’ in this context means a book with a dj it wasn’t originally issued with?

      • Yep! 😉 unused dj with book that lost its dj somewhere in time… Actually bought a few of those from Don Grant for my Fantasy Press collection. But for books that were still near mint… Also did that for my 5 copies of kinsmen of the Dragon… Silly me!
