Help help. I love to get my hands on a book by Day Taylor called Distant Dream. I can't tell for sure but it may follow the story from her two Cali books. Can't find it for sale anywhere, nor a book description and/or cover. If you ever come across it in the UBS can you let me know? Or at least look at the blurb and tell me if I should care or not? Thanks a heap.

Boy, Cathy, you picked a humdinger to look for! I searched everything that I could think of or find on line and there is zero - nada- zilch! Will keep an eye out at the UBS. I think if I ever run across it, I'll feel like I've won the lottery!!

I have a list of OOP authors on my phone that I use every time I go to a thrift store or UBS, and I go to a lot of them! I've added this author to my list. I'm happy to watch for it.

Cathy, Is this one that was published here or in the U.K. only?  I know I had to go to a U.K. seller to find The Black Swan, a little over a years ago, now I see copies of it everywhere I looked before.  I will also keep an eye out.

Unbelievable that a book can't be for sale anywhere at any price isn't it? Abe doesn't even have a listing FGS.

Letty, I ended up buying Black Swan from a UK seller as well. Much cheaper than the US edition. Crappy cover though ;(

I know it was not as good as the U.S. version was it.

I'll check Argos next time I go there.  I found Magnificent Dream but not Distant Dream...

Thanks everyone. Letty, no that cover didn't even come close. Although never worth paying the big bucks for the US one is it?
