    I will show some before and after photos and hopefully my poor photography skills will mask the magic tape and make it look perfect :)

    That is a steal as retail was probably 17.99 when it came out, no amazon discount back in those days maybe a few pounds of at waterstones if you were lucky.

    Thanks for the pics before , must have been seconds in it...

    They dont seem to have any pictures that I could find of any of their collections. While I admit that one persons Hero in the Shadows is the same as anothers, where are the early books and all the other bits and pieces less than half a zozen of us have posted in this and the bookcase thread alone.

    I was interested in this though:

    Photo and image hosting, free photo galleries, photo editing | Photobucket

    ...and found his ebay profile, but the sale was a month before the ebay listings go back to so I cant see how much it went for. :(

    Oh, and there was mention about the Spectrum game as well, and a link to an emulator:

    World of Spectrum - Sinclair Infoseek - Play game

    If you have a set price in mind thats not too high, want to sell them on here.

    I'd be interested mate but on an infraction till tomorrow or sunday so couldn't do a sale till then.

    Just remember that no trades to be conducted via PM and set up threads in the relevant section. You can always say in the thread that the item is reserved for a specific user as well.

    The game was double bubble wrapped and well packaged, but the internal case for the book is like eggshell after nearly 30 years, meaning that it did not take much for the internal section to look like this:

    Some magic tape fixes, and I am aware that a three toed sloth could have done a better job, but it was fiddly, and you cant get behind the bits to fix them properly.

    That's mighty squashed probably the plastic that's deteriorated with age and become brittle

    You might be able to swap the case with another but its a massive oversized job?

    There is a second hand stall I pass in the market and will keep an eye out next time.

    i guess the black cover paperback is a bit rare also as it doesn't exist in that format anywhere else?

    In regards to those books mate, probably all 3 if price is right if you can wait till after the weekend to make a thread I think my infraction will be off by then but cannot get an answer from the mod who placed it to confirm before. Cheers.

    If youd prefer to complete on eBay I'd do that would just add a buy it now with best offer and wait for your offer agreed before hand obviously to save time

    I don't know, some people have none while others have three! I am assuming you paid a good price as well?

    Now, where did that 'ban member' button go? :D

    Sorry new to the forums! I have a book by david gemmell, "Sword in the Storm"

    UK edition, (with the wolf on the front cover) Hardback 1st edition, and it is signed by david gemmell (it just says his name) I was going to list it on ebay but I was wondering about how much it is worth roughly? As I might put it up as a buy it now, its not price clipped, not a library book, spine is good

    any help would be appreciated thanks!

    Welcome to the forums!

    There is currently a signed in good condition book the same as yours with a BIN of £35, which seems a very good price - some of the Rigante books were going for more a few years back.

    I would buy this one if I didnt have it already:

    David Gemmell Sword In The Storm 1st Edition Signed Hardback | eBay

    For everyone else, if you dont have this, then grab it - Knights seems to be cheap for some reason, and although not signed, it looks a nice copy - this is not me by the way, I have been watching it and its come back up for resale a few times and I dont know why.

    DAVID GEMMELL - KNIGHTS OF DARK RENOWN - HB 1ST | eBay
