Hi gang...thought I'd start this thread and see what happens.


I'm looking for the book Slammerkin.  I know it's posted, it says 14 available.  Just wondering if any of y'all have it posted so I can give a credit to someone I know.

Please remember several people have chosen to "turn off" signatures so if you have stuff listed there, we don't see them! :) 

(I can't deal with the blinkies and myriad lines of text, so I'm one who doesn't have sigs on.)

I'm loking for a couple of book by Laurence J. Brown, Cold Heart, Cruel Hand: A Novel of Hereward the Wake and The Fen Rebellion of 1070-1071 and Housecarl. I've had them both on my wishlist for ages.

I'm also dying for Against A Crimson Sky by James Conroyd Martin. This one is still only out in HC and I'm sure I'll get a copy eventually. The first two books are harder to find, I think.

Excellent idea for a thread Michelle!

Kathryn in the court of six queens by Anne Merton Abbey.

Anyone have this hard to find book? If you'll consider lending it to me I will buddy a credit for your troubles and cover postage.

I have another... A book I have been trying to find for ages and if anyone has it, or the DVD/VHS, please let me know. Lots of goodness will come your way, I promise ;-)

Our Friends in the North by Michael Eaton, and the DVD/VHS of same name.

I finally found this thread. I posted a new one because I didn't see it before. Sorry!

Anyway, I updated my "Looking for List," (it is the second post) so if anyone has any of them and is willing to swap them out when they have finished reading them, please let me know!
