    Well I did say it was a very good price and that if I didnt have that already, I would have bought it.....I reckon if it had been an auction, the book could have gone for less unless someone other than cdavison would have bid, so a BIN price was probably best.

    From my experience of sword in the storm it seems to go more like £50+ on bids but £30 posted in opinion is good

    While I may have diligently watched eBay and recorded prices that was a few years back and I no longer do so, now simply concentrating on books that I am missing, giving a rough estimation on prices - for instance I paid less than £30 for a signed Rigante book a few yeasts back.

    I watch anything that catches my interest really even if I already have it just to see what it sells for alought over the last year one person seems to have bought nearly every rare/signed gemmell book and put them up for sale on abe after receiving them at a mark up of course but they seemed to have stopped buying at the minute

    This looks good and not a bad price I suppose :

    Legend by David Gemmell (Hardback, 1993) A Graphic Novel | eBay

    if I was flush I'd go for it but out of budget for a few months.

    Don't forget to get your pre-orders in for Stella Gemmells book due in april i think.

    And if anyone spots another Legend Spectrum and they don't want it please let me know.

    Look at the bottom left front corner of the cover, and in the open pages, look at the mid top and mid bot. Could be just the camera, but it looks warped to me?

    I would definitely ask for more pictures if anyone was going for it.

    It does look a little crinkly possibly from damp I think that's expensive usually on bids these go for around £160

    I don't mean losing a bidding war that's the whole point of eBay - I lost out on a book I was the winning bidder on as someone contacted the seller and offered a price to end the auction days before it was supposed to end without letting me know in case I would have counter bid.

    Deciding whether to get arsey with the seller or not, as they have not replied to my question on ending the bid early, there is no reason listed, and its against ebay's policy to end a transaction.

    How can I end my listing immediately?

    Unsigned ones go Upto around £30 on eBay for a very good copy assuming yours is very good I'd ask £40-£50 possibly even more
