    That's cool.
    Just wondering, what would be a "fair" value for that book?

    Fair value for S/L Skeleton Crew would be >$500. Probably $600.

    Wow, that's some amazing "awesome deals" out there! Mine would be a Father Cody 'Salem's Lot for $3 at a college book sale (Gettysburg College in PA). It has a crease on the cover, some chipping on the spine, and a magic marker write-out on the title page, but other than that it's in good condition. I'd say that that was an "awesome deal"! Still can't believe it was just sitting on the table when I found it!

    I picked up a copy of the Phantasia Press edition of William Gibson's Neuromancer a year or so ago. The seller said it had a slipcase, but wasn't the signed edition. Once it arrived, I checked the back, to see a very nice signature and number.... I certainly didn't mind paying an eighth of the going price for the signed/limited.

    Think I got a pretty good deal on this. Brand new condition, including chapbook. Still in original shrinkwrap. $17.50 + $4.19 shipping.

    Paid $5.00 for a 1st/1st EOTD that is VG, no fading and very minimal shelf wear to the jacket. The book itself is almost like new!

    Looks like your streak of good luck is continuing.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    I am guessing that it was a BIN offer, as I do not see any bids?

    The company where I work has not been paying what my contract says for almost a year already. It's always on the verge of being solved and the money I'm owed paid, but something ALWAYS happens that delays all. And after I returned from my holidays and I asked about news, I was told that due to my complains on the matter some people have been considering firing me. In the meantime, someone wanted to remove me from a project I designed and developed that's going to be shared with the board (a training software that basically removes the need of having people training new data collectors). I'm still considering my options...

    As for your work situation... I hope that it get sorted properly very soon.

    If they fire you because of your ‘complaining’ about them breaching the contract they have with you, I would say you have good grounds for a hefty lawsuit. Either way, that sucks, sorry to hear it.
