Limited hard-cover edition reaches limit

It took a little while, or 3 years to be precise, but the special hard-back edition of the Acid Archives book is now completely out of print. This was a limited, individually numbered edition of 100 copies, signed by me on the title page. For the record, the hard-cover variants break down like this:

#1-25 are 'lettered', meaning that they are denoted by letters 'A' through 'Z' rather than numbers, with 'X' omitted. These copies were intended primarily for contributors and close friends, but a couple were sold to collectors. With the book came a bonus CD-R with 'mystery' music, which was 23 songs selected from obscure LPs featured in the book.

#26-75 are numbered in standard fashion, and sold to collectors and Acid Archives fans. The bonus 'mystery' CD-R described above was included.

#76-100 are numbered in standard fashion and sold commercially. The only difference is that the 'mystery' music CD-R was not included. 

All 100 copies are autographed and numbered by hand by the author. The copies were individually priced depending on how many were left and what mailing arrangments could be made, but $90-100 was a frequently logged price.

The very last copy I had is now sold, and the hard-back will never be reprinted. Next time you'll see it will be in the second hand market.

Thanks all for the interest. I'm noticing the regular soft-cover version is getting harder to find as well, we may have to do something about that.
