I had a Creative Writing major at Rider University. I think I still have a number of these books. I'll look around the house and get back to you.

Sorry to be a spoil sport, Dan, but the Book Bazaar rules specifically prohibit asking for wish listed books outside of  the system.  Please see "How to use this forum"    If I were #1 on the WL for any of these books, I'd be a little upset.

(6) No trying to jump the Wish List "line" by offering or asking for postable Wish Listed books.  Postable Wish Listed books should be posted and swapped "officially".  This of course does not apply to posts advertising an alternate ISBN  (or non-ISBN version) of a Wish Listed title; it is fine to advertise that you have those posted to your bookshelf.   

Many of the books on your son's list are indeed wish listed.
