    I know jemaher (TDT member) was looking to complete the #263 set — I've learned Strand Books has DTII & DTIII. I don't believe jemaher has posted in a while so if they're still interested, perhaps someone can reach out.

    More info in the Google doc on this particular copy and, of course, a whole bunch of others. Would love to see some additions to the doc from other TDT members, too!

    I wonder if anyone has ever been successful in matching a set piecemeal? (and if so what was the original quantity of same number books started with?)

    It seems to be impossible, lol.

    Heck, I doubt I will ever be able to even afford the price of a DT I

    I'm sure there are several who've been able to, some of them TDT.org members. I'm on the hunt to complete a PC set. Never would've even considered it had I not been able to find DT1 first. Now that I have it, I've also been able to obtain DTII (PC) and DTIII (PC). Have leads on the rest of the set except for DTIV.

    I did mine piecemeal. Every time Grant published one I bought it and that month I didn't have enough money left to buy even a piece of a meal. Good way to diet.

    Actually, when DT 1 was released I vacillated about whether or not to have my brother send for one. I thought, "Nah! There are 500 copies! Who would want another one anyway?" And then L.W. Currey sent me a postcard, saying he had one coming, but apologizing that he'd have to charge me $85 for it. I thought, "$85! Is he kidding!? That's WAY too much!" The sad news about this tale of woe is I still haven't become any wiser.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    My #296 set I put together the "hard way:...I had book 4 #296 and Marianne Fontanna listed 1-3 #296 on ABE somewhat later so I bought them, resistered #296 as mine and I got the rest as they were published.
    Captain, Road Prison 36 : What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.

    Dragline : Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
    Luke : Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand
