While checking my Amazon ranking (it’s a compulsion, and will someday be duly recognized as such in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), I noticed that a merchant was attempting to sell the Lulu version of Hugh and Bess for a whopping $364. The name of the seller: cheapbargainbook. (Two other sellers are trying for a more modest $90 or so.)
Somehow I doubt anyone will be paying this (especially since the Sourcebooks edition, which has been revised slightly, is coming out on August 1), but if you do, you deserve a little something extra, maybe a DNA sample or something. (I’d offer to be an egg donor, but I’m way too old.) Just shoot me an e-mail with proof of purchase and I’ll arrange it.
