I too score Wolfe books for loaning at used book
stores: On my last move I discovered I had 4 copies of
Shadow ( I kept thinking of people I'd loan it
to...;->) and I know that I've loaned at least that
many to classmates/co-workers over the years. Whats
1.50 to spread a little evangelical cheer? ;->

and as for scarcity, I tend to find pretty good
selections of the Urth stuff, less so for BotSS.
