When I tell you guys to buy-buy-BUY my books as soon as they come out (or before, pre-orders are like karmic gold, I tell ya), I'm not kidding. Take a look at this eBay auction for a first-edition of the 2007 version of ANCESTOR, back when it was published by Dragon Moon Press. Home-slice wants $200 for this sucker, and you know what? He'll get it. It's the going rate.

So pre-order early, pre-order often. If you think $200 for an old small-press paperback of ANCESTOR is crazy, wait three years to see what hardcover ROOKIEs and STARTERs are going for. I predict $500 for first-printing, at least, and that's if you can find them.

Remember, the ANCESTOR hardcover is $24.99. On Amazon pre-order? Just $16.99. Buy one for you, one for a friend. If you don't have any friends, this will solve that problem.

$198.21 home slice must be in retail to come up with that #

why not a nice round number?

Just FYI

one of our fellow Junkies snagged a proof copy of what I'm assuming is the rewrite of Ancestor on ebay. I would encourage all Junkies to let Scott or A know if you see any additional proof copies floating around out there on the internets, as Scott was very adamant about his consultants deleting or destroying any proof they work on to prevent just this kind of thing from happening. We need to nip this in the bud.

BTW, I'm not gonna give anything away here, but I will say that you guys are gonna LOVE the rewrite. Scott really amped things up without changing the basic story.

I was just on ebay yesterday

Looking for that very thing. I have seen them as cheap as $88, which is still too much. But $200 is out of control. I can't wait for my copy - my bookshelf only has three Sigler books on it right now. :(

Holy Wow

That's insane. And awesome. I guess, technically, it's insanely awesome.

Sigler retirement plan?

Hell at that kind of mark up maybe I should Cash out my 401k and buy sigler novels. The return on investment is probably significantly better than the stock market...

of course I'm no investment banker but I think this is the best way to invest in my future...

Yep....

Woodysbooks has an extensive on-line bookstore.  He has sold several of Scotts books.  You'll find him on Amazon.

It would be nice

to own an original, however for that chunk of change I'll wait until June and make sure we make the NY times bestseller list.

If one of the FDO's books could get me $200 ...

... I wonder what I could get for a tooth or an ear?  What?  Isn't that what everyone is thinking?  Really?  Just me?  Uh ... yeah ... just kidding!  Yay pre-orders!

My Ancestor paperback

I purchased my Ancestor paperback from an Amazon seller for $32. I purchased it less than a year ago.

It might be hard for the FDO to autograph a kidney ...

... but I'm sure a Sharpie pen would write rather well on skin or a tooth.

I've been looking everywhere

I want both an original Ancestor and Earthcore - just need to find something I can manage.  I was excited to preorder when the announcement was made; but damn is it a long time to wait!!!

Which reminds me of an eBay auction several years ago

True story, I was crawling around eBay about 5 years ago and came across an auction for an Alice Cooper toenail clipping encased in a cube of Lucite. Apparently someone worked at a hotel where Alice was staying and found it in his room after he left and had it encased in plastic.  No way to prove it, of course, but still, "it" was on the auction block.

Just sayin'...

2 questions

1.  How much did they get?

2.  Does anyone know where the FDO is staying in Australia?

2 Answers (sorta)

1.  Not sure, but it did get 6 bids.  The link to the eBay listing is on fark.com, which says it was waaaaay back in 1999. Wow, I thought it was just a few years ago.

2.  Heh-heh-heh, couldn't say.  But you can start planning ahead here:  http://www.tapplastics.com/shop/product.php?pid=75

What about Earthcore

No one Aussie book store can help me get a copy, any ideas?

On Edited

You make me smile

And I I don't mean that nicely. LMFAO No wonder you don't sell cars anymore, if that's your best sell.... :)  OK I'll pre-order; I've got everything else, so why not.

Hmm

Would a dried up kidney work better?

ARC

FDO,

I purchased an ARC copy of Ancester on E-Bay a few weeks back. I am a collector and I only collect what I love so I thought this would be cool to add to my collection. I never sell what I collect and I would never want to piss off the FDO so I am willing to send this copy to you in good faith. I have everything in print, at the moment by the master and I will be purchasing The Starter 4/1 at noon sharp! I have pre-ordered Ancester and will purchase any book that is published from here on out. Including trades and any Mass Market stuff. I became a Junkie last year and I can't get enough Sig!

Let me know,

Junkie Steve

This brings up a question...

What will be the currency when the FDO takes over?
