Let me know if you find a solution and need a copy.

And I had better apologize: I wanted to _spend_ money helping others get a
temporary solution to their "Skiver" hunger, not in any possible way to
prevent Nat Case from _earning_ money on the little book. Sorry!!!

I had read somewhere in the archive that there were about 40-50 members on
the list sometime this summer, and I assumed there might be about 10-20
people who were interested - which could be a bit expensive for me to
handle on a one-to-one basis.

I was not proposing that hundreds of Americans and Ozzies should distribute
numerous bootleg copies, merely that it would be possible for one US
citizen to receive US-stamped envelopes from a few other US citizens and
pass on the copy like the Archer tape.  Ah never meant no harm, 'onest!

Thanks, Deborah, you are doing a darn good job of it and I hope you know
how much others appreciate it. People like me for instance.  :)

>have I seen you on child_lit?

*blush*   Yes, I try to keep my big mouth shut there.  I joined it 1 1/2
years ago to see if the list could recommend any good books - and help me
learn about new DWJ books too, of course, before they go out of print
again.  I have met some very nice new penpals there.
