I found a copy of LAKE OF THE LONG SUN at an ANNIE'S, a seemingly
once-prominent chain of used bookstores that specializes in "genre"
fiction, especially romance.  I have the good fortune to have one of
the last ones (at least locally) literally across the street from my
house and so while I was scaring up used Whitley Strieber paperbacks I
scanned the rather small SF section and there was LAKE, which I
already owned but bought to give to a friend who was reading my copies
of the series.

My only real problem with my paperback NEW SUN books is how on all but
the first they crop Don Maitz's artwork to within an inch of its life.
