  2. I have #33; I want #53. And no, I will not trade. 🙂

    I’m a dead-tree reader myself, but one of the advantages that I see to e-books is that they never need be out of print. Or abridged.

    • Yeah. As long as the cloud company stays in business. Or you don’t drop the kindle/nook/whatever in the bathtub…

  3. Ricky Jay is one of my personal heroes. I have a copy of “Cards As Weapons” somewhere; I need to find it and put it with my other Ricky Jay books.

    I do not advocate piracy.

    That being said, “Cards as Weapons” is available on Scribd.

    I’m a little shocked by #30: I actually transcribed that book from a copy of Dick’s manuscript, and wrote an afterward to it. But that was a long time ago, in another country, and besides the wench is dead.

    I also own #33, but that’s not a huge shock: anything with Elmer Keith’s name on it seems to go out of print fast and has a lot of demand.

    I knew #56 was going for high prices, but is there really that much pent-up interest in the SMU scandal? (It is a darn good book.)
