    Have you seen this lot :

    David Gemmell Hardback Collection | eBay

    Not sure if it takes the **** or is good value for money once you work it out.

    What I don't get it why at the bottom he rates Waylander at £2,000 !!!!

    Seen he's taking the **** at best he has around £500 if that possibly a little more maybe a little less I don't think anyone that's just started collecting would shell out all that and anyone that's already collecting won't want half of those so IMO he won't shift em unless he splits

    Thats true, i would only want some it it but i'd value it a bit more as those omnibus version seem to go for about £200 each which I think is well over priced as there just re-prints really but others seem to think differently.

    Also the legend graphic novel signed can go for 100 to 200 as well.

    What about the other things he mentions ..

    xxxx EXTREMELY RARE PROOF COPY OF THE LEGEND OF DEATHWALKER xxxx

    Pictures of condition are available upon request but as so many books i will gladly send individual photographs to interested parties. the BONUS material is only available to the lucky person who "BUY IT NOW". Legend, King beyond the Gate, Waylander will cost you £300, £250, £2000 to complete the set and if your extremely lucky you will come across a Ghost King original...good luck with that.

    I paid £185 and &95 for perfect signed copies of Drenai tales Vol 1 and 2 which I may have paid a little more for.

    Vol 3 has a limited number run which I got at launch but is around £100 as well.

    So the three Drenai vols if hardback and signed in perfect condition are worth a good £400 in total.

    I think prices went silly after he sadly died and people took advantage of it imo. I don't mind paying good money for older stuff upto 100 a book but the new reprints and his last few books were easy to get before his passing and then shot upto the ones I saw at about £200 for ages, like this one :

    David Gemmell. DRENAI TALES 3 - signed limited edition | eBay

    I would have a complete collection of firsts some day and as many signed but not that fussed as I always like to meet the person and get the signing myself.

    his other bonus stuff inc this :

    THIS COLLECTION HAS TAKEN ME 15 YEARS TO COLLATE AND AS SUCH I HAVE GOT THE FOLLOWING TREASURES TO ADD TO THE PERSON WHO HITS THE "BUY IT NOW" BUTTON:-

    LEGEND 1ST EDITION PAPERBACK NEAR FINE

    WAYLANDER 1ST EDITION PAPERBACK NEAR FINE

    xxxx EXTREMELY RARE PROOF COPY OF THE LEGEND OF DEATHWALKER xxxx

    Pictures of condition are available upon request but as so many books i will gladly send individual photographs to interested parties. the BONUS material is only available to the lucky person who "BUY IT NOW". Legend, King beyond the Gate, Waylander will cost you £300, £250, £2000 to complete the set and if your extremely lucky you will come across a Ghost King original...good luck with that. For all fans of Davids work you will know the true value in buying this collection. This set is worth at least £1500-00 to a collector without the BONUS material. I will let the collection go as a "BUY IT NOW" go for £1200.00.

    He lists Legend, KBTG and Waylander in the pricing bit but misses out KBTG in the listing, maybe an error but aren't his prices way out for those in paperback. I've got a few white cover legends for far less and weren't the other 2 first released in HB anyway?

    I think I will aim to complete some Gemmell sets this year once work picks up, i like the artwork for the recent paperback drenai collections and think they would look good framed so will get them. I also like some of the recent foreign covers so thinking about starting to collect those in lieu of new gemmell releases.

    I think he means it will cost you to buy them in hardback to complete the collection. Not sure why he lists just those, without the compilations, he is missing 8 books isn't he?

    I have been collecting more than 15 years, but I don't have the first three in hardback, and 4-6 are library copies, they are just out of my league unless I stumble across a bargain.

    same here , almost 20 now I reckon since I started buying them on release day and before ebay etc it wasn't so easy to track down old ones.

    Once my spare funds pick up i think I will aim to complete as much as possible without paying extremes and just hope I find WKBS in an Oxfam one day.

    Read? I dont read any books, they are for gazing at, stroking occasionally before returning back to the shelf. :D

    The person tried to snipe me 6 seconds before the end of the auction, thankfully I had more on it than the person trying to snipe. I didn't think I was going to get it for £19, but it would have been nice.

    Very happy though, makes up for the last one that was snatched from my fingers!

    Nice, how did you find that on ebay?

    I've been looking out for anything by her and didn't see this, still looking for another spectrum game for me as well if anyone spots one, thanks.

    No money at all so I am not bidding (I may have done though!), and I only need Legend, but worth bidding on for the bottom two and Legend, Morningstar pops up (expensive) but not worth getting a library version, and I am sure I have seen non library versions of LG going for a reasonable amount.

    I have library versions of GK and LSoP - the ones in that auction look roughly the same condition as what I have already, but could be better.

    Good luck to anyone bidding on it. :smashin:
