Dear world:

All I want is to find a copy of Brian Bagnall's "On the Edge: The Spectacular Rise And Fall of Commodore" for a reasonable price.

Ok, I understand that it's been out of print for a while, but is $200-$400 really justifiable for a book about a couple of guys who built a neat little computer 30 years ago? I mean, you could buy a brand new C-64 for that kind of money back when they were still being made. Ok, so they also designed the MOS6502, which you could argue revolutionized the home computer market, but still, it's not like we're talking about an original-bound 1803 first printing of Claude Louis Berthollet's two-volume "Essai de Statique Chimique" or anything. This book was published in 2006, for crying out loud. I picked up my copy of Steven Levy's "Hackers" (arguably the seminal work in the genre) for something like $10, and I think Clifford Stoll's "The Cuckoos Egg" was even less than that at the local secondhand paperback store.

(Which reminds me, I've still got something like $50 in credit there, and it's been almost two years since I last visited. On the plus side, they keep their records on 3x5 cards in a box, so I doubt they purge their database very often.)

I like when the roads are dusty and I slide that hoe gracefully around a bend

You can do that on dry pavement with a stock Miata with a shitty GReddy kit on it.

Let me know when you find a cheap source for rare books, I'd like to get a copy of Brian Schul's "Sled Driver"

When you find it, see if they have a copy of Peter Brock's book on Cobra Daytona Coupes for less than a $1000 (I'm serious).


EDIT:

Do you realize it's about to be reprinted in hardcover under a slightly different title?

Commodore: A company on the edge

It's been "about to be reprinted" for over a year now. The release date keeps on getting pushed and pushed. I've even contacted the publisher (a fly-by-nite little outfit called Variant Press) and they were no help at all. The lady I spoke to just babbled something about "You must find the Jade Monkey before the next full moon" and then ran shrieking into the darkness, being chased by a dimensionless orb which, if I'm not mistaken, was singing the chorus to "Island In The Sun" over and over again, backwards, in Aramaic.

I'm not sure I trust these people.
