RARA-AVIS: tears in my beer

Due to the rara-avis list, my interest in books has now stretched beyond the admittedly tremendous selection of in-print books available at barnes and noble or borders.

Many of the books I am interested in now are out of print. Can I still get them? Yes. At a good price? Thats iffy, Joy. I got two old Gores titles delivered to me for under
$5 apiece, but I had to pay $15 for an old Peter Rabe tune,
_The Box_. And I'd like to get a collection of essays that has a Bill Crider article in it. Only problem is they want over $200 for it.

A lot of Willeford, Charles Williams, and Derek Raymond is out of print. Thats only the tip of the iceberg.

Too much stuff outa print and going for more money than I got. Can I cry on your shoulder? Buy me a beer and I'll think of some more sad stories. ;-)
