Perseverance pays off

I remember reading, quite a while ago, about the impossibility to get hold of "Scenes from the Dwarf", a small book from Penguin originally costing 60p, which contains a few scenes and deleted scenes from Red Dwarf.

In fact, even on TOS's Interview with Drumjay it says:

And the toughest find? "There's one book in particular, which is the Penguin's Scenes From The Dwarf. It was only published in limited numbers. I've only seen a few of these books listed anywhere in five years, making it Red Dwarf's rarest book, and can cost anything from £30 upwards if you're lucky." This small mini-book originally retailed at 60p.

Hmm. £30 upwards if you're lucky.

Which makes me all the happier that Amazon have just confirmed my long standing Marketplace request as being fulfilled for the ever so steep £2.67.

Thanks Amazon. Thamazon.

Thirty fucking quid? You're kidding me.

I've got it. And it was bought for me for a negligible amount of money in a charity shop...

Well, yes, I thought £30 was way OTT as well, but then this was probably in Fan Publications and the like, and so they knew a high price can be commanded.

But I'm happy for £2.67. That seems very reasonable for a rare book, I just hope it's in good condition!

Gah, my hyperlink didn't work.

That's my thing about it, if you haven't seen it already.

TBH, that's probably where I found out about it from :)

Yeah, Amazon Marketplace is excellent! I got mine for a similar price.
