Condition: Binding - very good, slight spine lean, slight edgewear, light front and rear cover hinge creases, one spine reading crease, insides of covers browning a little around the edges, pages tanning around the edges. Dust Jacket - none, as issued.

Note on first editions:

If this book is listed as a first edition, it will also be a first printing. We do not consider later printings to be first editions.

We know the difference between a publisher's edition and a book club edition and will always disclose book club editions. If we aren't sure, we will so indicate.

Note on condition descriptions:

In our written descriptions we use the standard professional bookseller's condition grading on our items (fine, near fine, very good, good, poor).

We believe that you deserve to know exactly what you will be getting if you buy our item. We describe each item carefully. If the condition description doesn't mention a remainder mark or ex-library markings, they do not exist.

No hidden reserve on auction items. If you bid our starting price and are the only bidder, the item is yours.

See our other auction and store items for lots of autographed first edition and collectible books. We specialize in Science Fiction and Fantasy but also have general fiction, mystery and nonfiction. We usually have over 400 autographed Easton Press books available for purchase.


We accept all forms of PayPal Payment. Unless a delay in payment is agreed to by us before purchase, payment is expected within 48 hours of our sending an invoice. Buyers taking more than 48 hours to pay without that agreement will not receive feedback.

Note:Paying with a PayPal echeck (bank or other financial institution transfer) will delay shipping until PayPal informs us that the transfer has completed. This can take 4 or 5 days for US banks (occasionally longer) and up to 2 weeks for international (usually more like 11 days). Payment by PayPal funds or credit card gets immediate shipping.

Shipping and Packing: General Information:

We always ship in sturdy new boxes with premium heavy duty packing tape, bubblewrap and filler to keep the item away from the sides of the box, unless requested otherwise.

Click on the 'Shipping and payments' tab near the top of this item to see the options and costs for shipping this item to your location. The different shipping options we use are described below.

All shipments will include delivery confirmation. Shipments valued at $250 and over will have to be signed for where that shipping option is available (all US and some international destinations).

If the item will be shipped to a California address, please see the note below on California Sales Tax.

We are happy to combine shipping on multiple items and will charge you only a small amount over the actual postage cost to pay for packaging materials. Please wait for us to invoice you before paying for multiple items.

A Note On Customs:

When customs forms are required for a shipment, we fill them out honestly, stating that the contents are merchandise and giving the price you paid for the item (not including the shipping) as the value. Please do not ask us to do otherwise. Take any customs duty that you will have to pay into consideration before making your purchase.

Please note that many countries have restrictions on the import of certain goods and sometimes on the maximum value that can be shipped to the country by various shipping methods. Priority Mail International insurance cannot be purchased for all countries and some limit the amount of insurance that can be purchased (default indemnity coverage seems to apply to all countries). Click on the link below and then click on the number that comes after your country name to review the details for shipping to your destination.

International shipping details by country

Shipping History:

We have shipped well over 3,000 packages (containing more than 5,700 items), with more than 500 of those packages going to international destinations, since we started selling on in 2002 (Click here to see where we've shipped). As of September 16, 2009, we have had only five packages reported as lost, three to U.S. destinations and two to international destinations (Australia and Spain - destinations we have also shipped to successfully many times). We have not had a report of a book damaged in transit since shortly after we started selling (it took us a couple of damaged shipments to learn not to pack books in boxes that were too tight a fit).

California Sales Tax

Items shipped to addresses outside California are not subject to sales tax.

Unless you are a reseller with a valid California Seller's Permit buying this item to resell, we are required by California law to collect sales tax for all items shipped to or delivered to addresses in California or picked up from our location.

The checkout system cannot handle the complexities of sales tax in California where the sales tax rate varies by where the item is being delivered. We have setup the shipping calculator to charge sales tax at 9.00% for those who do not want to wait for us to invoice you. If you wait for our invoice, we will adjust the sales tax to be correct for the location you say we will be shipping to.

California resellers need to provide us with your permit number before we can remove the sales tax from your invoice.
