I just wanted to let the group know that I purchased this set off Steve, and the books arrived today.

The books are in amazing condition, and Steve was excellent to deal with.

I'm thrilled to finally have these books in my collection, and so a huge thanks to Steve for the opportunity. They look great with the Little Sisters of Eluria I picked up from Betts Books last week!

Cheers
James

Looks like you got a good deal James. I'm always amused by the beat up copies of the first trade printing of THE GUNSLINGER I see. If they only knew then what they know now! Of course I'm also amused at my own lack of foresight, since I could have bought 10 copies of the 1st trade edition way back then in the stone age before the Internet, cell phones and home PCs were invented!
