ZX Spectrum/Commodore 64 book

Post by mkilborn » Thu May 10, 2012 1:02 pm

Out of stock in the Imagine store. Just found out about it yesterday in the new issue of the magazine. D'oh. Any chance of it coming back into stock so I can order?

Unlikely, its very rare for any of the RG productions to be restocked or reprinted, hence the issue 1 gift with issue 100. Best get to ebay before the prices start to get really silly.

We will make sure it's not advertised again. Sorry about that.

I wish I'd bought it when I got the chance, left it...sold out! Only got myself to blame there though. Starting to creep up on ebay, unless you want to wait yonks, bite the bullet and pay a little more than face value, and then it's done. :)

It is in the imagine online store NOW. Must've got some more stock from somewhere...but in any case, if you want it, get it NOW. :)

I just did. :)

Just got one from the Imagine Shop. Thought I'd been an idiot and missed it! :D

Saw a couple of copies of it the other day in Exeter's whsmiths, unfortunately they were so dog-eared and mangled i'd be surprised *anyone* would pick them up and buy them. Should have been 1/2 price or something, at least.

I've seen quite a few copies in Lime Street Station Liverpool and WH Smiths in Liverpool today and yesterday. Has there been a reprint?

There are 2 heavily damaged ZX Spectrum/Commodore books left in my local WHSmiths also. 1/2 price for them would be about right as the damage went beyond simple shelfware. Sadly, the Bookazines just don't seem to stay pristine in WHSmith for long. :(

Maybe people who use WHSmith should use the concept of parting with their cash and buying the magazines/bookazines instead of treating that place like a library! :D

When I didn't have a job, I used to spend around two hours in WHSmith's reading magazines :lol:

There's two good quality copies in WHSmiths in Oxford Street Plaza. For some reason they aren't with the main Retro Gamer & other console/computing magazines and instead are on a top shelf with books on 3D-Art and Ipad games.
