I found a dead-tree, first edition, hard cover Green Mars, an installation one of the greatest sci-fi in the 90s and bought it for USD5 at Dawn Treader. I’ve been searching for the Martian Trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson for years in Malaysia but now, I even found a first edition hard cover Green Mars. If you are wondering how precious this book is, even Borders doesn’t have any hard cover edition of Red Mars, Green Mars or Blue Mars.
It’s a collection edition and I’ve bought it for merely USD5. OMG. OMFG! OOOMFG!
I think I’m going rich. At home back in Malaysia, I have a coin that dated back to the Straits Settlements and now, here in Ann Arbor, I have one of the greatest sci-fi novels in hard cover. Now, the hunt for dead-tree, first edition, hard cover Red Mars and Blue Mars has begun.
p/s – The __earthinc is still in renovation stage. I haven’t written a code for the gallery section yet.
