Wow, That's pretty amazing! Somebody made a great deal and a lot of money if he decides to resell it. Hopefully, the buyer was a Buk collector and not a book seller.

Well, timing is everything in life, isn't it.

But it could have also disappeared because the seller realized his price was 50 to 100 times lower than everyone else on that.

The ABE prices on that issue of Story are ridiculous anyway, but then what ABE prices aren't ridiculous.
