The Magic of Alan Wakeling

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but since it's about collecting I thought it might be.

http://www.amazon.com/The-Magic-Alan-Wa ... 0786718072

Can anyone explain the prices for these books? It doesn't make sense, especially the paperback version.

Re: We're Back From the Genii Bash!

Nice implication there. Do you HONESTYLY think we'd post all over the internet about helping a charity, and then pull the auctions a few days later?

If you do think that, then I'm sorry you think so cynically of us.

I'm seriously considering the lifetime Subscription. The hassle of not having to rememeber if I paid for this year or not, plus the bonuses will make it very worthwhile.
