    Does anyone know where I can get these books from? I've tried looking on amazon and found a few in 'acceptable' condition, though having looked at the criteria for 'acceptable' I'd rather classify them as 'do not buy unless you're really really desperate and have no other choice'. I'm guessing I can't get them any more, which is a shame as I've enjoyed the ones I've read.

    I've never heard of these, but you can always see if your local bookstore can order in a copy (especially if you live near a Borders or B&N). They're pretty good about that if they don't have it in stock.

    We don't have those in the UK, but I'll be near Waterstones on Monday so I can always ask then.

    Yeah, books in Waterstones in UK arrive prety quikly. I stayed in london for a few days, ordered a novel on my first day and it arrived after 72 hours, when I was still in the country. Great, isn't it?

    If you are near London you could try asking in Forbidden Planet as well. They do sell juvenile sci-fi and fantasy as well as adult.

    I tried Waterstones and two libraries but I couldn't find any of them. I'll be in London next week for CE so I'll have a look in FP while I'm there.

    Did you ask Waterstones if they could order it?

    Yup, it seems that they're out of print now.

    FP might still have them. Heck, I found a few of the old Glove of Darth Vader series there in the SW section awhile back. They also recently still had some of the Jedi Apprentice and Jedi Quest books. I think you'd have better luck there than with a mainstream bookstore.

    NYCitygurl: it could be worse, there's a series of books I like, I can get all but book 5 which I want to read soon but it won't be published until later this year when it'll be in an omnibus with a book I already own.

    LAJ: ooh, cool, I'll have to write out a list to take with me.

    The SW juvenile books are in the SW book section, not with the other young adult books (unless they've changed things). So if you are after any of the series I mentioned try that section first. I think they had the Boba Fett YA books as well last time I was there.
