I checked out the Virginia Editions a few months ago. I was drooling but too pricey for me.

I think I have a complete set of his books. The later works I got in hardback when they came out in the 80's, most of the rest are paperbacks--some 35- 40 years old. The Navy lost a few but I later replaced them. The Science Fiction Book Club has done some collections of a few of the juveniles which are good for reading copies.

A couple of years ago I was buying few first editions on eBay. The British first of "Stranger" was a pretty farthing with shipping and all but still was cheaper than a US one. I did get a couple of juveniles in kinda ratty library editions but that was the only way they were released back then. Of course the later ones are cheaper.

Might be time to read the unabridged "Stranger" again. Thanks for the reminder.
