Ah - I sprang for the omnibus last year and can recommend it.  It's a very 
nice edition with enjoyable illustrations.  I found there were 3 or 4 copies 
available through abebooks at that time at varying prices.

It's hard to say which of the three books is my favorite.  I think it is 
usually Story of the Stone (or "SotS" in honor of Master Li's potations), 
but it's a mutable thing.  SotS has a most memorable (head)trip to the 
Underworld - one of my favorite things to chuckle over.

I know I found a Hughart website with an interview... let me see if I can 
find it again....

Hmm. Okay, the website is no longer being maintained, but it is archived. 
The picture doesn't come through, but still allows you to click through into
