This is not a sales pitch, as I have no commercial interest here, just a public service announcement. For some years, a trickle of brand spanking new Bloomsbury Hardback copies of the second and third Armageddon novels (i.e. first editions) have been trickling into the modern world through some kind of pseudo-cosmic time collander, and an ABE bookseller on Merseyside currently has no fewer than FIVE of each title available at knock-down prices:

A marvellous opportunity to fill gaps in your RR collections. If you can work out how to contact him directly, you might even get cheaper p&p. But please don't ask Big Bob to sign them as it might be misconstrued as reconfabulation.

As far as I have been able to ascertain, these books never went out of print and you can order them from Bloomsbury. I still get royalty statements from Bloomsbury, that they have sold about twenty copies a year.
Bonkers, eh?

I can add to that a classic Abacus paperback edition of the Brentford trilogy for just eight quid plus delivery:

Definitely not still in production.

Time was, I used to buy these rarities up from ABE books members whenever they appeared, but since I own everything under the sun by now I might as well let other people source them at cost too...

Thankyou for that - I've been looking for one for a while.
They turned the order round really quickly too!
