I have not one BSP-reading-copy in hardcover.
You aren't missing anything. I have regular old late-printing copies of all of the BSP hardcovers, but I never pull them down to read them (when I was tracking all of them down years ago Abel said, "Why do you want those?" and I said, "I don't know."). I always reach for the paperbacks. The hardcovers just sit there on the shelf looking important.That makes two of us.
That makes three of us. I do have two BSP hardcovers (later printings), but I always read the paperbacks. Now, I´m wondering why I bought those two hardcovers in the first place, but I think it was because I wanted to see what they looked like after many people here had written highly of them. That said, I would´nt mind having one of the signed and numbered copies with the drawing of the little man with the bottle, but they're unfortunately too pricey for me.That makes two of us. 8-))
