The Wisdom of Wyrd

Postby Teileag » 01 Apr 2010, 14:01

Hello everybody,

I would like to read Brian Bates' "The Wisdom of Wyrd" but it seems that this book is out of print and being sold for horrendous prices in the obvious places(+100 euros!!! :duck: on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk). Does anybody here have a good idea wher I might find it for a normal price or woudl anyone be willing to sell a copy? Of course, now you know what it's worth, you might rather sell it on Ebay... :huh:

That means it's worth the buy? Good to know!! I just stumbled over the title today and looked at Bates' website and it sounded very interesting... and now you know that you own a very valuable book :hiya: .

Oh... no!! Tesco failed and the link to Abe Books is not for "The Wisdom of Wyrd" but for "The Way of Wyrd", a different book... Just in case someone knows where to find this book ("Wisdom" not "Way" :o !!), please, please let me know!
