You guys should try two places online: first ebay, where I have found
Archer's Goon, several Simon Hawke (time travel sf--not bad at all but not

some old obscure books (yeah the Gemma series!).  The other place is, which is a consortium-type site of lots of bookstores; they have
old books and they're pretty inexpensive, too.

And because I keep forgetting:

Congratulations to all the new parents and babies!!!!!!!!!!!
