Ever heard of a used book store? I picked up a first printing of HTTE in hardcover, with a laminant covering on the dust jacket for 12 bucks back in July. I also picked up a hardcover of TLC for 11 bucks a couple months after that. Now all I need is a paperback of DFR so I can have the trilogy in both formats. Besides, you're going to get the used book in probably pretty good condition if not almost brand spanking new condition, and not have to pay 30 bucks for it. In fact, here's a link to the website of the store I buy most of my used and new books at... and I've already bothered to search "STar Wars Timothy Zahn" for you. http://www.powells.com/s?header=Search+Form&kw=star+wars+timothy+zahn Also, comics were mentioned earlier. The Last Command comic already has a gigantic portrait of Padme in Leia's suite. The only tweeking I want done to the comic adaptations is for HTTE to have Luke's lightsaber properly colored green rather than blue.
