WTF Earthcore Prices

  • Profile photo of Peter Hardy

    Got mine back in 2005 for $20, had it shipped to Scott so it’s signed & personalised to me.

    I do need to find new copies of Infected & Contagious hardcovers, I just moved to a new place so i had to move a couple of thousand books and those two have just vanished. MAKES ME MAD AS HELL!

    I don’t like the chemical based one though. Not sure why they even make it considering how well the natural one works Undecided

breath as I opened the package. The thing that bothered me the most was that the seller put a big sticker over the bar code on the back. And I had a really hard time getting it off without damaging the cover. It was really stuck on there! I hate when people put stickers on books! Yell

But other than that, I’m very pleased with it. Laughing

    Been meaning to for ages but have so many 1st editions that I’m after that it’s hard to make the decisions

    Death, chaos and mayhem, the music of the night

    Profile photo of Belladonna420

    on a site called Abebooks.com from seller named Castle Rock. It was listed for $2.86 + $3.99 S&H! I should have known it was too good to be true!!! I placed the order and 2 days later I got an e-mail from the seller saying the order had been canceled due to a problem with my credit card – that they never actually identified – which is BS cuz I verified my info and everything was correct. AND there was also no problem with my funds!

    I e-mailed them back asking if they could please reprocess the order, to which they said they could not. I would have to wait for the item to be “restocked” and I’d have to place the order again. Well, when the book was relisted, the price was suddenly $39.39, which I agree is a more reasonable price, but WTF?!?!

    I e-mailed the seller AGAIN to ask why the price had gone up so dramatically in just a couple of days! I even still had the original order confirmation and all correspondences that had the price listed at $2.86. They told me their “prices change hourly because of stock changes”. Then they said they “think that [I] can find this book at a much better price on http://www.half.com“. Again, WTF?!

    I think this guy saw what others were charging for the book – especially after I pleaded with him to reprocess the order because I told him I was EXTREMELY interested in buying it – canceled my order, and relisted it at a more competitive price. Then when I bitched about it, he basically told me to go somewhere else! What kind of seller is that?!?!?

    Well, his price was still the best I found, but I wasn’t going to give this asshole my money anymore so I bought the copy from Amazon instead.

    Sorry for the rant, but this whole situation really pissed me off! I know it’s your money, but if you find the copy that this guy is selling (I found it on another site too, but it was still the same seller – Castle Rock) don’t buy it! I understand the whole “supply and demand” thing, but this guy was just a straight up asshole – and definitely not a Junkie! It would serve him right to not be able to sell it to anyone cuz he got greedy and tried to screw me over!

    OK, I’m done now. Thank you for your time!

    …..collector’s copy. I grabbed one for Ancestor a while back. I left the EARTHCORE PB up there for a couple days and no one snagged it. Guess no one wanted it. Rather odd, considering how much people are whining about how hard they are to find at a decent price. Cest la vie.

    Remember the FDO said “I have to rewrite EARTHCORE for Crown before I can write MT. FITZROY” !! So if you can get this version of EARTHCORE for a decent price now the value of your book will really increase when the FDO is done with the rewrite in the future !!!

    Nothing and nobody escapes my grasp you unworthy primitive talking monkeys !!

    With steeling the copy I was going to buy.

    Oh wait you said Amazon, sorry I was looking at a different site never mind.

    I considered buying the Like New one for $47 USD, decided I’d let someone else have it. It’s rare to see so many in the $40-$50 USD range.

    If it IS German, you shouldn’t have an issue returning it for a full refund. Annoying, but worth the risk. I’ve never understood why sellers have problems listing things correctly Frown I ran into that when I was looking for collectible hardcovers a while back. Had to order 4 copies before I got what I wanted.

    I check every weekend. I’ve been scanning the internet for over 12 months to get one. I was bought one for my 30th birthday and was do chuffed, only to open the cover for necol and found it was German print.

    I’m sorry sorry sorry. Amazon sucks for letting anyone do that. I’d never have taken that from a fellow junkie.

    Feeling bad bad bad. Even pulled up on the services to answer this post. :(

    Blame him , he started us all out on his crack, now we’re junkies for it. blame him or blame yourself.

    yes that is a first edition Ancestor, no you can’t have it, not even for 400 dalla on ebay.

    mMuhahaha

    Profile photo of Donald McGrath II

    It cost me less than $45 with expidited shipping(6.99) on Amazon to buy my EARTHCORE !!! that means the book cost me around $34 and it’s in real good condition !! but not mint condition. You do get what you pay for but you can save money and get a book in good condition without breaking the bank is all I’m saying!!

    Nothing and nobody escapes my grasp you unworthy primitive talking monkeys !!

    Profile photo of sadock

    ……but they wouldn’t be doing it if someone wasn’t willing to pay for it. That’s the way supply and demand works. If you want it now, you’re going to pay a lot. If you’re willing to wait, odds are you’ll be able to find a copy less expensive later. But you may not. That’s the risk you take.

    That’s right. Simply put a curse on the houses of those who are charging through the teeth for a copy. Pray to the dark one that a copy will be collected from the house of the now dead owner and make its way into a second hand book shop. One that you just happen to be passing one sunny mornong and BAM, there you go. Book’s all yours.

    I think it sounds plausible enough. Oooh yeah. Just there. That’s the spot.

    who were outsold by the FDO when the rush hit. I ordered Earthcore and Ancestor, had the order with shipping ready to rock for under $30. BAMMO! 2 days later I got an email from Amazon telling me the order had been kicked out because they didnt’ think I would want it because there was such a demand for it . . . yeah, Amazon, I didn’t want it. That’s why I ordered it . . . thanks.

    Will it be a rewrite, or as-is? Also, will there be beer at said Apocalypse?

    Nothing I can do about that, I’m afraid. There will be a hardcover edition of EARTHCORE in 2012 (note, the book might be the harbinger of the Aztec apocolypse). It’s out of print, and the marketplace determines the prices. That’s supply and demand.

    I thought it was kind of funny when i saw that. I’m surprised too tho cause i got a hold of the paperback Earthcore for under $15 back in 2007 off of ebay and in 3 short years the price skyrocketed.

    Don’t get me wrong I get it that it is rare and it is limited and has the possibility to become valuable. It is still crazy.

    the originial paper back ancestor and earthcore, they are collectors items now i mean with the book deal with crown you cant find those hardly any more yeah the price is rediculous but at the same times its not because like stated above what do you think will happen in 10 years or what do you think would happen if the FDO passed on? lord knows we dont want that but seriously if he didnt and someone had a originial copy of those two theywould have some solid cash in there hands

    …if you had a 1st edition of King’s 1974 debut book “Carrie”, you wouldn’t let it go for just a few bones either. Scott is positioned to become just as big as King or Crichton, and in ten or fifteen years that first-run copy of Earthcore is going to worth five times as much as you see it going for now.

    Profile photo of Danny Lundy

    It’s because it’s no longer in print and has become a collectors item. That and the original Ancestor are all I need to complete mine.

    Profile photo of Bradley Henry

    I am not at all happy. People on Ebay have to be smoking some serious crack. I looked up Earthcore and they had a buy it now for $227. Yes, I know it is the FDO but that works out to about $0.71 per flipping page. Sigler is good but damn that is just wrong. I saw it on Amazon for as high as $127. I love your work but Scary Perry wouldn’t be the only one losing his balls if I paid that price for a paperback.
